STOP PRESS: As featured in The Guardian's 5 Cool Cottages in Suffolk - 1st June 2013
Shingle Street is an iconic and unique place on the Suffolk Coast. Located at the entrance to the Alde Estuary leading up to Orford and Aldeburgh, Shingle Street is an isolated hamlet situated on a shingle beach facing the bracing North Sea. It comprises an eclectic mix of houses huddled along the beach beside one of the majestic Martello Towers which are dotted along the Suffolk coastline. The flat, panoramic landscapes of the sea and the beach to the front and the grassy marshlands to the rear provide vast expanses of sky and great views. This remote location is an ideal base for those wishing to get away from it all and to take in the abundance of fresh air.
Martello Tower is quite simply one of the most stunning places to stay in Britain. This outstanding and unique property dates back to Napoleonic Wars when a series of these towers were built along the British coast. The views from the top rooms and balcony are truly amazing taking in the sea to one side and the marshes and moorland behind. Coupled with the annexe in the grounds of the private garden, Martello Tower is surely one of the best settings you will find for an extended family or group stay for up to 12 people.
