Out & About

Suffolk has a rich and varied culture and history, and whether you want to explore on foot, by bike or in the car, there is a wealth of things to do and see. Rendham is 10 miles from the coast at Thorpeness and Aldeburgh, 20 miles from Southwold and Dunwich and there are fabulous coastal walks and cycle routes, golf and sailing opportunities, beaches and fantastic restaurants. Snape, with its internationally acclaimed concert hall, is 6 miles away and Suffolk hosts several international music festivals such as the Aldeburgh Festival, Snape Proms and Latitude. Juniper Barn is 5 miles from the market town of Framlingham with its ancient castle, and within easy reach of many delightful and historical Suffolk towns and villages such as Orford and Lavenham.

The local towns of Framlingham, Woodbridge, Halesworth and Saxmundham have history, shopping, weekly markets and plenty of cafés, pubs and restaurants.


Beautiful Southwold is only 15 miles away and is a very popular destination for visitors to this area. There is something for everyone here, sandy beaches, beach huts and the lighthouse, the iconic pier with its weird and wonderful arcades. Southwold is the home of Adnams and many tempting shops, restaurants and pubs.


Aldeburgh, once a popular Victorian costal holiday resort, is now renowned as a holiday destination for families, sailors, musicians and artists. The annual Aldeburgh Carnival in August runs over a weekend of celebrations and culminates in a lantern procession and firework display.


5 miles up the road is the historic and pretty market town of Framlingham. Visitors can enjoy exploring the ancient castle and the church with its important Tudor tombs, walks round the Mere or browsing in the market on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Framlingham has lots of independent shops and pubs and restaurants serving great local food.


Snape Maltings is in a beautiful spot on the estuary of the river Alde. The famous concert hall was developed by Benjamin Britten and now hosts internationally acclaimed music, literary and food festivals. Snape Maltings is also home to a variety of unique shops, cafes, art galleries and the Plough and Sail Inn.


Thorpeness is a coastal holiday resort originally developed by Captain Ogilvie for family and friends. The town is characterised by its Tudor inspired black and white cottages and the distinctive 'House in the Clouds', which can be seen for miles around. You can hire canoes, rowing boats or a small sailing boat and poddle around the Meare, stopping off at little islands to visit Wendy's House and Captain Hook's castle.


On the banks of the River Deben, the ancient town of Woodbridge is worth a visit.  Explore the lovely old church, wander up and down the High Street browsing in the range of interesting and independent shops, or find a café or restaurant for a leisurely meal.   

Walks and Cycle Rides

The cycle routes and heathland walks make use of the old bridle ways, railway and farm tracks, and footpaths right along the coast from Southwold to Orford provide stunning walks for the keen and less ambitious walker.

Golf, Sailing, Tennis

Both Aldeburgh Golf Course and Thorpeness Golf Course are about 10 miles away and offer challenging play. Woodbridge and Halesworth have pay and play golf courses. Aldeburgh and Orford have great sailing with thriving sailing clubs.  There are several local tennis courts.
