Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

The Suffolk coast is renowned for its old-world charm, its uncrowded beaches, unspoilt towns and villages, wide-open skies and beautiful countryside. There is something for everyone at all times of year in this magical area.

Southwold

THE LOCALITY

Southwold

This elegant seaside town has sandy beaches which regularly win 'Blue Flag'awards. The town itself has many attractions including a Regency High Street, spacious greens, charming cottages. The lighthouse, the beach huts and the horsedrawn brewery dray are well-loved local features. The town is the home of Adnams brewery and there are many excellent pubs recommended in good pub guides. Much good local food, beer and wine can be bought in the area.

Golf, sailing, horse riding, tennis, crabbing and other sports are available in Southwold. There is an active fishing harbour slightly outside the town from whence a summer rowing ferry can be taken to Walberswick, making an excellent round trip walk or cycle ride.

Blythburgh

The majestic church of Blythburgh is the venue for some of the concerts of the Aldeburgh festival. It is well worth a visit and is floodlit at night. There is a shop/post office in the village and a good village pub with outside seating area and marvellous views.

There are many excellent walks and cycle rides in the locality.

Aldeburgh (13 miles)

The home of the composer Benjamin Britten, Aldeburgh is a popular seaside family resort with many working fishing boats pulled up on the shingle, fresh fish to be bought and, some say, the best fish and chips in the country.

Minsmere RSPB Bird Sanctuary

For many, this is the highlight of the region. It is a showcase of the RSPB, and is open every day. Bitterns, March Harriers, Avocets, Godwits and even an occasional Spoonbill can be seen.

The Sandlings and Dunwich Heath.

The Sandlings are an area of lowland heath with reed beds, mudflats, low crumbling cliffs, shingle beaches, peaceful woodlands, rough grazing and salt marshes. The flora and fauna are recognised as being of international importance. Dunwich Heath is an important National Trust Nature Reserve where nightjars are often heard.

Snape Maltings

The home of the world famous Aldeburgh Festival of Music, this is also a most beautiful site, with spectacular views over the reed beds and the River Alde.

Ipswich and Norwich are about 35 miles away

Other places of particular interest in the area include: . The Church-within-a-church at Covehithe. Working windmill at Thorpeness. Restored tidemill at Woodbridge. Orford and Framlingham Castles.

Shopping

There are good individual shops in Southwold and many interesting shops nearby. There are several farmshops and many roadside stalls selling fresh local produce.
