Four nights dinner bed & breakfast
The Ipswich Hotel nestles in the quaint village of Copdock, just outside Ipswich. Facilities include: Comfortable bar and restaurant overlooking the large walled garden with outside seating, and free Wi-Fi. Lift serves most bedrooms.
We commence our journey to East Anglia and arrive during the afternoon at the Ipswich Hotel (formerly known as the Cameo Hotel).
We begin the day with a ride through picturesque villages to Snape and Aldeburgh, where we take a break. Aldeburgh is in something of a time warp, with Victorian houses on the seashore, and an attractive main street taking you to the marina. Moving on we head for Southwold, a charmingly old fashioned seaside town with pastel coloured cottages, Georgian houses, a lighthouse and delightful pier. From here we return south to Woodbridge, a thriving old town on the River Deben, before returning to our hotel.
This morning we begin with a short drive to Jimmy’s Farm, which is seen on TV and has developed over many years from a derelict site to a thriving business. Afterwards we make our way into Ipswich for free time to discover the town.
We head to the historic town of Lavenham and have time to explore, before we continue to the unique and interesting Museum of East Anglian Life. This is an open air museum set in 80 acres of countryside with over 45,000 objects exploring the areas rural and social history. There are many animals to be seen including rare breeds sheep. The newly restored Abbot’s Hall is worth a look, and the Osier Café is an ideal place for a drink and a bite to eat.
We depart after breakfast to commence our homeward journey.
