Property code: OC-THSTU

Dappled with natural light, this studio accommodation presents an utterly cheerful place to stay on the brink of the Suffolk Coast AONB. Located just off the River Deben, you can lace up your walking boots to enjoy long walks along the picturesque waters before heading home to relax either indoors or out. The accommodation is laid out with two guests in mind, a romantic little bolthole with comfort assured. Spend time on your private veranda with a morning coffee or evening sundowner, before heading inside to cook up something delicious using fresh herbs from the garden.

Laid out in one room, the property is presented with a double bedroom at one side and a lounge at the other, separated by a versatile galley kitchen with a slimline dining space. The lounge area is a cosy corner with soft seating, a Smart TV and a Bluetooth speaker, a perfect space for putting your feet up as night falls. French doors lead out from here onto the covered veranda with decking and bistro furniture. The bedroom consists of a comfortable double bed and gives way to a separate shower room with a sumptuous rainforest shower – a great place to clean up after a day of water sports or other activities.

Stay close to home and explore the vibrant wildlife of Waldringfield. From the River Deben, you can embark on a paddleboarding or canoeing adventure, or simply spend time wandering along the pretty riverbank. For further thrilling activities, head to the local Twisted Oaks Bike Park (3.5 miles) to experience an adrenaline-pumping mountain bike adventure. A short distance away lies Felixstowe (9.5 miles), a vibrant port town with a traditional pier, a wide stretch of sandy beach and both a golf club and a seafront mini golf course for teeing off on sunny weather days.

The Studio has been a magical place to stayfrom watching birds on the patio with breakfast each morning to lazing in some much needed shade at 32 degrees! Having such a beautiful space to lay our heads has been rather fabulous, fitted to such a high quality with everything thought of (including gorgeous summer fruits on arrival- a lovely surpriseRead more when we opened the fridge), and the host is perfect, with great recommendations on places to go. I'm sure we will be back- missing the sparrows and the view from the Maybush already!
