  • "Nice cottage but would be even better if: Could have done with a spare kitchen bin bag so we could change it mid week."

    Wasn’t prepared to buy a roll for a size we wouldn’t use a home The kettle needs descaling. I rinsed it the best I could but still had gritty tea. The fridge is very noisy and disturbed our sleep.

  • "The owners were very helpful."

    It is quietly tucked away from the main road. Very handy for Snape Maltings. A good base for us to re explore the Suffolk locality. the bed was very comfortable, which makes a big difference when away from home.

  • "The Nookery is set in really peaceful surroundings yet close to all amenities, the coast and interesting places to visit."

    The Nookery is really cosy and had everything I needed plus a secure, enclosed garden, which was perfect for my dogs and I to relax in. The owners, Aline and Matt, are lovely and kind. I would recommend this haven 100%!

  • "A delightful property in a lovely setting!"

    Comfortable and peaceful, one of the best stays I've experienced. Perfect for exploring this wonderful part of Suffolk. From fish and chips on Aldeburgh beach, a pint in the Plough and Sail, Snape, to walking my Golden Doodle, Mabel, on Tunstall common. Outstanding!

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in the peaceful, secluded haven of The Nookery."

    The property has been thoughtfully converted to give spacious, stylish accommodation with good quality furnishings and fabrics. Plenty of hot water and generous heating added to our comfort, as well as the bed, easily one of the best we've encountered in our travels. A special mention to the pretty, private garden, also the easy to follow directions, ample car parking and the well lit entrance through a wisteria arch leading to The Nookery itself, all so well designed and maintained. We also appreciated the entrance lobby/ utility room/ drying room, a really practical feature. Thank you! We would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

  • "We loved the Nookery cottage, beautifully furnished, welcoming and comfortable."

    The addition of the private walled garden was a real bonus. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility, knowing the owners were available close by if needed to sort any minor problems was great. Would definitely recommend the Nookery cottage and we should love to return on another occasion.

  • "Lovely cottage , well equipped and a good base for touring Suffolk ."

    The only point I would raise is the path leading to the property has several loose setts making it a trip hazard .

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at The Nookery. Our apologies for the trip hazard on the pathway but it transpires that a mole has taken up residence under our path and pushed a few of the cobbles up en route! Thank you for bringing this to out attention. Aline and Matt Property Owner

The property

Enjoying a wonderfully secluded location, The Nookery at Snape Hall near Saxmundham in Suffolk offers a relaxing rural retreat for couples.

Approached along a private driveway, the property feels like a real oasis of calm and the holiday begins as soon as you park up and soak up the calming ambience.

The open-plan living space provides a delightful area in which to chill out, eat, drink and enjoy spending quality time together.

The seating area invites you to curl up, maybe take a book from the bookcase, pop on some music, grab a glass of your favourite tipple and indulge in some ‘me’ time.

If you’re feeling peckish then step into the light and airy kitchen where you can prepare delicious food for that special someone before serving up at the elegant circular dining table cleverly positioned by the patio doors overlooking the lush gardens.

When the sun is shining take a seat on the glorious patio area surrounded by flowers and plants and with captivating views over the gardens.

You can imagine spending many a happy hour sat out here whist enjoying a meal or drinks alfresco.

When bedtime beckons the sumptuously appointed super-king-size bed awaits and with large feature windows there is nowhere nicer to wake up in the morning and after a refreshing shower or relaxing soak in the bath, it’s time to head out and explore the delights of the local area.

The cottage is a short walk from Snape and the famous Maltings, a multi-media arts complex which is home to the renowned Aldeburgh Festival and well worth checking out.

There are plenty of shops and pubs close by too so a great opportunity for a browse and to stop off for some refreshment.

Aldeburgh is a bustling seaside town with a beach and plenty of shops, galleries, pubs, and restaurants to discover, or if you fancy something more active then choose from cycling, sailing, walking and golf, all available within a short distance.

There are a number of attractions worth jumping in the car to visit such as Africa Alive Zoological Reserve, Framlingham Castle and Sutton Hoo and great towns to take a trip to whilst you’re in the area include Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft.

Find your niche with a memorable stay at The Nookery at Snape Hall.
