By car

From the A12, take the A1094 to Aldeburgh. Follow the brown sign straight on to 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.
