Ellen, the owner could not have been more welcoming and delightful. We booked to attend the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival so had a two night stay. The cottage was wonderfully clean, equipped and comfortable for our needs and perfectly situated for nearby Maltings and pubs. We recommend the Maltings restaurant for its food and helpful joyful staff. The continental... More

Perfect place to stay. We had booked elswhere but that fell through because the hotel closed down - talk about a blessing in disguise! Ellen, her husband and particularly the cat made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived, nothing we asked for was too much. The cottage was picturesque inside and out. Home made bread, big... More

This little outbuilding has been refurbished to the highest standard. It is delightful in every respect- light, airy, comfortable, with an ensuite shower room and small kitchen area. The bedding is lovely white cotton, really good towels, everything is spotlessly clean. French windows open on to a private covered patio area where you can enjoy alfresco breakfasts whatever the weather.... More

Very happy to recommend the Millers Cottage. Even if it’s all a bit ‘compact’ even for two, we prefer to have our own space to eat breakfast and to relax ( rather than the traditional B&B room). The location in Snape Village is great with an easy walk to the Maltings and en route only 3 minutes to a couple... More

We spent 3 nights in the 'Gardener's Cottage'. It was great. We liked having a kitchenette and being able to have breakfast how we liked, when we liked. The location is excellent. The property is characterful and stylish in a genuine country way. The hosts are relaxed and charming. (Not the sort of prissy types that normally run b&bs).

We have just spent 4 nights in the Miller's Cottage. The accommodation, which has its own private entrance, is tastefully decorated and furnished and impeccably clean. The bed with its crisp white bedding is one of the most comfortable we have slept in. There is a seperate sitting/ dining room with kitchenette which is well equipped. The continental breakfast was... More

We have just returned from 3 nights at The Old Mill and thoroughly recommend it. We chose the Garden House, it had everything for a tranquil, peaceful and comfortable stay. For us, the privacy was vey welcome-just to be able to come and go as we chose. We appreciated the lovely breakfasts Ellen stocked for us (fresh daily) and it... More

This was the 2nd time we had stayed with Ellen. Unfortunately the Garden House was already booked but Ellen very kindly accommodated us in the Miller's Cottage, which normally sleeps 4 (1 double & 2 single bed). As usual, Ellen had stocked the fridge with lots of nice surprises, yoghurts, melon, ham, cheese, milk, jams and home made bread for... More

Lovely place with excellent hosts. Website really doesn't do it justice.Tasteful decor. Maps, books, videos, thick towels, crispy sheets, toiletries. Breakfast stuff left ready in your flat with fruit, homemade bread and best homemade marmalade we have ever tasted, tea, coffee etc. to be enjoyed when you want it. This meant that we could have a proper lie-in as well... More

This B&B massively exceeded our expectations as the website really doesn't do the place justice. This accommodation comprises a gorgeous holiday- let style building, which is beautifully presented,full of character, well equipped and very private.
