Great Bealings is a good base for visiting this part of Suffolk. We enjoyed our two nights at the Granary. The room is pleasantly furnished and a reasonable size but I thought lacked character. The bed was comfortable but, as a three star reviewer has said, squeaky. The TV was also too small for the room, but OK for listening to the news in the morning. There is a very small fridge in the wardrobe, but much too small for a bottle of wine.
The breakfast was 'healthy' as other reviewers have said. It was also very enjoyable and plentiful.
The bathroom was a good size, with a shower but no bath. Towels and soaps were all fine.
We ate at The Dog pub in Grundisburgh and the Anchor pub in Woodbridge. Both were very good and highly recommended - although the Anchor lacks 'kerb-appeal' - don't be put off.
We visited Minsmere, Aldeburgh and Flatford Mill. All are well worth a visit.
Woodbridge itself looked quite quaint, although we only really drove through it, but did walk by the harbour/estuary which is quite pretty on a Summer evening.
