About Squirrel Cottage

Squirrel Cottage sleeps four guests in two bedrooms and is ideally positioned in a peaceful country lane in the picturesque village of Snape on the Suffolk coastline. Pretty throughout, from its pink walls that greet you as you arrive, to the country furnishings within, this cosy retreat provides a warm welcome with a log fire for winter breaks and terrace for enjoying the summer sun.

Sitting on a private driveway in a row of three terrace cottages, Squirrel Cottage affords private parking which is a rarity in Snape. It also benefits from being within walking distance of the village amenities, including a shop and also Snape Maltings with its famous Concert Hall, shops, cafe, tea shop and food hall - a must for stocking up on holiday gifts and goodies to cook back at the cottage. With an extensive programme of events taking place throughout the year, the concert hall is a popular venue with something for all tastes from opera to jazz.

For those who enjoy cycling and walking, the cottage is a good choice. Lace up your walking boots and explore the many footpaths that are accessible from the cottage (local maps provided). Two bikes are also available for guests to loan, allowing you to cycle the leafy country lanes and discover the many pretty villages and coastline without the use of the car.

Nestling within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding countryside is an oasis for bird and wildlife. Visit RSPB Minsmere (featured on Spring Watch), Orford Creek or Iken marshes. The forests at Rendlesham and Tunstall are also popular with wildlife enthusiasts providing the opportunity of catching a glimpse of deer as well as plenty of birds.

Sitting so close to Suffolk's beautiful Heritage Coastline, the popular seaside resorts of Aldeburgh, Southwold, Dunwich and Thorpeness are all within a short drive away, providing plenty of opportunities for a day on the beach. The pretty small towns of Framlingham and Orford are also a must to visit with their magnificent castles.

Offering the perfect blend of coastal charm and country living, Snape is a superb base for exploring Suffolk's many treasures.
