Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages

The house is a fine C18th Rectory on the approaches to the small, quiet village of Alderton, which lies off the beaten track, on the Deben Peninsula, in Suffolk.

The house is located just a mile from the Suffolk coast and sits in 18 acres of private grounds comprising beautiful gardens, paddocks and woodland for your enjoyment. There is also a hard tennis court available for your private use.

As you enter the house there is a magnificent sense of stepping back in time; the grand piano, a cosy library, the original stone floors and mementos from generations past conjure an atmosphere reminiscent of times gone by.

The East Anglia region

The immediate area is steeped with sites of historical interest: the world famous Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo (500AD); the Landmark Fort at Felixstowe (17th century); Martello towers along the coast (Napoleonic wars); WWI & II fortifications; Bawdsey Radar Museum (radar was developed at Bawdsey); Parham Airfield Museum (WWII) and Orford Ness (Cold War installations) to name but a few.

Great opportunities exist for birdwatching, walking, shooting in season, bicycling, horse riding, antique collecting, golf and sailing.

Woodbridge

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.

5/5

"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.
