Holton next to Halesworth self-catering stays
Holton village is next door to the pretty independent market town of Halesworth, and less than ten miles from the coast at Southwold. In the village there is a good farm shop, cafe and garden centre, walks straight from your doorstep onto tracks and footpaths leading to heaths and the charming Blyth valley, and there are good public transport links. Holton's landmark and symbol is the 18th century fantailed postmill, which overlooks the village.
Nearby Halesworth has a rich heritage which can be explored through the museum, guided trails and historic buildings. It has a lively arts centre, The Cut, a buzzing Thoroughfare of independent shops and eateries, and is on the railway line to London, only two hours to Liverpool Street so a day trip is possible. There’s even a vineyard nearby at Wissett that welcomes visitors! This a is great place to stay and ideal as a base for exploring Beccles Bungay the Broads and Norwich as well as more locally, villages and churches like Huntingfield and Westhall.
Some interesting wildlife areas can be found in Holton including Lovers' Lane (an ancient pathway with old hedgerows), Holton Pits (warblers, damselflies and butterflies) and the Churchyard (glow worms). Further details can be found on the Wild About Halesworth leaflet, produced by the Halesworth Tourism Group.
