An incredibly striking home bursting with comfort and style, Walberswick House is a luxurious spot for a large group and all just a short walk from the beach!
As you approach the house you will be amazed by its sublime facade - a modern take on a traditional country home. And stepping inside it’s every bit as beautiful. Your vast farmhouse kitchen oozes traditional charm with a dazzling monochrome design throughout and impressive features, including a huge range cooker, a Belfast sink, blender and coffee machine. Delightfully connected alongside this through large open archways is an elegant dining area for the whole group, which itself links in wonderfully to the garden through a fully retractable wall of patio doors - inviting the warmth and sea air inside the home. There are two stunning living areas to choose from when it’s time to put your feet up. The first modelled like the dining area, with two separate entrances to the terrace through big French doors and a wood burner at its heart, the second embodying the same breath-taking bold design as the kitchen - and each brimming with cosy sofas and chairs for the ultimate relaxation.
For rest, meanwhile, there are five superb bedrooms, including four double rooms to choose from! All located on the first floor, each offers a fabulous view of the garden and, just beyond it, the sparkling sea! All five rooms, including two magnificent master bedrooms, feature the same deeply satisfying fusion of classical style and modern comfort, with huge comfortable beds set before vast French doors onto a brilliant balcony beyond or overlooking the garden. Across the balcony, sun loungers offer a place to soak up the sunshine, feel the sea air tingle at your skin and enjoy the peace of this incredible location. There are four double rooms and a fifth room with a set of bunk beds with a reading lamp over each bed. Two of the rooms enjoy fabulous ensuite facilities while there’s an additional bathroom on each floor, offering a range of walk-in showers, large bathtubs and elegant styling!
Out in your garden, meanwhile, a delightful mixture of manicured lawns and wild bushes echo the beach landscape just beyond the end of the boundary wall. Incredible garden furniture offers a comfortable spot for socialising or solitude, sunbathing or shade-seeking on a sunny day! With a fabulous table and chairs set up, you can dine alfresco together in the sun each day - perhaps enjoying a peaceful breakfast in the dawn glow!
Walberswick is a former fishing village known for its annual crabbing competitions. Its surrounding heath and marshland are protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and it is home to two pubs, a tearoom, art gallery and gift shop
Just across the street you’ll find a small Co-op, while about 300 meters away is the first pub, The Anchor, and less than 500 meters away is the superb sandy beach, with its vast dunes. The town itself is quaint and compact, perfect for a stroll.
And for something slightly bigger, just a few minutes’ walk, or short ferry journey, away, just across the harbour to the north, is Southwold, perhaps the most quintessentially English seaside town. The town itself is vibrant, with quaint shops, plenty of cafes and restaurants and countless scenic spots to sit back and watch the world go by! Whilst at the beach, you must pay a visit to the charmingly old-fashioned Pier, teeming with bizarre amusements, including Tim Hunkin’s eccentric inventions!
Meanwhile, if you fancy a tipple, or even just a fascinating few hours, visit the Adnams Brewery, winner of The Good Pub Guide 2011’s ‘Brewery of the Year’, where brewery tours are on offer throughout the year and you can try some of the huge variety of Adnams beers on offer. There’s also a thriving arts scene at Southwold Arts Centre during the summer months, so be sure to catch a show from Suffolk Summer Theatre!
Starting at its southern border with Essex and stretching all the way to Lowestoft and the Norfolk coast, the 50 miles stretch of enchanting and often wild coastline of Suffolk has a little something for everyone! With charming villages, medieval towns and exquisite natural beauty all set against breath-taking skies it is a true feast for the eyes!
