Places to go and things to do:
Toad Hall is surrounded by a wealth of places of interest for adults and children and fine Suffolk villages with their picturesque pubs, most serving good food. The Moon and Mushroom in the nearby village with its friendly atmosphere is an excellent example.
Just a few of the local Suffolk attractions are Framlingham castle (with jousting some weekends), Eastern Farm Park (get close to the animals), Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon ship burial, Helmingham Hall, Minsmere RSPB reserve, Mechanical Music Museum and Pleasurewood Hills Amusement Park. There is sailing at Orford and Aldeburgh and on the Deben and various course, game and sea fishing locations. The local golf course is a couple of miles away and Suffolk boasts a number of others further afield. There are beautiful beaches at Walberswick and Southwold to the north and Felixstowe and Frinton to the south and at Aldeburgh and other places in between.
The area is criss-crossed by a network of rural footpaths, which provide interesting walks and the lanes provide gentle cycle rides. For horse riding, the neighbouring riding stable is an exam centre as well as providing fun for absolute beginners. In the summer there is the music festival at Aldeburgh and Snape maltings. There are of course swimming pools, ten-pin bowling and cinemas within 5 or 6 miles.
