Reydon, the ideal family holiday destination
Being the neighbouring village of Southwold, Reydon offers visitors with the best of both worlds – coast and countryside. It is divided from Southwold by a long narrow stretch of water known as Buss Creek.
Reydon is listed in the Domesday Book when its population was around 300 people. In the 15th and 16th centuries the village was known as Reydon St Margaret, after its Church.
Reydon is popular with those seeking to explore Suffolk wildlife. There are a wealth of pathways and bridle paths with Reydon Smear providing a pleasantly quiet route all the way to Wangford - just off the A12. Reydon also has its own nature reserve which is not to be missed during Spring when swathes of bluebells can be seen.
Amenities are readily on hand in Reydon with two grocery shops, a doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, the Randolph Hotel which is open to non-residents and more recently The Old Hall Café which overlooks the idyllic Reydon Marshes. The Southwold Maize Maze is situated on the outskirts of Reydon and offers outdoor adventure for all the family including an 8-acre maze, go-karting, zip wires and more.
Other desirable Suffolk destinations are within easy reach of Reydon including the market towns of Halesworth and Beccles and further up the coast are Benacre and Lowestoft.
