About the neighbourhood
Thorpeness is a village located just one mile north of Aldeburgh on the stunning Suffolk Heritage Coast. Developed as a private fantasy holiday village, Glen Ogilvie built the Country Club, golf course, tennis courts and an artificial lake called the ‘Meare’. The Meare has inspirations from J. M. Barrie’s work of Peter Pan and holds the annual Thorpeness Regatta where boat races are held during the day and a fantastic fireworks display can be seen at night.

Thorpeness is also home to the House in the Clouds. An old water tower that was considered an eye-sore has been developed into a fantastic 5-storey holiday home. You won’t miss it whilst you are visiting the village!
