airbnb Ipswich
| 8 min read

Ipswich is a non-metropolitan district that remains a town but is nowhere far from having the cleanest surroundings and culturally rich sites. Known as the county-town of Suffolk, it’s also one of the oldest towns in the UK, with a legacy that spans more than 1,500 years. It’s no wonder why you’ll find many historic monuments and attractions everywhere you look.

Aside from significant landmarks, you will also not want to miss their famous port, which played a crucial role in England’s history. Some famous artists lived in Ipswich, which is why the town can consistently and successfully hold art and music festivals yearly in its many galleries and theaters. You’ll find a ton of great things to do while in town, especially during the festive season.

Events to lookout for:

  • Thomas Wolsey 550, until September 30, 2024: Celebrate the life and legacy of one of Ipswich's most important figures with art exhibits, walking tours, and an upcoming Tudor-themed Christmas event.
  • Dick Whittington and His Cat, until January 20, 2024: Watch the titular protagonists make their way to stardom as they deal with crazy antics, funny moments, and spectacular song numbers at New Wolsey Theatre.
  • Animals in the Art Gallery, until April 14, 2024: This free exhibit showcases artistic depictions of British wildlife in its many forms - a top choice for animal lovers everywhere.

If you’re an artist or just a curious traveler, pack your bags and head on to Ipswich. You plan your itinerary while we help you with your accommodation! Search nowhere else and check out our list of top Airbnbs in Ipswich, Great Britain.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 14, 2024.

1. Newly refurbished stable-turned-vacation home (from USD 100)

Located a few walks from Ipswich’s town center, this accommodation sees an old farm stable turn into a modern, light, and homey vacation rental. Having been used for farm work and other various purposes, such as an art studio for one of the town’s local artists, its latest reincarnation is an idyllic retreat spot for guests who wish to receive the best of both worlds - the countryside and the vibrant town life.

It comes with its own private garden, which has been furnished with furnitures to lounge on during the daytime. The bedroom on the ground floor has two twin mattresses that can swiftly link up into a double bed, while the upper mezzanine offers lovely views of the surroundings at sunset. To get across other places beyond Ipswich, you can easily reach the Derby Road train station a few blocks down from here.

Recommendations from the host, Jude:

  • The Fat Cat Freemouse, located just close by offers a great range of ales, beers, and other alcoholic drinks.
  • The Suffolk Coast and Heaths, a designated AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), can be reached eastward. The Coast and Heaths' organizers have put up a comprehensive walking guide, which will come in handy as you make the most out of the protected area.

The host ensures that the space is supplied with goods, necessities, and nice touches—so much so that a little instruction book was made for guests to easily navigate through the appliances such as the digital fireplace and remote.

5. Jenny's home space in Suffolk, UK (from USD 33)

A home sweet home packed with everything you need is how we will describe this place. It is literally and figuratively a home from the structure, the interiors, the design, and the ambience it gives. It is a semi-detached house situated in a quiet neighborhood.

There are two bedrooms that can fit up to four people, a living room, and a separate bath and toilet. The house is shared with the host and her son. You’ll have access to your designated room/s, and will share the dining room, kitchen, lounge, and back garden with the host.

The garden is a perfect place to relax in if you like to have a country feel as you sip your coffee or take your breakfast on the patio table. The host is flexible in terms of check-in and check-out times, and you can reach her anytime through mobile and she works from home.

More information from the host, Jennifer:

  • Ipswich's town center is located a bit further from the property. It may take around 30 to 40 minutes to walk from here.
  • For alternate options, the local taxi is available to take you there. The fare usually costs around 6 GBP (7.59 USD).

6. Medieval and spacious apartment (from USD 157)

Restored in 2007, this two-bedroom apartment has a rich historical background. It was built in the 15th century and now features beautifully preserved architecture. Hence the description, medieval apartment. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a large sitting room.

There is plenty of space to move around the house. All corners are clean and tidy, organized, and functional. The entire apartment occupies the first and second stories of the Curson Lodge building. You can rent and privately move around the whole property. Food is available in the fridge because the hosts also live in the house from time to time.

More information from the host, Mary:

  • The Curson Lodge structure has seen a ton of uses throughout its long-standing history. Aside from being an inn, it may have also been used as a merchant's house in the past.
  • Curson Lodge has deep connections to Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, among Ipswich's most significant figures. It was where he spent much of his childhood, and also where he planned to live out his retirement in later years.
