About the neighbourhood
In the centre of East Anglia, About an hour's drive away is Suffolk's Heritage Coast where you'll find the popular but un-commercial seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh. The appealing cities of Cambridge and Norwich, Suffolks 'Wool Villages' and Constable Country are all about an hour's drive away. Closer to home you will find Thetford Forest, Newmarket and just 20 minutes away the lively and well preserved Edwardian town of Bury St Edmunds.
Getting around
Use of a car is recommended as we are in Suffolk countryside. However, we are close to a bus route and pick-up from our nearest train station (Thurston) can also be arranged. There are several country walks nearby and we also have cycles to borrow upon request.
