Located in the quaint town of Saxmundham, The Bell Hotel provides a retreat for travellers looking for a mix of coastal allure and rural comfort.  Just a short drive from the coast, we’re the ideal base for exploring the area’s natural scenery.

Aldeburgh is globally recognised for its association with Benjamin Britten, the founder of the annual Aldeburgh Festival held each June. The town features a charming promenade lined with pastel-coloured 19th-century holiday villas. To the east, a pebble-strewn beach is dotted with fisherman’s huts, where the day’s fresh catch is sold.

Southwold, with its sandy beach and promenade lined with beach huts, provides a perfect setting for holidays and weekend getaways. The town also boasts a vibrant market atmosphere that completes its appeal as a holiday destination.

Dunwich Heath, with its adjacent beach and woodlands, provides the perfect setting for those looking to enjoy a walk amidst nature’s finest offerings. The area is home to a diverse array of wildlife, including the nationally rare Dartford warbler. It’s a haven for nature enthusiasts, so don’t forget to pack your binoculars and camera for a rewarding day of exploring!

The village of Thorpeness is centred around the Mere, a popular spot throughout the year that reflects the village’s whimsical history. In 1910, Stuart Ogilvie purchased the hamlet and began transforming it into a private fantasy holiday village. Today, Thorpeness remains true to Ogilvie’s vision, featuring charming mock Tudor houses and the iconic fairy-tale ‘House in the Clouds.’

Saxmundham, with its lively shops, art galleries, and historic sites, along with nearby Snape Maltings—known for its music festival and arts events—is great for cultural enthusiasts.

The Bell Hotel welcomes guests back to its modern, yet traditionally elegant boutique hotel after a day of exploration. The rooms are designed for comfort, featuring plush bedding, en-suite bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi.  Dining at the hotel’s Heath restaurant is a highlight, with dishes created from local ingredients, including seafood and regional produce.
