Join the team at Bawdsey Manor

Just a step away from beautiful beaches, spectacular views and over 140 acres of open grounds. Perched dramatically on the Suffolk coast, this stunning manor house is steeped in history, having previously been a RAF base and the first fully-operational radar station in the world. Today this centre enjoys access to private beaches and coastal walks, a local café and ferry to Felixstowe just outside the gates, as well as excellent on-site amenities including gym and sports courts.

Beyond the captivating scenery, it’s the people at Bawdsey who make it an extraordinary place to be! This close-knit community bring energy and creativity to everything they do, and have fostered a supportive and welcoming environment.
