A Lowestoft guesthouse has been honoured with a national accolade.
Britten House, which was the home of composer Benjamin Britten for 21 years, has been named an eviivo Hidden Gem - an initiative which celebrates the best, most unique and quirky properties that the UK's independent accommodation scene has to offer.
The Grade II listed Victorian townhouse overlooks Lowestoft's award winning Blue Flag beach, and has uninterrupted sea views from certain rooms.
The guesthouse has been selected by judges for the outstanding quality of accommodation and customer service,
Ann Ceresa, owner of Britten House, said: 'For us, the focus is constantly on the customer and making sure they have the best possible experience, but it's a great feeling to know that the hard work we put in has been recognised. The property has so much history and beauty so it's wonderful to see it showcased on a national level.'
