Harleston is situated just off the A143, roughly midway between Diss and Beccles.
Harleston is a thriving small market town on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, with a population of around 6000 people. Due to its size and rural location, it offers a variety of independent shops and services for locals and visitors alike, including a vintage emporium, teashops and cafés, and three traditional pubs. There are also restaurants and country inns a few miles away from the town, offering haute cuisine dining or more traditional country fare.
The Harleston & Waveney Festival is a 10 day family-friendly celebration of the arts in August, with performances of music, drama and poetry alongside art exhibitions and creative workshops. In the summer months, thirty local artists open their art studios as part of the annual Harleston & Waveney Art Trail. There is also the Harleston Food Festival in October. More information on local amenities and events can be found in each suite at Chameleon House.
