We were lucky enough to pick an amazing weekend weather-wise to go to Snape, we had planned to stay two nights and ended up staying three. Location is within walking distance to Snape maltings, lovely walks along the river, two great pubs. We stayed in the Garden Cottage which consists of one open plan room containing very comfortable double bed, side tables, good lighting, comfy sofa, table, chairs and small kitchen area with microwave, toaster, kettle. Tea, coffee, milk, butter, bread, variety of jams and cereals, yoghurts, orange juice, ham, cheese. Everything clean and immaculate. Ellen is wonderful host and I really appreciated her almost immediate reply whenever I emailed and it was lovely meeting her.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Old Mill, dating from 1797, overlooks the village of Snape and The Maltings Concert Hall (a short walk away) on the River Alde beyond. It was originally converted in 1937 by Benjamin Britten where he lived until 1947, and where he composed 'Peter Grimes.'The property still retains the character that Britten bought to it, but has been updated in recent years, and now offers very comfortable accommodation in either of two separate cottages within the grounds. Both have their own private entrance and their own garden in which you will find picnic tables, chairs and a barbecue. Each has a small kitchen with sink, a microwave oven/grill, a refrigerator, kettle, toaster, and the various other accouterments you would expect to make your stay comfortable and convenient. We will provide an extensive 'continental' breakfast in your cottage, to your requirements. ... more less
