My favourite places: Lucy Edge, founder of YogaClicks

Lucy Edge is an ex ad agency strategist turned yoga writer and entrepreneur. Her memoir Yoga School Dropout recorded her encounters with the Indian gurus of the East before she moved to East Anglia – to a Georgian farmhouse on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk.

Lucy’s award-winning carbon neutral online yoga shop, YogaClicks, is based in Norwich. It’s a gathering of the very best yogi makers from around the world, selling everything you need to live a mindful life – from eco yoga mats to sustainable meditation cushions, recycled plastic yoga leggings to soy aromatherapy candles.

Henham Yoga Studio, Henham Barns, Beccles

“Henham Yoga is everything a city girl dreams of. The creation of Sarah Rous, also an ex- Londoner, and her Australian husband Hektor, the yoga takes place in a beautiful converted barn on the Latitude estate which the couple own. Complete with Sonos sound system and state-of-the-art heating, it attracts a warm and welcoming crowd and the best yoga teachers from the Eastern Muddy counties – including Sarah herself. Watch out for dedicated Yoga Days. Re-opening in the spring, with online classes available now.” 

The Anchor, Main Street, Walberswick

“One of the best seaside pubs in the country, nothing beats a fireside meal in the bar. With fresh locally-sourced produce – some of it from their own garden, an excellent wine list and craft beers, standards are always high. Owners Mark (drinks) and Sophie Dorber (food) are usually on hand with recommendations and Mark, always a convivial host, is often to be found sharing entertaining stories from his many years in hospitality.” 

Two Magpies Bakery, 88 High St, Southwold

“Giant croissants, spicy empanadas, Madagascan brownies, wood fired pizza – it’s easy to see why there are often queues outside the Two Magpies Bakery. Founded by a female entrepreneur, there is a micro café and also a bake school at the Darsham site for those wishing to follow in self-taught baker Rebecca’s illustrious footsteps.” 

Gorleston-on-Sea Beach, Norfolk/ Suffolk border

“We love the classics – Southwold, Holkham, Wells, Blakeney – but we are closest geographically to Gorleston and its wide-open stretch of powdery sand is seriously impressive. I sent a picture of the beach on a hot summer’s day to friends and they thought I was in Miami! It has a long promenade above the beach where mutts strut their stuff accompanied by rollerblading kids and jogging locals. There’s also a bowling green, a trim trail, yacht pond and plenty of ice cream. I also love a sundowner on the terrace at the nearby Cliff Hotel where a George Michael lookalike serenades with a Careless Whisper.”
