Suffolk in Spring

5 things to do in Suffolk this spring

After what seems like an infinite winter, the sun has returned along with his hat and shades to mark the beginning of a warm spring in Suffolk. A great time to visit our Barns for rent, spring makes it possible for our guests to get out and enjoy the very best that the county has to offer. Always keen to stoke the flames of inspiration, we’ve assembled a list of five things to do in Suffolk over the coming months.

1. Hit the beach

In spring?! Well, if the experts are to be believed, we’re in for unseasonably warm spring that will mean we can all comfortably head to the likes of Aldeburgh, Southwold, and Felixstowe well before summer. Whether you fancy fish and chips by the sea or a romantic stroll along the coast, this spring is the perfect time to enjoy these things in Suffolk.

2. Enjoy a pub lunch in a pub garden

We’ve made no secret about being massive foodies on the Woodfarm Barns and Barges blog, so it will come as no surprise that we highly recommend our guests enjoy a spot of alfresco dining when visiting us. With temperatures expected to rise to a nice 20C throughout spring, it’s only right that we suggest you visit some of the pubs we’ve previously written about to sample the menu out in the garden.

3. Play some crazy golf

Whilst there are plenty of places to play proper grown-up golf in Suffolk, there’s no denying that crazy golf makes for an even better springtime activity. Ideal as a date day activity, Jiggers 9 Hole in Thorpeness, Stoneham Barns and Adventure Golf in Felixstowe make for a great day out when it comes to playing some crazy golf in the Suffolk sunshine.

4. Take a nice walk

It would be remiss of us not to suggest putting a spring in your step over the next couple of months when renting a Barn in Suffolk. Fast becoming experienced ramblers, our blog writers have compiled a variety of dog-friendly walks to enjoy when out and about in Suffolk. Perhaps the best time of year to sample these trails, the milder springtime weather will allow you to stretch your legs and explore in complete comfort.   

5. Soak up some live music

With restrictions being eased and artists keen to get back on the scene, live music is set to come back in a big way this year. In Suffolk, we’re totally spoilt for choice when it comes to venues and the kinds of music that’s on offer. From the Apex in Bury St Edmunds to the series of Newmarket Nights commencing on 29th April, we know that our guests won’t struggle to find something truly exciting to treat themselves to when visiting us this spring. 

With so much to see and do in Suffolk this spring, why not take a look at our current availability and take advantage of our Barns for rent for your next holiday.
