The village of Thorpeness, which is set around a boating lake known as The Meare, has developed from its Edwardian inception as a fairytale holiday village. Set on the Suffolk Heritage Coast with a shingle beach, the village lies to the north of the well served seaside town of Aldeburgh, and is just a few miles from Leiston where there is an excellent sports centre with a swimming pool. Thorpeness however also boasts its own Country Club, tennis courts, Golf Club, cafes and pub/restaurant. There is a village shop and many more amenities including galleries, a cinema, library and restaurants at nearby Aldeburgh. Saxmundham, approximately eight miles away, has a Wednesday Market, and railway station with direct access to London via Ipswich and Liverpool Street.

Attractions in the area include sailing at Aldeburgh (just 2 miles away up the coast road) and Woodbridge and of course music at Snape-home to the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival.

There are renowned nature reserves at Minsmere and Havergate Island. There are ancient castles at Orford and Framlingham.


The Red House is a substantial detached house, situated on one of the most prestigious roads in Thorpeness with stunning panoramic views over the sea. The house which constructed from red brick under pitched tiled roofs has numerous internal features including well proportioned rooms many of which have large windows or French doors overlooking the gardens and the sea. The house totals just under 4000 sq ft of accommodation but is flexibly laid out with the ability to open the reception rooms into one another or close them off if required. The views from the house are a particular feature and most rooms benefit from superb far reaching elevated views over the sea. The garden lies directly overlooking the sea with a summer house and Jacuzzi to one side and a central path leading through a private gate to the beach.
