Our Inspector's view

The charming Angel Inn has welcomed guests since the 16th century. After a full refurbishment that included the addition of new rooms, it remains a popular spot with the locals and new visitors. The public areas have a wealth of character combined with contemporary touches, and offer a choice of dining rooms that include a smart restaurant with an original well. The menus change regularly and the kitchen brigade only uses the best available produce. Bedrooms are deeply comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. The terrace and garden have been professionally designed and are the perfect spot for a relaxing experience during the warm months of the year. Parking available.

About the area

Discover Suffolk

Suffolk is Constable country, where the county’s crumbling, time-ravaged coastline spreads itself under wide skies to convey a wonderful sense of remoteness and solitude. Highly evocative and atmospheric, this is where rivers wind lazily to the sea and notorious 18th-century smugglers hid from the excise men. John Constable immortalised these expansive flatlands in his paintings in the 18th century, and his artwork raises the region’s profile to this day.

Walking is one of Suffolk’s most popular recreational activities. It may be flat but the county has much to discover on foot – not least the isolated Heritage Coast, which can be accessed via the Suffolk Coast Path. Southwold, with its distinctive, white-walled lighthouse standing sentinel above the town and its colourful beach huts and attractive pier features on many a promotional brochure. Much of Suffolk’s coastal heathland is protected as a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and shelters several rare creatures including the adder, the heath butterfly and the nightjar. In addition to walking, there is a good choice of cycling routes but for something less demanding, visit some of Suffolk’s charming old towns, with streets of handsome, period buildings and picturesque, timber-framed houses.
