This property looks out over an RSPB nature reserve. Numerous walks start from just outside the front door, whether round the nature reserve, by the edge of the golf course to Thorpeness and the beach or along the old railway line to Aldeburgh. We watched Marsh Harriers and Merlins (I think) over the mere. I even saw a couple of deer. The upstairs balcony has an even better view than the hides around the reserve. We had couple of dogs with us and it was perfect for them with lots of outdoor space. Ideal for an extended family get together. The kitchen and lounge areas are huge with the large windows overlooking the mere. Thorpeness is an interesting and quirky place. It was great walking among the unusual buildings. We only did half the activities we could have done in the nearby area.

Fabulous cottage for birdwatchers which looks over an area of fenland – we saw marsh harriers every day of our three-night stay, plus a bittern, egret, kestrels and peregrine falcons. The owner has provided several sets of binoculars (one set broken but one excellent set) Great walks from the door. The property is very well equipped, furnished and spacious. The kitchen is vast and well laid out with wonderful views, shared by the equally vast vaulted living room. Best meal was dinner at the Parrot and and Punchbowl (which is walkable but beware it’s very easy to get lost). Also ate in Thorpeness opp the duck pond (thumbs up for the open Coronation chicken sandwich) and in Aldeburgh. Feel we have exhausted Thorpeness, which is a quaint novelty – a curious mix of Legoland, The Stepford Wives, The Prisoner and The Truman Show.

Magical place for all ages. This is our 4th visit to Crossing Cottage which, surely, is praise indeed. We all love it from a 4 year old up to a 74 year old! The location is superb. Ideally situated for easy access to both Aldeburgh and Southwold and, not forgetting Thorpeness itself with its beautiful mere. Having a nature reserve at the bottom of the garden is an added bonus. We saw a bittern, marsh harriers, terns and even had a daily visit from a red deer. The children loved the garden with its slide and swings and space to play football etc. Can thoroughly recommend it!
Trusted customer from Needingworth – June 2021
A wonderful , light and spacious house. It has a well equipped kitchen and great communal space. We enjoyed the amazing views, and thanks to the binoculars provided, discovered the joy of bird watching. Scenic walks into Aldeburgh , and along the beach to Maggi Hambling’s The Scallop , boating at Thorpeness , and The Sailors path to Snape , are just a few activities that kept us busy and deserving of our fish and chips ! We would recommend Crossing Cottage.

Matthew – December 2020
Managed to stay here just before lockdown, this is a beautiful cottage and perfect for a family stay. We had lovely walks from the door and relaxed family meals around the huge kitchen table. A very positive memory from this awful year.

Trusted customer from Trip Advisor, Norwich – December 2020
Amazing house and very peaceful location. Lovely views over nature reserve from the huge kitchen and impressive living room. Beds were very comfortable and good showers. You can walk down the footpath opposite to the village/sea in 10-15mins and into Aldeburgh (another 20mins). Lovely walking. Had an amazing time!
Emma Gillard – October 2020
Excellent property . What a find. A wonderful holiday spent here with our family.
Jill Davy – July 2020
A beautiful and clean house in a stunning and peaceful location.
Dominic Elliott – July 2020
We had a family 50th party so the house catered for everyone from aged 8 to 50. Lots of space and everything has been thought of to make this a home from home. The table tennis table provided hours of entertainment and the fire is a lovely centrepiece to the house. The views are second to none and we felt relaxed in the first 5 minutes. Lovely walk to Thorpeness beach. Would highly recommend this wonderful house, thank you.
Clare Game – March 2020

Selma Seferovic – January 2020
We had a lovely family stay at Crossing Cottage. The cottage is well equipped and very spacious, perfect for a mixed group of adults and children. Perfectly located, with easy access to Aldeburgh and Thorpeness. The whole team were very helpful and always quick to respond to queries. Highly recommended.
Sarah Hunt – December 2019
Beautiful view over fenland with birds and wildlife coming and going. Lovely open plan house, spacious and still felt cosy around the wood burner in the evenings. Wonderfully equipped kitchen for family cooking. Enjoyed the table tennis table! And made full use of binoculars! Great walks into Aldeburgh.
We loved the space, especially being able to watch Marsh Harriers and deer in the mornings over breakfast. It was great being able to walk into Thorpeness and Aldeburgh and we loved the wood burner in the dark evenings. We would definitely visit again!! Fantastic kitchen and we enjoyed being able to cook with everything that we could have needed. Thank you.
Sandy – November 2019
Crossing Cottage is such a lovely space in a beautiful location – my whole family had a really lovely long weekend here. Spacious but cosy, gorgeous views, walking distance from Thorpeness and well equipped – the table tennis table was great fun! Would definitely recommend.
Rosie, via Airbnb – October 2019
Customer service was excellent – would not hesitate to book through them again.
Crossing Cottage was perfect for our girls weekend away. Beautiful views from the cottage, great location with short walk to Thorpeness and bit longer to Aldeburgh. Perfect place for a family or friends getaway, would recommend.

‘Fantastic Christmas and highly recommend Aldeburgh Coastal Cottages’
After spending two previous weekends at Crossing Cottage with girlfriends, we decided to book for our family Christmas this year. We all loved it and had a fantastic time with the intention of returning next Christmas.
All staff members are helpful and cottage is always in immaculate condition and very well equipped.
Lovely local walks, nice friendly local pubs and great fish n chips!!! We always spoil ourselves with the hire of a hot tub too!
Love the cottage, love the area!
Sam Harry, Hertfordshire – January 2019
Aldeburgh Coastal Cottages provided a helpful, friendly and efficient service. Angela and Kim were responsive to our individual needs and requirements and met them fully. Much appreciated. Crossing Cottage provided an excellent location for a large family celebration. The views were stunning of what one guest described as a “Spring Watch” scene….. Marsh Harriers in flight, Bitterns booming….
Many walks available from the cottage.
