Squirrel Cottage is a charming cottage in the centre of a small terrace of three, situated on a private driveway, tucked away near the end of a quiet country lane, with off road parking and easy walking distance from the famous Snape Maltings.

The cottage is perfectly situated for exploring the Suffolk heritage coast on foot, cycle or by car with the beautiful seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold only a short distance away. Snape is an area of outstanding natural beauty famous for its forest walks, salt marshes and wide estuaries. A 2 minute walk away from the cottage is several hectares of land which the RSPB purchased in 2008. They are currently in the process of returning the land to its natural state of marsh/wetland. Since this time there has been an increase in Marsh harriers, Bitterns and Barn Owls in the area.

The sitting/dining room is a cosy, comfortably furnished room with a wood-burning stove, Colour TV with Freeview, DVD, CD/cassette radio and dining table. There is also a small reading room downstairs with a single futon which doubles as a third bedroom. The newly-fitted kitchen is well equipped with electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine, and looks out on to a beautifully paved terraced garden. Upstairs is the bathroom together with two tastefully furnished bedrooms - one with a 4’6 bed, the other with a 4’ bed. Bed linen and towels are provided.

The cottage is south facing and therefore captures the sun rising in the east just in time for breakfast in the terraced back garden and similarly sets in the west in time for supper! Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, Goldfinches, Blue, Great and Long Tailed tits regularly feed from the two bird tables in the garden along with a wide variety of other birds.

Two cycles and a barbeque can be made available if required. A welcome basket is provided on arrival.

"We have had a lovely relaxing week here and have very much enjoyed staying in the cottage. Thank you for the warm welcome – especially the ‘welcome basket’! It has been a lovely homely place to stay with plenty of things to keep us entertained in the evenings. We have enjoyed our first visit to Suffolk including Kayaking on the Mere in Thorpeness in beautiful weather, spotting Red deer at Minsmere and exploring the Pier at Southwold (the sweet shop in Southwold is also a must). Thank you for a lovely week. "

"Thank you Caroline and Tim for your welcome and the ‘loan’ of your lovely and incredibly comfortable cottage. We have been blessed with the most incredible weather and go back tanned and refreshed. The stay has confirmed, if it were needed, that this part of Suffolk is very special indeed. Even a Sandhill Crane all the way (off course) from Northern Canada (yes I did see it!) thought so!"
