Places To Visit in Suffolk During The Autumn Months…

Over the last couple of months I’ve shared with you places to visit in Cornwall during the Autumn months and places to visit in Wales during the Autumn months. For my third post in this series I’m sharing with you places in Suffolk to visit and stay.

We love showing our girls the country that we live in and we’re lucky to live in such a beautiful country with lots of places to visit. We’ve never taken the girls to Suffolk before and it is definitely on our bucket list to take them.

Here are a few places to visit even on an Autumn day.

Undley Pumpkin Patch

Is it even Autumn if you don’t visit a pumpkin patch. At Undley they have pumpkins as far as you can see, spread out across the fields. Come prepared with your wellies, as it can be pretty muddy. They have lots of fun activities going on too, Name the Scarecrow, climb hay bales, donkey rides, face painting, story telling and lots more.

Entrance is free and you pay for the activities you want to do and of course the pumpkins. Lauren, from Dilan and Me recently took her son and just looking at her photos makes me want to visit.

Dunwich Heath

Dunwich Heath is a long stretch of heathland and there is lots to for children. I mean all children love to explore and what better place than the heathland. There is also a smugglers trail to follow, a beach to run around on and skim pebbles into the sea. With a gorgeous tearoom for a cake and a cuppa, sounds perfect.

Car parking is £5, unless you’re a National Trust member and then it’s free. Head over to see Emma’s, from Island Living 365, day out at Dunwich Heath.

Africa Alive

Africa Alive looks like a brilliant day out, with crazy golf, playgrounds and so many wonderful animals to see. With giraffes, lions, rhinos, foxes and lots more.

You can join in with some African dancing and there is a land train to hop on, which is another great way to see the animals. They also have a challenge for children to collect the stamps as they go around, which my girls always love.

You can read all about the day out Pack The PJs had when they visited.

Places To Stay

When we go away we like to stay in cottages, as it gives us more options and when we put the girls to bed, Andy and I have somewhere to sit and relax in the evenings.

Original Cottages have a wide range of cottages on offer. Rowhedge Farm Cottage looks a beautiful place to stay deep in the countryside. With animals roaming around, you could wake up with a deer at your window.

Suffolk Cottages have so many cottages to choose from. I love this one, Hayloft cottage has the most beautiful beams and the living room is upstairs to get the most of the amazing views. It looks like the perfect place for a break.

Have you been to Suffolk before, where would you recommend we visit?

    Oh my Africa Alive looks amazing. I do not think you’d ever get me out of there again, let alone our children!

    Ooh we have never been to Suffolk before, its not somewhere I have considered for a family holiday and is a fair trek for us. That said, it looks like there is so much to do!

  6. I honestly have no idea if I’ve ever been to Suffolk, which is crazy as I’ve lived in the South of England for my whole life! I would love to take the kids to see Africa Alive
