Suffolk is at its most serene in January and February but offers plenty of diversions – spin pebbles into the sea, kick sand on empty beaches, collect pine cones in brooding forests and take brisk walks along coastal paths and over heathland………Nothing beats a winter ramble followed by a glass of mulled wine and a hearty meal in one of the many cosy pubs hereabouts.
Other than its reputation as a destination in its own right, the key to Belle Grove is locale – nestling in the countryside but just a hop, skip and jump from the renowned Heritage Coast.There’s easy access to numerous lovely market towns and villages including Southwold, Walberswick, Halesworth, Bungay, Beccles, Dunwich, Framlingham and Snape – and all of them have great eateries, delicatessens, drinking establishments, second-hand bookshops, vintage boutiques and quirky shopping.
Fresh produce is one of the glories of the area whether the freshest of fresh fish from the coast, award-winning pies or vegetables and locally produced meats from the many Farmer’s Markets.
Speaking of rejuvenating, we have the perfect solution for a St. Valentines treat. Not only can you whisk your loved one away to Belle Grove for a uniquely romantic experience but you can also take advantage of treats of the spa variety courtesy of My Personal Sanctuary.
Accommodation rates after New Year are at their lowest, so why not consider a short break…
