Circular Walks Directions
3 Sizewell Common Thorpeness Coastal Footpath
miles - 2 hour stroll
From The Vulcan Arms, take the road towards the
beach and as it turns a sharp left you will see a track leading
off to the right. Walk along this track and head towards the black
beachhuts. At the beachhuts you should see a caravan park at the
edge of the cliffs. Walk towards this and follow the Heritage
Coastal Footpath signs.
The coastal footpath leads you along the clifftops
until private land forces you down to the beach. Keep walking
along the beach until you see access back up to the top of the
cliffs where it will lead you out onto Thorpeness Common. A path
runs parallel with the coast, then onto a residential track into
Thorpeness. At the road junction turn right. At the immediate
next right turning a footpath sign guides you back for the return
To get to The House in the Clouds, The Windmill
and Thorpness Meare, proceed along the road as it bears left past
The Dolphin public house. Keep walking another 200 metres and
you will reach the Meare. Here you can obtain refreshments from
the Meare shop, which also sells duck food for those wishing to
feed the myriads of wild fowl that flock together about the Meare.
A cafe is located opposite the shop, selling a vareity of foods
from snacks to hot meals..
For The House in the Clouds, take the second right
turning past The Dolphin, up an unpaved road. Both structures
are located at the end of this road before the golf club.
To return to Sizewell take the junction as mentioned
earlier, follow the footpath signs, up the track, then up by the
side of the end house where the track turns right. Keep on this
track for 200 metres until a footpath leads off to the left. This
is not signposted! This narrow footpath leads you through a ‘tunnel’
of overhanging trees. Keep on this path, avoiding the branch off
to the left until it junctions with a farm track. Turn right and
follow this track. After another 200 metres the track crosses
another farm track. Carry straight on and the track will slowly
turn left and become paved. This then takes you out on to the
main Sizewell road. Turn right and the pub is 200 metres onwards.
