A short walk from the station, the river and the many shops, pubs and restaurants, the Malthouse is perfectly located to take full advantage of all Woodbridge has to offer.
The riverside area of the old Whisstocks boat yard and sheds is currently being
rejuvenated and developed to provide residential, commercial and educational premises,
as well as public spaces for visitors to sit and enjoy the beauty of
the Tide Mill and River Deben.
The main garden
South facing and laid to lawn with table and chairs for alfresco dining.
The Front Garden
The path leads to the front door with furniture on the patio for afternoon tea and sundowners.
Where we are
Right by Andy Seedhouse boat yard just off Quayside, with Top Floor Studios acting as a prompt to turn off the road. Use the Malthouse’s unique roof-line to guide you in.
Taken from the inside of the front door, this image shows the stairs up to the sitting room / kitchen and down to the bedrooms.
Split over three floors the Malthouse does have its fair share of stairs but each staircase is relatively short and the stairs aren’t too steep. Bannisters are there to aid stability.
It has everything you need to do your ablutions in comfort. WC, wash basin and a bath with electric shower.
Double Bedroom (Downstairs)
Snug, comfy and quiet. You’ll sleep well at The Malthouse
Twin Room (Downstairs)
Ample storage, comfy beds and plenty of natural light.
The Sitting Room
The window looks out over the quay and down the beautiful River Deben. Cosy up indoors and watch the world go by with a cuppa or a G&T – well you are on holiday!
Cook up a storm with the electric cooker or microwave. The slimline dishwasher makes cleaning up a breeze and there’s room in the fridge or supplies. Cooking and dining equipment provided.
The top bedroom
With views down the river, you’ll find this room in the roof hard to resist. Leave the others downstairs and indulge.
The imposing Shire Hall dominates Market Hill acting as the epicenter around which shops, cafes and restaurants gather. Woodbridge Museum on the left hand side as you pass Shire Hall and is well worth a visit – as is the nearby St Mary’s Church.
The Tide Mill Living Museum
Well worth a visit to see the inside of this iconic building. You can find more information on The Tide Mill website but it must be the most photographed, painted and adored building in Woodbridge – and it’s a two minute walk from The Malthouse.
Watch life pass you by down by the quay. Cafe, houseboats, dog walkers, families, artists – people watching paradise.
Shopping in Woodbridge
A wide range of boutiques, cafes and restaurants await you when you wander into town to explore. The characterful streets wind from riverside to the central Thoroughfare and up to Market Hill. Each areas has it’s own collection of shops, eateries and activities.
Events in Woodbridge
Woodbridge has many a superb event from markets to the annual regatta. This image is from the 2015 Woodbridge Shuck Shellfish Festival where food, drink, music and merriment engulfed the Tea Hut beside the river.
The annual regatta brings the river bank alive with people of all ages.
From carnivals to seasonal food markets, dog shows and live music aplenty, in Woodbridge there’s always something going on.
The River Deben
This enchanting river is bursting with wildlife. There is even a friendly seal who visits from time to time. Local groups arrange guided walks to admire the flora and fauna and there are often talks happening that give insight into the river’s history and wildlife. Sailing, canoeing and rowing are all available on the River Deben and those less active can while away the hours watching the river activity drifting by.
