Situated in the heart of Suffolk, endless paths stretch to all reaches of our gorgeous surroundings.

We have mapped out some of our favourites for you to follow, whether you’d like a short stroll or a heavy hike.

Be sure to stop by for a meal at The Lindsey Rose at the end of your walk. It’s the perfect spot to refuel. 

These walks can get a bit muddy during wet weather so be sure to bring wellies and warm clothing.
