About Wendy Wheatley
The owners live in Cambridge with their four children. They bought the house in 2003 primarily as a place to enjoy sailing and to escape to in the summer holidays. However, they now spend time there throughout the year to enjoy all that Aldeburgh and the surrounding area has to offer.

Why Wendy Wheatley chose Aldeburgh
We bought in Aldeburgh primarily to enjoy sailing but now enjoy many of the other aspects the town has to offer including: golf, tennis, sea swimming(!), art galleries, the annual carnival, local pubs and restaurants and beautiful walks in the area and surrounding countryside.
What makes this House unique
The property is on a quiet, unmade road only a few minutes walk from the High Street with all its amenities, beach and river. The upstairs room provides a lovely light living space for relaxing with friends and family. The house also benefits from off-street parking for two cars and a sheltered garden with summer house.

Great house and location
This is our second time at the property. Lovely house in a great location. Everything you could ask for in a holiday property- even beach shoes! We hope to return again.
Great house to stay, good parking, nice quiet area. Three generations of us staying in the same property and not once did you feel on top of each other. Wendy the owner has thought of everything you may possibly need in the house to make your stay comfortable.

Home from Home!
Great property, in an excellent location a short walk from the High Street but very peaceful. It had everything we required and we felt instantly at home. The balcony was an excellent place for breakfast in the morning. Wendy was very good communicating with us throughout the process. We would love to return.
Great holiday in a lovely house
We were 3 generations staying for a long weekend and really enjoyed the house and the town. Very relaxed and welcoming house, which catered for all our needs - from 3 months to 63 years old. We particularly liked the open kitchen/living room space where we could all follow our own interests and be together at the same time. We completed one of the jigsaws and our 4 year old grand daughter played table tennis for the first time. Following her own rules . . . Thank you for a lovely holiday!
Lovely house, comfortable and clean.
We had a lovely Christmas break at Drake House .Very comfortable with everything you could need.
The double bed was very comfy but the singles not so good. Otherwise we would strongly recommend it and would thank Wendy and family for making it such a lovely visit.
