Guest reviews

  • My wife and I stayed in the Coach House for a few days last month, we had a wonderful time seeing Suffolk in spring! In practical terms the accommodation had everything you would want, easy parking off road, a well-equipped kitchen, fast wifi, a shower and bath with quick and plentiful hot water! there was a big (super-king) and comfy bed, underfloor heating and the location is great for exploring the coat and countryside.  Beyond the practical, the Coach House is quite beautiful, surrounded by lovely countryside and full of tasteful details - antique furniture, natural stone tiles in the bathroom, crafted wooden doors and window sills (old oak etc).  We would definitely stay again.  C&A Spring 2023

Local Area

Pub: 15 minutes walk to Wenhaston Star Inn, local friendly pub with Boules in the garden. Blyford Queens Head and Bramfield Queens Head walking distance too. Many other pubs and restaurants inland or at the coast an easy car journey away.

Shop: 10 minutes walk to grocery shop, or 25 minutes walk to award winning local family butcher at Clarke's of Bramfield. Village Post Office is just opposite the Church, open mornings. Recommend Independent foodie and book shops in Halesworth, ten minutes drive away.

Beach: 10 minute drive to Southwold and Walberswick, other miles of sandy or stony beaches within easy reach like Covehithe, Dunwich, Thorpeness all on the Suffolk Heritage Coast.

Other Local Attractions:

There are plenty of local pubs and restaurants. At the moment we like The Anchor and The Bell Inn both in Walberswick, Bramfield Queens Head, Blyford Queens Head, Darsham Fox and Huntingfield Arms.

Local independent foodie shops that sell locally produced food:

Emmerdale Farm, Darsham
Clarke's, Bramfield
Focus Foods, Halesworth
Black Dog Deli at Halesworth and Walberswick
Front Room, Bungay

Suffolk has great churches, full of history.. for local services see Blyth Valley Team Ministry and the Sole Bay Ministry.
We like Wenhaston with its Doom painting and Thorington with its Round Tower.
Blythburgh for its wonderful setting and carved angels on the roof.
Huntingfield with its painted ceiling
Walberswick and Southwold for fine flint work.

There are numerous walks around the village on Blackheath and common land as well as footpaths leading to the Balancing Barn at Thorington, and on to Blythburgh, Southwold and Halesworth. Dogs are welcome to walk too.

South Lowestoft Beach is sandy and is at the eastern most point in the country.
Walk to Pakefield and Kessingland and keep heading south - only a few miles along the Suffolk Coast Path.
Southwold - plenty of sand by the Pier and Gun Hill, excellent cafes by the beach
Dunwich - a more stony beach but plenty of space for walking, swimming and a large car park next to the Flora Tea Rooms well known for fish and chips, there is also The Ship Inn and a museum well worth a visit telling the history of this special place.
Walk up by Dunwich Priory too.
A walk from Thorpeness to Aldeburgh and on to Felixstowe completes the coastal walk!
