A lovely family holiday home, a relaxing retreat close to the coast, with many walking and cycling trails on the doorstep.

This much loved holiday home is the perfect place to chill, offering comfortable family accommodation near Aldeburgh with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and fabulous kitchen with an arch to the dining room. The sitting room is delightful with a multifuel stove and French doors opening up onto the garden. The outside space is a real feature of this self catering holiday home, laid mainly to lawn, a great place for children and dogs to play. 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. You’ll be pleased to hear it’s a slightly shorter downhill walk to the local pub… just quarter of a mile away. However you spend your days -  8 Blyth Cottages is a good family holiday rental, with plenty of nearby activities for all the family and the dog to enjoy!

Pub 0.25 miles. Coast nearby

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 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 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.
