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 of friendly inns aspiring to gastropub status. We used it as a base for a couple of birding trips to RSPB Minsmere, which is less than half an hour away. Hospitable, relaxed hosts. Britten fans will get appreciate the historical association.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Old Mill, dating from 1797, overlooks the village of Snape and The Maltings Concert Hall (a short walk away) on the River Alde beyond. It was originally converted in 1937 by Benjamin Britten where he lived until 1947, and where he composed 'Peter Grimes.'The property still retains the character that Britten bought to it, but has been updated in recent years, and now offers very comfortable accommodation in either of two separate cottages within the grounds. Both have their own private entrance and their own garden in which you will find picnic tables, chairs and a barbecue. Each has a small kitchen with sink, a microwave oven/grill, a refrigerator, kettle, toaster, and the various other accouterments you would expect to make your stay comfortable and convenient. We will provide an extensive 'continental' breakfast in your cottage, to your requirements. ... more less
