ABOUT THE AREA
Bawdsey village stands near the mouth of the river Deben approximately 9 miles south east of the market town of Woodbridge. It is a quiet and picturesque village, away from the hustle and bustle of modern day living. Visitors are attracted to the area due to its proximity to the sea and the wonderful views across the Deben estuary towards Felixstowe Ferry. The village of Bawdsey comprises of approximately 500 homes and boasts Bawdsey CEVC Primary School, St Mary's Church, the village hall & recreation ground as well as The Boathouse Café, located at Bawdsey Quay.

The surrounding countryside is widely known for its network of cycle paths and walkways amongst the forest and heathland at the Bawdsey peninsula. A small boat carries foot passengers across from Bawdsey Quay to Felixstowe Ferry and is a real family favourite, especially for the purchase of freshly caught fish from the timber sheds. The famous Bawdsey Manor Estate (built circa 1886 by Sir Cuthbert Quilter) is an imposing building built in what is described as gothic, Flemish, Tudor and oriental style.

There are a vast number of nearby local attractions, including Orfordness National Trust nature reserve, Snape Maltings & the Sutton Hoo burial/treasure site.
