The East of England comprises the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Lincolnshire, one of nine official region of England. Not only is the East of England a vital gateway to Northern Europe, it is a beautiful region of coastal towns, broad beaches, unspoilt natural landscapes, rich heritage and a charming, unique character.

The East of England offers a magnificent portion of rural England, which lends itself perfectly to a range of outdoor pursuits. Mountain biking, horse riding and walking, both short strolls after a pub lunch and long full day treks, are hugely popular activities to enjoy from a holiday cottage in the East of England. Despite their popularity, walking cycling and riding holidays never put you amongst the crowds, meaning that the endless peace available can be enjoyed to the full.

East England also offers not only 250 miles of coastal waters, but also huge tracts of inland water, like the Norfolk Broads or Nene Park in Cambridgeshire, meaning that those wishing to experiment or learn any water sport will be in their personal nirvana. Sailing is a huge attraction to the East of England, and there are many holiday cottages and rental accommodation in East England situated perfectly to take full advantage of the sailing facilities. Rowing, canoeing, water skiing, powerboat driving, wind surfing, white water canoe slalom (Bedford), jet skiing and surfing are just a few of the water sports available from self catering accommodation in the East of England, and I have not even mentioned the beaches!

Each of the counties in the East of England is adorned with fine golf courses, so there area plenty of rounds to be had, although tuition, practice ranges and special golf holidays are also easy to organise.

Peaceful, cosy cottage retreat so handy for visiting the Suffolk coast.

5 of 5
The cottage is neat, clean, comfortable and well maintained. It’s well equipped with everything needed for a short stay. Lovely weather encourages visits to Warberswick, Southwold, Aldeburgh and Snape Maltings all just a short drive away with the cottage lovely to come back to and sit in the well kept garden and reflect on the day. Saxmundham, just up the road, is handy for shopping and easy to navigate. There are also some nice footpaths in order to explore the a local patch which is predominantly farmland. Owned and run by a very friendly family help or advice is available on the premises if required. The perfect place to get away from it all and relax.

This is the best property of its type that we have holidayed in. The owner is welcoming and thoughtful about all aspects of the property. We had a most relaxing and enjoyable stay and will certainly plan to visit this lovely barn again.
