Description

This wonderfully presented, modern three-story town house is the ideal coastal bolthole for families wishing to be beside the seaside and to enjoy all that Felixstowe has to offer. Watermark is just a stone’s throw from the beach and with glorious views across the glistening blue sea is the perfect property for your next coastal getaway.

This contemporary home offers accommodation for six guests across three bedrooms with the master bedroom on the top floor boasting uninterrupted views of the sea from your private balcony. There is plenty of space throughout for holidaymakers to enjoy quality time together, whether that is in the living room looking out to sea and taking in the wonderful view or perhaps the children would like to enjoy the play park just outside. One key benefit of this property is that there is no road or vehicle access at the front of the property, with direct pedestrian access from the front door to a children’s play area, the promenade, and the beach.

As you’re on holiday perhaps you fancy dining out? In which case, just a short walk away is Beach Street Felixstowe which is full of lovely local cafes, shops, and independents, the perfect place to relish in some locally sourced, scrumptious seafood, and of course your seaside favourite fish and chips!

Why we love this property: A modern holiday home in the heart of Felixstowe with direct access to the beach and stunning views out to sea.

Reviews

This is a really comfortable property, well equipped and the perfect base when visiting Felixstowe.

Mrs W,

This is a lovely property in a very interesting location. It is very well furnished - the owners have thought of everything. As it overlooks the sea we could go to sleep at night with the waves lapping and during the day we could see the container ships and ferries go by from our window. We will definitely return as soon as we can as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Mrs D,

A lovely comfortable house conveniently situated for beach, port & town. Beautifully decorated and furnished to a very high standard with quality fixtures and fittings. Lots of thoughtful extras for all the family.

Mr M,

Map

Much of the town of Felixstowe is only about 100 years old, expanding with the port, but Old Felixstowe has been in existence since Roman times (at low tide from Jacob's Ladder, it is possible to glimpse the seaweed-covered remains of a Roman fort). The town stands at the mouth of the rivers Deben and Orwell where you can enjoy fishing and sailing.
A visit to the town by the then German Imperial family in 1891, along with the famous 'Felixstowe Spa' (providing high quality spa water) and the building of the pier and railway link, boosted tourism to the town. The Cliff Gardens, originally made up of private gardens attached to large clifftop houses, were also formalised in this period, and have been extensively renovated by the local council to return them to their original Edwardian splendour.
There is a shingle and sand beach, a two-mile long promenade as well as a theatre, cinema, golf club, pier, and amusements, all of which have benefited from significant investment in recent years. There is a busy pedestrianised high street with local shops, restaurants, and cafes, as well as a range of supermarkets and other facilities within close range.

There are several Martello Towers and a fort along this stretch of coastline, built to resist a potential invasion by Napoleon, and the whole area has many historic houses, monuments, and nature reserves to visit. Watermark is located adjacent to one of Felixstowe’s historic Martello Towers and the Napoleonic Landguard Fort and museum can be reached on foot through Landguard nature reserve, where there are viewing facilities for Felixstowe and Harwich ports, a café, and foot ferries to Harwich and to Shotley peninsular
