Highsteppers is a first and second floor apartment within a Georgian Grade II listed building named "Blythview" which once served as a workhouse. Blythview is approached by an impressive driveway flanked by trees and, as the name suggests, has spectacular views over the Blyth Valley.

Why Highsteppers? It was the name of our first house when we got married back in 1967 - named after a house we aspired to at the time but couldn't afford.  We have very fond memories of it.  It seemed to fit the apartment as it's on a hill and you have to go up some steps! 

The first floor has the living room with two sofas in the sitting area, a dining table with seating
for six in the wooden floored dining area, and kitchen with a breakfast table and chairs for four.

Surrounded by open countryside, Highsteppers lies in a tranquil setting, with the Suffolk Heritage Coast and the towns of Southwold and Walberswick just 10 minutes drive away, providing an ideal location for families, walkers and bird watchers.

Heated indoor swimming pool

Highsteppers apartment is situated just a few minutes' drive from the pretty unspoilt village of Blythburgh, with its famous 13th century church, and has the added bonus of a shared indoor heated swimming pool (14m x 4m, depth 1.2m) and a small gym within the grounds of Blythview.

A shop and pub are just three quarters of a mile away. Minsmere RSPB Bird Reserve, the villages Dunwich and Snape, and the towns of Aldeburgh and Framlingham are all within a half hour drive, and there are many other pretty, sleepy Suffolk villages nearby.

Highsteppers may be booked along with Red Lodge Barn, our nearby 19th Century Suffolk brick barn, which can accommodate six people. It's a spacious self-contained 2-bedroom holiday cottage that stands in an acre of grounds overlooking Middleton Moor.
