About this listing

The guest bedroom is furnished with 2 small single beds (190cm L x 80cm W x 40cm H) made of a solid oak wood frame and quality hypoallergenic mattresses and superior bedding.

Other things to note
DIRECTIONS AND PARKING
Arrive in Aldeburgh from any direction and drive south along Aldeburgh High Street, past the Fish & Chips shop. Turn left onto Hertford Lane and Brudenell Street will be the first street on the right just before you reach the sea.
There is very good availability of free on-street parking in this area of Aldeburgh, even in peak season. Sophie & Harry have not ever needed to park further than 1 minute from the cottage. Most often, a parking spot is available within 10 seconds from the cottage front door. Please call or message Sophie for favourite parking spots.
The on-street parking is free, unlimited time and the usual parking rules apply.
1. CHILDREN - Unfortunately the cottage is not suitable for children from crawling age to 5+ years. This is due to the cottage's original Victorian stair spindles being far enough apart for a small child to fit through.
The cottage is perfect for babies and children 5+. We look forward to remodelling the staircase spindles in the near future so that children of all ages can enjoy holidays in the cottage. We are very sorry for the confusion listing the cottage as suitable for all children. There was understandably not an option to select a childproof age bracket of 6m - 5yrs.
2. GUEST ROOM BEDS - Please note that the two single beds in the guest bedroom are small singles (80cmW x 190cmL x 40cmH).
3. CARING FOR THE COTTAGE - No food or coloured drink on soft furnishings. This includes red wine. You are most welcome to eat and drink merrily at the table, in the kitchen and in the courtyard.
4. Please keep board games and art supplies in good condition for all guests by making sure all pieces stay with the correct game and are packed away neatly.

We are a young family who recently moved from Australia to England to spend time with Harry's English family. We live in London. Every chance we get we love to escape to beautiful Aldeburgh. We renovated our cottage by the sea to build happy memories with family and friends. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
