Situated within the town of Leiston which is only 2 miles inland from the Suffolk coast, The Sandy House has an abundance of interesting places to visit and things to do nearby. Coastal villages and towns lie close by and The Sandy House benefits from having great access to a delightful walk that leads to Sizewell beach and takes only around an hour. Sizewell beach is dog friendly with no restrictions and benefits from a mix of sand and pebbles so don’t forget the bucket and spade! Alternatively, an easy 10 minute drive can take you to many popular coastal destinations such as Thorpeness, Aldeburgh and Dunwich, and a little further afield but still within half and hours drive to the North are the seaside locations of Walberswick and Southwold. The Long Shop Museum, which is based at the heart of the town, offers a fantastic insight into the industrial history of the town. The nearby leisure centre offers a gym and swimming pool and is only a short walk from The Sandy House.

We had a fantastic time at this spotlessly clean, modern property. Well laid out with everything you could need. Lovely quiet area and looking forward to returning

Mrs C,

The property was lovely and comfortable. Beautifully furnished and a lot of thought gone into making it as comfortable as possible for guests. Had a very enjoyable stay. Only little niggle was no hot water on second day but sorted very quickly, agents were very helpful

Mrs S,
