The Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB has recently grown!
It’s been enlarged to include the Stour Estuary, in Essex, and ‘Constable Country’ between Brantham and East Bergholt.
The AONB is a unique blend of shingle beaches, crumbling cliffs, marshes, estuaries, heathland, forests and farmland…quite a list, but then quite a place.
Its rich history includes the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo and Henry II’s Orford Castle.
Aldeburgh and the world-famous Snape Maltings are central to the arts scene, with artist Grayson Perry’s fairy tale ‘A House for Essex’ on the Stour. The hugely diverse wildlife is shown off at the renowned Minsmere and Wrabness nature reserves.
Kessingland at the northern end, is a favourite with families. Then there’s Southwold, with its pier, Walberswick, for peace and quiet, and traditional Felixstowe.
If you’re looking for accommodation take a look at this! RENDHAM HALL is set in the heart of Suffolk Coastal areas within easy reach of Southwold, Aldeburgh and Thorpness! Click the link to discover more!
