Shottisham is a pretty village situated between Bawdsey at the mouth of the River Deben and the busy market town of Woodbridge; it is also just a short distance away from the coast at Shingle Street. There are many public footpaths to explore in this area of Suffolk and after getting out and about why not enjoy a well-earned drink in the fantastic village pub called the Sorrel Horse which hosts many social events throughout the year.
