Kakapo Lodge, named after a New Zealand flightless parrot, is a beautifully transformed outbuilding nestled in the quiet Suffolk village of Snape; close by to the Suffolk coastline. Perfect for two, Kakapo Lodge is positioned within the owners grounds and provides guests with a truly relaxing holiday experience in a location where glorious field views are what you wake up to each day.
Inside this single storey holiday home there’s emphasis on space and light throughout with large French sliding doors and plenty of skylight windows. Ease is of the essence here with a generous open plan area which has a sitting area for relaxing in front of the woodburner, dining area plus modern kitchen for enjoying self-catering. A sumptuous bedroom is easily adaptable – there’s an option of twin single beds which can be made into a king size bed – simply choose to suit your sleeping requirements. Decorated in calming neutral colours and beautifully furnished, guests are sure to get a good night’s rest. The bedroom also comes with a handy En-Suite shower room with large shower cubicle.
Kakapo Lodge has its own private garden with delightful veranda, small lawn and garden furniture supplied to make the most of blissful mornings or lazy afternoons enjoying the Suffolk sunshine. This area is a great spot for dogs to roam freely with the garden being fully-fenced.
The village of Snape is a popular destination for all – there are plenty of footpaths and cycle routes to explore. Kakapo Lodge is just two minutes’ drive away from Snape Maltings known for its concert hall, shops, cafes and restaurant. What’s more, there’s a footpath from the property which leads directly to the hub of the village if you prefer to leave the car behind.

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 also.

A beautiful property, the owner Jess is approachable and friendly but was also very respectful of my privacy. It was obvious from the second I walked into the garden and towards the lodge that guests comfort was paramount. I can’t find fault with anything, the main thing I loved was the covered veranda it caught the afternoon sun and was a great place to read and relax.Mrs Claire Satchwell - 18th October 2018
