around & about
Easton Grange is located in a beautiful part of East Suffolk, famous for its Heritage Coast, open countryside, relaxed pace of life and great food.
The seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh are both close by, as well as many other pretty coastal villages. The area is popular for walking, cycling and boat trips.
There is a vibrant local food scene with a wide variety of local producers. Thanks to its coastal location the area is particularly well known for its fish.
There are also a lot of options for eating out. Driving through the countryside there are numerous traditional pubs serving great quality local food. The White Horse in Easton is very close to the venue and the perfect place either for a drink before a wedding, or a lunch the following day.
If you are thinking of spending time in the area, there are plenty of local attractions. Here is just a small selection:
Easton Farm Park
An educational project which helps teach children and families about life on the farm. Easton Farm Park offers a unique mix of interactive farm fun, including a chance to meet some of the animals, within a set of listed historic buildings and countryside.
