About Helen Rogerson
My husband and I live in Suffolk with our three children.
Helen Rogerson purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Helen Rogerson chose Aldeburgh
Aldeburgh has always been a home from home for me, as my parents owned a holiday cottage around the corner from Charlotte's Cottage as far back as the sixties, and all our summers were spent here.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is ideally located for the beach, high street, tennis courts and sailing club which are all within easy walking distance. It's a great place for children and cycling, and with so many good restaurants, pubs and shops in the town there really is no need to get in the car.

Perfect location and very homey
Loved it! Bring earplugs for the seagulls who start a racket at 3:30am but other then that and missing my Starbucks coffee.... it was perfect!
Simple cottage very well equipped and excellent location
This is a very old property and has been cleverly extended to include an upstairs toilet. This is a bonus as the stairs are quite steep, so not good to tackle in the middle of the night. It is located near the beach and also some essential shops (bakery, fish and chips and the pub). We found everything we required in the cottage, including some very useful information about the area. The owner was most helpful and communicative.
This is a very comfortable cottage, very well equipped and ideally located on a lane which leads to the sea at one end and the high street at the other. We would highly recommend it.
Lovely cottage, excellent location
This was a lovely cottage, clean and well provided with amenities including an excellent shower! Location at the end of the high street and seconds from the sea front is fantastic. Helen was very helpful and welcoming, she contacted us to ensure we knew how to turn on the heating when we had a significant drop in the outside temperature before we got round to asking which was thoughtful.
Aldeburgh itself is a lovely town with lots of wonderful independent shops. We made good use of the butcher particularly - excellent sausages!
A beautiful cottage in a great location!
This cottage is a gem. Really well-kitted out with all the things you need for a great seaside holiday. Bright and airy inside, deceptively proportioned and barely a stone's throw from the beach. Having the sunny front garden was really useful for drying wetsuits and swimming togs etc. We had a fantastic week staying in Charlotte's Cottage - this happy family of five will definitely be rebooking!
Perfect Aldeburgh beach cottage
The perfect cottage in Aldeburgh, very tastfully done. Just feet away from the beach on a classic quiet lane. The size is deceptively big for a historic property like this. Very well equipped, including good wifi. Everything you could need. And owners (Helen) so helpful and pleasant.
It all made for a fantastic week, just as we wanted.
Beach half a minute's walk away.
