Snape, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
Waterfields Cottage is a Grade II listed building with its origins going back to the 1600's.

We are located just outside Snape, famed for the Maltings and once the home of composer Benjamin Britten. Our family home is situated at the end of a green lane and bordered by the river Fromus. We are 3 miles from Saxmundham with train links to London and 5 miles from the coast at Aldeburgh.<BR><BR>The holiday let is a 1970's addition to the main house with its own entrance.

We spent 3 nights in Waterfields Cottage during one of the hottest weeks of the year! The cottage was airy and welcoming with everything we needed. Lovely to come back to the peace and quiet of this lovely spot after a busy day sightseeing.

A truly beautiful place, we had a great weekend here. It was very comfortable and just what we were after. It is very close to Aldburgh, the coast and Snape. Hidden away down a secluded lane, it is very quiet and peaceful, and the garden is gorgeous. We were very well looked after and didn't want to leave at the...
