Local Area

Known as the Sunshine Coast, the local area of the Tendring Peninsular boasts both stunning coastal and countryside landscapes with access to long stretches of sandy beaches as well as the beautiful rural aspects of Constable Country.

Locally the town centres of both Frinton and Walton are within easy reach whilst the major towns of Colchester and Ipswich are only a little futher afield and can be reached by car or train within approximately 30 to 40 minutes.

A good selection of pubs and restaurants can be found locally within a short walk or drive with plenty more we would recommend in the wider area; you will be able to find something to suit all budgets and tastes!

You won't be at a loss for things to do with attractions such as Walton and Clacton Piers, Colchester Zoo and Jimm'y's Farm all nearby.  There are also a number of annual events that are well worth a visit:

  • Frinton Tennis Week
  • Frinton Cricket Week
  • Frinton Summer Theatre
  • The Tendring Show
  • The Suffolk Show
  • The Hadleigh Show
  • Clacton Air Show
