The cottage is ideally situated being very accessible to the coast with Aldeburgh, Dunwich, Minsmere, Walberswick, Thorpeness and Southwold all within 10-20 minutes drive. There are sandy beaches at Southwold and Walberswick and further north at Lowestoft and Kessingland. All are ideal for relaxing or walking and you can generally find good eating close by.

There is plenty of on and off road cycling terrain on our doorstep and cycles are available for hire at Darsham (2 miles) - www.bywaysbicycles.co.uk.

There is also a good public swimming pool at nearby Leiston and Woodbridge for those too faint hearted to try the sea, and plenty of opportunities to sail on the Ald, Deben or Blyth - worth checking out before arrival. For tennis enthusiasts there are quality public courts just outside Saxmundham (2miles).
