About Mrs Trudie Willis

Mrs Willis the owner, lives next door to Tresco and her ten acre butterfly and wildlife gardens that have been created over 40 years and have appeared nationally from time to time. She has recently purchased Tresco and updated it to a high standard with the help of a friend who is a professional interior and furnishing designer.

Mrs Trudie Willis purchased this house in 2015

Why Mrs Trudie Willis chose Aldeburgh

Tresco came on the market and my South African family and I fell in love with it immediately because of the warm feeling the house emits , and is now their holiday home too, so the house is not just a holiday home but a much loved family house also

What makes this house unique

Bird reserve, views of Thorpeness house in the clouds , sea views and a peace not found elsewhere in Aldeburgh, yet only a five minute drive to the heart of this lovely town with all its history.

The house stands in large gardens and is set in a quiet positon well back from the Aldeburgh to Leiston Road.

Spacious, comfortable house.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and comfortable with everything we needed and more. The garden is large and peaceful. Although the house is by a road it's set a long way back so the house and garden are very quiet. The owner was very friendly and helpful and her garden/nature reserve are fabulous.

We had a great week staying at Tresco & Trudie couldn't do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay including asking if we required anything providing on arrival which to our surprise she had also baked us a beautiful cake. The house was as the description & had everything we needed to feel at home & the garden was so private we enjoyed many an evening relaxing there. My husband is an avid walker and he loved the surrounding areas and nature reserve on our doorstep. Can recommend the walk to Thorpeness & the charming coastal village of Aldeburgh.

So lucky to find this place

  • 5 of 5

I was so lucky to be the first person to rent this house after it had been completely refurbished and fitted out tastefully by the very welcoming owner who lives next door. It has extensive gardens and plenty of car parking next to the house at the end of the drive. My favourite room is the ground floor living room with picture windows looking out over the terrace and back garden towards the setting sun. I stayed in the house on my own but would not hesitate to bring my family here as it is ideal for children and adults alike.
