This morning after our door to door service takes you to meet the coach we will travel south with comfort stops en route. We aim to arrive at our hotel with some time to spare before dinner this evening. Settle in and enjoy using the hotel facilities.

  • We travel to Waldringfield to board our boat for a cruise on the River Deben, one of the most beautiful spots on the East Coast. Following the cruise we visit Woodbridge, the largest market town on the river and home to one of only five tide-mills restored in the UK. We continue to the much admired Beth Chatto Gardens, where admission is included. Once an overgrown wasteland, the gardens are an inspiration to all visitors.

Known as ‘England’s Finest Medieval Village’, Lavenham is a quaint village with fine examples of timber framed Tudor buildings.  We continue to Flatford, home to the 18th century mill made famous in Constable’s paintings, before visiting the delightful village of Dedham.
