The Waveney Valley is home to the market towns of Bungay, Beccles and Halesworth; each packed with independent shops, cafes and galleries - ideal for buying local produce, jewellery and unique gifts, homewares and fashion. This pretty little market town has a lot to offer when it comes to shops.
Located in Earsham near Bungay, Flint Vineyard is an award-winning vineyard producing four wines; Bacchus 2018, Silex Blanc 2018, Pinot Noir Precoce and the Charmat Rose 2018 - ideal as a special gift or as a treat for yourself!
If you prefer ales to wine, head to St Peter's Brewery where you can enjoy a tour of the brewery and buy a case of one of the craft beers including stouts, porters, ales, lagers, alcohol free, gluten free, organic beers and seasonal specials.
Just a short drive away you will also find Fen Farm Dairy - producer of Baron Bigod Cheese, which was served at the wedding reception of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! The farm produces and sells a range of mouthwatering raw dairy products including raw-cultured butter, free range eggs, raw cream, buttermilk and milk from their farm shop, and you can fill up a bottle of delicious raw milk from the farm's vending machine!
For homewares, check out Huus in Halesworth and Southwold; the two stores offer gifts, home accessories and furniture inspired by the clean lines of Northern European design plus popular items such as candles, soaps and certain ceramics. If you're looking for an extra special gift or romantic gesture, Densoms Jewellers sell a collection of classic and contemporary jewellery and offer a bespoke design service if you want something truly unique.
