“I've just remembered to write this review from our time here back in May this year (sorry Anna!) - we absolutely loved our time in Walberswick - the house was beautiful and in the best spot right in the centre of the beautiful village, within seconds of the beach, pub(s) and lovely little shops. The house itself was perfect - beautifully decorated, spotless and with everything we could possible need to entertain ourselves - and with a great garden to enjoy as well. The weather was fantastic and we spent hours just pottering around the estuary and beach - crabbing, cycling, walking or catching the ferry across to Southwold for dinner and/or an ice cream. Thank you Anna for spoiling us - we had an amazing time and would love to go back next year!”
Where is it?
Walberswick, a small, secluded village on the East Anglian coast, famed for attracting the great and the good from the arts, media and film. See: https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2004/aug/29/film.filmnews
The beach has been voted as one of the top 10 British beaches by The Daily Telegraph, Conde Nast Traveller, Daily Mail and is a three minute walk away, as are numerous green and leafy paths to walk or cycle along.
Crabbing is enormously popular with families and Walberswick was the host of British Open Crabbing Championship from 1981 to 2010, which saw a peak in attendance in 2009 of 1252 entrants.
The neighbouring resort town of Southwold is 1.5 miles away by foot or by bicycle.
Three stunning Grade I listed medieval churches are within easy reach of the village: The Cathedral of the Marshes in Blythbugh, St Andrew’s in Walberswick and St Edmund’s in Southwold, which can be reached by taking one of the UK’s last remaining rowing boat ferries that has crossed the River Blyth to Southwold since 1236.
