Aldeburgh – a seaside town that embodies the quintessential English coastal holiday. With fish and chips so good they’re endorsed by Ed Sheeran!

As part of our series of blogs about some of the wonderful Suffolk villages and towns near us, we’ll be taking a closer look at Aldeburgh.

People come to Suffolk for a reason. It’s full of fantastic towns and villages with a unique Suffolk spin on English rural life.

This is one of the reasons why we’re fortunate enough to get so many return visitors here at Woodfarm Barns. There’s just so many places to explore near by!

One of the most popular destinations for our guests is the stunning Suffolk seaside town of Aldeburgh.

If you’re looking for a quintessential English seaside experience but without the amusement arcades etc. then Aldeburgh is the place for you.

Although the town does get very busy during the peak season, it is still a haven of a slower pace of seaside life.

Even one of Suffolk’s most famous global exports, Ed Sheeran, endorsed the town when he declared on Twitter that he missed the wonderful fish and chips produced in Aldeburgh.

Aldeburgh has it all: beautiful beaches, locally owned and managed shops, all topped off by a stunning array of culture:

– There’s a fantastic museum showcasing more than 200 years of fascinating local history;

The Red House where the iconic Suffolk composer Benjamin Britten and his partner, singer Peter Pears, once lived and worked;

– And my personal favourite, The Snape Maltings, where we have enjoyed much delicious food and fabulous music over the years. Very highly recommended.
