|The Old Mill, dating from 1797, overlooks the village of Snape and The Maltings (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 brought to it, but has been recently updated and now offers very comfortable holiday 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 is fully equipped for self-catering, with a new fitted kitchen containing all the various accoutrements you would expect to make your stay comfortable, convenient and enjoyable.
