Deben View is a luxurious escape, located  on the edge of the tidal River Deben, with unspoilt views across the estuary to Sutton Hoo. This gorgeous waterside Apartment  is in a prime position to watch yachts floating past, water birds roaming along the riverbed and the superb Suffolk skies at sunrise and sunset. This quayside development formerly the Whisstock’s boatyard is becoming a vibrant and at times a bustling area, especially during the summer months with music afternoons and local events that can be enjoyed. The restaurant below offers alfresco dining, cafes and other amenities are a stone’s throw away. If you want to be in the heart of the waterfront then this is the property for you. 

This beautiful apartment has been so wonderfully designed to offer guests the most magnificent stay in this gorgeous location. Why not sit back, relax and relish in the unrivalled views, as you enjoy your morning cup of tea from the comfort of bed or sipping on a glass of bubbly in the bath, as you watch the sunshine glistening off the water's surface. If this wasn’t already enough to entice you to stay at Deben View, this lovely waterside property offers bright open plan living, dining and kitchen area, creating a warm and welcoming hub to this holiday home. Perfectly positioned windows and full-length double French doors leading out to your private terrace, help capture the essence of this home and showcase the exquisite scenery that surrounds Woodbridge.

Everything about this apartment is just perfect: comfort (including mattress), cleanliness, equipment, location, views, spacious balcony with plush furniture, copious maps for walkers and local information. The rarest of gems in the holiday rental market.

Mr V,

The apartment is simply stunning! From the moment we walked in and saw the view over the river Deben we were happy. The property is fitted out to the very highest standard and it made for a very enjoyable and comfortable week.

Dr H,

We loved the balcony with such gorgeous views. A fantastic apartment. Thank you, we've had a lovely week.

Mr Christopher P,

One word..exquisite!! Rarely have arrived at a holiday let to find to find the property far more exceptional than the brochure (which looked great!) The attention to detail, the luxurious finishes and the quality made for the most wonderfully relaxed week. Even on wet & windy days the view was fabulous from the cosy comfort of the apartment. Thank you for such a lovely experience. The thought put into every aspect of Deben View was very much appreciated.

Mr Scott S,

We thought we had died & gone to heaven when we walked into your beautiful apartment. Everything is in pristine condition and we noted everything is the best quality. We really appreciate that. Fallen in love with Woodbridge and the surrounding areas. The views are fantastic & balcony is brill. Couldn't have been any better for my special 70th birthday. We will be returning to your lovely home. The lovely hot weather was a big bonus. Thank you.

Mrs Carol T,

A stunning, unbeatable location, wonderful ever changing views. A lot of thought has clearly gone into planning & fitting out this beautiful apartment. We had a great time here - explored lots throughout Suffolk - and were always happy to return to base.

Mr Bernard O,

What luxury! And the best week of the underwhelming summer, with very special views. You have a wonderful place - pristine! And everything from the super soft towels to the beautiful balcony has made it a week to remember.

Past Customer,

Amazing views & apartment, had a wonderful time. Also lucky with the weather.

Previous Customer,

This is our first time in Woodbridge & we've not been disappointed. We always try to stay in a property overlooking the water and this location has been perfect. Add good food & lovely walks to the mix & it's a winner.

Mr Brian H,

The views from the balcony are exceptional! We had a wonderful time using the binoculars to watch the world go by, and the telescope also got a lot of use. It's a perfect location in the centre of the action but still amazingly serene.

Past Customer,

Truly exceptional apartment, everything you would want for a holiday and much more. The bath is very special, the beds super comfy & the little details make it feel very luxurious. Wonderful location with so much on your doorstep and such special river views.

Past Customer,

Dear Deben View, thank you so much for the amazing stay! Our family have enjoyed it so much! Great balcony too! We have spent many nights on there! Poppy

Past Customer,

Beautiful apartment with the best views of the river! Blessed with glorious weather & scenic countryside, towns and villages. A great break.

Mrs Ann G,

Perfect apartment, a wonderful week. Love Woodbridge, we will be back.

Mrs Teresa W,

Fantastic apartment - attention to detail off the scale! Lovely county - we will be back.

Mr John H,

Such a beautiful apartment with the most amazing views, but it's the little details that really make Deben View feel like a home away from home.

Miss Vicky A,

We have very much enjoyed the position, your thoughtful details (the maps, guides etc) and being in Woodbridge. Lovely apartment!

Mr Simon M,

A superb apartment with the most fabulous views! Beautifully placed & decorated. A place of tranquility, delight & peace! Thank you!

Mrs Lehr P,

We feel very honoured to be the first guests in such a beautiful apartment. You have thought of absolutely everything to make your guests feel comfortable and thoroughly spoiled. First class!!

Mr John K,

Great location with great views of the river and within walking distance of plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs. The apartment was thoughtfully equipped, everything had a feeling of luxury.

Mr L,

We found this holiday property excellent, the cleanliness was the best we have seen anywhere, everything was the best quality, which is something we appreciate. There was nothing we could fault. Views from the enormous balcony was so good, with good quality garden furniture to use. The area was brilliant too, lots of walks and Woodbridge was a sweet little town, friendly pubs and restaurants 5 minutes walk away. Highly recommended.

Mrs T,

The views from this apartment down the river Deben are stunning whether sitting snuggly in the corner of the lounge or out on the balcony dining al fresco. The apartment is furnished to a high standard with all the necessary facilities (and a telescope!) for a holiday from home. En suite to both bedrooms (with baths, not often found) is great being spacious and comfortable. From Woodbridge there are so many varied days out to suit all the family and Woodbridge itself is a quaint little town to explore with lovely walks up and down river. Well done JLR, a great place to stay.

Past Customer,

Deben View is a fantastic property. It’s in a great location with lots to see and do right on your doorstep. The property itself is gorgeous, well equipped and very comfortable. The balcony was the stand out feature though, and gave amazing views across the river Deben. It’s only a 5 minute walk into Woodbridge which has lots of great shops and restaurants. We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely go again.

Past Customer,

Right on the Deben estuary with a stunning 180 degree view as the tide and weather changes !!

Past Customer,

Well Deben View is simply stunning! Pristine, luxurious and wanting for nothing sums it up. The views of the river at high tide from the balcony enthral and change with the evening light. The apartment was supplied with beautiful crockery, quality cooking equipment and a even a range of books to help you get the most from your holiday. The attention to detail was noticed and appreciated. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

Mrs G,

Think the best apartment in Woodbridge, large balcony overlooking the estuary. Very near Tide Mill and museum. Within easy walking distance of lots of pubs, restaurants etc. After a quiet year it was great to hear people having fun. The equipment in Deben View is top class, beds comfortable. Looking forward to our next visit.

Mrs W,

Deben View is absolute perfection. The location is great for being able to take a 5 minute wander into Woodbridge for the shops and pubs, but you also have the amazing views down the river. We didn’t have the nicest weather for our stay but still managed to make the most of sitting out on the balcony, and even when it was raining the low windows around the living room mean you can curl up on a sofa and enjoy the scenery. The property is beautifully furnished - fresh and clean but still keeping a cosy feel. There’s everything you could possibly need and the little touches make it feel like a home away from home.

Miss A,

Deben View is a very classy apartment in a superb position overlooking the boatyard and the River Deben and within easy walking of the many facilities of Woodbridge. Decor and furnishings are of a very high standard, and the spacious living area was great for the two of us but would be fine also for four. It was a pleasant surprise to find a generous Welcome Pack of food and drink on arrival, and the presentation of the apartment was immaculate. The provision of one parking space nearby was ideal for us One comment about the location is worth making. It's a stunning view but a busy area. As stated in the description there is a restaurant/bar underneath and other activities close by and we can imagine it could be quite noisy in high season when windows would have to be open. Probably a better choice then for 'bon viveurs' than those looking for tranquillity. Woodbridge is a super place as a base for the Suffolk Coast. Great shops, nice pubs and restaurants and walks along the river. At Deben View you are in the heart of it and we really appreciated the opportunity to spend a week there.

Mr M,
