Just a mile north of Aldeburgh is this fascinating seaside village, built in the 1920s by Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie, an architect, barrister and playwright. The mock Tudor style of building is now the hallmark of Thorpeness, where the amenities include the Dolphin Inn, the Thorpeness Hotel with its 18-hole golf club, a country club with tennis courts and the Mere - a large shallow boating lake with tearooms nearby. The beaches are mainly sandy and behind the village is a myriad of footpaths over heath and common land.

One of the reasons we like to visit the area around Aldeburgh is that almost everywhere seems so dog friendly. Most of the pubs and cafes really welcomed our dog ( and fed him !)

Previous Customer,

The village was simply glorious. Good pub and cafe... so no need to cook. Beach on the doorstep and lovely walk into town. The Lamp House was really nice. It had everything we needed plus a nice glass of fizz in the fridge! It was perfect for three... if you like a long hot shower it is not for you.....

Past Customer,

it was a lovely, well-furnished cottage with lots of natural light and you could hear the sea at night from the bedrooms and garden.
