We are just five minutes from the A12 which gives you access to some wonderful historic venues and sites of special interest. The charming market town of Woodbridge and famous Anglo-Saxon burial ground at Sutton Hoo are both just two miles away.
The A12 gives you easy access North to Thorpeness, Aldeburgh, Dunwich, and Southwold and the other well-known towns along Suffolk’s unspoilt heritage coastline. We also recommend that you head South down the A12 to visit the iconic Flatford Mill so beautifully painted by Constable and visit the area that inspired this our most famous British painter.
We are on the edge of some 150 square miles of extraordinary landscape - an area of outstanding natural beauty, including lowland coastal scenery, wildlife-rich wetlands and the historic Sandlings heaths.
