The Shotley Peninsula is a lovely and peaceful part of the Suffolk countryside, located between the River Orwell and the River Stour. It falls within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and you can walk for miles along pretty footpaths and enjoy scenic views on the water’s edge.

The landscape is made up of ancient estate farmlands, with salt marshes and mudflats. The mudflats are important for estuary birds, wildfowl and waders and the wetlands and estuaries have many otters and water voles. There are also large areas of woodland and parkland areas and the Shotley Peninsula has a thriving artistic community and is an area that attracts many artists, photographers and crafts people; so inspiring is the countryside.
