An outstanding and unique holiday cottage close to the River Alde with shop, pub and beach nearby… perfect for a relaxing family holiday.

This detached period holiday home is delightful, the property has been sympathetically restored retaining original features with beamed ceilings, an eclectic mix of furnishings and exposed brick inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove - perfect for the cooler evenings.

Sherfield Cottage is a stylish holiday home in the village of Snape close to Aldeburgh, a popular town on the Suffolk coast. Accommodation is over two floors, on the ground floor there’s a kitchen, dining room with woodburner and a cosy sitting room (another woodburner) with a velvet chesterfield style sofa and an excellent library for your holiday reading.

If you’re planning to pack your walking boots, be sure to walk the Sailor’s Path along the River Alde to the Suffolk coast at Aldeburgh. Follow in the footsteps of the fishermen, who, at low tide were forced to leave their boats on the mud flats and head home on foot.

Shop 350 yards. Pub 250 yards. Beach and coast nearby.

Why we love this property… this 17th Century holiday cottage is a relaxing retreat close to the coast, walking and cycling trails… so switch off your phone and simply relax!

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.
