Jingling on Shingle Street
A girls weekend away is an important landmark on ones social calendar. It marks a weekend where a group of close (and sometimes new) friends band together and exit their lives for a slice of freedom, enjoyment and usually a few bottles of booze.

I recently partook in this ritual and headed to the stunning Suffolk Coast to a humble little street called Shingle Street. Here resides 26 houses along the Hollesley Bay Beach, with one such one being that of a certain film producer.

A bunch of us girls were lucky enough to stay in the cute beachside house called Rinita - a post-war home that had been renovated as a wonderful city escape, with interiors such as white floorboards, shells and a mixture of white and blue upholstery, in keeping with the beach theme.

Without a whole lot to do but purely relax and de-stress, Shingle Street does provide some stunning scenery and much history.

Our two bedroom cottage was a haven that allowed us to feel secure yet also brave to explore the palatial beach at crazy hours of the night.

The location also provides a fantastic walking ground for parents and children alike, along the seashore. There are over a million stones, rocks and shells on the beach creating a maze along the pebble beach.

If you are interested in booking a venue on Shingle Street, you will not be disappointed. A beachfront home/cottage with so much history and not to mention the serene sound of the sea is just what the doctor prescribed.
