Lovely comfortable stay at the boat house,wonderfully clean and warm with a lovely view from the balcony in peaceful and pretty Thorpeness.
This is the second time we have stayed at Boat Lake, and it will probably not be the last. The flat is a great space to chill out and relax with a superb view over the Boat Lake. It has all the amenities you would need for a very comfortable stay. The walk into Aldeburgh (recommended) is a great thing to do and saves messing around with cars etc.
We cannot recommend Boat Lake highly enough.
I booked 1Boat Lake as a surprise for my husband's birthday and we were not disappointed with the quality of the property. I booked through Aldeburgh Coastal Cottages which was trouble free and kept well informed. On the day of arrival we received a phone call giving the combination to obtain keys to property and parking instructions. The property was clean, tidy and well equipped. Small kitchen area which we used daily to cook breakfast. We are out at the dolphin one night which was fabulous as always. There was a selection of dvd's but must admit we didn't find them till the last evening. The furniture is comfortable as is the bed and lots of storage for clothes. There was also travel cot and high chair for anyone travelling with a little one. We made the most of the peaceful property and local area as we just wanted a quiet weekend together. It's a nice balcony with a lovely view of the boating lake but unfortunately we didn't spend long sitting outside as the weather was not great. However because there is a selection of cushions and blankets we did sit out for a while. We visit Thorpeness and Aldeburgh regularly but usually stay in a pub or hotel which we love. However having stayed at the boat lake we would certainly book again. I would suggest you book early as all property's in the area get booked well in advance. Perfect short break for couples and families.
