Blossom by Blossom, Spring has Sprung in Suffolk. Woohoo! That’s it, it’s finally here, and, although it may not feel like it, this week is officially Spring!
At Mollett’s Farm, we love spring. Not just because it is a sign that things are going to get warmer and we will see more sunny blue skies, but also because in Spring, Suffolk comes to life. Flowers bloom, the trees and bushes are filled with birdsong rabbits and hares frolic in the fields and everything just feels that bit happier!
The whole of Suffolk bursts into life and that includes our beautiful homestead of Mollett’s Farm and the surrounding area! The woodlands become a hive of activity, the meadows fill with fresh flowers and of course, there’s always a few little fresh-faced chicks, ducklings and sometimes even a peachick!
It’s hard not to smile and relax during springtime and if you join us for a stay or a long weekend in one of our gorgeous Granary Cottages or accessible Stables Studios we guarantee that you will depart feeling like a spring chicken, revitalised, rejuvenated and with a warm smile on your face.
We’ve created a list of some fabulous things to do when you join us for a stay and enjoy springtime in Suffolk, so read on to find out more.
Things to do this Spring in Suffolk
Spot the Mad March Hares
RSPB Havergate is known as one of the best places in the UK to spot march hares. Throughout March and early April, these mostly solitary creatures provide a fascinating display as the females fight off the keen mating urges of the males by literally boxing with their front paws. If you have ever wondered about where the saying “mad as a March hare” came from, then an exciting boat journey to Havergate Island to watch this energetic Spring spectacle will clear up those wonderings.
See the new lambs at Easton Farm Park
Nothing says spring like baby animals and the best place to see spring lambs is Easton Farm Park. It’s the perfect day out with the kids and you might even meet some more kids (baby goats!) as this working farm welcomes a huge range of new babies including piglets, chicks, ducklings, kids and even donkey foals.
Walk among the Bluebells April – May
It’s no secret that Suffolk’s Bluebell woods are the envy of the rest of the world, thanks to the acres and acres of ancient and native woodland we’re blessed with. The largest expanse of bluebells in Suffolk is to be found at Captain’s Wood, the whole forest floor is blanketed with bluebells and to make it even better it’s just a short drive from our luxury accommodation.
Listen for the Minsmere Dawn Chorus / Sounds of Spring
Minsmere RSPB reserve is one of the RSPB’s first reserves. It covers around 2,500 acres of diverse habitat. Spring is the best time to visit this beautiful the flagship nature reserve, and it’s the perfect time to see swans, grebes, ducks, peregrines, owls, harriers, divers and even an otter or two! To learn all about the birds they have some very special events running in April and May. Why not join an expert for a walk around the reserve. Best of all? Breakfast is included!
Dawn Chorus 27th April & 11th May
Sounds of Spring 7th April – 31st May (Tuesdays & Sundays)
Suffolk Show 27th & 28th May
We love the Suffolk Show so much we’ve written a whole post about it. This year is on track to be even bigger and better. Now in its 188th year you’ll find over 150 food and drink stalls full of fabulous Suffolk produce; live music, fashion, art and of course, all the traditional farming, agriculture and machinery plus competitions, The Suffolk flower show and more brilliant activities. It really is a great day out for the whole family.
