Location

Sweffling, England, United Kingdom

Sweffling lies in the centre of a rural triangle with the picturesque seaside town of Aldeburgh to the south, Framlingham to its inland west, and the breath-taking natural beauty of coastal Southwold to the east. We are in easy reach of the stunning Suffolk coast, which is a protected area of outstanding natural beauty, but slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the towns.

Steeped in history the area offers a step back in time to small traditional fishing ports with coastal defences, the Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo, the Norman fortress of Framlingham Castle, Henry II's 12th Century Orford Castle and the Dutch defences of 16th C. Landguard Fort. Try to separate legend from fact with the stories of King Edmund whose infamous last battle is rumoured to have been fought in fields of Dernford, was this the very site of his martyrdom and first burial place?
