On The Water

June’s Photo of the Month Competition

June’s photo of the month competition was all about being on, near, by, or in the water in Suffolk.  The stunning entries have generated a fantastic album of photos submitted by our guests and true fans of Suffolk.  Views so captivating you’re sure to be tempted to hire your own Suffolk cottage by the water in no time!

On the Water in Suffolk

Southwold Harbour.

The simply breathtaking Southwold Harbour near Ferry Road is the subject of our first entry.  Southwold Harbour is a fully functioning harbour offering a range of different services, for example short-stay moorings, along with boat builders and restorers.  The traditional fish shacks at the side of the harbour serve the catch of the day, you can’t get fresher!  If you’re looking for a Suffolk cottage by the water, take a look at our Southwold cottages with sea views.

Aldeburgh Beach in the Moonlight.

Have you ever seen the moon’s reflection glint on the water of Aldeburgh beach?  This captivating photo features two dogs enjoying the beach whilst their owners enjoy the view.  Aldeburgh is an ideal location to hire a Suffolk cottage by the water that’s dog friendly. View our collection of dog friendly cottages in Aldeburgh for your ideal break in Suffolk with your four-legged friend.

Beautiful Beach Huts.

Southwold’s iconic brightly-coloured beach huts really are something not to be missed!  They add colour and brightness to Southwold’s quintessentially British seafront.  So why not visit Southwold to enjoy a picnic on the front?  Or if its adrenaline and excitement you are after, this traditional town can offer this too!  Coastal Voyager is a high speed blast on the thrilling Coastal Voyager RIB.


The Best of Suffolk judging panel voted and awarded the winning vote to this wonderful photo taken at Snape Maltings.  Congratulations to our winner who will receive a bottle of Adnams Fizz along with a Best of Suffolk voucher!

Certainly, Snape is the ideal village for your stay in a Suffolk cottage by the water if river views and walks are your thing.  Our latest blog on things to do, walks and eateries in Snape is a must read!

Levington Creek

In contrast to the previous picture, and not considered traditionally picturesque, this photo is of Levington Creek.  Unbeknown to many, Levington Creek is one of the best places for estuarine birds on the Orwell river.  Also well known for its beautiful walks running parallel to the River Orwell.  Finally there’s an Adnams pub in Levington called The Ship Inn which can fuel your walk with a refreshing drink or maybe a delicious portion of fish and chips!
