Tony met us on arrival and showed us around the cottage and advised about heating etc. The cottage is as advertised - beautifully clean with lovely kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and lounge which overlooked the amazing gardens. We absolutely loved it and will return next year. Tony told us about walks in the area and walked us down to the beach on the river with his beautiful dog Jessie. We loved the garden sun house which was decked out with little ones in mind and with the gypsy caravan was an amazing area for children and adults to play and relax. Our grandchildren came down to Aldeburgh for one day and absolutely fell in love with the whole package and sobbed when they had to leave.
I would recommend the cottage to anyone who enjoys wonderful gardens full of bird song and wildlife and an exceptional cottage.


Couple from Aylesbury, United Kingdom Apr 2019

We had a great stay at Beaver Cottage, super cottage with outstanding views, we had 2 dogs with us and the walks in the private grounds were amazing. We would recommend Beaver Cottage to anyone that wants a peaceful space with easy access to all of Suffolk's delights. We will be returning next year.

Absolutely delightful property, lovely owners and the best possible weekend retreat. We will definitely return and stay for a week or not.....there was nothing not to like and the owners are genuinely really good people.

Thank you John. We look forward to your next visit.


Family from London, United Kingdom Sep 2018

We had an amazing time at this amazing property, the owners, were so welcoming, attentive but not intrusive.The accommodation is lovely in a delightful setting. the facilities were fully exploited by my two grandchildren aged 11 and 12, real opportunities to explore with and without adult company. sleep over in a mini caravan yes please,, kayaking on The Alde, open water swimming it is all at Beaver Cottage and much much more. I could easily go on my own for the peace and quiet this venue affords, but the children would be devastated. The bonus of having the companionship of Jess, the owner's dog, for walks down to the river was the icing on the top of this wonderful cake.Many many thanks we will be back

Beaver Cottage is in a superb peaceful location with extensive grounds that you are free to roam at your leisure. A short walk through the grounds takes you down to the river from where you can walk into Aldeburgh (about 50 mins). A walk down the main road takes about 30 mins to the beach. The owners live in the house attached to the cottage but are by no means intrusive. Recommendations on places to eat were useful...The fish and chips are a must but be prepared to queue. Munchies do a superb breakfast which will set you up for the day. There is a small private garden (with gate) which is ideal for families with small children. When wandering the grounds many different birds can be seen and it was common to see rabbits outside the cottage in a morning breakfasting on the grass.

Overall Beaver Cottage provided excellent accommodation and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

On arrival we were made to feel most welcome, the cottage was cosy and the gardens beautiful. The children were asked if they would like to feed the chickens in the morning an experience they had never had before. We have already recommended this experience to friends and will definatly be back. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind this is definatly the place for you.

Can we book again for next year please? This is our 4th visit and again we had a wonderful time. Thank you for letting us borrow your kayak. Mr and Mrs C. CambridgeWe first came to Beaver Cottage in 2005 and this is our third visit. We love it here and hope to be back in 2008. Mr and Mrs S Biggleswade.
