Welcome to Friston
The village lies approximately four miles inland of Aldeburgh, just off of the A1094. Leiston and Saxmundham, with their shops and supermarkets, are an easy three mile drive and Aldeburgh slightly further away at only four miles. There are no less than two cinemas and a theatre within four miles and Snape Maltings is within two miles. We have a repair garage and a thriving pub in the village and a petrol station within a mile of the village.
Friston lies in a beautiful rural location with easy access to the sea, rivers, walks, fields, heathland, forests and woodland areas. We are also in close proximity to the world-famous Bird Sanctuary at Minsmere. We have a windmill, although it is not working and, indeed, has seen better days. The Friston "Post Mill" is not only a significant land mark in the village, it is also the tallest of its type in the country and it is hoped that its renovation may be possible at some future time.
