Southwold Cottages

SouthwoldThis very popular seaside town boasts a sandy beach and a traditional pier;  step over the bridge, or take the row boat ferry,  to Walberswick for that intimate and timeless village feel. Visit Britain's largest fresh water reedbed, RSPB Minsmere and Dunwich Heath for a great walk and stunning scenery

Southwold is perhaps the best known coastal town in the area. A popular resort for those who want to get away from city bussle and return to an England very little changed since the 1920s and '30s - lighthouse, pier, a sandy shore and beach huts. And much more besides - fishing huts and fresh fish, fine food and excellent restaurants, bookshops, galleries and of course good Adnams beer.

Walk south along the seafront to the open marshes and the entrance to the River Blyth. From here one can look down this glorious little estuary towards the ‘cathedral of the marshes’, Blythburgh church, and the beautiful Blyth valley.

Westleton is a delightful rural village not far from Southwold, with a large village green, two excellent pubs, open heathland and RSPB Minsmere just a mile or so beyond.

Westward up the valley you come to Bramfield with its Gothic House and the lovely crinkle-crankle wall outside the thatched church, which unusually has a detached round tower. A few yards from the church is the Queen’s Head.

The charming little village of Holton has a delightful main street, white-timbered fan-tailed windmill at the lower end and the round towered church at the top. A lazy stream runs beside the quiet street with its attractive old houses, village pub and the delightful well-kept green. The attractive market town of Halesworth is just over a mile away. 

Wenhaston has five commons and is one of the larger villages in the area and dates back to Roman times! The fine, small church houses the famous medieval 'Doom' painting. 
Pop down to the Low House at Laxfield below the churchyard. Here you can enjoy good pub food, excellent company and one of the few original tap rooms in the County.  A lovely village to stay in and an ideal base for both the coast and rural Suffolk. Near at hand is Heveningham with its great Palladian Hall. The fantastic Capability Brown serpentine lake and landscaped park lovingly restored in recent years.
