Places of Interest
In addition to the natural history of the Suffolk Coast, there are plenty of places to visit.
Here are a few for you to consider.
Orford Castle and Framlingham Castle
Orford Castle and Framlingham Castle are only a short drive from the Mill. Both are run by English Heritage and an ideal place to take the kids to see a bit of history. Orford Castle is the smaller castle and an ideal place to combine with wonder around Orford itself. Framlingham Castle is the larger castle and occasionally runs events for the family.
