Romantic Places in Suffolk to Visit with Your Partner

If you are planning on organising a long weekend away with your loved one, we have compiled some of the most magical places to visit with your partner while you stay with us in our romantic log cabins. All of our stunning lodges come with a private hot tub for you to enjoy, as well as scenic views of our small lake and lush green lawns. Within just minutes of our romantic lodges Suffolk there are several picturesque places for you to enjoy, from beaches and natural reserves to small and charismatic villages.

The River Orwell

For a pleasant and scenic evening out, the River Orwell is perfect, with gorgeous scenery and rich tones of red cast across the sky as the sun sets. Book yourself on an idyllic river cruise with Viking Mariners, and relax together while enjoying a luxurious champagne supper. 

Avid bird watchers will also enjoy the birdwatching cruise on the Thames Sailing Barge, where experts will help you to spot and identify a huge variety of birds including wildfowl, waders and migrants. This daytime trip includes a lunch at one of Ipswich’s best restaurants, where you can enjoy local food and drinks.

Snape Maltings

Snape Maltings is a rich cultural site where you can find a variety of shops, galleries, restaurants, and the world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall. The shops here are varied to suit all types of people, making this a perfect day out for couples to enjoy on Valentine’s Day. Here there is also a food hall where you can purchase local and seasonal produce, ready to take back to our romantic log cabins where you can enjoy an intimate night in together. 

The Maltings lie on the banks of the River Alde, where there are some wonderful wildlife walks to enjoy. You can also explore the expansive tidal estuary by boat or foot, with a number of paths to guide you as you discover the amazing marshes and heavenly heath.

Southwold Pier

This traditional pier boasts a wealth of local shops and restaurants, in which you can enjoy the beautiful views of the Suffolk coast. The cosy restaurants are perfect for a romantic meal, while the beach provides a delightful setting for an afternoon or evening stroll.

Here you can even own a little piece of the pier as a special way of remembering your visit, by buying a celebratory plaque with a custom message on it, which will then be displayed on the pier for all to see. This is a great anniversary gift, and can be used as a special way to say something to the person you love.


If you are visiting Windmill Lodges as a family, Minsmere coastal nature reserve is the perfect place to head to for a special day out, with a huge array of activities and events to take part in. Here, there are a number of buggy friendly paths, so small children can also enjoy the day, without getting too tired.

While visiting Minsmere you can also spend an educational day of bird watching, with popular species to be found here such as the bearded tit, marsh harrier and nightingale, which can be heard singing in the woodland throughout spring.


This Peter Pan inspired village is full of magical places for you to see, including the dreamy House in the Clouds, a transformed water tower. Also in the village is a boating lake which is dotted with islands, all with a Peter Pan inspired name. Here, you can take a boat ride for two, while basking in the peacefulness of your surroundings.

Our romantic log cabins are ideal for a quiet and enchanting night in with your other half. If you don’t fancy going out to eat, our self-catering accommodation means that you can cook up a treat together, using the freshest local ingredients. As our exclusive site has only seven cabins, we can ensure that you can enjoy maximum privacy for your stay.
