Shingle Street is an iconic and unique place on the Suffolk Coast. Located at the entrance to the Alde Estuary leading up to Orford and Aldeburgh, Shingle Street is an seaside hamlet situated on a shingle beach facing the North Sea. It comprises an eclectic mix of houses huddled along the beach beside one of the majestic Martello Towers which are dotted along the Suffolk coastline. The flat, panoramic landscapes of the sea and the beach to the front and the grassy marshlands to the rear provide vast expanses of sky and great views. This remote location is an ideal base for those wishing to get away from it all and to take in the abundance of fresh air but with the convenience of having the bustling market town of Woodbridge only 9 miles away.

The Lifeboat House is a spacious, quirky and well equipped house, with views from every room (even the bath has a low level window!). Facing directly onto the beach at Shingle Street and with an big enclosed garden it was ideal for our dog. At night the remote location really came into its own, with no light pollution we enjoyed fabulous night skies. The Shepherd and Dog in Hollesley is a very welcoming and dog friendly pub, the food is proper British pub grub, freshly cooked, great quality and massive portions.
