The Chauffeur’s Flat is a one bedroom holiday apartment located in the lovely village of Snape in rural Suffolk, near to Aldeburgh. Close to the heritage coastline, the self-catering apartment provides an ideal base from which to explore the local beaches, castles, towns and countryside. The Chauffeur’s Flat is modern and self-contained within the grounds of the owner’s house and is comfortable, private and fully equipped.
Walk or cycle from the door along footpaths or country roads to explore the local area. Visit the forests at Tunstall and Rendlesham and walk the Sailors Path to Aldeburgh. Explore the nearby villages with their historic churches, farm shops and pubs serving excellent, locally sourced food and ales.
Snape Maltings with its world-renowned concert hall is only a mile away. Also home to a range of shops, exhibitions and restaurants, Snape Maltings hosts a year-round series of musical, art and theatrical events. There are three excellent pubs within a mile of The Chauffeur’s Flat. For food shopping you can find excellent local produce at the Food Hall and Fresh Food Pantry at Snape Maltings and Friday Street Farm shop (both one mile away). Three are two supermarkets in the local town of Saxmundham (both will deliver) and the local garage at the end of the road sells the basics.
Aldeburgh and Southwold are only a short drive away with their fabulous beaches, fishing boats and wide range of local shops and restaurants. At nearby Framlingham you will find a historic castle, as you will at Orford which also has a great place to sample local seafood. There is an Anglo Saxon burial site close by at Sutton Hoo and Jimmy’s farm, made famous by the television programme, is a forty five minute drive away. For those who wish to venture further afield, the cathedral towns of Bury St Edmunds and Norwich are only an hour’s drive from The Chauffeurs Flat.
