Vela Art Gallery is a Grade II listed property located in a small town called Saxmundham, in the centre of Suffolk. We are an art gallery with a cosy coffee shop (incorporating 2 woodburners for winter months), we have outside seating in the sunny courtyard, an art workshop and a holiday apartment above. We feel we can offer something for everyone who loves art and culture. (Please note, the coffee shop is still being decorated and is not due to open until Autumn 2020). The newly created apartment is spacious and quirky with a homely feel. It has multiple levels, wooden beams, and 16th century features...but all with a contemporary feel. We hope you will love the area and the apartment as much as we do....Vela Art Gallery is a Grade II listed property located in a small town called Saxmundham, in the centre of Suffolk.

A lovely apartment with a distinctly cottage type feel. Everything has been provided to make our stay, for a family of four, as warm and welcoming as possible. It was spotlessly clean and had the added charm of oak beams. Saxmundham is a base to...More

About the neighbourhood
Saxmundham is a small historic market town close to the Suffolk Coast. It's located at the centre of Suffolk's Heritage Coast region. The high street has an eclectic mix of independent shops, cafes, takeaways and a pub. The town also has the regions only Waitrose supermarket! And on Wednesdays there is a small traditional market. There is easy access by rail and road to many of the nearby places to visit, providing an excellent base to explore the Suffolk Coast.
Getting around
A car is not an essential as the main train line from London is only a 5 minute walk from the apartment, and there are local buses that can take you to the local towns of Aldeburgh, Southwald, etc. Taxis are also available but we do recommend that you book them in advance. However a car does make travel a bit easier. All within an hour's drive of Saxmundham, there is beautiful heritage coastline, several nature reserves & areas of outstanding natural beauty, many historic sites, and the seaside resorts of Felixstowe, Aldeburgh, Southwold and Great Yarmouth.
