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.
