ABOUT THE AREA
The village of Bawdsey stands near the mouth of the river Deben approximately 9 miles south east of the market town of Woodbridge. The quiet and picturesque vil-lage is an escape 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 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 neighbouring village of Alderton (approx. 1 mile away) is well served by the village shop, public house (The Alderton Swan) & doctors surgery. Another popular place nearby to eat/drink is The Ramsholt Arms (approx. 4 miles away) which is situated on the estuary to the river Deben and offers local seafood with seating outside by the river. 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. The market town of Woodbridge is widely known for its beautiful historic buildings and wide range of amenities with a large selection of shops, pubs & restaurants plus two theatres, a leisure centre and a train station (journey time to London Liverpool Street approx. 1 hour 40 minutes with a connection via Ipswich).

DIRECTIONS
From the A12 at Woodbridge, take the exit signed Orford/Sutton Hoo onto the A1152/Woods Lane. Drive down the hill & at the traffic lights at the bottom of the hill; continue straight ahead signed A1152 Bawdsey, Orford, and Snape. Continue over the railway line passing The Wilford Bridge public house. At the roundabout, turn right (2nd exit) onto the B1083 signed Bawdsey/Hollesley. After a few hundred yards, note the entrance to Sutton Hoo on your right. Stay on the B1083 and after approximately 2 miles you will drive through Sutton village. Approximately 1 mile after Sutton village, approaching Shottisham, you will come to a T-junction. Turn right here & continue (still on the B1083) through Alderton village. Approximately 4 miles from the T-junction in Shottisham, you will see the village sign 'Bawdsey' Shortly after this, turn right into the recessed driveway to The Manor House Estate. At the end of the driveway turn left into the Manor Farm Estate Grove Barn is located in front of you on the left hand side.

AGENTS NOTE
The properties on The Manor House Estate are sold as holiday/second homes only and are subject to a planning instrument that they may be occupied all year except between 6th January and 17th February. In order to maintain the quality of the estate, the management company will make a non-profit service charge on an annual basis to the home owners. This service charge covers the maintenance of the communal ground, parkland, woodland areas, communal swimming pool, tennis court, roads and tracks etc. We understand from our vendor that the service charges for the forthcoming year is £1,190.28. Additionally, each homeowner will own 1 share in the management company. We are advised by our vendors that the annual service charge has only increased by inflation over the 13 years that they have owned the property and that there is now a sizeable sink fund built up for the replacement/repair of larger items, e.g. swimming pool heating system.
