1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Woodbridge, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
THE BOATHOUSE is a stylish detached one-bedroomed two-storey dwelling 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 QUAYSIDE COTTAGE (also see Quayside Cottage 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...

The welcome by Donna was very friendly indeed and she spent time showing us the facilities and chatting with us. We appreciated the cake she left for...

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...
