Relax in glorious rural peace, visit local towns and the seaside
South of Bungay on the Suffolk side of the river are a handful of small villages known locally as 'The Saints'. Here lies All Saints South Elmham with its wealth of open countryside. All Saints South Elmham is popular with cyclists with a maze of narrow country lanes. South of the curiously named St Cross South Elmham stands South Elmham Minster and Hall, a 16th century farmhouse which is now used as an events venue. Just south of the hall surrounded by trees is the ruins of South Elmham Minster.
In the heart of the Waveney Valley with its idyllic villages and unique market towns, All Saints South Elmham is an unspoilt haven of wildlife, big open skies and a mild dry climate. Situated equal distance from both the pretty market town of Halesworth, famous for its Arts and offering shopping as it used to be and the historic market town of Bungay, All Saints is a splendid location for holiday makers.
With tranquil surroundings and spectacular views across the fields All Saints offers an escape from the frantic pace of everyday life. An ideal location for walking, cycling, bird watching and fishing, it is within walking distance of an award winning pub (The Rumburgh Buck) popular with locals and visitors alike and close to St Peter’s and Grain breweries and Valley Farm vineyard.
All Saints is centrally located within the Waveney Valley to enjoy boating on the broads at Beccles, frolicking on the beach at Southwold, the hustle and bustle of Norwich or the peace and quiet of the countryside.
Whatever your ideal holiday, All Saints offers the perfect base for a luxury break.
Famous for its highly valued beach huts, Southwold offers you the chance to enjoy an English seaside resort as it used to be - absent are the arcades and candy floss, the fun fair and big wheel. Instead the quirky Electric Picture Palace (designed to reflect the styles of 1912), an iconic lighthouse, a splendid pier (don't miss the eccentric Under the Pier show), a lovely sandy beach and a pleasant whiff of malt from the wonderful Adnams brewery.
Across the River Blyth is Walberswick, until recently home of the annual British Open Crabbing Championship.
