The Hut, Walberswick

The Hut is a unique single storey cottage situated in a peaceful location hidden behind the Village Green with fantastic views across the marshes to Southwold harbour. This 1960's 'gem' with many of the original features was completely refurbished in 2020 with a new bathroom, kitchen and double glazing throughout as well as a woodburning stove and electric radiators. The kitchen is simple with a baby belling cooker and microwave and washing machine. In addition, a fabulous adjoining annexe has been built with a double bedroom lined in beech plywood with a big picture window with a separate shower room. There is a lovely large garden for relaxing in too! Available summer 2022.

Guest reviews

  • We had a lovely time in the Hut last week, thank you. And we were so lucky with the weather! We all feel quite sad to be back home. The house is great, a very clever design making the most of the site and its views. And it feels like a real home (some lovely pictures) not just a rented place. We also enjoyed sitting in the garden watching the changing scene. The beds are very comfortable. The arrangement was particularly suitable for us because our 22 year old son could have privacy whenever he wanted it in the annex. LW September 2021

  • “we have had so much fun staying here. We have been on lots of beautiful walks and played on the beach. We are so sad to leave The Hut but we hope to come again soon”. Nell, aged 9, May 2021

  • “From inside to outside, its slanty lines and Scandi decor provide the perfect views and refuge” Miranda, May 2021

  • “what an incredible respite these days have been for us. Not only is the setting idyllic but it has such love and care packed into every corner” Molly, May 2021

  • Even the cupboards are cool, we loved every moment of the chiced-up Hut. It is  so brilliantly done and pleasingly fits together at every turn” Charlotte, September 2020

    "We saw more wildlife in the garden here than at Minsmere. The deer visited and the owl briefly. Such a beautiful setting watching from the garden as the sun goes down" AH 2020
