Sudbourne is a village near to Orford and Aldeburgh in the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It stretches from Sudbourne Beach on Orfordness across the Alde and Ore Estuary and fresh water marshes to farmland, Captain's Wood and Tunstall Forest.
The centre of the village, including the Village Hall, lies on the road from Snape to Orford, while the parish church is set in the fields to the east of this road and there are cottages and farms scattered along the lanes. In the fields can be seen pigs, horses and donkeys and even Highland cattle as well as crops. Down on the marshes are sheep and cattle.
The population of Sudbourne is around 300.
Although there are no longer any shops or pubs there is a lively community centred around the Village Hall, the Parish Church and the Baptist Chapel.
Opposite to the church lies the drive to Sudbourne Park, where the remaining buildings of a large
estate have been turned into an attractive set of homes.
The Manor of Sudbourne dates from Saxon times.
Sudbourne and Iken were evacuated during World War II. See the history page.
