Putting a Suffolk Spring in our step
Spring has finally sprung bringing with it the undeniable promise of Easter bunnies, chocolate eggs and hot cross buns. The days are starting to get longer, which means there are more daylight hours. Ideal for getting out, exploring the great outdoors and shaking off those winter cobwebs! Why not spend this Easter in Suffolk?
Where to stay, what to do?
There is always plenty happening over Easter in Suffolk and with so many stunning locations to visit, there’s no shortage of ideas and activities to keep you busy. We’ve pulled together some of our favourite places and what’s going on over Easter…
The charming seaside town of Southwold really starts to wake up at Easter but if you’re not quite ‘beach ready’ yet, why not enjoy The Easter Bunny Hunt at the Southwold Maize Maze? Re-opening at Easter, after a winter sojourn, with two mazes, eight acres of maize, 12 mischievous bunnies and four naughty maize characters out to trick you, you’d be hard pushed not to enjoy this local delight!
Sleeping up to eight, Forest Lodge is an exceptionally spacious self-catering family house – ideal for a traditional seaside holiday or short break with family and friends.
from £1943.00 per week
Did you know the Suffolk town of Walberswick was, up until very recently, the home of the annual British Open Crabbing Championships? Crabbing is still a popular activity up and down the many inlets on the Suffolk Coast, with many shops selling all you need to enjoy this quirky pastime – just remember to be gentle with your catch and return them to the water at the end of the day!
Webster Cottage. Ideally located just a stone’s throw from the expansive beach in Walberswick with a separate garden room making it ideal for grandparents or teenagers with its own entrance.
from £834.00 for 3 nights
Another quintessentially British seaside town, Felixstowe has so much to offer with a wonderful mix of traditional seaside attractions and activities to suit all ages, an award-winning garden and nature reserve. Visit the Port of Felixstowe and take part in the Easter Trail around Landguard Fort and learn all about this fascinating and important part of England’s coastal defence history.
Martello Dawn is the perfect Felixstowe property for families wanting to enjoy a seaside holiday with uninterrupted views from the sea balconies and plenty of games and toys to keep children occupied. Sleeps 6 with allocated parking spaces for two cars.

An inspiration to J.M.Barrie, who often stayed in Thorpeness, references to the ‘home of Peter Pan’ are evident in the pretty village of Thorpeness. Take a boat out on Thorpeness Meare to see the Peter Pan themed islands with ornamental gardens – just be careful of the crocodile hiding in the trees! Or walk along the sea front into Aldeburgh, wonder at the ‘Home in the Clouds’ and for the golf enthusiasts, Thorpeness is regarded as one of the finest coastal heathland golf courses in Britain!
Down a small driveway, you will find 1 Beach Cottage – a lovingly renovated fisherman’s cottage with all the fixtures you need to relax in the charming village of Thorpeness. A handmade kitchen and dining space for six makes this the perfect property for a family getaway or a holiday with friends.
