About Tim and Lucy
Suffolk Heritage Coast, United Kingdom Members since 2015 Hello, We are Tim and Lucy and we live on the stunning Suffolk Heritage Coast with our son Jack. We have been successfully letting our cottages: Stable cottage, Arwen cottage (just a stone's throw from the beach) in Aldeburgh and Thimble cottage in Southwold via our companies Aldeburgh Seaside Cottages and Southwold Seaside Cottages. All our properties are self-catering and advertise on the Owners Direct website. We are thrilled to have met such interesting people and received such lovely feedback for it. Tim was born and bred in beautiful Suffolk and I was born in Lima-Peru and brought up in Milan-Italy. I speak Spanish, Italian, French, German and English. As my husband’s family is from Suffolk we have strong ties with this beautiful part of the world. Having travelled extensively we have been inspired by the good things we have come across in properties we have stayed in. As you can tell, we are passionate about providing somewhere special that our guests will love, enjoy and return to. We feel incredibly lucky to be able to live in this part of the world and are loving sharing our cottages with some amazing people from the Owners Direct community. If we had a motto to live by it would have to be Maya Angelou's: “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style...”
Why Tim and Lucy chose Aldeburgh
A gorgeous haven for couples and families, it is a wonderful holiday base throughout the year, with coast, countryside, culture & food on the doorstep. Days at the beach, sailing, horseriding, fishing, birdwatching, relaxing galore! This lovely Victorian fisherman's cottage is in the heart of Aldeburgh on a quiet street, 25 yards from the beach and 25 yards from Aldeburgh high street. Arwen cottage is close to an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, characterful pubs, excellent art galleries, a cinema and a theatre. The cottage is also a few paces from the most famous fish and chip shops in the country. There are excellent restaurants just a couple of minutes walk away. As you step out of the cottage door the promenade and beach are a few paces in one direction, and the high street just yards away the other way. Despite the perfect location, the cottage is delightfully peaceful. There is also public parking just outside the cottage. The cottage has been re-furbished in a light but luxurious style and has been brought into the 21st century, with contemporary kitchen and bathroom and very comfy furnishings. On the ground floor it has a lovely cosy living room and dining space with a nice bathroom. There is a private sunny courtyard with outside furniture too. Arwen cottage is a lovely cosy cottage, full of character and exceptionally comfortable, clean and well-equipped, including Wi-Fi. A welcome pack (tea, coffee, fresh milk, cake/flapjack/similar) is included.
