How to travel here
We want to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible and encourage you to think about travelling here by train, bike or even on foot - we've tried to make it as easy as we can for you to leave the car at home.
Train: we are happy to collect you from Brampton or Halesworth Station (trains run every hour from London Liverpool Street to Lowestoft (connecting at Ipswich). Advance booking secures some very attractive train fares and you can bring your bike.
Bike: If you would like to cycle, we have tried to ensure that we have just about everything here that you’ll need for your stay, including space to store your bike - let us know if you want advice about ordering local produce or groceries beforehand and, of course, there's always the village pub, a gentle 2km away!
Car: if you are driving, we are within easy reach of the A12, running along the East Coast, or the M11, following a cross-country route through Bury St Edmunds and Diss. See the directions above.
Once you arrive we have a good selection of cycle route and OS maps for the area. We also have some bikes to borrow including two new electric bikes! The lanes are great for cycling – quiet and relatively flat, and there’s plenty of things to see and do from beach or river swimming to bustling market towns, all within easy cycling distance.
