Days Out in Suffolk in May

May not only brings us flowers in bloom, lambs and warmer weather but here in Suffolk we have the much anticipated Hadleigh Show and the Suffolk Show to look forward to!

If you’re due to stay with us for either of these events, or are in the area visiting, do book your tickets and enjoy a super day out.

Hadleigh Show

We are fortunate to have the Hadleigh Show, now in its 185th year, just 4miles away in our closest market town of Hadleigh. It’s on Saturday 18th May 2024 and is a full, jam-packed day from 8:30am and last entry into the showground being 4:30pm.

It’s an event that is close to our hearts as Andrew and his family have been involved with the show for over 50 years. Do say hello if you see Andrew or Sarah on the day!

There is so much on offer at the Hadleigh Show and something for everyone!

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Food hall
  • Cookery theatre
  • Equestrian and livestock competitions
  • Animal, motor, stunt and machinery displays
  • Education tent
