New! Crestholme, Stylish seaside family home sleeps 6/8 in unique Walberswick location

With stunning views to Southwold harbour and beyond, Crestholme is a  stylishly refurbished family holiday home with large garden sleeps 6 (with a  sofa bed option to sleep 8). Tucked away in quiet location  just a minute  from the village green and five minutes walk to the sea.  

Ideal  for those wishing to get away from it all, yet an easy walk to the two village pubs and restaurants, sandy beach and much more.

Crestholme offers spacious comfortable accommodation for a family or three couples.  Large open plan kitchen/dining room with great views over the marsh to Southwold. More great views to the harbour and beyond from two updstairs bedrooms. Note the stairs are steep and so we regret we cannot take children aged under 4 years old.

You can walk, cycle or take the  short ferry ride and be in Southwold in a few minutes, with its many attractions like the Pier, Adnams brewery, independent foodie shops and  more.  Book online now or phone Trish on 01502478078 for more details.


Recent review:

We stayed at Crestholme in Walberswick and as regulars to Walberswick we have stayed at a number of different properties over the years and we were not disappointed by Crestholme. Excellent location close to everything, amazing views and the house is well equipped for everything you need for a family of 4. Would highly recommend. MF May 2023

Local Area

Pub: There is the Anchor and the Bell Hotel, in the village, for Adnams ales and much more. Both receive good foodie reviews. Sole Bay Fish Company , Le Roc and the Harbour Inn are just across the river, booking recommended. Plenty more cafes and restaurants in Southwold or just along the coast that you can easily drive, walk or bike to..Dunwich, Blythburgh, Westleton etc.

Shop: The Co-op is the village general store, and Black Dog Deli serves delicious home made food and stocks locally sourced coffee, baked goods and usual deli goods. More shops and a cafe situated on the village green.

Beach: Easy walk to Walberswick's sandy beach or to Southwold beach via the Bailey bridge or local ferry. Stretches of sand and shingle, sand dunes and further walks along the beach to Dunwich or Covehithe.

Other Local Attractions:

The quirky seaside town of Southwold with its traditional pier is an easy walk or cycle ride away, across the Bailey Bridge or along the river wall beside the Blyth where you can watch yachts and fishing boats. A special treat is catching crabs from Wally's bridge at Walberswick Harbour and the 'lost city' of Dunwich is a short drive away or walk along the beach, where you can visit the Dunwich Museum near the Ship Inn or explore forest walks and relax at the famous fish and chip shop on the beach. 

Aldeburgh with its interesting array of local shops (more famous fish and chips) and hostelries, Thorpeness (the UK's first holiday village with its 60 acre boating Meare and quaint architecture), Orford and the internationally renowned Snape Maltings Concert Hall, galleries,  shops, cafe and walks beside the river (canoeing at Iken) are an easy half an hour's drive away.

RSPB Minsmere Reserve is well known for its avocets, marsh harriers and bitterns. 
The Eel's Foot pub at Eastbridge is a good starting point for a circular walk to Dunwich Heath tea room, the RSPB reserve and across the marshes to visit the stained glass installation in the ruins of the monastery. The National Trust properties in the area include Dunwich Heath and Sutton Hoo, featured in the film 'The Dig' and English Heritage's Orford Castle (wonderful views from the battlements) and Framlingham Castle are well worth a visit.

There are numerous footpaths for dogwalkers too.. and cycle paths, and golf, clay pigeon shooting and horse riding are all available locally.
