About KysonAn elevated and spacious apartment for six surrounded by Anglo-Saxon history.
Kyson is a large three-bedroom 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 sweeping views over the burial mounds and the River Deben from the windows of this apartment. Built in 1910, Kyson is now light and airy with a hint of its former Edwardian elegance retained in the wooden floors and checkered-tiled bathroom.
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.
