The property has distinctive and unusual stone steps leading to a high level front door – the possible entrance for the Custom office – with storage below, perhaps for contraband.

The cottage was equipped with everything we could possibly need for a week’s stay in Aldeburgh and is in a great location, just steps from the beach and high street with its interesting shops and fantastic restaurants. We ate excellent seafood at The Lighthouse and The Regatta and enjoyed fresh fried fish and chips from across the road, but a highlight was the wonderful smoked fish from Ashes smokery on the beach. There are wonderful varied walks directly from the cottage without the need for a car, but it is also easy to reach many of Suffolk’s other charming destinations along the coast and inland. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and would love to return to the Old Custom House.

This venue is a gem – everything spot on – fantastic! From beginning to end the visit was excellent – we even had great weather everyday – the house was great, so was its location, the sea was within 59 metres, and the local restaurants and fish retailers were great! We have absolutely no complaints – for any new visitor they should be warned that parking is an issue – if when you arrive and find a space keep it – use the bus or walk as you may not find any space when you return. Great visit – well done to you all – and many thanks!

‘Quirky house with a great history’ The accommodation is excellent, very cosy and had everything we needed. Ideally situated for the beach and town centre with great walks.

Julian Mead – August 2020
Just back from a 3 night break in the Old Custom House in Aldeburgh. This lovely little property is perfectly situated for exploring Aldeburgh and its surroundings as well as being very close to the sea. We had brilliant time. Thank you.
Robert Turnbull – August 2020
This was our 1st Airbnb & our first trip to Aldeburgh, and I can honestly say we were thoroughly delighted with our choice. It was immaculate, had everything you needed for a short break & felt very homely. The touch of leaving wine & nibbles, was a wonderful thoughtful treat. We didn’t want to leave & we will be back!

The Old Customs House is a wonderful place to stay in Aldeburgh. Fantastic location, just 35 steps from one of the best fish and chip shops in the town! The house was immaculate and cosy for a winter break. Highly recommend. Just be prepared for a fair few people walking past to stop and look at the building, as it’s one with such history.
