Iken is a reputed base of Boudica and the marauding Iceni tribes who made good use of the commanding position on the south side of the Alde Estuary. Later, in 869AD, a Viking sailing fleet destroyed the 7th Century monastery at Iken. In the 19th Century sailing barges used the river to trade corn and coal between Snape, London and the east coast ports. Now, you will see the occasional pleasure boat whilst taking in the highly regarded sssi wildlife habitat and the stunning estuary scenery. Views span from the 7th Century St Butolphs Church, standing on a promontory of higher ground, to the former maltings at Snape which are now vibrant with the sounds of the famous concert hall.

"Beautiful location, stunning views."
"“Excellent accommodation. Very comfortable for two people. Well fitted kitchen and spacious lounge and bedroom. But....the location is just superb. Private and tranquil with stunning views over the estuary from the property and the garden. Walk from the garden with easy access to the estuary pathway. Perfect for dog owners. Just superb. Very close to Snape Maltings which proved very handy for coffee and the occasional meal.” "

"Absolutely fantastic location. Reception could not have been more helpful in finding a solution to ensure that our dog could not get up the stairs (as he is small and we were worried he might fall). Such a peaceful location overlooking the estuary, we absolutely loved it, and could not recommend it more highly to others."
