From the A12, take the A1094 to Aldeburgh. Follow the brown sign directing you straight on towards the roundabout. At the roundabout (past the supermarkets on your right), take the first exit: the B1122 Leiston Road. Golf Lane is the second turning on the left, directly opposite the brown sign directing you to ‘The Red House’.

Users of satnav and online mapping systems beware: you may be misdirected into Linden Close, from where there is no access to our site.


There are two car parks available onsite: car park 1 is via the main circular drive and car park 2 is the next turning on the left. There is a disabled space and electric car charging point in car park 2.


We encourage cyclists to use our bike shed which is located in car park 2.
