About KysonAn elegant Edwardian apartment surrounded by an 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 retains much of its Edwardian elegance, with wood-panelled walls, antique rugs, wooden floors and checkered-tiled bathroom.
Walk around the 7th-century burial grounds before heading into the Exhibition Hall. Here you can learn more about who was buried here and see the full-size reconstruction of the burial chamber, stunning replica treasures and original finds from one of the mounds, including a prince's sword.
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.
