Visit Saxmundham and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Saxmundham, Suffolk. The town straddles the main Ipswich to Lowestoft road and is some 6 miles from the coast. Its main street begins at the south end with cottages and Georgian houses and ends with the Post Office built in the l950s. Along the way you will pass the Angel, the Bell Inn (1842) with Tuscan porch, and the former Town Hall of 1846. Just off the main road is the station and a level-crossing.
The Church of St John the Baptist, at the south end of the town, has been much restored, and under its hammer-beam roof are a number of good monuments by Nollekens, Westmacott and Thurlow who was himself buried in the churchyard. Near the church is Hurts Hall, built in 1893 in the Elizabethan style to replace an earlier mansion by Wyatt. The grounds contain the largest dovecot in Suffolk.
