One of several renovated coastguard cottages as the name would suggest, number 4 features both a double and a single bedroom to accommodate 3 guests making it ideal for small families. The row of idyllic cottages dotted on the Suffolk seafront surely must be the archetypal coastal holiday cottages Britain has to offer with panoramic views over the pebble beach, marshlands and the sea. Due to the remote location, the vistas are remarkably unspoilt and offer a sense of escapism.
Shingle Street is actually considered a small hamlet on the Suffolk coast with closest village Hollesley and the nearest major town being Woodbridge. The natural environment of the Alde Estuary is one of Suffolk’s main appeals as holiday destination and its relative proximity to London makes you realise how hassle-free and affordable a self catering holiday can be in Britain.
As for the accommodation itself, number 4 Coastguards Cottages features a kitchen, dining room and living area with sublime views over the North Sea. You’ll find a washing machine in the downstairs cloakroom which is ideal for fortnight or longer breaks and upstairs there are as mentioned two bedrooms as well as a shower room. Parking won’t be a problem at this coastal holiday cottage due to its remote location and you can enjoy the shared use of the courtyard area outside.
