Set amidst 3,000 acres of meadows, forests and ancient heathland, you can ramble to your heart's content. Sand tracks and paths take you across the heathland to woods, meadows and traditional farm land.  Much of the estate, around 2,000 acres, is managed for the rare heathland flora and fauna; the Suffolk Wildlife Trust have reintroduced sheep to the heaths to maintain the perfect breeding ground for rare heathland birds such as the nightjar and woodlark. Here you might see the silver studded blue butterfly, and hear, if not see, the nightingales singing to their mates in the stillness of a spring night. There are deer everywhere. A rare and fascinating landscape for birdwatchers and naturalists, it is a great area for walking.

And yet you are just a 10 minute drive from the vibrant market town of Woodbridge with its excellent cinema, superb local shops and restaurants and fine restaurants.

Just a couple of miles from the Deben estuary and Sutton Hoo, the coast is also close by. Ideal for those who want to explore a rare and wonderful landscape, walkers, cyclists, horse riders and anyone wishing to learn the art of carriage driving. Nearby National Trust properties include Sutton Hoo, Orford Ness and Dunwich Heath. Close to the sea, you can enjoy boat rides, swimming and sailing. The ancient market town of Woodbridge is nestled on the Deben River, both the waterside area and the town are lovely places to visit.

Eating and Drinking:
There is a nice pub within a 15 minute walk of Vale Farm Barns, The Sorrel Horse in Shottisham (both around a 15-minute walk). Woodbridge has a fantastic selection of coffee shops and restaurants, including Wild Strawberry Cafe, The Tea Hut, Honey & Harvey, The Crown, The Riverside, The Galley and The East Coast Diner  - all are very good. There are some great pubs (top of the list is The Angel), many of which sell the local Adnams beer. Many of the shops sell excellent seasonal local produce and of course the fish is fresh every day (you are just a couple of miles from the sea).
