It is convenient for Minsmere, Aldeburgh and Dunwich. Norwich and Gt. Yarmouth are within reasonable driving distance and there are many good restaurants and pubs within easy reach from Brampton.
Getting around
There is a bus service to Becles and Southwold. The train station is 3 miles away (Brampton servged generally from Ipswich).
