Walberswick has surrounding heath and marshland which are protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Walberswick is very popular with walkers, cyclists and families and is known for its annual crabbing competitions. Walberswick has attracted famous figures over the years with many famous celebrities maintaining homes in the village. The village has two pubs – The Anchor and The Bell Inn – the latter which inspired the creation of Adnams’ Ghost Ship Ale, a tearoom, art gallery and gift shop.

Lovely holiday home. Great location - close to the beach and both pubs and well located for a walk over to Southwold. Downstairs bedroom and bathroom ideal for my elderly mum and lovely big kitchen for large family meals. Also a welcome basket including scones with jam and clotted cream!! The addition of a vase full of fresh roses was a really nice touch too. Have stayed here before and will definitely stay again.

Mrs S,

The property is really good but the big kitchen diner with it's big farmhouse table is truly outstanding. The property is tucked away but a short walk from the sea, the river and Walberswick's charming village green, pubs and shops.
