The Tidemill, Woodbridge; iconic Suffolk landmark

Suffolk Villages & Towns – Woodbridge

We continue our look at some of the best villages and towns in Suffolk by casting our eye over to Woodbridge.

Woodbridge is a truly beautiful jewel in the crown of rural Suffolk. This superb and historic market town is well worth a visit.

The town is just a short drive from us here at Woodfarm Barns and it is a firm favourite of our guests and staff alike.

It’s one of those wonderful small English towns that has managed to remain almost completely unspoilt by the ravishes of modern times.

Whist it of course has modern supermarkets etc. it is still mostly occupied by real local businesses and stunning historical architecture.

When you shop in Woodbridge you know that you are not only getting lovingly produced local products from local people but that you are also helping to keep a local economy thriving.

Quite apart form the fact that Woodbridge is just down the road from Sutton Hoo (one of the most important historical sites in the world, which we’ve written about in previous blogs) the town itself is practically bursting at the seams with history.

A great place to start exploring some of this rich history is the Woodbridge Museum. This museum is run by local volunteers who really care about the history of the town and have a genuine passion for sharing about it.

Then why not pay a visit to The Tide Mill Living Museum? The river Deben has many wonderful sights, both natural and man made. One of the best is The Tide Mill. This mill was one of the first tide mills in the country and has operated for over 800 years! It is the last working tide mill in England. A real piece of living history.

Looking to visit Suffolk and experience some of these special places for yourself? Why not stay with us in a luxury cottage? You can check our availability here.
