Situated in a location steeped in history, ‘Zeppelin’ is a fascinating 2-bedroom cottage that is built on a site once devastated by the East Anglia air raids of 1915. Its memorable name owing to the German aircraft which conducted numerous attacks across Suffolk during the Great War. Over a century on, you will find this former bomb site has been stunningly transformed into an exceptional 2-bedroom home which offers space, sophistication, and style for your self-catering stay. Zeppelin is more than just a holiday bolthole, but a residential monument of true historical significance. Nestled in the historical riverside town of Woodbridge, Zeppelin has a great deal to offer on the doorstep. The popular Woodbridge high street, with its mix of cafes and shops, is just a stone’s throw away. The River Deben runs alongside Woodbridge and there are some scenic walks to be had along the banks.

Every little detail of this holiday cottage has been considered with the guest experience in mind. The accommodation consists of a stunning open-plan ground floor hosting a bespoke kitchen, a dedicated dining area perfect for sharing stories over a homecooked meal, and a cosy sitting area with plush seating for four – the perfect space for relaxing after exploring this fascinating part of Suffolk. An easy staircase then leads to a first floor consisting of two light and sumptuous bedrooms each with king size beds and generous storage space. The lavish bathroom completes the first floor and is fitted out with a 4 piece bathroom suite.

Location, Location, Location! Zeppelin’s ideal positioning is the real cherry on top. Situated within the quaint, historic market town of Woodbridge, you will have plenty to fill your stay with. Woodbridge thoroughfare is just a 5 minute stroll away and offers much to discover with plenty of interesting shops and cafes. Beyond the centre of the town are the banks of the river Deben, ever changing throughout the seasons and the perfect place for a scenic stroll, a picnic or to merely sketch the yachts as they rise and fall with the tide. Woodbridge itself also boasts the fantastic Riverside Theatre, where you can enjoy its charming cinema or a spot of lunch. The Tide Mill Museum offers a fascinating tour where you can learn about the history and working of the Tide Mill. Within just a 10 minute car journey, you can take a trip to the National Trust site of Sutton Hoo. With its fascinating past and the sites of two early medieval cemeteries, this archaeological site which uncovered the Anglo-Saxon Great Ship Burial is truly a must visit and it is now even the focus of the Netflix film, The Dig! Keen explorers and ornithologists should also plan in a visit to the RSPB Minsmere, approximately half an hours drive away, where you can enjoy idyllic walks, birdwatching and family activities. Other notable spots for a visit include Aldeburgh to enjoy the Suffolk Coast, Snape with riverside walks and the famous concert hall at Snape Maltings, and Orford as another location brimming with history.

So, for a holiday cottage that ticks all the boxes that we think you will want to book again and again, Zeppelin is ideal for your next Suffolk staycation.  Pub: 100 yards, Shop: 0.25 mile.

We had a great stay at Zeppelin cottage. The cottage is well appointed, thoughtfully designed, comfortable, clean and welcoming. We found unrestricted roadside parking nearby. We found all we needed in walking distance of the cottage: shops, cafes, restaurants and riverside walks.
