SUFFOLK TOURIST GUIDE

Covehithe, Suffolk Coast

Covehithe, on the Suffolk coast just north of Southwold and south of Kessingland, was previously known as North Hales

Covehithe, Suffolk

The end of the path at Covehithe - very Thelma and Louise!

Clearly Covehithe must have been a large area at one stage to warrant such a large Church, but within the ruins of this old Church a 'new' one has been built -with a thatched roof no less. St Andrews, the present church, was built in 1672.

It has a fantastic beach - one of Suffolk's best kept secrets! This can only be accessed on foot or by cycle. There is on street parking near to the church and a clearly marked footpath opposite which takes you through fields to the dunes, a short scramble down and you are on the beautiful beach. Not an ice cream seller in sight and no facilities as such but well worth a visit if you are after a secluded spot to take in the scenery and paddle in the sea. A favourite with dog walkers too.

There is also a lovely coastal walk - not for the fainted hearted!

Nowadays you can see lots of working farms rearing pigs - bigger than you think and not to be messed with particularly when they have piglets to protect -

Visit Covehithe soon before the rest disappears into the sea!
