Malt Cottage

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.
