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.

The location was fantastic; as were the swimming pool and the tennis courts. Mrs Deepa Henke - 31st July 2018
We've had a a great time celebrating a 'significant' birthday in these fantastic surroundings. All the family, from the youngest to the oldest, have really enjoyed their stay here. Highly recommended. Thank you very much!The Wards - 18th July 2015
