“Excellent walks”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Was an ideal place to go for a walk and see some stunning views, the weather was lovely and this just added to the day, I would recommend the walks to anyone looking for stunning views of the countryside in this area, and we look forward to coming back again soon.

“Good walks and free parking”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Not a lot else apart from the walks but what else do you need? Amazed to find a big free car park just where you need it ! Cafe was popular but in need of a re-furb - nice fruit cake though with everything reasonably priced.

“Enjoyable midday walk”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Beautiful day yesterday and a beautiful walk amongst the colourful heather and gorse overlooking a wonderful strecth of the North Sea.

A guide book is available at the information centre which shows three signed walks around the area ranging from 2.5km to 4km. We combined the three for a 90 minute walk followed by a rest on the pebbly beach. There were a few people swimming.

The National Trust had a cafe at the entrance where you can sit outside. We enjoyed a coffee and cake there.

Very picturesque and brilliant to see the rare sight of heathland at its best.

“Such an interesting place”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Helpful NT staff pointed us in the right direction to look for various creatures spotted on the heath. Walks are well marked and the provision for pond dipping and bug hunting is very good. The heath was a blaze of colour from the heathers and the NT shop there is great!

“Spectacular scenery & plenty to explore”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Quite a peaceful spot as many visitors head to the other beaches in the area. Clean beach (despite the dogs) and pretty heathland to explore. You can hire a GPS device for free to have a go at geocaching (normal mobile signal is patchy) a firm favourite for competitive children and adults alike! Perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of Southwold etc.
