Cambridge or Norwich are just an hour away, yet we find ourselves able to enjoy the sense of peace and quiet. Our cottage is just 40 meters from the River Deben and the Maybush Inn right on the waterfront, where you can enjoy excellent food and a drink on the terrace overlooking the river and boating activities.

                      Along the waterfront there is a very active sailing club and a sandy beach where children can amuse themselves and go swimming, crabbing or fishing. Waldringfield golf club is just up the hill and is open to non-members. Bicycle hire is available locally.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: Dudley and Liz who are retired and live in Surrey, have a daughter who lives in Woodbridge with her husband with their three sons. We decided to purchase a cottage close to them as a second home. Because we were not using it enough, we decided to let it for holiday use and visit when there are vacancies!

                      Why the Owner Chose Woodbridge:
                      Our criteria was for the location to be close to Woodbridge in a sort after quiet location. After extensive searching we found Ivydene, adding an extension and totally renovated the whole cottage to a high standard (Liz is an interior designer). We also required a south facing rear garden with a lawn and car/boat parking.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
