Snape Maltings is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is surrounded by one of Britain’s most spectacular expanses of reeds, water and vast skies.

Hugely popular with walkers, birdwatchers and nature lovers, the tidal River Alde and surrounding marshes are a haven for hundreds of species of flora and fauna. Resident birds seen at different times of the year include curlews, egrets, avocets, bitterns and marsh harriers, while mammals include otters, water voles and even the occasional seal. Low tide is a time of particular activity, with glistening mudflats and shallow water attracting many species of waders.

Wildlife

The River Alde at the Maltings is a haven for birdlife with its expansive estuary. Being tidal it’s a place of glistening mud and shallow open water, filled twice a day by the incoming tide and rich in wildlife during migrating months.
