Alderton

The property is situated on the approaches to the small, quiet village of Alderton, which lies off the beaten track, on the Deben Peninsula, in Suffolk.

Alderton lies between the Heritage Coast and the Deben estuary in an area known locally as the “Peninsula” and is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a pub, The Swan and an excellent village shop/Post Office. Close by is a highly recommended riverside pub, the Ramsholt Arms, and in the next door village, Shottisham, an equally recommended pub, The Sorrel Horse.

Also nearby is the attractive market town of Woodbridge; the riverside village of Orford with its medieval castle and Snape with the famous Maltings Concert Hall and excellent shops. Slightly further afield are: the renowned bird sanctuary of Minsmere and the fashionable seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold.

"Beautiful period property"

A wonderful house, set in beautiful grounds and close to some fabulous places to visit in Suffolk. We were a large group of young professionals staying for a long weeekend and the owners are very friendly and accomodating. The house is well kept and hospitable.
