In prime location in the popular village of Walberswick, 1 Anchor Cottage is a beautiful newly renovated cottage. With an additional extension on what was once a traditional, small and cosy cottage the property has been transformed into a large, spacious and modern holiday home. Boasting glorious sea views and large private gardens to enjoy, this is a truly special holiday home.

On entering the property you’re welcomed into a large open hallway with an area for hanging coats, shoe storage and dog bed. The open plan living/dining/kitchen room is the real centre point of this home. Beautifully spacious and offering the ideal space for your whole group to gather and socialise. The large sliding doors cleverly slide into the walls giving a real openness and brings the outside in during the summer months. The kitchen has been equipped to the highest standard, with everything you will need and more to cook up some culinary delights and with the luxury of not one but two dishwashers no one will be slaving over the sink. A contemporary Rais woodburner sits in the corner of the room offering a cosy feel during the winter months making this cottage perfect for holiday throughout the year. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor area. 

At the front of the property sits a cosy snug room with another woodburner and Smart TV. The ideal space to sneak away and enjoy some quiet time. 1 Anchor Cottage also boasts ground floor facilities with a ground floor bedroom and shower room. Ideal for members of the party that may wish to avoid using the stairs.

Up on the first and second floor the property offers an additional four bedrooms. All beautifully furnished to a very high standard offering guests storage and comfort.

1 Anchor Cottage sits beautifully between a large front and rear gardens. The front Mediterranean-style garden is laid to shingle with a large decking area. Ideal to sit out and enjoy the sun. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a patio area. Ideal space to play and enjoy the summer sun. Pub: 50 yards. Shop: 800 yards.

Why we love this property: This property has been renovated to a really high standard with everything  carefully thought through by the homeowners. The real ‘wow’ factor the moment you walk through the door. Sea views from 4 bedroom windows. Truly a property like no other!

Are you a larger party looking for some additional space? Why not take a look at neighbouring property 2 Anchor Cottages. The two properties make for the perfect base for any large group of friends or family up to 16 guests.

Walberswick is a former fishing village just across the harbour at Southwold – you can take the small ferry boat from Southwold across (summer season only) or there is the footbridge to use. Walberswick has surrounding heath and marshland which are protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Walberswick is very popular with walkers, cyclists and families and is known for its annual crabbing competitions. Walberswick has attracted famous figures over the years with many famous celebrities maintaining homes in the village. The village has two pubs – The Anchor and The Bell Inn – the latter which inspired the creation of Adnams’ Ghost Ship Ale, a tearoom, art gallery and gift shop. There are some fantastic walks from Walberswick via the Suffolk Coast Path leading to the historical village of Dunwich. Other attractions nearby include the seaside town of Southwold, Blythburgh and RSPB Minsmere Reserve is just a short drive away.

We feel so fortunate to have stayed in your wonderful home for my birthday (30th!!) celebrations. A real home from home with such comfortable and beautiful decor. Thank you!!!The Arnold's and Co - 27th January 2020
1 Anchor Cottages is just perfect, both in terms of location and in quality. The house is stunning - perfect for a large family group, both adults and children. All bedrooms are spacious and lovely, with all bathrooms beautiful. The fact there are so many bathrooms is just great. The main open plan living room, comprising kitchen, television area and dining area worked so well for a group with young children and had such a warm and homely feel. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property. Ms Siobhan McCreesh - 15th January 2020
