About Deben ViewA period apartment with a wooden verandah, surrounded by Anglo-Saxon history.
Deben View is an elegant first-floor apartment based in Tranmer House, a place of fascinating history. It was here that its former owner, Edith Pretty, ordered the famous Sutton Hoo archaeological dig in which an Anglo-Saxon ship was discovered. You’ll have views across the fascinating land and beyond to the River Deben from its wooden verandah. And if you have a soft spot for interiors, you’ll appreciate its original features, including the period wood panelling in the living area.
Walk around the 7th-century Royal Burial Ground before heading into the High Hall exhibition. Here, you can discover more about life in Anglo-Saxon England and who we think was buried here alongside high quality replica treasures and original Anglo-Saxon objects. The ground floor of Tranmer House is open as well. Here you can find out about the archaeological investigations which have taken place at Sutton Hoo and the people behind them
Beyond the Sutton Hoo estate, Rendlesham Forest is just a 15-minute drive from here. The Suffolk coast is also close, with Orford Ness National Nature Reserve a 20-minute drive. On this wild and remote shingle spit, you’ll discover an abundance of wildlife and fascinating 20th-century military history.
