About WilfordA 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.
