2 The Dunes

Pleasant property ideal for family holidays close to the beach.

Opening Season

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.

The Dunes occupies a sunny corner site with direct access to the beach as well as having all other local amenities within an easy walk. There is a wider selection of shops, pubs and restaurants in neighbouring Aldeburgh with walks abound on the surrounding coastal heaths. The interior has been refurbished by the owners who have retained or incorporated features to match the Edwardian style of the property. Shop: 100 yds Pub: 100 yds.
