The Rural Waveney and Suffolk Area

St Andrews Church

The rural Suffolk village of Wingfield boasts the beautiful church of St Andrew, built in 1362 as a collegiate church for Sir John Wingfield’s foundation, Wingfield College. Inside the church are the effigies of Sir John de Wingfield, Michael de la Pole, his wife Katherine and John de la Pole and his wife Elizabeth Plantagenet, Richard III’s Sister.

The Wingfield Barns Arts Centre

The Wingfield Barns Arts Centre is a further attraction in the rural Waveney area; home of theatre, art exhibitions, concerts and weddings.

Pubs and Restaurants

Wingfield is well situated for a range of excellent rural pubs and restaurants serving Suffolk brewed ales and good quality food. The Fox and Goose in Fressingfield is also close by and comes highly recommended by many of our guests.

We are happy to make a reservation for you.

Local Suffolk Area

Holly Tree House B&B is ideally situated for exploring the Waveney Valley and the rural Suffolk countryside and Heritage coast - be it Southwold or Aldeburgh for the pier, beach and shops, or Snape Maltings for concerts and shopping.

For the more energetic you can take a walk to explore Minsmere or Dunwich or take a ferry from Southwold to Walberswick and participate in some crabbing!

Cycling and Walking

For cycling and walking enthusiasts, there are many quiet rural lanes and footpaths in the Waveney Valley. Whatever your interest, we will be very happy to make suggestions of how to spend your time during your rural retreat.
