Holiday Cottages in Suffolk
Spectacular scenery, a long sunny coastline and historic market towns combined with friendly locals and gorgeous food mean that Suffolk is a county that you'll love discovering.
On the Suffolk coast you have Southwold, perhaps the quintessential English seaside town, complete with colourful beach huts, proud lighthouse and bustling pier. Further south is cultural Aldeburgh, and the renowned Snape Maltings concert venue, where you can hear and see some of the best musicians in the world play in intimate surroundings.
Inland you’ll find Suffolk’s famous wool towns of Lavenham and Kersey, recognisable from a thousand postcards and chocolate boxes, while Bury St Edmunds will have history lovers in raptures. Suffolk is also home to RSPB Minsmere, the charity’s flagship reserve and one of the most important wildlife habitats in the world. It’s in the middle of the Suffolk Heritage Coast; one of two AONB’s that the county is blessed with.
There is plenty to discover in Suffolk. In Southwold, you can relax on the beach, wander around the charming town, and even take a tour of Adnams Brewery, undoubtedly an excellent choice.
The county is also blessed with an abundance of heritage properties. Ickworth House is a Georgian Palace, now under the safe keeping of the National Trust and offers an enchanting day out for all the family. Orford Castle is another building packed with history, allowing you to lose yourself in a warren of passageways and secret chambers.
Suffolk is also home to Sutton Hoo, a famous Anglo-Saxon burial site which is regarded as one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Or if something a little more energetic is on your agenda, why not take a trip to Newmarket Racecourse for a day at the races.
With over 400 cottages throughout Suffolk, we are confident our selection of Visit England cottages will whet your appetite for a self-catering break.
