Thorpeness House’s grounds extend almost from the Village Green to the shingle beach, where this ornate Holiday Home overlooks the North Sea. From the privacy of the Estate’s gardens’; revel in the astonishing views of the Heaths and the prominent House in the Clouds, which is a famous local landmark. A half an hour walk south, along the coastline, will bring visitors to the neighbouring village of Aldeburgh. For those seeking a more scenic adventure, Cragg Path is a perfect opportunity to indulge in the RSPB North Warren Reserve. It comes as no surprise that this region is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)!
In the early 1900’s, this once quiet Hamlet underwent some dramatic development that saw its status elevated to a desirable holiday destination. Today, many of the mock Tudor houses are used for housing and local businesses, giving this enchanting village a sense of antiquated marvel. At Thorpeness’s nucleus, a magical man-made Meare can be discovered, which is themed on the creator’s interpretation of Peter Pan’s Neverland. Today, Regattas and Firework Displays are held in this dreamy spot.
The popular village of Aldeburgh is walkable in less than 30 minutes, so Excellence Luxury Villas highly recommend recurring stopovers. Full of pleasant independent eateries, Art Galleries and Arts & Crafts shops - you’ll feel as if you have uncovered an unblemished traditional English Hamlet.
Benjamin Britten was so enchanted with Aldeburgh, he chose it as his home till his death in 1976. His legacy - The Aldeburgh Festival - takes place every year during June and is considered a must for lovers of the arts.
There’s lots to do so visit the Aldeburgh Moot Hall Museum, or maybe try your hand at sailing a miniature in the Boating Pond. You might even be lucky enough to catch the local Lifeboat Station during a practice session in the North Sea. After ambling along the sun-drenched coastline, recompose yourself in one of the many idiosyncratic taverns for a quick refreshment. If you’re feeling peckish, what better meal to have than freshly caught fish with a generous side of chips. You’ll have decide which of the two renowned Chippies is best though; The Aldeburgh Fish & Chip Shop or Golden Galleon…this may require repeat visits!
Aside from the absorbing landscape, this region has become incredibly popular amongst devotees of the Art’s. Thousands flock here every year to celebrate the likes of the Aldeburgh Carnival, Thorpfest & Latitude Festival, or simply just to visit Snape Maltings. Others visit to be absorbed by the history and beauty epitomised by Dunwich Heath, Sutton Hoo – Woodbridge and Orford Ness National Nature Reserve.
