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.

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.

This beautiful period fisherman's cottage is compact in its size but full of charm and character. Please note that as with many cottages built in this era, the steps to the 1st floor are quite steep, care needs to be taken. Please check the photographs before booking. House rules: Arwen Cottage is our much loved family cottage which we're delighted to share with like-minded guests. We expect our guests to treat it as their own home; with care and love and most of all enjoyment! Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at this time. The cottage is a no smoking area. Unfortunately the cottage it's not suitable for children under 4 years old. This is due to the cottage's original Victorian steep stairs. But we are happy to make an exception providing the parents assume full responsibility and bring their own baby equipment. There are no disabled facilities. The cottage accommodates four guests maximum. Check-in and Check-out times are strict. Early check in or late check out available by request (additional fee applicable). It is a residential area so consideration for those around the cottage would be appreciated.More
