Places to Visit

Bungay
The little market town of Bungay is about 2 miles away from this quiet and peaceful farmhouse where all sorts of delights can be found such as second hand books, antiques and galleries - even a real pawn broker. The town is proud of it's ancient castle built by Hugh Bigod in the 12th century to protect the town which is embraced by the River Waveney. Boats and canoes can be hired for river trips and there are many interesting walks along its banks. If you are interested in antiques, pay a visit to Matthew Higham Antiques, only a hundred yards away from us!


Norwich
Norwich is a magnificent walled city. The cathedral, set in it's own close has 1200 carved stone bosses illustrating the entire bible story in the roof of the cloisters. The Norwich school is set in the cathedral grounds and was attended by Lord Nelson. His statue now stands facing his former school room.
The city has a delightful jumble of medieval streets and lanes with attractive half timbered houses. The castle towers over the city and now houses a museum acclaimed as one of the best in Britain. Norwich was voted one of the top ten shopping destinations with a wide choice of individual small shops, full of local character alongside the larger departmental chain stores. Norwich also has one of the largest and most colourful markets in the country and is open 6 days a week.

Southwold and the Heritage Coast
Southwold and other local towns are renowned for their unique character, a step back in time with colourful beach huts, a superb pier and unusual shopping and eating opportunities. The whole of the north Suffolk coast has been awarded heritage status, and, where the gorse heaths meet sandy beaches, you will find nature reserves with superb walking opportunities
