Local info

Metfield is the centre of everywhere. Easy access to train stations. An hour and a half and you are in Liverpool Street Station in London.

If you love long walks then we have many of them around the village and over the World War II airbase. If you love visits to the local market towns then Beccles, Bungay, Halesworth, Harleston, Diss and Eye are on your doorstep.

If you like the excitement and shopping of big cities and towns - you can get to Ipswich, Norwich and Bury St Edmunds in under an hour

If the seaside appeals you can go back in time to Southwold or Aldeburgh or take your bucket and spade to Gt Yarmouth and Lowestoft.

If you love history and architecture Suffolk is festooned with beautiful churches including 3 gorgeous examples in Metfield, Withersdale and Linstead villages. Sutton Hoo (an Ango-Saxon burial ground) is just up the road at Woodbridge. Magnificent Castles at Framlingham and Orford as well as Norwich.

If it's art and culture - then we have theatres at Bungay and Southworld and an Arts venue known as The Cut in Halesworth. The Latitude festival is just up the road at Henham and Halesworth hosts the 'Gig in the Park' every August. And of course the world reknown festivals at Aldeburgh and Snape.

Rivers and Wildlife? We are on the cusp of the Broads. We have good fishing locally at Weybread Pits and birds aplenty throughout the area and especially at Minsmere Nature Reserve on the coast.

If excellent food is your thing we have pubs and restaurants galore. Halesworth just 7 miles down the road offers Indian, Thai, Italian and Chinese as well as the usual English fare. Harleston (4 miles), Mendham (2 miles), Fressingfield (3 miles) and Wingfield (6 miles) also have great pubs and you can even get a pint at the Metfield Village Hall at the weekend.
