Kyson Apartment - National Trust Sutton Hoo

An elevated and spacious apartment for six surrounded by Anglo-Saxon history in Tranmer House at National Trust Sutton Hoo. 

Kyson is a large three-bedroom apartment based in Tranmer House, a place of fascinating history. It was here that its former owner, Edith Pretty, ordered the famous Sutton Hoo archaeological dig in which an Anglo-Saxon ship was discovered. You'll have sweeping views over the burial mounds and the River Deben from the windows of this apartment. Built in 1910, Kyson is now light and airy with a hint of its former Edwardian elegance retained in the wooden floors and checkered-tiled bathroom.

The apartment is comprised of a hallway, sitting room with gas fire, kitchen/dining room, three bedrooms (5' double, 6' double which can be a twin on request and 1 twin) and bathroom with attachment over bath. Shower room (cubicle with electric shower) with basin and lavatory at the end of the hall, adjacent and on the same level as the three bedrooms. There are four steps down to the landing leading to all three bedrooms.

Walk around the 7th-century burial grounds before heading into the Exhibition Hall. Here you can learn more about who was buried here and see the full-size reconstruction of the burial chamber, stunning replica treasures and original finds from one of the mounds, including a prince's sword.

Beyond the Sutton Hoo estate, lies the beautiful Deben Peninsula home of Bawdsey Radar and the Suffolk Punch Trust. Rendlesham Forest is just a 15-minute drive, the Suffolk coast is close-by, with Orford Ness National Nature Reserve a 20-minute drive away. On this wild and remote shingle spit, you'll discover an abundance of wildlife and fascinating 20th-century military history.

All guests enjoy free access to any National Trust property for the duration of their stay in one of their holiday cottages.
