The detail

This pretty, quintessential seaside cottage makes a perfect base for exploring the beautiful Suffolk coastline where guests can discover all the delights of this lovely region. Painted blue and white, with an orange lifebuoy fitted to the top floor balcony, Seahorse is the epitome of seaside living. Just a literal stone's throw from the sea, guests can sit outside on the pretty terrace, or on the balcony, and let their senses be overwhelmed by the sounds of the waves, the scent of the salty water and the sight of the sun shining on the waves. Inside, it is everything guest's would wish for in a seaside cottage.

Simple and stylish mid-century furnishings have been use to create a calm, uncluttered environment. An Ercol sofa and armchairs are comfy and welcoming with their abundance of large cushions and woollen throws. Wooden floor boards and white-washed walls are softened by colourful rugs and a stylish porthole style gas fire which keeps the house snug on evenings, should the sea air grow chilly. The downstairs, open plan set-up has a well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar in the dining end of the space. There is also a dining table to enjoy family dinners following evening strolls along the sandy shoreline.

At bedtime, the lovely master bedroom boasts sea views from the balcony. Guests can spend leisurely mornings laying in bed while still enjoying the sound of the seagulls and fishermen as they go about their day. Light, bright and airy, the room has American style shutters and curtains, plus a wall-mounted heater, to keep it warm, dark and cosy at night. Additionally, there is a twin bedroom which is ideal for children sharing. White shelves are covered in seaside-themed pictures and books, while a huge vintage map hanging on the wall is sure to inspire wanderlust. A modern family bathroom is white and bright with a large walk-in shower which has a rainfall shower-head.

Beyond the cottage there is plenty to see and do. Aldeburgh has fantastic fresh fish stalls directly opposite on the beach where cooks may find inspiration for the evening meal. For great food try The Lighthouse and for an evening out the town has an independent cinema. There are various festivals held in the town through the year, including a documentary film festival. The 16th Century Moot Hall is a short walk from the cottage and houses a terrific museum.
