Set in an idyllic location next to a nature reserve just outside Aldeburgh, this really is an escape from it all. Recently renovated to the highest standards, the cottage is a beautiful combination of designer and vintage interiors.

The space

Welcome to White Cottage, just within the borders of Aldeburgh, Suffolk in the east of England.

The cottage is set in an idyllic location on the historic Sailors Path, within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a stone's throw from the fascinating Hazlewood Marshes nature reserve on the Alde estuary.

Recently renovated to the highest standards by an interior designer, the cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. It can accommodate up to 7 + 2 on a sofa bed. A baby cot is available on request.

The property enjoys 1/3 of an acre garden and is situated amongst 3 acres of common land leading down to the estuary and marsh land. Children (and adults) can play, build dens and swing on the rope ladder looking towards far reaching views over the estuary and Iken. For a real Swallows and Amazons adventure this is a wonderful holiday break where everyone can relax!

The property comes fully equipped with all you will need for a restful holiday so you can rest in the knowledge that you will have a luxurious and pampering stay.

The main living area is open plan and includes the kitchen and sitting area with a selection of vintage and designer furniture. Cosy up next to the wood burner in the winter or cook up a storm on the barbecue and gaze at the stars in the summer - the cottage is a perfect get-away for all seasons.

The kitchen is well equipped with a hand blender, Nespresso machine, Le Creuset kitchenware, Nutribullet and a wonderful selection of crockery, sourced locally.

Leading from the kitchen is the family bathroom with a bath and shower and Suffolk handmade tiles to finish it off.

The master bedroom: The room has a wonderful ensuite bathroom with large roll top bath and walk in shower. Clad in reclaimed wood it feels very much like you are a luxurious yacht looking up from bath to the stars through the roof light...Lie back with a glass of something cold and breathe...

The 2nd bedroom has a double bed with a single bunk bed perfect for a couple or kids. The room can sleep up to 4 children all tucked up cosily with hot water bottles and cosy throws!

The 3rd bedroom: Upstairs there is a loft room with wonderful views out across the garden to the estuary. It has a double futon and is a very cosy space. Please note that it is accessed via a spiral staircase which is not suitable for small children or people who are not sure-footed.

The garden is a space for relaxing, finding spaces to make camps and just spending time listening to the birds!

Outside on the terrace there are deck chairs, seating in 2 areas and a large Weber barbecue with a pizza oven.

For those that like bird watching, the Hazlewood Marshes, just a 5 minute walk away, have just been reopened; you can read more about the marshes here: (URL HIDDEN). Even if bird-watching is not your thing, it is hard not to be entranced by the birdsongs and calls carried up to the cottage. And you're likely to spot other wildlife too, including the occasional mole, stoat, and the ubiquitous rabbits! If you like jumping there is also a 14ft trampoline in the garden.

The cottage gives our family such pleasure every time we visit. We hope you love it as much as we do!

White Cottage is as idyllic as it appears. Very beautiful interiors with the right balance between design and comfort. A very relaxing space that we didn't want to leave, would love to stay again.

This is a wonderful place to stay and relax. Gorgeous walks just outside the door. Superb facilities and really well thought out kitchen. Shop local in Alderburgh for super fresh fish straight off the boat. Fantastic butcher and deli. All you need.

A great place to stay if visiting Aldeburgh and the surrounding area. There's so much to do in the area and its a short drive from the house. After a busy day it was lovely to come back to the large quiet garden. The kids loved the brilliant selection of books, toys, trampoline and swing. It's the right balance of luxury and relaxed, crisp white bed linen and fluffy towels but all still kid friendly.

We had an excellent stay. A beautiful cottage with a gorgeous garden, well equipped with lovely, cosy beds and luxurious bathrooms set in a peaceful and secluded location yet within easy reach of the beach and towns. The perfect place to stay, thank you!

We are a family of four, who fell in love with White Cottage when we first stayed there in 2014. We became regular guests, and were delighted to be able to buy the cottage from Nikki and Martin, who had lovingly restored it, in the winter of 2016.

We love the wide open spaces, the walks along the marshes, and having Aldeburgh on the doorstep.

We hope you like the cottage as much as we do; we'd love to hear any comments you have on what you like and what can be improved.

(Please note that while all reviews on this page relate to White Cottage, some relate to the period when it was owned by Nikki and Martin. We hope they nonetheless give a good idea of what White Cottage has to offer.)
