QUAYSIDE COTTAGE is a stylish detached one-bedroomed bungalow sitting in the grounds of Quayside on the banks of the magnificent River Deben at Waldringfield. This is one of two holiday cottages that sits in the grounds of Quayside - the other is THE BOATHOUSE (also see The Boathouse at Quayside on the River Deben).

We have our own quay, making it ideal for boating (rowing boat available) and fishing (in particular sea bass during the summer).

This is a tranquil and picturesque coastal village, with a keen sailing community and boatyard where river cruises operate May to September, Arts and Crafts Studio with resident artist providing art lessons on request, beachfront pub dining (breakfast, lunch, dinner), and an excellent 18-hole golf course.

There are three properties in the grounds of Quayside: two stylish detached holiday cottag...

My husband and I needed a relaxing, quiet, and stress-free break, and we found it here for four days. The cottage felt like home as soon as we walked in, and the views of the river (and the walks just out the back gate along the river) are spectacular. The cottage is luxurious, with every possible convenience, even including binoculars...

Management response:

The location is terrific, right on the river bank with an excellent pub just around the corner. It's a lovely little cottage. Donna Morgan, the owner, is very pleasant and made us fell very welcome. We'd definitely visit again!

Management response:

Fifth visit to Quayside Cottage; why come back so often, cause it is just perfect? Beautiful view from the conservatory which is warm and cosy and is there whatever the weather! Ideal location, gastro pub 3 mins walk with great food and discounted when you stay at Quayside cottages. What more could you desire?

Management response:

Hi Jancey, Thank you so much for your kind review. It's always great to see you and Derek and looking forward to the next time. Love to you both, Donna and Ged, and Stuart xxx

About the neighbourhood
The market town of Woodbridge sits on the banks of the River Deben, once the only transport route by sailing barge to trade goods. Today's barges cruise the river for pleasure and are a sight to behold.

The River Deben is one of the finest estuaries to shape this Suffolk coastline. Approximately 9 miles of navigable water and in parts up to half a mile wide. Quayside sits on the banks of the river, in the village of Waldringfield which is about mid way, on the west bank.

This is a tranquil and picturesque coastal village, with a keen sailing community and boatyard where river cruises operate May to September, Arts and Crafts Studio with resident artist providing art lessons on request and beachfront pub dining (breakfast, lunch, dinner). We have an unusually high number of qualit...
