Ever-busy Walberswick is a lovely seaside village and The Anchor is its award-winning gastro-pub. Its landscaped gardens are the perfect spot to sink a pint of Adnam's, with views over beach, dune and glittering sea.

The pub's thoughtful menus are crammed with Suffolk's seasonal stars; think West Mersea oysters, Suffolk pork, local game, Lowestoft smoked fish, Blythburgh ham and Baron Bigod brie, plus organic beans, vegetables and allotment herbs. The bottled beer and gin choice is dizzying, the wine list impressive. Summer is punctuated with wood-fired pizza and barbecue nights; retreat to a cosy fireside chair with a book, hot toddy or luxurious hot chocolate on colder days.

The local landscape is diverse (even a short loop includes a surprising variety of scenery) or take the row-boat ‘ferry’ to Southwold, returning via the Bailey Bridge. Organised overnighters can book a cosy room or hunker down in one of the pub's six cute eco-chalets.
