A Suffolk beach which is often referred to as a hidden gem has been named among the best in the UK. 

Walberswick beach, near Southwold, has been included in a list of the best beaches put together by the luxury travel magazine Conde Nast. 

The tranquil coastal spot has grown in popularity in recent years as a result of its stunning scenery and peaceful surroundings. 

Reviewing the beach, Conde Nast said: "Walberswick’s long, grassy dune-backed beach is much quieter and wilder-feeling than neighbouring Southwold across the river.

"It’s just a short walk from its postcard-perfect village, which has several solid pubs, is the unofficial crabbing capital of the UK, and home to screenwriter and director Richard Curtis and his broadcaster partner Emma Freud."

The village is also home to one of the best pubs in the country

The Anchor was named as one of the best pubs in the UK worth travelling for. 

The pub, in The Street and owned by Mark Dorber, was praised for its "excellent" food and drink, as well its range of rooms available for guests to enjoy.
