Walking in Suffolk

Many of our guests enjoying their log cabin holidays in Suffolk love to go walking during their stay and our location is ideal if you are on one of our short Suffolk breaks. Whether you are looking to explore local footpaths, stroll through quaint villages or perhaps take a short drive to experience walks in the forest or along the beach, there are plenty of walks to choose from!

Here are some walking suggestions and information for you so that you can make the most of your stay with us in our lodges in Suffolk.

Local Walks – Exploring the local area on foot is easy and local footpaths can be accessed from our site. One of the local walks will even take you past a beautiful working windmill!

Just 2 miles away you will find the historic market town of Framlingham where you can enjoy a walk around Framlingham Mere Nature Reserve found right next to Framlingham castle. The castle is well worth a visit too and its an ideal place for a picnic especially for anyone enjoying one of our short romantic breaks. What better thing to do than a walk and picnic by a castle!

You can then explore the town of Framlingham, just a short walk from the castle. It has the wonderful Framlingham Town Trail which has lots of interesting information and things to discover as you walk around this pretty town.

Forest Walks – Walking in the forest is great at any time of year and just a 30 minute drive from our cabin holidays in Suffolk you can get back to nature and explore both Rendlesham and Tunstall forests and they both offer something different. Rendlesham forest is a great place to take children as it has play areas, walking and cycle trails and there is even a UFO trail if you are looking for something a little bit unusual! Tunstall Forest with its abundance of conifer trees and heathland areas are great for following the walking trails and just getting away from it all and seeing what wildlife you can spot on your journey through the trees. There is also a 10 mile single track mountain bike trail. More information can be found on the Forestry England website here
