Date night in Suffolk

How to have the best date night in Suffolk

From long walks on the beach to strolls through the park and evenings spent at outdoor movie theatres, it’s possible to enjoy just about every kind of date night when renting one of our Barns in Suffolk. Whilst Valentine’s might be a distant memory, you never need an excuse to make a proper day or night of dating.

To provide some handy suggestions, we’ve put together an itinerary that covers all of the key bases for a great date night in Suffolk.

A Romantic Stroll

There’s no denying that all good date nights begin with a romantic stroll. Whether it’s meandering down the pretty coast of Aldeburgh or swanning through the East Anglian countryside, Suffolk has plenty of options when it comes to picking the perfect surroundings in which to kick off a date night.

Some Fine Dining
With hundreds of restaurants to choose from, couples will have no difficulty finding somewhere to dine on date night. Unless they’re one of those couples who can never agree on where to eat, of course. Compromises aside, couples can choose between classic candlelit options in the various villages and towns around Woodbridge, with cuisine types ranging as far apart as traditional British dishes to modern Asian specialities. To find out more about everything that’s on offer for your date night dinner, be sure to take a look at our previous blogs all about the best places to eat in Suffolk.


A Movie
Recounting a perfect day in the appropriately named Perfect Day, Lou Reed describes how after a walk and some food he proceeds with his partner to move on to “later, a movie”. Widely considered one of the greatest love songs of all time, it’s hard to argue that moviegoing isn’t a prominent feature of the perfect date night. In Suffolk, our guests are able to enjoy movies in remarkable style, whatever time of year they choose to visit. In the warmer months, there are several outdoor cinemas showing everything from classic flicks to indie titles. In the cooler months, Abbeygate Cinema in Bury St Edmunds provides a cozy and intimate moviegoing experience that perfectly complements a date night.  


A Countryside Retreat:
Wrapping up his perfect day, Lou Reed draws proceedings to a close with the brief summation “and then home”. We like to think our Barns for rent are homes away from home. With the added benefit that they come with a private hot tub and snug countryside surroundings – what could be better?
