About this listing
The ultimate in private and luxurious B&B, weekly or holiday rental: Here you will find your own little house, your own front door – and inside, everything you need. Ten minutes’ walk from the heart of Woodbridge and the beautiful River Deben.
The Studio at Deben House is a stylish, newly-decorated little house which is all your own for the duration of your stay. Downstairs is a 5ft double bed, leather sofa, TV on a moveable wall bracket and the bathroom. The kitchen area is equipped with kettle, toaster, microwave and full-size fridge with all the ingredients for a wholesome, continental breakfast. The bread normally comes from Woodbridge's award-winning artisan baker. Please note that at weekends, we do not take one night bookings for fewer than three people. The exception to this is if you are booking less than a week ahead.
Cot hire is £10 per night.
Please contact us for special rates on long-term accommodation.
You have your own front door and your own key. Park your car immediately outside and come and go as you please.
Interaction with Guests
Apart from a warm welcome, we find that most guests like to be left alone (this is not one of those establishments where the landlady hovers over your breakfast table with endless gossip and questions). Although, of course, if you need anything, we are only a few steps away in the main house.
Deben House is ten minutes' walk from the heart of Woodbridge with its unique independent cinema, wide range of restaurants and pubs. Just turn right out of our drive and take the left fork down Cumberland Street. At the cross roads you can go straight on into Thoroughfare and the bigger shops or turn left to Market Hill.
The Station and the Riverside restaurant and cinema are straight down the hill (don't take the Cumberland Street fork).
The beautiful River Deben is even closer: Right out of the drive, right again into Cherry Tree Road and diagonally to your left across the grass to the level crossing by the tennis courts.
Sutton Hoo, the National Trust maintained Anglo-Saxon burial site, is ten minutes' drive on the other side of the river. Ipswich is 20 minutes, Snape Maltings, 20, and Aldeburgh half an hour. Further afield, Southwold and Bury St Edmunds are about 50 minutes drive.
Woodbridge railway station is ten minutes walk away (straight down the hill). The bus station only a little further.

Other Things to Note
Satnav: IP12 4BS: 29, Ipswich Road, Woodbridge
Coming into Woodbridge from the A12 on you will find yourself on Ipswich Road (B1438). The Duke of York pub will be on your left, the Ford garage on your right. Look for Warren Hill Road on your left and ten yards further on, a sign announcing Notcutts Garden Centre. IMMEDIATELY opposite this sign, you will find our drive on the right between two brick gateposts. Go to the end of the drive. There you will see a white house in front of you.
As you come up to the house, you will see the studio to your left. Please park in front of it.
Close by you will see our front door.
If you find the house is called Deben Vane or Deben Haugh, you need to go back to the road and up the hill to the next drive.
Hot Water: The immersion heater is set for mornings and evenings. If you need more there is an override switch on the wall next to the controls.
The timer switch for the towel rail is outside the bathroom for safety reasons - you will find it next to the controls for the room heater.
Outside Light: This comes on automatically at dusk. The switch is inside the front door.
Towels are supplied. The iron is in the kitchen cupboard, the ironing board next the immersion heater. In the cupboard with the iron you will find hot water bottles and a basket of useful items you may need.
Extra seating: Please feel free to move and extend the table if you wish. If you need more seating the bedside tables double as stools.

The Studio is not suitable for smokers. That is to say you will not be permitted to smoke in the building or outside on our property. In fact if you are a smoker, then for the benefit of the guests who will come after you, we would rather you didn't book in the first place.
We regret that we cannot accommodate pets.
