Darsham Country Centre

Darsham, Suffolk


A weekend walking in the Suffolk countryside. Darsham Country Centre near Saxmundham is the old Station Master's House at Darsham railway station. Providing comfortable hostel-style accommodation, the location is convenient for visits to the Suffolk coast at Southwold, Aldeburgh, Minsmere bird reserve and Walberswick. We could also visit Ipswich for art, history and culture.

The Centre is on the station and on the A12, so easy to get to by car or train. Postcode IP17 3PL. It has several 4- and 5-bed rooms and two single rooms.

Deposit £32 to book your place please.
