In a peacefully quiet location down a single track country lane, 2 Wadd Cottages is a recently renovated, single floor holiday cottage furnished and fitted to the very highest standard. With a white washed interior, hand-selected pieces add pops of colour to make this a unique yet welcoming property for up to 6. The grand open plan living area is the hub of the home and has all that you could need for a restful self-catering holiday. Whether you're looking for an escape with friends, or a place to celebrate a significant birthday, 2 Wadd Cottages offers all the ingredients for a truly wonderful stay, whatever the weather. The well equipped kitchen is an amateur chef's dream; plenty of cupboard space awaits to stock your locally sourced goodies whilst there is all the equipment you could dream of from a steamer to a pizza stone! So ingeniously designed, the central island has a convenient breakfast bar, yet the comfortable window seat makes a perfect 'perch' for all ages wanting to watch the cooking action.

The sitting area has utterly comfortable furniture looking out through the french doors to the rolling fields beyond. Dream of evenings spent here snuggled up with a book, playing a board game or watching one of the DVD's provided by the owner - the possibilities are limitless. Flooded with light and with high, vaulted ceilings, this open plan space is utterly spacious and you really won't feel crowded. 

A hallway connects the living area to the 3 beautifully finished bedrooms, all with french doors leading out to the garden and decking. The master bedroom with Superking bed enjoys similar views to that from the sitting area - so you can fulfill your dream of waking up to breathtaking countryside views. A convenient en-suite shower room means you really can look forward to a touch of luxury during your stay. The two further bedrooms each have zip and link beds, making 2 Wadd Cottages a truly flexible bolt-hole for families, friends or couples.

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, plus castles and much more to explore at Framlingham and Orford. The burial treasures at Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, should not be missed either.

Lovely rural, quiet, smart and comfortable cottage in a very convenient accessible area. Easy to get to both sea, river, heath and ancient woodland for beautiful walks. We would definitely recommend.

Mrs M,

Beautiful cottage, very well equipped. Beautifully decorated and furnished and very comfortable. Fantastic location to reach surrounding areas and lovely walks directly from the cottage. We loved it and will definitely be back again. Would highly recommend.

Mrs M,

A superb cottage on a quiet country lane, nicely located close to all our much loved places. The main living / dining area is very spacious with comfy seating including a window seat at the kitchen end. We found everything we needed to cook with, plenty nice crockery and cutlery, a nice cold fridge, and a lovely walk-in shower. Also chose this cottage as it has a ‘smart TV’ for choice of viewing of an evening. A footpath right outside the cottage was handy for the morning dog walk, and the dog towels and poo bags was a nice touch.

Ms O,

A very comfortable and well equipped property, in an ideal location for exploring Suffolk.

Mrs K,

A well appointed property in a quiet location with uninterrupted views over farmland. Well worth a visit, especially when the sun shines!
