  • “We asked Sykes to ask the owner to join the second bedroom beds together.”

    The owner did not receive that request and could not help as the housekeeper had the relevant key. The owner was helpful but not at all intrusive. Some things were not available so we had to buy a bread knife. The property would benefit from a dishwasher. There was a good standard of cleanliness but the white mugs had some residual grime which soaking could not remove so we bought a couple of mugs. Plenty of facilities nearby, both food shopping and restaurants, and the guide in the house was ...

The property

Offering a delightful base on the southern coast of Suffolk, this annexe property boasts contemporary interior and is within walking distance of amenities in the port town of Felixstowe.

Saxon Lodge Cottage rests at the back of the owner's property with private access via a side gate, so you and your friends or family will have your own space to retreat to after days exploring this lovely seaside location.

Socialise at your leisure in the kitchen/diner, where splashes of blue echo a seaside theme, complementing the sleek black kitchen units which are home to an excellent gas range cooker and hob, so you can get the evening meal on the go while a bottle of wine is opened around the table.

Step atop the stylish distressed wood flooring and retire to the sitting area after your feast; watch a film on the Smart TV which is set against pretty feature wallpaper, with the last of the evening light coming through the dual-aspect windows.

Up on the first floor, the spacious bathroom with a double basin continues the sea blue theme, and holds a fantastic shower enclosure for you to freshen up in.

Rest your head in one of the two bedrooms, with a king-size and a twin room, both being zip/link beds so you can choose the layout that best suits the group.

The master bedroom has a special feature with the decked balcony offering a charming spot to relax in, whether it's in the evening watching the sky change colour, or with a hot cup of tea in the morning.

Explore your surroundings on foot and head down to Felixstowe Beach to enjoy four-miles of sand and shingle beach, take a paddle in the waters or grab some fish and chips or an ice cream from one of the several beachfront businesses.

Walk down to Landguard Fort, an 18th century military structure where the first Royal Marines' land battle took place, those who love history can marvel at this large building.

Browse the many shops centered in Felixstowe with some high-street favourites as well as independent local shops too, or head into the busy town of Ipswich for a host of attractions, including Ipswich Town Football Club or Christchurch Mansion and Christchurch Park, a huge Tudor mansion with a major art collection.

Saxon Lodge Cottage is a perfect choice for a seaside break.

About the location

FELIXSTOWE, SUFFOLK

Ipswich 14 miles; Colchester 29 miles

Nestled between the rivers Orwell and Deben, this charming seaside town on the Suffolk coast, offers a wonderful mix of attractions and activities to suit all ages and interests. Steeped in history, this town dates back to before the Norman conquest of England, and its interesting heritage can be discovered at Felixstowe Museum, right on the tip of its sunny port, at Landguard Point. Don't miss a visit to Landguard Fort while in the area, where you can discover the rich military and maritime heritage by exploring the maze of rooms and passageways inside. This vibrant town also invites you to stroll along the seafront, taking in the fine Edwardian architecture; head to the thrilling children’s rides at Manning’s Amusements and Ocean Boulevard, and even hop on the little foot ferry for a trip to Bawdsey. This lovely, coastal village boasts a fascinating past, set on the beautiful Deben Peninsula, with Bawdsey RADAR and Bawdsey Manor to visit. Ipswich can be reached by car or train, and offers a selection of restaurants and bars overlooking the marina at the dock. This is one of England's oldest towns boasting the youngest Grade I listed building, which is located in the centre. Explore the beautiful landscapes within Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), rich with wildlife, this region is home to saltmarsh plants, wetland and coastal birds and a wide variety of mammals. Take a long walk beside the sea, a brisk stroll before lunch and cycling along quiet lanes. Those keen to try watersports, there is canoeing, rowing and windsurfing, among many other outdoor pursuits, as well as kitesurfing. A wonderful region to visit, all-year-round!
