    Are you searching for a place to visit or to stay for a holiday which is off the beaten track,
    but reachable ?  Then welcome to the website for the Suffolk villages of Hollesley, 
    Boyton, Alderton, Capel St Andrew and Shingle Street.  The pace of life is slower here, 
    but your days will be filled with variety and interest.  Great countryside, the coast and wildlife 
    are close for you to enjoy.  If you like walking, cycling, photography, bird watching, painting, 
    writing or just meandering, the peace and beauty of the pine-dotted landscapes beneath 
    the great Suffolk sky will delight you.  This cluster of small villages and hamlets lies near 
    the southern tip of the Sandlings Peninsula, renowned for its wild and beautiful coast, 
    tracts of inland heathland, forests and open farmland.  When you navigate these pages 
    or look at our Picture Gallery, we think you will see why we are excited by what's here. 
    We look forward to sharing it with you.
