LOCATION Henstead is a hamlet situated in the North Suffolk countryside, midway between the popular market towns of Beccles with its excellent shopping facilities and provides the southern gateway to the Broads, with the City of Norwich about 25 miles to the north. Seven miles to the southeast is the coastal town of Southwold renowned for its Regency and Victorian architecture, sandy beach, pier, colourful beach huts and promenade, as well as working harbour and the wide open spaces of the common. The surrounding countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within which is the RSPB Reserve at Minsmere, the coastal town of Southwold and concert venue at Snape.
