Thorpeness is a mile and a half along the beach from Aldeburgh and is a charming holiday village largely designed by the Scottish playwright and barrister Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie a century ago. He decided to create an idyllic model seaside village, inspired by the writings of JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan.

The village has a Meare (local for lake) and its several miles of shallow water can be explored in the summer time by rowing boat, kayak and canoe. A short walk from the cottage is the Thorpeness Country Club and here the tennis courts and games rooms are often available during half term holidays as well as the summer months.

Also close by is the Thorpeness heathland golf course. The area is ideal for cycling and walking, both along the coast and inland countryside. It's a short walk to the famous 'House in the Clouds' and Thorpeness windmill, both close to the Meare. There are a number of shops and eateries including The Dolphin Inn, and a popular café next to the Meare (opening times vary according to the time of year).
