About the Area The historic market town of Hadleigh lies close to the Suffolk/Essex border and is approximately nine miles from Ipswich, eighteen miles from the well served town of Needham Market and fifteen miles from Colchester. Hadleigh offers a range of entertainment, leisure, dining and shopping facilities, three state primary schools and Hadleigh High School. The pretty town also has a doctors, dentist, library and tourist information point. Bus services run regularly to Ipswich, Colchester and Sudbury.
Manningtree mainline railway station is ten miles away and Ipswich nine miles away. Both have direct links into London's Liverpool Street with a journey time of approximately sixty-five minutes.
The thriving town of Ipswich is set on the estuary of the River Orwell, providing fantastic walks and sailing, and has undergone an extensive gentrification programme in recent years, mainly around the vibrant waterfront offering many bars, restaurants and the marina, and has become a popular "commutable" town to London. Ipswich offers a wide variety of shopping, commercial and leisure facilities including a full range of sports clubs and societies, restaurants and high street stores. There is an excellent choice of schooling within both the state and private sectors. Excellent sailing and golfing facilities are both available on the popular Suffolk Heritage Coast.

After passing the entrance of Hintlesham Hall on your right at the next sharp bend to the right proceed straight on following Duke Street. Duke Street in turn merges onto Pond Hall Road.

Proceed along the main high street until reaching the mini-roundabout with the Kings Head Public House to your right hand side.
