Local information

  • Cotifo is set in a highly sought after position on North End Avenue which is a very short walk directly to the beach. 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, gym and the town has a good variety of shops and a supermarket. Thorpeness however also boasts its own Country Club, tennis courts, Golf Club, cafes and pub/restaurant. There are 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.
  • Attractions in this part of Suffolk include nature reserves at Minsmere and Havergate Island. There are ancient castles at Orford and Framlingham, sailing at Aldeburgh and Woodbridge and of course music at Snape—home to the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival.
