The countryside around Claydon is set among low-lying hills and lies next to the River Gipping. It is close to the intersection of the A14 and the B1113. Between the A14 and the B1113 (former A45) is the Ipswich to Ely Line.
The village offers two pubs for the traveller and locals, The Crown and The Greyhound. There is also a Bakers & Sandwich Bar "Freshfills", post office, fish & chip shop, hotel, hairdressers, car dealership and travel agency. The butchers closed in 199. It also has a primary school and Claydon High School. There are regular bus connections to Ipswich, Bramford and Stowmarket from the centre of the village.
The village now has a new Community Cafe that serves hot and cold drinks, home made cakes and also a wonderful cream tea (which needs to be pre booked). It is family run and the service is very friendly and welcoming. They have a Facebook page - The Community Cafe. It is well worth a visit.
At the top of the hill on Lane can be found the Church of St Peter, which has been partially restored. It is one of the few pre-Norman churches in Suffolk. The interior is attractive with a very fine wooden fan vaulted ceiling.
