5 reasons to spend Christmas on The Suffolk Coast

Celebrate the festive season this year with Christmas on The Suffolk Coast; from Christmas markets and fine foods, to coastal retreats and boutique hotel stays; there's something to suit all tastes at this special time of year..

1. Christmas Markets

TTD-Woodbridge Christmas Street Fair- Suffolk

Visit The Suffolk Coast during December and you are spoilt for choice when it comes to Christmas food and craft markets. 

On 4th December, head to the market town of Woodbridge and peruse the stalls at the Mammoth Christmas Street Fair where you will find seasonal gifts, local produce and food including roast chestnuts.

On 7th December, the pretty village of Wickham Market holds their festive market. Here you can stock up on meats, cheeses, breads, handmade baskets, wool and plants or head to Halesworth on the 10th December and the medieval marketplace where local artisans will be selling their fine fayre; Two Magpies Bakery with their Artisan breads, Dairy products from the equally famous Fen Farm Dairy, Game pies from Truly Traceable Pies, locally produced beer from the Opa Hays Brewery,  Wines from Valley Farm Vineyard and lots more including specialised preserves, charcuterie, patisserie, cider and spirits. 

For all festive events this December, visit our 'Events Guide'

2. Cosy Inns and Boutique Hotels

WTS-Westleton Crown-Suffolk

If you would prefer to put your feet up and be waited on this Christmas, then a stay in one of The Suffolk Coast’s boutique hotels and cosy inns is just for you.

Sit back, relax and indulge in a hearty breakfast and sumptuous Christmas lunch before heading out for an afternoon walk to make room for coffee and Christmas cake. At the end of the day, head to your room for a peaceful night’s sleep, ready to explore our beautiful coastline on Boxing Day.

3. Festive Fayre

FD-Adnams Christmas Hampers-Suffolk

Locally roasted coffee from The Firestation Cafe, Bar & Coffee Roasters, wines, spirits and ales from Adnams, bread from Two Magpies Bakery, smoked fish and oysters from Pinney’s of Orford and fresh fruit and veg from Giddens & Thompson Greengrocers are just some of the fantastic foods you can take home with you to make a rather special Christmas feast.

If you would prefer to dine out, then book a table at one of The Suffolk Coast’s award-winning restaurants – serving delicious dishes made with locally sourced produce, you and your family can tuck into a Christmas dinner or a boxing day buffet, taking the stress of cooking off your hands!


4. Quiet Coastal Retreats

Oak Tree Farm Yoxford Exterior

If getting away from it all is top of your Christmas wish list, then The Suffolk Coast is the place for you!

Spend the festive season tucked up in a quiet country cottage, complete with roaring fire and countryside walks on your door step, or perhaps you would prefer a coastal retreat; with sea views and a windswept beach to wander along on Christmas morning. 

There’s a huge selection of self-catering accommodation to choose from; from stylish apartments for two to large country pads for groups of family and friends. Don’t forget your pooch too as many of the places to stay on offer allow dogs, and there’s accessible accommodation too; so the whole family can come along. 

For self-catering accommodation and places to stay, visit our ‘Where to Stay’ section. 

5. Christmas Day Coastal Walks

coast3

What better way to walk off your Christmas lunch than with a brisk walk along the beach on Christmas day. Remember to pack your walking boots and binoculars to spot some of the UKs rare wildlife on your travels or if you’re brave enough, take a dip in the north sea and take part in one of the many Christmas Day swims!

If Father Christmas treats you to the latest camera or smartphone, then a walk in the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is sure to provide you with that memorable shot. 

For walking routes and maps, check out our Walking Guide.
