Things to do
Golf, Sailing, birdwatching, walking or just plain relaxing, leisurely activities may include interesting sub 30 minute walks to Thorpeness or perhaps the Martello tower on the beach, boat trips on the River Alde, a round of golf at Aldeburgh or Thorpeness Golf Clubs, or visits to the English Heritage castles at Orford and Framlingham, or many other Heritage coasts little treasures.
The whole area is a excellent for birdwatching including Walberswick National Nature Reserve, Dunwich Forest, Orfordness, the Hen Reedbeds near Southwold, Blythburgh estuary and of course the world famous RSPB reserve at Minsmere.
Fishermen still haul their boats up the shingle beach, and sell their catch each morning. The Meare at Thorpeness is a short walk passing the controversial Scallop by Maggie Hambling. Snape, Southwold and Walberswick a paradise for children, especially if they enjoy crab fishing, are all a short drive away.
