Description

(Reference number: 79213) Get a taste of heritage Britain with a stay at this sophisticated Aldeburgh townhouse. Aldeburgh was once home to the composer Benjamin Britten and is now known for Maggi Hambling’s arresting contemporary sculpture in his honour on the beach. This Suffolk town is a quintessential slice of English charm and so is this home. Velvet Chesterfield sofas, William Morris-inspired wallpapers and original fireplaces introduce notes of British eccentricity without going overboard. Take tea on the garden patio area or settle down with a good novel by the bay window. There’s a lovely family-sized dining table with some fun wallpaper to admire while you tuck into supper. For art fans, the Aldeburgh Festival is a perennial draw to the area, but all year round you’ll be able to enjoy secluded beach walks, antique shops and Britten’s former abode, The Red House which is open for guests to visit. Home truths: *Pets are allowed but if you are bringing more than one small dog, please ask the host in advance *If you're travelling with a little one, a travel cot and high chair are available on request *The zip-and-link bed will be made into twin beds unless you request it to be a super king *The heating system can be a bit noisy at times
