Shingle Street Beach

A desolate and hauntingly beautiful location - just a 10 minute drive from The Unruly Pig

There are few places as quiet and remote as Shingle Street. This tiny hamlet is little more than a clutch of cottages standing on the edge of the Suffolk coast, with only each other and the North Sea for company.¬†Shingle Street was originally a home for fishermen and river pilots for the River Ore. Early in the 19th century a Martello tower was built, which was later a home for coastguards. Many of the original buildings date from this period. It is a great place for kite surfing, for a windy walk on a winter’s day and a lazy summer picnic.
