Woodbridge is a stunning East Anglian town with a rich history and heritage dating back to the Neolithic Age. The town’s history has often been shaped by its position on the river Deben and the Woodbridge Tide Mill is one of the oldest working tide mills in the UK, having ground grain to produce flour and animal feed for over 800 years. The town also plays host to the annual Woodbridge Regatta & Riverside Fair, which promises family fun, entertainment, live music, crabbing competitions and more. Properties range from more modern flats and apartments to secluded bungalows and a variety of listed properties.
While our primary aim is to make sure all of our clients get a detailed and transparent report it is also a important they understand the report itself. We make a point of discussing each and every report with each and every client in order to make sure they understand the implications of issues raised but also the evidence for them and what they may mean to the purchase and future costs. This level of service is not something all larger firms are able to provide.
