Snape is best known as the venue for the Aldeburgh Festival and for other events throughout the year held in the Maltings Concert Hall. However, the pretty village, at the head of the tidal estuary, is a popular holiday venue in its own right and central for exploring the unique area of the Suffolk Heritage Coast - the tidal estuary and network of footpaths are one of the most interesting areas of Suffolk for exploring on foot. There is easy access to the fascinating coastal town of Aldeburgh, you are just 30 minutes from Southwold plus castles and much more to explore at Framlingham and Orford. The burial treasures at Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, should not be missed either.

Are you looking for a larger property so that you can get together with friends and family? Or perhaps an adjoining property where yourself and other family members can enjoy a holiday together but with your own private space? Then 1 Wadd Cottages and neighbouring property 2 Wadd Cottages could be perfect for your stay! Booking these properties together would allow for a stay for up to 12 guests!

Great base for exploring the area. The property was extremely comfortable, clean and spacious. Loved the walks with the dog from right outside the front door!

Mrs H,

Great spacious property, all on one level so good for access, plenty of good dog walks directly from property. Well positioned for visit to Suffolk attractions, Southwold, Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings, Sutton Hoo, etc

Mr A,

Lovely week away in a light, airy, comfortable property. Lovely quiet lane with good proximity to all the places we wished to visit. Dog and teenagers were happy too.

Mrs W,

A well equipped modern comfortable cottage cottage in a delightful rural setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here.

Mrs B,

It was a beautiful cottage in a great location. Really delightful. The property is described as accessible, however there were some issues with external to internal thresholds and placing of furniture/sockets which weren't ideal. It would be worth checking if you have a wheelchair user in your party. But it is a lovely holiday home!

Ms S,
