Conde de Nast Traveller
We were super thrilled to be featured in the June publication of Conde Nast Traveller. Unveiling the Suffolk coast and its hidden gems, Francesca talks about the low-key charm of Walbersick with its wind – whipped cottages and wide sandy beaches, the ruggedly charming Aldeburgh with the ‘freshest fish and chips on the planet’, taking a picnic to the island in Mere Lake in Thorpeness, sipping oysters from a quayside shack in Southwold and of course a stop off at Collen & Clare in Southwold!
“Should the desire to buy a pair of J Brand jeans or an Ilse Jacobsen raincoat outweigh the need to go crabbing, Collen and Clare on Southwold’s Market Place is like a mini-Fenwick” Conde de Nast Traveller – June 2016
Conde Nast Traveller’s top things to see and do whilst the Suffolk coast:
- Taking the ferry from Southwold to Walberswick – rowed by Dani Church who’s family has been offering this shuttle service since the 1800’s
- Abandoning the car and opting to walk and cycle for the best view of the countryside
- Having a pint of Ghost Ship Ale in the Lord Nelson – a short scamper from Southwold beach
- Having Saturday night pizza from Two Magpie Bakery – the Cheese H Crust is a favourite, a crispy base laced with locally smoked ham, organic honey and rocket
- Taking the Adnams Brewery tour in Southwold – the view from the top is the best in town
- Taking a stroll past Southwold’s candy coloured beach huts for a locally churned ice cream before taking a trip to The Under The Pier Show for the most eccentric amusement arcade.
- Visiting Southwold’s tiny cinema – The Electric Picture Palace aims to recreate the cinema-going experience of the 1950’s.
- Crabbing in Walbersick
- A wander and shop in Collen & Clare
