Now owned by Suffolk Wildlife Trust it's a great favourite of ours and we have been coming here for over 15 years in all seasons.. Spot the wild deer, if you can. In the summer watch the kids and dogs splashing about in the river near the bridge.

As I live fairly nearby, this is the ideal place to venture for plenty of fresh air, plenty of variety, and lovely lovely varied walks.The heath is managed well, and a known haunt of many a dog walker.Take a stroll on a hot day by the river....with nice places to paddle or allow the dogs a swim. In the summer there is even an icecream van...which was even there yesterday...21 Oct !
If you prefer, go over the road , through the heather....particularly beautiful at this autumnal time of year...and head for the many wooded pathways....always useful in the heet of the summer as they offer the cooler option.
One of my favourite places !

Recently taken over by Suffolk Wildlife Trust , this is a gem of a place .

Walk by the river, across the heath and through the woods to revitalise your batteries! - Take a well behaved dog with you - they will enjoy it too!

Wonderful short distance walks (less than three miles). Great for walking dogs. Lots of Mont Jack deer and a picnic area and loos. All in all a really good place to go.

Lots of scope for walking, cycling and even paddling in the river! Best out of season as it can get busy - but having said that there are plenty of secluded spots for a family picnic. It is also somewhere people go to exercise their dogs - this can be a negative depending on the owners and their consideration for others!
