Sutton sits in the Suffolk Sandlings AONB between the Broxtead Estate and the River Deben and is at the centre of an extensive network of footpaths but very few roads . This means you can walk for miles without crossing a road and, because of the free draining soil, it's accessible even after a lot of rain. So, if you're stuck in the mud to the west of the A12, try us!
