Situated close to both coast and countryside, Wangford is a great base for exploring some beautiful locations such as Reydon Woods and Covehithe Beach. Many popular seaside towns are also within easy reach, such as Southwold which is approximately ten minutes’ drive away. This unique seaside town has a spectacular coastline, plenty of lovely shops, a traditional pier and charming pubs and restaurants.
You’ll find the riverside town of Beccles just a short drive away along the A145. This riverside market town has an interesting mix of shops and independent retailers.
