Just a couple to add.
There was a cute little pub just up the road from our cottage, so we took a walk up to it. Nice pub, friendly service and decent food. Of course, you have to book, give your name and phone number in this environment, but that’s ok. Interesting story from our waitress, who told us about her 4 month internship studying black bears in Northern Minnesota !
we enjoyed our stay. Although the weather was “ok”, it was cool in the evenings, so we lit a fire most night, which was nice. Enjoyed the cottage, although at 6’2”, I’m sort of relieved to be able to stand up fully when I walk around 😂. My head is relieved we have left if I’m being honest ! Betsy didn’t suffer the same way interestingly !
Well, rather shorter or closer than some of our trips have been, but we chose to rent a self-catering cottage rather than stay in a hotel, as we could sort of remain isolated. So we headed off to Suffolk, which is about a 2 hour (+/-) drive from us. Found a cute cottage in a small village called Thornham Magna, not too far from Diss.
cute place. Fireplaces. 18th century. Thatched roof. Lots of exposed beams etc.. as well as a nice little English country garden.
Took a few side trips out. Went to Southwold, Aldeburgh, Saxmundham, Diss, Eye and various other stops in between. We did a stroll around some antique shops, and similar which was fun. Coffees here and there, fish and chips on the sea front in Southwold and things like that. A nice time.
