About Flint Cottage

Flint Cottage is a very pretty single-storey period holiday cottage that is located in the quiet, friendly market town of Saxmundham, providing a perfect place for a relaxing break at any time of the year. It is ideally situated just four miles from Snape and eight miles from the popular coastal town of Aldeburgh - providing the ideal base to enjoy all that Suffolk and its beautiful coastline has to offer.

Saxmundham is a small market-town (market-day Wednesday) which is positioned on the River Fromus, a tributary of the River Alde. Here you feel like you are stepping back in time to a more relaxed pace of life.

Located just five hundred yards from the High Street, Flint Cottage is close to the good selection of interesting independent shops to browse. There is also a newsagents, stationers, bakers, chemist, hairdressers, pet shop plus two supermarkets - Waitrose and Tesco (both open seven days). This charming town even has its own Museum and two small art galleries, along with a wide variety of cafes, restaurants and take-away outlets catering for all tastes and budgets.

For a sumptuous meal, try The Bell - renowned for its excellent food which is reasonably priced!

For an evening stroll or Sunday walk, Carlton Country Park is just ten minutes walk away and you are able to take a short ride on a bus or taxi to nearby Leiston, Snape or Aldeburgh for an evening at the theatre, cinema, concert or a meal. Alternatively you may decide to stay more locally and try the “Poacher’s Pocket” - a traditional, quaint country pub serving home-cooked meals and real ales (just five minutes by car or a pleasant 30 minute walk through the Country Park).

Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday or want to visit the many places of interest and attractions of Suffolk, this is an ideal place to spend a holiday or short break.
