Out & About
3 minutes from the cottage is Reydon Wood Nature Reserve, a lovely spot to take a quiet walk with the family. The circular trail takes in about half of the wood and can be walked in 30 minutes.
The walk from Snape Maltings to Iken Church is through one of the prettiest parts of Suffolk offering superb views along the river Alde.
At Dunwich and Mimsmere, a few minutes’ walk from the beach, are woodland and heath known for their birdlife and natural beauty.
With so many to choose from, here is a fantastic website detailing all the walks Suffolk has to offer: www.walkinginsuffolk.co.uk
