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.
