Holiday Rental House
QUAYSIDE COTTAGE is a stylish detached one-bedroomed bungalow 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 THE BOATHOUSE (also see The Boathouse 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. There are three properties in the ground...QUAYSIDE COTTAGE is a stylish detached one-bedroomed bungalow sitting in the grounds of Quayside on the banks of the magnificent River Deben at Waldringfield.

There are three properties in the grounds of Quayside: two stylish detached holiday cottages and the main residence occupied by us, Ged and Donna Morgan and our son Stuart. Each property has its own parking area and bicycle storage within the grounds, with easy access via electric gate, and riverfront seating. Both cottages are lovingly cared for and finished to a high standard (past winner of 'Best Self-Catering Holiday of the Year' voted by East of England Tourism). Whichever you choose, enjoy: - Waterfront seating overlooking the stunning River Deben - Our own quay where you have access to fish and secure a small boat (or use ours - rowing boat provided) - Private car parking and bicycle store (bike hire available locally) - Wireless broadband connection The village also has much to offer...: - Beachfront pub dining (breakfast, lunch, dinner) - River cruises and sailing club - Arts and Crafts Studio (art lessons available) - Excellent 18-hole golf course - Endless coastal walks and cycle routes All set in a Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - a paradise for birdwatchers - fishermen - sailors - golfers - cyclists - walkers. Our cottages are fully equipped for a 'home from home' experience. We are here to help if needed. Sorry, but we do not cater for children and pets, and smoking indoors is not permitted.More

My husband and I needed a relaxing, quiet, and stress-free break, and we found it here for four days. The cottage felt like home as soon as we walked in, and the views of the river (and the walks just out the back gate along...More

The location is terrific, right on the river bank with an excellent pub just around the corner. It's a lovely little cottage. Donna Morgan, the owner, is very pleasant and made us fell very welcome. We'd definitely visit again!

About the neighbourhood
The market town of Woodbridge sits on the banks of the River Deben, once the only transport route by sailing barge to trade goods. Today's barges cruise the river for pleasure and are a sight to behold. The River Deben is one of the finest estuaries to shape this Suffolk coastline. Approximately 9 miles of navigable water and in parts up to half a mile wide. Quayside sits on the banks of the river, in the village of Waldringfield which is about mid way, on the west bank. 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 and beachfront pub dining (breakfast, lunch, dinner). We have an unusually high number of quality go...
