About this location

The East Anglia region

East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions. From the University city of Cambridge, the waterways of the Norfolk Broads, beautiful Suffolk river estuaries, fashionable market and seaside towns such as Aldeburgh and Southwold. There is plenty to do and see! Constable landscapes, with big skies, uncrowded beaches and bird and wildlife sanctuaries. The region has the lowest rainful in the UK and plenty of sunshine.


Woodbridge is a charming market town at the head of the river Deben, famous for its Tide Mill and gastronomic diversity. At nearby Orford, you can climb the 12th century castle keep for views over Europe's largest vegetated shingle spit and eat delicious seafood in the Butley Oystery. There are many National Trust and old heritage sites nearby, such as Sutton Hoo and Snape Maltings.

Waldringfield is an unspoilt village surrounded by farmland and lies within the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Deben Estuary is beautiful, it is untouched by development.

"Ideal for a tranquil holiday in Suffolk"

We found Holmlea to be an extremely comfortable well equipped house. Spotlessly clean, we really could not fault a thing, it definitely lived up to or even exceeded all our expectations.
Everything needed for a great holiday is there with lots of interesting places to visit locally.
The house is in a perfect position, the river Deben with a beach and lots of boats is just a short walk from the house. The nearby Maybush Inn is worth a visit with excellent views of the river from their terrace.
We would certainly recommend Holmlea a real family home from home.

"Great house, very homely and perfect location"

We stayed at Holmlea for a long weekend and were very pleased. Having booked this place last minute due to our previous accommodation falling through, we couldnt have been happier that it did. The house is lovely with and we loved the big open plan kitchen with the doors out to the garden - it was perfect to enjoy the sunny weekend. The house is well equipped and the location is great, only a few doors down from the local pub the Maybush which is fantastic and with great views over the river. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return ourselves if we are in the area again!

"Beautiful house and location"

We had a month stay Jan/Feb 2013 at Homlea and it was all we wanted and more. Great location next to The Maybush too. Harry was really helpful when we had a problem with the heating and sorted out a plumber straight away even though he was away on holiday abroad at the time, unfortunately our granddaughter broke a blanket hamper while on a visit to us but Harry did not deduct anything for this from our breakages deposit :) The house was warm and comfortable during a very cold and snowy period of the year too. If I could find any negatives it would be to have a bigger tv but thats probably because we had a long time there during the winter so watched more tv than normal and the beds were rather too hard for us but some people like very hard beds so thats a matter of preference.
