Durdans, Walberswick is live with Best of Suffolk today!
This delightful and spacious holiday home with three reception rooms, stands in almost an acre of secluded garden with mature trees and shrubs. Durdans is just minutes from the sea, within easy walking distance of the picturesque village of Walberswick and the Bailey Bridge to Southwold.
You are welcomed into a generous, bright and beautifully hand made fitted kitchen with separate utility area and door leading to the reading room. The large and comfortable drawing room, off the reading room, has an open fire and doors to the garden. The ‘den’ (fondly named by the owners) also has doors to an American style porch with open fireplace for chilly evenings and sockets for a sound system.
On the first floor there is an L shaped landing with doors opening to the master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a single with full size pull out bed, king and twin bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is an additional wet room on the ground floor off the hallway – great for sandy feet!
Double doors open directly into this large contemporary kitchen with bespoke units by well known Suffolk joiners Church and Gooderham. A skylight makes this a particularly bright room. The large wooden table is great for meals with friends and family with ten chairs and there are an additional two cane chairs and Welsh dresser stacked with cookery books for the chef of the party!
This detached house is tucked away in a quiet road close to the village. Three patios ensure that guests can enjoy the sun at any time of the day and a Weber coal BBQ is provided for the summer months. There is ample parking for two cars on the drive, as well as on generous grass verge.
Walberswick is a hidden gem in Suffolk. Until the early 20th century the village was a trading port, but today it is one of Suffolk’s top tourist attractions with picture postcard village green with tea rooms, restaurants and two public houses (The Anchor and The Bell), art gallery, original crafts and gift shops.
The village is famous for its annual crabbing competition and guests will enjoy the stunning sandy beach and marshland. Durdans is located just minutes from the harbour and a pretty walk over the Bailey a footbridge to the popular town of Southwold which boasts several excellent pubs and restaurants as well as a range of independent shops and galleries.
The town’s sandy beach is adorned with a string of colourful beach huts that lead along to the Pier. Guests can walk along the tow path to the Harbour Inn, enjoying the view of the fishing boats and yachts along the way or, during the summer, be rowed across the estuary in the ferry boat . Fresh fish, purchased from the iconic black Walberswick fishermen’s huts are a must!
