About Wilford

A two-bedroom apartment in Tramner House, a place of fascinating history.

Wilford is a second-floor apartment based in Tramner House, on the Sutton Hoo estate. It was here that the famous archaeological dig was ordered, in which an Anglo-Saxon ship was discovered. Inside reveals an elegant Edwardian interior with period furnishings and spacious rooms. 

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.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
