From the owner

Arwen Cottage is a beautiful Suffolk fisherman's period cottage, believed to date back to around the 1800's. It's a delightful two-storey holiday cottage in the heart of Aldeburgh, 25 yards from the beach. Arwen cottage sleeps 4 people.

A gorgeous haven for couples and families, it is a wonderful holiday base throughout the year, with coast, countryside, culture & food on the doorstep. Days at the beach, sailing, horseriding, fishing, birdwatching, relaxing galore!

This traditional Victorian fisherman's cottage is in the heart of Aldeburgh on a quiet street, 25 yards from the beach and 25 yards from Aldeburgh high street.

Arwen cottage is close to an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, characterful pubs, excellent art galleries, a cinema and a theatre. The cottage is also a few paces from the most famous fish and chip shops in the country.

There are excellent restaurants just a couple of minutes walk away. As you step out of the cottage door the promenade and beach are a few paces in one direction, and the high street just yards away the other way. Despite the perfect location, the cottage is delightfully peaceful.

There is also public parking just outside the cottage.

The cottage has been re-furbished in a light but luxurious style and has been brought into the 21st century, with contemporary kitchen and bathroom and very comfy furnishings. On the ground floor it has a lovely cosy living room and dining space with a nice bathroom. There is a private sunny courtyard with outside furniture too.

Arwen cottage is a lovely cosy cottage, full of character and exceptionally comfortable, clean and well-equipped, including Wi-Fi. A welcome pack (tea, coffee, fresh milk, cake/flapjack/similar) is included.

Guest Access

Public parking is on the road just outside the cottage or in nearby car parks.

Interaction with Guests

We live not far from Arwen cottage so generally will be available to welcome guests. On occasions when we are away, arrangements will be made to let you have a key. We will be available by phone or by email during your stay for any questions. We want your stay to be as enjoyable as possible so please let us know at the time of booking if you have any specific requests as well as throughout your stay.

The Neighbourhood

The house is situated in the heart of Aldeburgh just one street from the sea front (25 yards) - a picturesque Suffolk seaside town particularly popular among music lovers, bird watchers, walkers and artists.

Situated close to Snape Maltings concert hall and host to the Aldeburgh Music Festival, Aldeburgh is known also for it's connection to Benjamin Britton, who lived in the town for many years.

The High Street hosts a number of good restaurants, pubs, antique shops, bookshops, bakers, butchers, fishmongers, and two fish and chip shops.
