It’s peaceful to sit in the lovely lawned garden surrounded by mature trees but you’re only a short walk into the centre of town. Visit the art galleries, play a round of golf, go and see Maggi Hambling’s huge steel sculpture on the beach – a monument to Benjamin Britten. The Red House – the home he lived in towards the end of his life – is now a museum.
Back at the house, open up the living room doors to the sundeck and relax with a G&T while the kids play pool in the games room in the garden. The studio’s walls are covered in Sadler’s paintings, photographs of him and his work, and even the CDs he listened to as he painted – you can now listen too.
In the kitchen find wine, milk, juice, local biscuits and everything you need for rustling up meals. Don’t leave without a trip to the award-winning Aldeburgh Fish & Chip shop – family run for over 50 years it’s open every day except Christmas Day.
