The careful refurbishment of Malt Cottage and retention of many fine period features gives this cottage a lovely homely feel. The property is situated within the heart of the Historic Listed Frontage of Snape Maltings just 5 miles from the beaches at Aldeburgh and a short drive to Southwold’s sandy beaches further up the coast.
On the doorstep there is an array of shops, a Food Hall selling local produce, an antique centre together with a fine-dining Pub, the Granary Teashop, the award-winning Cafe 1885 and, of course, the world-renowned Snape Maltings Concert Hall. These are all within a short walking distance and provide all that is needed for a relaxing break near the Suffolk coastline.
The location is perfect, right beside the River Alde with walks to Iken and Aldeburgh. It is a birdwatchers and nature lovers paradise.
Guests should be aware that the retained original staircase angle is a little steeper than would be found in a modern home.
You enter Malt Cottage directly into the welcoming kitchen where there is a wealth of storage including a larder, a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer. The high ceilings and dual aspect give it a very airy feel. The oak worktops and flooring lend themselves to a contemporary look including a lovely feature table and four chairs – the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing breakfast, leisurely lunch or a stylish dinner.
Directly opposite the kitchen is the comfortable sitting room with Freeview TV, DVD player, Xbox 360 (with games) and super-fast fibre-optic broadband. The retro sofa along with a leather chair provide ample seating in a lovely setting with a unique full-height window which allows light to filter in during the afternoon and evening.
Upstairs there are two elegant bedrooms – one king-size double room and a single room with space for a cot. Both rooms have good storage with the Master bedroom having a vintage cast-iron hanging rail and chest of drawers. The good-sized bathroom offers a rain-shower over the full-size bath , washbasin and WC.
Visitors have access to a delightful private courtyard garden which is a very peaceful spot at the heart of the site. A reserved parking space is just at the rear of the property.
Staff are on-hand to meet and greet you and to ensure that your stay is enjoyable and comfortable. A memorable stay awaits…
