South of Bungay on the Suffolk side of the river is a handful of small villages known locally as 'The Saints'. It is here that St Nicholas South Elmham lies with its wealth of open countryside. St Nicholas South Elmham is extremely popular with cyclists with a maze of narrow country lanes. South of the curiously named St Cross South Elmham stands South Elmham Hall, a 16th century farmhouse which is now used as an events venue. Just on the outskirts of St Nicholas South Elmham is The Rumburgh Buck - an award winning pub popular with locals and visitors alike. St Nicholas South Elmham has two better-known neighbouring locations including the market town of Halesworth and Bungay both of which are approximately seven miles away as well as having the popular seaside town of Southwold just fifteen miles away and the Beccles broads close by. If you're into local ales and wine local must-see attractions include St Peter's Brewery and Barrell and Sellers breweries as well as Valley Farm vineyard. St Nicholas South Elmham provides the perfect base for a family holiday and for those looking to do some sightseeing, bird watching and fishing.
