Queenies is a delightful luxury holiday cottage that sleeps two guests. It is ideal for couples wanting a romantic break and also accommodates well behaved pets, allowing pet owners to enjoy a luxurious cottage with lots of character, antique furnishings and a high level of comfort and style.
The cottage offers some very good walks from the front door and backs onto a lovely Nature Reserve which leads to Snape with its Arts and Music Centre, and beyond to the popular seaside town of Aldeburgh.
With a cosy log burning stove, Queenies is a perfect retreat at any time of the year. Situated on the main road between the A12 and the pretty coastal town of Aldeburgh, it is close to Snape and The Snape Maltings where the Benjamin Britten Music and Arts Centre is based. There are great walks all around the area and a wide selection of excellent award winning restaurants and pubs.
Queenies is part of a small rambling 17th Century Regency Row, situated on its own with a forest nature reserve behind and Farmland in front. The cluster of buildings were originally built for milling and later further grander buildings were added. Formerly used to store grain and for stabling, this attractive red brick and tiled building is positioned back from the road and has off-road parking. Guests can enjoy direct access into the Nature Reserve, and from there to forests, lakes and beaches.
This is a wonderful location for cycling and walking and has plenty to offer those seeking the cry of the gull. The popular seaside town of Aldeburgh is under ten minutes away by car with an excellent choice of shops, pubs, restaurants, arts centre and harbour. Enjoy fish and chips on the beach then take one of the lovely walks in the area such as Orford Ness Nature Reserve.
