Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Vela Art Gallery is a Grade II listed property located in a small town called Saxmundham, in the centre of coastal Suffolk.

We are an art gallery with a cosy coffee shop (with 2 wood burners), we have outside seating in the sunny courtyard, an art workshop and a large quirky holiday apartment above. We feel we can offer something for everyone who loves art and culture.
(Please note, the coffee shop is not yet open as is still being painted, but this won't cause disruption to your stay).

The space
The newly created apartment is spacious and quirky with a homely feel. It has multiple levels, wooden beams, and 16th century features...but all with a contemporary feel.

It is ideal for short breaks, longer holidays or even business/corporate stays.

We hope you will love the area and the apartment as much as we do.

Guest access
Access is through a gate at the side of the shop, through the outside cafe courtyard and up external stairs into the apartment.

Other things to note
Initially the Art Gallery and coffee shop will only be open a couple of days a week once we launch in Autumn 2020.
At present all building work is complete, only decorating is taking place (by ourselves) which is quiet and won't disrupt your stay.
During opening hours guests will get a 10% discount in the coffee shop (food and soft drinks only).
During opening hours guest cannot use the external courtyard unless as paying customers of the coffee shop. Outside of opening hours however, guests are welcome to use the courtyard to sit in the sun, as long as it is left as it was found, ready for the shop opening the next day. No litter, dog waste or personal items must be left in the courtyard at any time.
