Renowned for its appearance on the BBC television series ‘Grandpa in my Pocket, Seahorse Cottage is one of the most recognisable ‘cottages’ in Aldeburgh. Its unique Scandinavian-inspired design is a haven of free-flowing light and airy open space, far away from any traditional holiday cottage. Outside of the property you can enjoy views – from both the balcony and terrace – of the Moot Green, 16th century Moot Hall, as well as the beach, sea and some spectacular sunrises.

Whilst its iconic namesake has echoed throughout generations, today Seahorse Cottage is far-removed from it’s dainty origins. Following an extensive remodelling in 2017, the interior now radiates light via it’s free-flowing, airy open spaces throughout. An old English cottage that emanates Scandaniavian design ideals arouses a particularly unique experience not often emulated anywhere across the British coastline.
Meticulously designed to prioritise potential drawings of light, the rays bounce off the white washed floors and rafters and trickle into every nook and cranny leaving no sign of darkness in this beacon of minimalist luxury. Decadent but unpretentious, the doors of Seahorse Cottage welcome all to bask in the uncompromising Eastern seascape on it’s balcony and terrace.
Find utility in the intelligently selected furnishings; the narrow bench placed inside the entrance hall, the trundle bed in the second bedroom offering multiple occupancy configurations. Just some examples of the clever use of space, maximising function but never compromising on the vision of the open escape. A bolthole for the endearing or a kindred nest at the seaside, Seahorse Cottage is truly a canvas for the ideal Suffolk Break.
Easy to park outside the property most of the time, in peak season you might have to use one of the nearby car parks .
