What Bardwell, Suffolk offers for Self-Catering Holidays
Some of the roads such as Church Road are quite narrow; real country lanes edged by hedges, meadows and farmland. The lanes are wonderful for cycle rides or country walks. Cycle to Up Street and the Six Bells Inn to enjoy rural views and a drink in a country pub at the end of it. Walk along Up Street and you will notice uses of weatherboarding in black on the houses, or flints incorporated into the walls. These features give Suffolk buildings their character.
