Walking/cycling weekend Coastal Suffolk
Fri 20th Apr 2018
As I spend about half my time in Suffolk very close to the Heritage Coast I thought it might be nice to put up a weekend of coastal walks and, if enough people and a leader come forward, cycling, as the whole area is criss-crossed with cycle routes.
If you’re a Manic Munro Bagger or run up fells every day this is probably not for you (or could be regarded as a weekend off). But it is beautiful, in a quintessentially English seaside and countryside way, the pubs are many and brilliant, I know the lay of the land intimately, the birdwatching, even for a casual watcher, is fabulous; and if you absolutely have to climb something, there are lots of castles, the Southwold lighthouse to be bagged (I am a “bagger”) and of course the cliffs at Dunwich.....
Accommodation: there is a YHA somewhere nearby, and lots of bnbs and cottages for rent which can be brilliant value shared between a few people. I’m in Peasenhall which is a bit inland half way between the hotspots of Aldeburgh and Southwold and will be HQ for the weekend. Look at my village, Yoxford, Darsham, Rendham, Dunwich, Walberswick.....if coming by train and bringing a bike Montie recently took a very cheap and spacious cottage just S of Yoxford sleeping 6 which is cyclable or even walkable with a backpack from the station at Darsham Junction, 2 hours from Liverpool St and surprisingly good cross country connections via Cambridge from the North and Midlands.
Cottages tend to be let Fri-Mon and there’s so much to do/see that it’s worth taking a day or two off and making a long weekend of it. I would propose walks with a couple of length variations and - as an alternative - cycle rides Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with pub grub possibilities and, weather permitting, a bonfire and bbq at my place on Saturday evening.
If looking for a Cottage and you come across Sheep Cottages there’s no point asking as it’s mine and will be full of me n ma besties for the weekend though there is loads of information on my website sheepcottages.co.uk if you want a general intro to the area.
