Things To Do in Pakefield
Lowestoft is the most easterly settlement in the United Kingdom and its wide, golden beaches make it a great choice for a quintessential British seaside holiday.
Enjoy a paddle or relax in the Victorian Gardens that overlook the beaches. Visitors have the chance to familiarise themselves with the town’s past at The Maritime Museum or may want to sample the local famous kippers, available at one of the smokehouses.
The town of Southwold is about a twenty-minute drive from Pakefield and is home to the RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve which is a must for nature lovers. Some of the UK’s rarest wildlife, including avocets, bearded tits and bitterns can be found at the reserve and some lucky visitors have even seen otters in the reed bed pools.
Beer lovers should consider calling in at Adnams Brewery, the local brewery where beer has been made, in some shape or form, since 1345.
A glass of their finest is included for everyone who takes the tour. Book a tour around the brewery or visit the Copper House Distillery where Adnams’ range of spirits are made.
Slightly further down the coast is the town of Aldeburgh. Aldeburgh is an old town that established itself as a leading port in the 16th century and had a successful shipbuilding industry. The Moot Hall and the Martello Tower built during the Napoleonic era bear witness to its ship-building and trading past.
Tourism took over as the key industry in the 19th century and visitors are still attracted to its famous yacht and sailing club and its blue Flag pebble beach.
Check out the fishermen’s huts on the beach where you can purchase that day’s catch fresh off the boat. More recently Aldeburgh was home to the composer Benjamin Britten.
In addition to his work as a composer, Britten set up the Aldeburgh festival in 1948 and it still draws locals and tourists to the town every year. There are several lively festivals held here so check the calendar before you book to see if there is something for you and your family.
Florence Cottage is a fantastic choice for groups looking for a relaxing break with a four-legged friend, right next to the beach.
The cottage is comfortable, practical and has an enviable location. It is perfect for unwinding in after a day exploring the nearby beaches, local heritage or nature watching in the local area.
The nearby beaches are great to wander along whatever the weather, and visitors are spoilt for choice as to which ones to visit.
The festival calendar in Aldeburgh also makes this a great accommodation choice for year-round visitors and nature-lovers are also in for a real treat in this part of the country.
Florence Cottage is a comfortable and practical accommodation choice where guests can recharge their batteries and a great base for exploring all of the activities on its doorstep.
