Aldeburgh, the Perfect Escape for 2009

Sometimes just getting away from it all after such a hectic period as Christmas and New Year is all you need to recharge the batteries. A simple stroll along the beach or a walk through the countryside is enough to invigorate you and melt away the stresses and strains of all the planning and organising for the Christmas holidays.

Suffolk has an abundance of great locations for getting away for the day, with a host of historic buildings to visit and a number of bird sanctuaries and country walks. If you’re looking for a brisk walk along a fabulous part of the Suffolk coastline then Aldeburgh is a great location. With its wide stretch of shingled beach and amazing views along the coast it’s difficult to beat.

Aldeburgh is a fantastic coastal town for a wander too, antique shops, quaint boutiques and fantastic hotels and restaurants right along the promenade. One such restuarant, The Bru, part of the Brudenell Hotel, starts it’s Winter Offers on January 5th where you can reward yourself with a delicious lunch or dinner starting at just £12.95, a perfect retreat for those that have worked up an appetite. With it’s choice of delicious dishes all prepared by Justin Kett, the chef, whose passion for using local suppliers from locally reared meat to the freshest of fish, caught locally where possible, there’s something to delight everyone. There’s also a great wine selection too.
