Surrounding local area

Briar Cottage is located in Friston, a small peaceful village 10 minutes from Aldeburgh and the coast and 10 minutes from Saxmundham which has the nearest railway station connecting from London. The local pub, The Old Chequers is a short walk away while there are a number of pubs in Snape alongside the world famous Snape Maltings concert hall which hosts the Festival in June and the Proms in August.
Friston is within the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are numerous peaceful walks from the village along with wildlife and bird watching. RSPB Minsmere is approximately 20 minutes away but closer to home there are walks out from Snape towards Iken where seals can be seen basking in the sunshine and numerous birds and wild fowl.
Aside from the attraction of the beaches at Aldeburgh and Thorpeness there are a number of activities to get involved with. Thorpeness Meare is worth a visit for younger guests and there are a number of impressive historical sites such as Orford and Framlingham Castles and the Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo and Woodbridge has a working tide mill dating back to 1793. The cottage is ideally placed to experience the fantastic opportunities on offer on the Suffolk coast.

A beautiful cottage with beautiful decor! So warm, cozy and welcoming - we have so enjoyed our time here! Olive has had great fun exploring secret paths and making doggie friends and her humans have visited various local towns and resorts. We booked Briar Cottage because of it's proximity to Snape, as we had booked tickets to a concert there for our first evening, An ideal cottage for music lovers!
