For Benjamin Britten, a quiet place to compose was absolutely essential. He was fortunate enough to achieve this for most of his life, spending his last two decades at The Red House, down a quiet lane on the outskirts of Aldeburgh. Today, at the Britten-Pears Foundation, we are entrusted with a number of properties – two on The Red House site, and one nearer the town centre – that we are happy to offer to composers and other artists for the purposes of a peaceful, creative retreat. The properties are suitable for individuals, or for 2 (or more) people. To find out more, please see Useful Information first of all, then click on links to the individual properties.

Due to recent high demand for Creative Retreats there is limited availability until September 2020.
