Make holiday farmhouses or a holiday cottage in Suffolk your home away from home

Suffolk is a beautiful and highly attractive county in the south east corner of England. The flat countryside of East Anglia is dotted with charming rural villages, ancient market towns and picturesque swathes of woodland, which has made holiday cottages in Suffolk the haunt of painters, writers and those who simply want to get away from it all and enjoy the tranquillity of some of England’s most beautiful countryside. Whether you wish to take a stunning walking holiday, a quiet tour of Suffolk’s towns or are simply hoping to test your skills on a range of Suffolk golf courses, there is a cosy Suffolk holiday cottage just waiting to be discovered.

Things to do on holiday in Suffolk

Suffolk holiday cottages are a perfect base for walking, cycling and riding holidays. The flat, open countryside is ideal for walking and riding, with an expansive maze of footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways covering the whole area. Whether you are hoping to take a short, circular walk after lunch or head out into the country for a long hike or trek, you will have no problem finding a suitable circuit from self catering accommodation in Suffolk. The Angles Way and the paths of the Waveney Valley are fantastic places to start your exploration of the countryside from a Suffolk holiday cottage. There are also plenty of charming, rustic Suffolk public houses in which to get refreshed after a long day’s exercise.

There are a huge range of tourist attractions throughout Suffolk. There are important monuments ranging from the ancient, Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo to the 12th Century Framlingham Castle, and from Bawdsey Radar Station to the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum in Flixton.

The Suffolk Coast is a huge draw to self catering holiday accommodation in Suffolk. There are over 40 miles of Heritage Coast in Suffolk, plenty of charming seaside resorts and numerous sandy beaches on which to sunbathe, build sandcastles and swim. The Suffolk coast is also one of the most natural, with plenty of rare British wildlife seen in the area with reassuring regularity.

Each year, Suffolk hosts a huge range of festivals, events and shows. Suffolk’s yearly calendar is filled to bursting point with events, including the Aldeburgh Music Easter Festival in March, the Felixstowe Historic Vehicle Rally in May, the famous Suffolk Show, also in May, the Ipswich Arts Festival in June, the East of England Tennis Tournament in July and the British Open Crabbing Championships in August. The golf courses in Suffolk are particularly fun to play, as the terrain is wonderfully flat, interrupted only by water hazards and deep rough.

Places to visit on holiday in Suffolk

Minsmere has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, from its position of the Suffolk coast. Anyone with a love for nature or an interest in birds should defiantly make the trip from their self catering Suffolk accommodation to Minsmere, which is also the RSPB’s best nature reserve, with walking trails reaching through some of the most unspoilt habitats left in the region.

While visiting Suffolk, make a detour and rent Norfolk cottages.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We were very impressed with the quality of the accommodation at Dove Cart Lodge. The building is very smart inside and out, and there is a large lawned garden, which our children greatly appreciated; good for general running about, French cricket, frisbee etc. Whilst the exterior of the property looks pristine, the interior retains the wooden structure of an ancient farm building. The whole of the property has been very carefully and tastefully restored, with a keen eye on the requirements of modern families. All fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard. There is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you could need, a nicely fitted bathroom, and two generous bedrooms. The main living room area is very impressive with it’s double height ceiling with exposed structural beams. There are plenty of things to do within easy driving distance. Southwold is a wonderful seaside town; the Pier with Tim Hunkin’s ‘Under the Pier Show’ is a must see, and I also enjoyed the Adnam’s Brewery Tour. Great Fish and Chips in the Lord Nelson Pub. My children also enjoyed the ‘Maize Maze’ just outside Southwold. Aldeburgh is also a lovely Seaside town, with freshly caught fish available from it’s famous ‘fish huts’ on the beach. As well as this we enjoyed a very enjoyable day’s canoeing on the Norfolk Broads, hiring canoes from ‘The Canoe man’ at Wroxham, and the Sainsbury’s Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich is also well worth a visit. For those interested in history, Suffolk and Norfolk were home to many thousands of American airman during World War II, and we also visited a couple of small local museums which told the story of the US Airforce’s involvement in the war. This was the first time in many years that we have spent our summer holiday in the UK, and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Who needs the Dordogne, when you can have Suffolk?
