Beech House is 10 minutes walk from Aldeburgh Beach and The Shell sculpted by Maggi Hambling in memory of famous composer Benjamin Britten. we are also only a short distance from The Red House where he lived and worked and his archive remains.
The beaches of this part of the Suffolk Coast are renowned for bird life and wild flowers and plants.
Beech House is on the edge of beautiful countryside, full of birds, butterflies, wild flowers, and lots of other wildlife, some of which visit our garden. We are 5 minutes walk from RSPB North Warren, and close to walks across the Aldeburgh Marshes and along the banks of the Alde River.
ALDEBURGH IN WINTER
Beech House is close to walks across the Aldeburgh Marshes and along the banks of the Alde River as well as being adjacent to The Sandlings Walk and The Suffolk Coastal Path. There are also beautiful paths through RSPB North Warren bird reserve to nearby Thorpeness with maybe a boat ride on Thorpeness Mere.
For those wishing to spend time in Aldeburgh there is Aldeburgh Cinema showing a nightly up to date programme as well as hosting the Aldeburgh Documentary Festival every November. Events regularly take place at The Jubilee Hall, including The Summer Theatre Festival and Winter Concert Programme run by Aldeburgh Music and sponsored by The Wentworth Hotel. Aldeburgh High Street is full of tempting independant shops and closes for a day in August to host Aldeburgh Carnival. One of The Carnival highlights is the fantastic display of fireworks on the beach after a day of celebrations.
There are so many independently run places to eat and drink, Munchies, Choppings Hill, or Crag Sisters Tea Room for teas, coffee and lighter snacks, or hotels such as The Brudenell, White Lion and Wentworth for something more substantial. If you fancy a pint of Adnams there is always The Mill, mentioned in Britten’s opera Peter Grimes, or The White Hart. And you could always have fish and chips on the beach.
