About WilfordA cosy two-bedroom apartment in Tranmer House, set in 245 acres of fascinating history.
Wilford is a second-floor apartment based in Tranmer House, on the Sutton Hoo estate. Inside it still has an elegant Edwardian interior but with a modern twist. It was here that the famous archaeological dig was ordered during the 1930s, in which an Anglo-Saxon ship was discovered. You can see some of the royal treasures uncovered on display in the Exhibition Hall beside the King’s River café, which is just a short stretch away.
You’ll be able to enjoy walks on the open heath and woodland of the estate and down to the River Deben. You can also learn more about the history of the estate at the burial grounds and Exhibition Hall.
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.
