Martello Tower

The Aldeburgh Martello Tower, owned and run by the Landmark Trust, is the largest and most northerly of the chain of towers built to keep out Napoleon. Constructed in the shape of a quatrefoil for four heavy guns, nearly a million bricks were used in its construction. This tower, between the River Alde and the sea, is just a few hundred yards from Aldeburgh.

The bedrooms are screened from the central living area but not fully divided, so that, lying in bed, you can still have a sense of being in a larger loftier space – and you can enjoy some conversation with your fellow guests.

Martello Towers were built to deter the French, not the elements, and inevitably, in this exposed position, some of the water finds its way inside. Purpose-made canopies over the main living space now provide significant protection, giving an agreeable nautical resonance of sails and campaign tents. Here you may live with the sea, the wind and rain sometimes, the light at Orford Ness flashing at night, and Aldeburgh at just the right distance.
