Description

The Forge at Croft Farm in the Suffolk village of Snape is a perfect romantic retreat for any couple looking for some peace and quiet during their stay in this beautiful part of the county. This studio style pet-friendly cottage is situated within a working farm and is comfortably furnished throughout with its highlight being the mezzanine style bedroom on the first floor. This unique cottage comes with an open plan layout on the ground floor with beautiful bi-folding doors flooding the area with natural light.

Self-catering couldn’t be easier in this charming cottage – it comes with a fully equipped kitchen area, dining area and cosy sitting area for relaxing. The shower room also resides on this floor and has a spacious shower cubicle.
The mezzanine has been beautifully finished with a cleverly installed vaulted window which gives great views. The bedroom is great area to retire to after a busy day sightseeing with a super king size bed which can be converted into twin beds if required.

The private patio area outside the cottage is simply gorgeous and garden furniture is supplied for making the most out of this area.

The village of Snape appeals to a wide range of guests – those that adore the countryside will enjoy exploring this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by foot or bicycle and for lovers of all things coastal both Aldeburgh and Southwold are only a short drive away. The best of both worlds!

The Forge and The Granary are both situated within Croft Farm and can be booked together to accommodate seven guests. Shop: 500 yards Pub: 1300 yards.

Why We Love This Property

Snape is best known as the venue for the Aldeburgh Festival and for other events throughout the year held in the Maltings Concert Hall. However, the pretty village, at the head of the tidal estuary, is a popular holiday venue in its own right and central for exploring the unique area of the Suffolk Heritage Coast - the tidal estuary and network of footpaths are one of the most interesting areas of Suffolk for exploring on foot. There is easy access to the fascinating coastal town of Aldeburgh, plus castles and much more to explore at Framlingham and Orford. The burial treasures at Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, should not be missed either.
