This is a circular walk starting in Thorpeness, with its many interesting and quirky properties, crossing woodland and grazing marshes before reaching Sizewell. This is followed by a relaxing stroll along the Suffolk Coast Path back to Thorpeness. There are two gates along the walk and no stiles. Approx time taken 2.5 hours. Thorpeness was created by Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie who purchased the Sizewell estate in 1910 and transformed the fishing hamlet into a holiday resort with a boating lake (The Meare), a golf course, a country club and several mock Tudor houses, inducing the famous House in the Clouds. The Vulcan public house in Sizewell or the Beach Cafe in the Sizewell car park make excellent half way refreshment stops, whilst the Dolphin public house serves good meals and has a large beer garden.
