Since 1920, it has been run by the Pritt family and Michael Pritt, third generation and present owner, has succeeded in modernising without spoiling the special country house atmosphere. Log fires, antique furniture and signed Russell Flint prints all contribute to the Wentworth's unique character.
Situated on Suffolk's unspoilt coastline, Aldeburgh boasts maritime traditions dating back to the 13th century, which are still maintained today by the longshore fishermen who launch their boats from the beach. Aldeburgh has become a centre for music lovers worldwide; Snape Maltings attracts many visitors to the late Benjamin Britten's Aldeburgh International Festival of Music each June.
Golfers will find that Aldeburgh is an ideal base. The Aldeburgh course is a highly rated championship course, and Thorpeness and Woodbridge are both equally challenging. For birdwatchers there are reserves to visit including the internationally acclaimed Minsmere (RSPB) and Havergate Island.
