Kyson is the larger of two second floor apartments at Tranmer House; it offers a light and homely space to enjoy a short break or longer stay. The apartment enjoys wonderful views across the Sutton Hoo estate, with open heath and woodland on one side and boats sailing on the River Deben on the other. Wilford, a smaller apartment also on the second floor and Deben View, the spacious first floor apartment with its own verandah also share these views and the fantastic location.
Perched high above the River Deben, the apartments of enjoy a shared grassed sitting area with views down towards the historic market town of Woodbridge. It was the mystical instinct of Tranmer House’s former owner Mrs Pretty that compelled her to investigate the mysterious mounds of Sutton Hoo in the 1930s – the archaeological dig revealed an Anglo-Saxon ship burial bedecked with glittering treasure, the richest ever to be found in Northern Europe. Discover this fascinating 7th century site for yourself: there are lots of easy strolls and longer walks mapped.

Kyson is part of Tranmer House, a converted private Edwardian residence. Tranmer House consists of 3 holiday apartments, staff accommodation, offices and the visitors’ centre. As such the building may be occupied by other parties at the same time. Being apartments, there may be some noise from other guests coming and going, although the property is sound proofed. Kyson is not a stand alone single holiday cottage.
At certain times of the year shooting on the Estate will take place on a Thursday when the property is closed to visitors and guests are asked to not walk around the estate. Guests can still get in and out of the property in their vehicles. There will be no shooting near the house so noise will be kept to a minimum.
The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.
