Summer Sojourn in Suffolk
16 people attending
7 places left
After a very successful visit last year, OutdoorLads is heading on a summer trip to Suffolk for a bit of sun, sand and sauntering though beautiful countryside and along picturesque coastline.
This hostel is pretty unique - it has its own mainline station (well it is the station house to more exact!) - making it perfect for anyone who relies on public transport. So come and enjoy stunning Suffolk on foot, two wheels or even water and explore this beautiful area with friends old and new!
Darsham is is small village nestled in the Suffolk countryside about 6 miles from the coast. We'll be staying at the Darsham Country Centre. A very well equipped hostel with the usual mix of lounges, social space and a particularly nice terraced garden area.
Finding Nemo will be creating some unusual sea-themed cocktails too, perfect for a Summer's evening!
So come with me to explore Suffolk with OutdoorLads and #GetOutMore!
