Walks & Rides

The Deben Estuary

The Sorrel Horse is surrounded by beautiful walks and cycle routes – use us as a pit-stop for your day out or enjoy a great lunch or supper before or after.

We’ve teamed up with SkyeStrolls who have put together some great routes to follow from a gentle two mile stroll from Hollesley Village, to a more testing 20 mile bike ride starting and finishing at the Sorrel.  Please note that we recommend an Ordnance Survey Explorer map or similar should be used in conjunction with these routes as all distances are approximate and maps are not to scale. The routes are also available on phones and tablets from ViewRanger.com  Enjoy!
