Nedging Hall is situated in a rural part of Suffolk, surrounded by rolling countryside and picturesque villages.
The rural location of Nedging Hall gives the venue some of the most beautiful walking in the county.
Nedging Hall is the main house on the family owned estate meaning explorers don’t have to follow footpaths.
The estate are very proud of their environmental work, and love people walking the grounds and gardens to see the tree planting, pond restoration and hedge laying that is carried out. Grass tracks are left around crops and there is lots of grassland that can be walked across, just be careful if you have a dog as there are sheep and some (friendly!) cattle in the fields.
The village of Bildeston with its market square is a lovely village to walk to, and is only half an hour walk. Walk down the hill, across the road and then follow the Bildeston Brook, a small stream, all the way in to the village.
The Bildeston Crown is Nedging Hall Estate’s own pub & restaurant in the village. With 3 AA Rosettes this historic coaching inn is packed full of character.
For a longer walk, up to 3 hours, head towards Chelsworth. You will find the quaint pub, the Peacock, where you can enjoy a delicious pint of beer brewed by Nedging Hall Estate’s brewery – Mauldons.
Outside the pub is a beautiful hump back bridge over the River Brett, if you cross and head up the hill, after about 1 mile you will arrive in the village of Lindsey.
The Lindsey Rose is another Nedging Hall Estate pub, you will find an enormous beer garden and be charmed by this rural village pub.
You can come back the same way or head towards the village of Semer and then head left handed, back towards Nedging Hall.
With the freedom of walking over Nedging Hall Estate, you can choose any length of walk, or just head off and see where you end up!
