Roof Tree is a fantastic family holiday home just 10 minutes from the beach in the pretty coastal village of Walberswick. This contemporary house has a Scandinavian style with stripped pine floorboards, strong feature colours, vintage furniture and stylish simplicity.
A feature of the house is a light and spacious open plan kitchen/dining/living area with a wall of double-glazed glass and doors opening out on to the veranda and garden. This area accommodates a dining room table, sofa and two additional chairs, a wood-burning stove and a hand-built kitchen. There is also an island unit with eight stools, creating a further eating area and a great place to socialise at any time of the day. Another outstanding feature is the zinc worktop which was chosen to recreate the atmosphere of a Parisian bar. A further door leads to the garden and utility area. The ground-floor wet room is situated off the kitchen.
An additional sitting room at the front of the house is furnished with vintage armchairs, sofa, cosy wood burner and a flat screen Digital TV and DVD player.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms (one with ensuite shower room), a further bedroom with adult sized bunk beds and a spacious family bathroom.
At the front of the holiday cottage, the gravel parking area is small but will accommodate two medium-sized cars. The large garden to the rear is private and enclosed by walls with many matures trees and shrubs, ideal if you choose to bring your dog with you on holiday.

We loved Walberswick and was very happy with Roof Tree. Roof Tree is a beautiful spacious and bright house in the centre of Walberswick. Two large family rooms offered all the space needed for 8 people and a dog, with good size bedrooms and wet rooms. The kitchen area is very well designed with all the new appliances and the property has a lovely garden and patio. It is perfectly positioned for easy access to the beach and ferry. There are lots of pubs and pretty gift shops as well as a lovely green with a play area.Mr and Mrs Fensome - 3rd August 2018
We had a fabulous time and the house was perfect for our family group of three generations. Such a wonderful week in Walberswick. The house is perfectly located near the sea and amenities. Roof Tree is very spacious and the open plan kitchen was perfect for our large family group. We hope to return sometime!Helen Underwood - 27th July 2018
