Destination guide

Woodbridge cottages offer access to iconic historic sites

You'll find Woodbridge about 8 miles inland from the coast along the River Deben. Woodbridge is an ideal location for history buffs looking for Suffolk holiday cottages to rent, considering its proximity to several fascinating historical sites. One such attraction is Sutton Hoo, the site of a former Saxon ship burial, and the visitor centre provides much information about the discovery. Another impressive location is the Woodbridge Tide Mill, still grinding flour today with its iconic water wheel at the site that has hosted a mill since 1170. Perhaps the most engaging thing about Woodbridge is the River Deben itself. A stroll along its banks or an evening cruise is sure to be an enjoyable way to spend your time.
