The hamlet of Ilketshall St Margaret is located just south of the market town of Bungay with all  its shopping, eating and recreational opportunities virtually on the doorstep. Set within delightful countryside that offers peace and tranquillity yet has great links to some of Suffolk's well known market and coastal towns. Southwold and the Heritage Coast are just a short drive with Bungay and Beccles, market towns with diverse shopping opportunities, just minutes away. The whole area is surrounded by National Cycle Routes that should keep keen cyclists busy for at least a week!
