Bawdsey Cottages

Located 7.5 miles southeast of Woodbridge on the Deben Peninsula lies the village of Bawsdey.  The village itself is charmingly small, with around 200 houses, a village hall, St Mary The Virgin church, a mobile grocer who visits every Thursday,  and a market on 3rd Saturday of every month. A cottage holiday here is a true taste of Suffolk village life! A short distance from the main village, along Ferry Road you’ll come to Bawdsey Quay where you’ll find breathtaking views across the Deben estuary, a small stretch of sandy beach and the delightful Boathouse Cafe.  From here you can get a ferry across the River Deben to the small fishing hamlet of Felixstowe Ferry and beyond.

The village of Bawsdey was originally an ‘Estate village’ for the workers of the Quilter Family of the nearby and very impressive Bawdsey Manor, which was built in 1886.   The Quilter family resided here until 1936 when the manor became a VERY significant RAF base - RAF Bawdsey was the very first operational radar station in the world.  This stretch of coastline was a prime target for during World War II and the Martello Towers, machine gun emplacements and other defences in this area, keep that history alive.  You can find out more at the Bawdsey Radar Museum, which is a fascinating visit.
