Reydon Area Guide
Reydon is a popular village situated just a mile away from Southwold.
Buss Creek, a narrow stretch of water, separates Reydon from Southwold and allows residents a short walk to the coast across the Reydon marshes. As a resident you get the best of both worlds, being in the countryside but within walking distance of the coastline.
Reydon is home to two Suffolk Wildlife trust sites, the Hen Reed beds and Reydon Woods, both worth a visit if you are into wildlife spotting and nature. If you visit in Spring, you’ll be in for a treat as the ground is covered in bluebells.
The village itself benefits from two shops and a dog-friendly pub in the village centre, the Randolph Hotel, as well as a church and village hall. Due to its closeness to Southwold though, residents also have the access to all the amenities Southwold has to offer.
Reydon benefits from three main roads coming into the village from Blythburgh and Halesworth, Wangford and north-east to Lowestoft. These roads converge at Reydon to form the main route into Southwold. It also benefits from still having a village primary school, but Southwold primary school is only a mile away too. The nearest secondary schools are at Beccles and Pakefield. Saint Felix School is the nearest independent school in Southwold.
