The Suffolk Heritage Coast includes Dunwich Heath, Walberswick and Southwold to the north. Aldeburgh, Snape, Orford and Woodbridge to the South.
Southwold is a quintessentially English seaside town with a promenade and a pier. The pier has some very unusual amusements that will make you smile. The picturesque harbour is always full of activity and fresh fish is for sale daily. Don’t forget to try a pint of Adnams Ale made at the famous Adnams brewery in Southwold
The pretty seaside town of Aldeburgh also has a lot to offer. Aldeburgh can be reached via Thorpness (another Suffolk “speciality”) and take a look at Maggie Hamblings controversial sculpture just outside the town. Well known for its Fish and Chips Aldeburgh also has an array of delightful shops restaurants and a cinema. Aldeburgh was the home of Benjamin Brittain the musician. Snape Maltings Concert Hall world renowned for its musical excellence is just a few miles away. A pleasant hour or two can be spent amongst the galleries and shops on site or why not take a walk along the banks of the river estuary.
Other places of note are at the National Trust Sutton Hoo and the English Heritage castles at Orford and inland at Framlingham. Just 5 miles from the site is the RSPB site at Minsmere which is a bird watchers paradise. Minsmere has featured on BBC Springwatch.
There is so much to see and do one visit will not be enough and as is often the case our guests return again and again to enjoy the magic of Suffolk.
We look forward to welcoming you too.
