Meet the team

YHA Blaxhall is run by Amy and Jamie. Amy’s family are Suffolk born and bred and the rest of the hostel team are local too so there is a wealth of knowledge of the area right on tap. Amy and Jamie’s perfect day in Suffolk would include a trip to National Trust Sutton Hoo to explore the world of the Anglo Saxon Kings, fish and chips at Aldeburgh with a promenade up the beach to see the outstanding Scallop Shell sculpture, ending with a wander round the nature reserve at RSPB Minsmere to see as many birds, deer and other wildlife as you could dream of!

Snape Maltings is just two miles away. Snape has something for everyone, from art galleries and sculpture gardens to river boat trips and beautiful walks along the edge of the River Alde. Snape Maltings Concert Hall is home to the Aldeburgh Festival of music, founded by composer Benjamin Britten and tenor Peter Pears.
