Description

Set within the traditional and charming coastal town of Felixstowe, this family friendly seaside escape is the perfect place to bring everyone together.

With views across to the colourful beach huts that sit along the water’s edge and only a hop, skip and a jump away, you will be paddling in the sea and building sandcastles in no time. After a lovely day on the sandy shores, head back to the house and rinse off in the outside bathtub before making your way inside. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you could need during your stay and the dining area is perfect to enjoy delicious dinners all together. The lounge, with its flame effect fire and access to streaming services is ideal for relaxing in too.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms to choose from and accommodates up to seven guests. The main bedroom has been lovingly decorated with a perfectly positioned bed and window to enjoy the sea views. There is a further twin bedroom, as well as a fun children’s bedroom boasting a double bottom bunk bed.

To the rear of the property there is a glorious garden where you can bask in the evening sunshine with a tipple or two!

Why we love this property: The perfect coastal bolthole to enjoy endless days on the beach!

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 which remained popular until the 1930s. The Cliff Gardens, originally made up of private gardens attached to large clifftop houses, were also formalised in this period, and were recently renovated by the local council.
There is a shingle and sand beach, a two-mile long promenade as well as a theatre, cinema, bingo hall, golf club, and amusements. There are a number of 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.
