Bawdsey lies on the estuary of the River Deben, where walkers and weekend sailors sit outside the pubs gazing across to the pine forests and heath land of the Bawdsey Peninsula. Nearby, Bawdsey Manor was where radar was developed and there are lots of historical sites to visit around the area. There is also a sandy beach for children, and sailing at Bawdsey Quay only two miles away. From here you can take the foot ferry to Felixstowe Ferry just across the river.

Really enjoyed the artwork and sculpture in the property which contributed to its distinctive character. Mrs R Wooldridge Smith - 19th August 2018
A lovely home from home feel, pool table and table tennis big hit with all members of familyMr Alan Sendall - 12th August 2018
The property was really excellent! The table tennis and snooker table in the garage was a winner for the kids. We had no kettle to begin with but the Suffolk secrets team sorted one out really quickly. We had two wasps nests but they were also sorted out quickly. Amazing!!Mrs Philippa Harsant - 5th August 2018
Great time spent, loved the house. Mr Tom Brown - 11th April 2018
