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.

Charming and quirky! It is a lovely cottage, cosy and snug. It feels homely and is well equipped. The location is what makes this cottage stands out: there are walking trails straight from the doorstep to the marshes and through an AONB area. We loved the walks with the dog every mornings and evenings as well as spotting a few birds! It is also well placed for investigating Suffolk in a larger sense if you wished to do so.

Mr Bertrand-Shelton ,

We had a lovely time staying in the cottage. We found it clean, warm and cosy and we loved all its quirkiness. The location is prefect with so many superb walks straight from the front door.

We were all delighted with our stay in such a pretty quaint cottage and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful garden. The cottage was amazingly well stocked with china and kitchen equipment. The stairs were a bit of a novelty but we got used to them! Many thanks for a lovely stay in beautiful Suffolk.
