Local AreaOur stunning holiday accommodation is fortunate to be located in the Suffolk countryside, allowing to enjoy the unspoiled coastline of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Charming country walks start at your doorstep as a public footpath crosses the old farmyard while many others abound in the local area and throughout east Suffolk. A gentle stroll along the farm access will lead to Friston's church, village hall and village green.
Wildlife lovers can have endless fun at the RSPB Nature Reserve at Minsmere. You may see the shy deer of which there are several species or the European Konik ponies which graze the marshland here as they have proved very successful in this environment. More Koniks are usually easily seen at Hen Reed Beds, a Suffolk Wildlife Trust reserve near Southwold, and Dartmoor ponies are now well established in Dunwich Forest.
