Within the Yox Valley, guests can choose from a wide variety of award-winning traditional and gastro-pubs, such as The Westleton Crown, a delightful country pub serving a hearty British menu, the Sibton White Horse, an informal pub serving home-cooked food and fine ales and The Queen’s Head in Dennington, a fine 16th Century pub serving excellent cuisine. Restaurants include the Crown & Castle in Orford and Mains, in nearby Yoxford. The Crown in Walberswick and Brudenell in Aldeburgh, both within easy reach of Sibton Park, are also not to be missed.
Aldeburgh and nearby Snape Maltings are a mecca for musicians, artists and poets. Together, they play host to the Aldeburgh Festival, a yearround cultural event founded by composer Benjamin Britten. The Snape Maltings Concert Hall, operated year-round by Aldeburgh Music, hosts a wide array of recitals, travelling theatre companies and musicians and Aldeburgh also hosts its own poetry festival. Excellent shopping and even more culture can be found just over the county boundary in the world-famous university city of Cambridge.
