Things To Do

The Munnings Trail

Suffolk Countryside Walks

Sir Alfred Munnings, the famous Suffolk artist, was born at the Mill in Mendham and spent his early years in this delightful corner of Suffolk. He painted in a number of places in the locality and he also travelled extensively around the whole Suffolk area on horseback. This fascinating part of Suffolk is situated just south of the Norfolk border. Many of the parishes carry the names of saints and they all possess a wealth of history.

The Munnings Trail provides an ideal walking opportunity during your stay at one of our luxury Suffolk holiday cottages. During your walking journey, you will find that the villages, with their churches, winding lanes and large greens, all contribute to what is a remarkable piece of England. There are some places, however, that can be seen only on a walk. A good example of this is the remarkable ruined Minster of South Elmham. Hidden amongst woodland and barely visible from the road, it was at one time the mother church of the diocese and probably dates back to the 680s.
