Thorpeness was a favourite of JM Barrie, and the Meare is a re-creation of the Peter Pan story. It is in active use from Easter to October, when you can hire canoes, rowing, sail boats etc., and enjoy Thorpeness Regatta. Other amenities include the Dolphin Inn, the Thorpeness Hotel's famous 18-hole golf course, Thorpeness Country Club tennis courts, a village shop/deli and Meare tearooms. The beaches are beautiful (Aldeburgh is a 20 minute walk), and a myriad of footpaths over heath and common land lead from the door, e.g. to Dunwich and RSPB Minsmere.

Great property for families. Close to the beach, the boating lake and walks.Mrs Maureen Grundy - 3rd June 2018
An Ideal Holiday Stay for an Extended Family ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ An excellent property which was ideal for our party of 9 including a 1 year old and 4 year old. The large living area gave the children plenty of space to play. The dining area again was ideal to seat everyone comfortably around the table . The kitchen was well fitted out with everything that we needed. The bedrooms were spacious, bright and clean. The three showers / baths meant there was little queuing in the mornings. The secluded and well kept garden gave a safe and welcoming space to be outside. The house is ideally situated within easy reach of the sea, shop, pub and boating lake. - 20th April 2018
