Things to do

The Wildings Elms Meadow is situated in attractive countryside just outside Beccles. It's the perfect base for exploring the Suffolk coastline, broads and Norwich.  The beautiful seaside town of Southwold is 25 mins away as is Walberswick which is fab for crabbing, lunch and ice cream eating! Covehithe is a naturally, wild beach which is great for a walk and picnic, not to mention the broads. There are ample opportunities for walking, canoeing, cycling, bird watching and boating locally. Norwich shops is a 30 minute drive away. Enjoy many a walk around the countryside lanes from the site. There are many fabulous farm shops nearby to purchase local produce.
