Top 10 Reasons

Ten top reasons to stay in the Blyth Valley & environs!

Fab coastline – ranging from quaint seaside charm to the wild and rugged, from golden sand to glistening pebbles. Dips in the sea, picnics in the dunes and miles of walks.

Food & Drink – a haven for foodies and anyone who enjoys eating out at all levels or buying fresh local produce. What’s more Suffolk is famous for its breweries and even beginning to be known for its vineyards!

Walking, cycling and horse-riding – the ideal way to discover a countryside which is perfect for these pursuits being not so flat as to be uninteresting but not too hilly either! Footpath walks galore, bridleways and cycle routes.

History – fascinating rural, industrial, agricultural, ecclesiastical & military heritage. Wonderful museums, medieval churches and ancient timbered buildings.

Events & Attractions – Lots going on! Music Festivals, Country Fairs, Dog Shows, you name it.

Hospitality – a warm welcome awaits whether your pillow is in a yurt, a tent or on a king size bed in a glam hotel.

Climate – the East of England (and we’re nearly as east as you can get) enjoys more sunny days and has less rainfall than the whole of the rest of the country.

Shopping – traditional and new independent shops & crafts mix with antiques and stylish stores.

Culture – classical concerts to street music, serious theatre to seaside romps + umpteen art galleries and so on

Wildlife – BBC’s ‘Springwatch’ selected this place so it must be good! Unparalleled birdwatching
