The East Anglia region

East Anglia is a lovely place to visit. There's so much to do; award winning beaches, the broads, parks and country houses to visit. Camps Heath is at the bottom of the Waveney Valley and as a result, can be very warm in the summer. There are fantastic walks along river banks and public footpaths, many picturesque coastal villages to visit such as Southwold, Dunwich and Walberswick.

Oulton Broad

The Barn at Dairy Farm is situated on the edge of Oulton Marsh, managed by Suffolk Wildlife Trust. The views from the barn over the nature reserve are simply breath taking, with the river Waveney and the broads only a short walk away.

Camps Heath is less than a five-minute drive from Oulton Broad. Here you will find shops, a post office, two parks, cafes, restaurants and pubs. If you like river life, there are river boat trips along the Broads and River Waveney, or you can watch speed boat racing on a Thu eve during the summer. For a bit of nightlife, you could enjoy a pint at one of numerous licensed bars and pubs, or a glass of wine at the local winebar. Please let us know if you need recommendations for the best places to eat and drink in the area.
