Arwen Cottage is a beautiful Suffolk fisherman's period cottage, believed to date back to around the 1800's. It's a delightful two-storey holiday cottage in the heart of Aldeburgh, 25 yards from the beach. This traditional seaside fisherman cottage sleeps 4 people and offers the perfect cosy retreat for families and couples seeking a relaxing holiday or a romantic break. Arwen cottage is just a stone's throw from the beach and perfect as a base for touring the picturesque suffolk coastal area.

The space
A gorgeous haven for couples and families, it is a wonderful holiday base throughout the year, with coast, countryside, culture & food on the doorstep. Days at the beach, sailing, horseriding, fishing, birdwatching, relaxing galore!

This lovely 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 a lovely cosy cottage, full of character and exceptionally comfortable, clean and well-equipped, including the use of unlimited Wi-Fi and super fast broadband.

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 shop in the country.

There are excellent restaurants just a couple of minutes walk away - The Lighthouse, Regatta and Brudenell are all excellent as well as several others. 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 well-equipped kitchen and bathroom. There is a private sunny courtyard with outside furniture too.

On the first floor it has a master bedroom which is spacious and peaceful with Victorian sash windows and a solid wood frame king size bed. There is also a guest bedroom, which is furnished with a bunk-bed made of metal frame and superior quality mattresses, covered with natural linen.

Arwen cottage is a lovely fisherman's cottage, full of character and exceptionally comfortable. We provide complimentary toiletries and essential pantry items such as coffee, tea, sugar, biscuits, salt and pepper.

Where you’ll be

Aldeburgh, United Kingdom

The house is situated in the heart of Aldeburgh just one street from the sea front (25 yards). This picturesque Suffolk seaside town is particularly popular among music lovers, bird watchers, walkers and artists.

Aldeburgh and the surrounding area has inspired many authors and poets in the past but the most famous son of the town is Benjamin Britten who founded the Aldeburgh Music Festival which now has worldwide acclaim and is held every year in June at Snape Maltings.

Fishermen still pull their colourful boats up on the shingle beach and sell fresh fish from the picturesque huts. The wide, mainly Georgian high street has many attractive buildings whilst the seafront properties all have commanding views of the beach and the North Sea. Sailing is popular on the nearby Alde estuary where a large variety of yachts can be seen at summer weekends.

Aldeburgh’s high street hosts a number of good restaurants, pubs, antique shops, bookshops, bakers, butchers, fishmongers, and the best fish and chips shop in the country.

We are Tim and Lucy and we live on the stunning Suffolk Heritage Coast with our son Jack and our daughter Emily. We have been successfully letting our cottages: Arwen cottage in Aldeburgh, Thimble cottage in Southwold, Albion House and Stable cottage in Saxmundham and Castle Hill Cottage in Framlingham via our companies Aldeburgh Seaside Cottages, Southwold Seaside Cottages and Seaside Luxury Cottages. Our properties are self-catering and advertise on AirBnb. We are thrilled to have met such interesting people and received such lovely feedback for it.

Tim was born and bred in beautiful Suffolk and I was born in Lima-Peru and brought up in Milan-Italy. I speak Spanish, Italian, French, German and English. As my husband’s family is from Suffolk we have strong ties with this beautiful part of the world. Having travelled extensively we have been inspired by the good things we have come across in properties we have stayed in. As you can tell, we are passionate about providing somewhere special that our guests will love, enjoy and return to.

We feel incredibly lucky to be able to live in this part of the world and are loving sharing our cottages with some amazing people from the Airbnb community. If we had a motto to live by it would have to be Maya Angelou's: “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style...”
