Constructed on brick-stilts that allow the occasional high tide to pass through, The Boathouse, Felixstowe Ferry affords unrivalled views of the spectacular Deben Estuary and its abundant wildlife.

Dating back to Edwardian times, the expertly-restored retreat is rich in fascinating stories of the past, brimming with antiques and quirky elements that promise a wonderfully memorable stay.

Sleeping up to six guests with two children, this really is the perfect place for a family escape… particularly when you have the choice of two stunning, scenic balconies to relax on!

Inside await features that evoke a fairytale sea-haven, including a magnificent winding staircase hand-crafted from wood, and double doors that lead to a glorious sun room, complete with a cosy day bed that overlooks the water.

The sociable U-shaped kitchen, meanwhile, is perfectly equipped for seafaring feasts of just about every description, with its huge range-like cooker and reclaimed wooden worktops. Enjoy the fruits of your culinary labours all together, seated around the large farmhouse-style dining table.

Sleeping spaces include a master superking bedroom with jaw-dropping panoramic views and an indulgent en-suite bathroom, a kids’ room with bespoke bunk beds, and two elegant doubles. One even comes complete with a scenic balcony… perfect for morning coffee.

Catch the passenger ferry – just 100 yards away – over to Bawdsey, walk to the local pub, or just relax at The Boathouse with a book and a glass of wine, marvelling at your exceptional holiday fortune.
