Martello Tower is perched on an unspoilt Suffolk beach in the sleepy hamlet of Shingle Street, and has panoramic views from the top rooms and balcony to Orford in the north and three other Martello Towers and the far-reaching coastline in the south.

The glittering sea curves around one side and marshes teeming with wildlife, including migrating birds and rare plant species, around the other. From the outside, it looks a little domineering – well it was built to keep the French navy at bay – but buoy is it full of nautical charm.

As soon as you step inside you’ll be greeted with chic furnishings, wood burners to keep you toasty in winter and magical views of what seems like an endless sea from the kitchen, huge living room area and balcony – the perfect spot for a seafood feast in summer.
