    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    THE BOATHOUSE is a stylish detached one-bedroomed two-storey dwelling sitting in the grounds of Quayside on the banks of the magnificent River Deben at Waldringfield. This is one of two holiday cottages that sits in the grounds of Quayside - the other is QUAYSIDE COTTAGE (also see Quayside Cottage at Quayside on the River Deben).

    We have our own quay, making it ideal for boating (rowing boat available) and fishing (in particular sea bass during the summer).

    This is a tranquil and picturesque coastal village, with a keen sailing community and boatyard where river cruises operate May to September, Arts and Crafts Studio with resident artist providing art lessons on request, beachfront pub dining (breakfast, lunch, dinner), and an excellent 18-hole golf course.

We stayed in the boathouse for a total of 7 weeks during January to March and what a relaxing time it was. The boathouse is fully equipped except for...

I cannot fault the Boathouse in any respect. With an excellent foodie pub a few steps away it is like having a suite in a five star hotel. Except that you are met on arrival by the friendly owners who have put a lot of care and imagination into providing quality accommodation of character. Superbly equipped, it is spacious and... more
