Once in the car the east coast is within 10 miles with forest,heathland and beech walks also lovely coastal towns to explore.
Southwold boasts a fun pier and the Adnams brewery making it a must see and the more traditional seaside village of Walbeswick only a hop over the river in the small row boat ferry.
