Trains to Darsham

A white picket fence and well-kept planters welcome travellers at the tiny Suffolk station a mile outside of Darsham. Still in the original 1850s station-master's house, the station shares premises with Darsham Country Centre, which is hired out regularly by groups and charities keen to learn more about the idyllic Suffolk countryside and coast. Regular bus services from the village connect Darsham with Southwold, Aldeburgh and RSPB Minsmere Bird Reserve at Walberswick. Trains run hourly along the Ipswich-to-Lowestoft line, so if you have a wait, pop into the Half Way Cafe next to the station, or enjoy the two-minute stroll along the A12 to Darsham Nurseries, with its nursery, shop and licensed cafe. Further afield, through the collection of farms near Darsham train station, there are several pubs and hotels. Or if you're staying a little longer, Satis House, a two-minute taxi ride away, has won Visit Britain's Best Breakfast Award five years in a row.
