HWAT : country walks & places to stay

The Waveney Valley covers the region of North Suffok and South Norfolk, the two counties that border the beautiful river Waveney.

We hope you will visit us during the Harleston & Waveney Art Trail and enjoy the small wonder of the Waveney Valley, a special place that provides a wealth of inspiration for all of our artists.

Are you planning to visit the Waveney Valley? If so, there is some excellent B&B holiday accommodation in and around Harleston, Bungay and elsewhere along the Waveney Valley. We have compiled a list of some places to stay in the Waveney Valley. There are also many places to eat & dine and some charming watering holes too.

There are many walking routes in South Norfolk (link to South Norfolk Council’s list of walks & cycle routes) including the historic Angle’s Way. Also, check out these two local maps of country walks & cycle rides to take around Harleston (courtesy of the Harleston Development Partnership). In neighbouring North Suffolk there are even more walks to follow, such as Mendham by the river and Bigod’s Way near Bungay (links to Discover Suffolk’s list of Suffolk walks). Just follow the links to find out more, where you can download & print off any of the walking maps before your visit to the Waveney Valley.

We pride ourselves that all our artists’ studios are situated within ten miles of the market town of Harleston so that each artist’s studio is not more than a brisk country walk or a bicycle ride away from the next artist. Of course, you just might need to travel by car if you wish to buy some of our art! There is something for everyone and entry to all the artist’s studios is free!
