The East Anglia region
Situated by a track onto Wenhaston Blackheath, the house is close to the market town of Halesworth and to the beaches of Walberswick and Southwold. It is close to Dunwich, Dunwich Heath, the RSPB Minsmere Bird Reserve, Orford and Framlingham Castles and Snape Maltings (home of the Aldeburgh Festival).
For a day in town, the cathedral city of Norwich and county town of Ipswich are within easy driving distance.
Well-placed in a spectacular rural position, the house is easily reached using the main A14 / A12 road routes into Suffolk.
There are also excellent public transport links from Halesworth with the East Suffolk Line which runs rail services to Lowestoft, Ipswich, Norwich and London and regular bus services to Aldeburgh, Southwold and Norwich.
This is an ideal location for walkers, birdwatchers and beach lovers.
Southwold is a charming north Suffolk seaside town on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. Almost an island, being bounded by the North Sea to the East, by the River Blyth and Southwold harbour to the South-West and by Buss Creek to the North, there is just the one road in to and out of Southwold.
The town offers much of interest, but it is the sea and Southwold's links with it that make this a wonderful destination at any time of the year. With its locally brewed real ales, local fish and chips, working lighthouse, colourful beach huts, award-winning pier, busy harbour, cliff top cannon and of course the fantastic sand and shingle beach, Southwold is a quintessentially English resort town.
