Suffolk Villages and Towns: Southwold

One of the most popular leisure destinations in Suffolk is the stunning seaside town of Southwold.

Southwold boasts some of the best beaches in the entire UK, combined with a rich history and culture, so it’s clear why Southwold proves constantly popular with our visitors here at Woodfarm Barns.

For many people, Southwold’s long stretches of beautiful sandy beach are more than enough reason to visit. However there is plenty more to see and do in this spectacular part of Suffolk’s Heritage Coast.

Southwold’s pier is a particularly splendid jewel in the town’s crown. Whilst many piers around the UK are declining into disrepair, Southwold’s pier is enjoying a new lease of life having been entirely rebuilt back in 2001. We have previously written a blog entirely about this wonderful pier.

Many of our guests enjoy sampling the local tipples brewed here in Suffolk. Many of the most popular of which, and some would say the best, are produced by the famous Adnams Brewery. Adnams have been brewing in Southwold since 1872, when they took over a brewery that had been operating since 1818. Adnams’ award winning ales, ciders and now gin, are a recognised brand internationally.

Brewery tours are available upon booking. You can book your tour by visiting Adnams’ website here.

Fine beers and a sandy beach. What else could the discerning holidaymaker possibly need?

A museum showcasing the natural and cultural history of the area? They’ve got that too!

A lighthouse you can take a tour of? They have that too!

If you’re planning to explore Southwold for yourself and fancy treating yourself to some luxury Cottage accommodation whilst you do so then why not stay with us at Woodfarm Barns? We’re just a short drive from Southwold (and many of the other wonderful destinations in Suffolk).
