Suffolk

Explore Suffolk’s beautiful rural countryside and stunning coastline; this region in the east of England is perfect for relaxing holidays by the sea or lazy days spent amongst unspoilt countryside.

Bring your senses to life with a break in Suffolk. There''s so much to see and do; from historical adventures and picture-postcard golden sands to festivals, events and bustling farmers markets.

Southwold Pier is one of the finest piers in Britain and definitely worth a visit. There''s great fun for all ages with the ''Under the Pier'' show and the 45 miles of Suffolk coastline offers beautiful sandy coves and rolling shingles, with wooden beach huts dotted along the sand. Try a pint of Adnams'' famous Suffolk beers from the coast or eat tasty fish and chips on the seawall at Aldeburgh.

The history and heritage of Suffolk is fascinating to discover and the region has lots of tales of Anglo Saxon Kings and Tudor Queens to tell. The 12th century fortress, Framlingham Castle, brings a colourful 800 year history to life perfectly. Discover Suffolk''s only cathedral at Bury St Edmond and just next door at St Edmondsbury Cathedral wonder around the spectacular Abbey Gardens.

Why not try some delightful Heritage Walks, which weave together stories of the Suffolk Wool Towns and give the opportunity to explore some of the region''s medieval towns such as Clare, Lavenham and Sudbury. Little has changed for some, and you''ll love the maze of cobbles, half-timbered houses that lean crazily over narrow streets and bustling markets.

A cottage break is the perfect way to explore all that the area has to offer, all located within easy reach of not only historic towns and attractions, but also the wonderful lush countryside that surrounds it. The South of Suffolk is a great place for cycling and walking, the gentle and undulating countryside is just challenging enough to appeal to all and a great way of exploring the country lanes with its quiet country roads and many footpaths. Young visitors will be suitably impressed with the range of animal parks and attractions; Jimmy''s Farm, Africa Alive and High Lodge Forest Centre cater well for family days out.

    Ref: 25649

    Well Cottage is a single-storey cottage situated in the owner’s garden, with views to the resident poultry, and just 150 yards from the cliff tops which lead down to Corton beach. The holiday cottage is ideally situated for exploring the Suffolk Heritage coastline, or enjoying the delights of Oulton Broad. Corton is just a couple miles north of Lowestoft, on the Suffolk coast. Tucked between Pleasurewood Hills theme park, Hopton and the A12, the village hugs the rapidly disappearing cliff top. The partly-ruined St Bartholomew’s Church dominates Corton, and the imposing tower can be seen from the beach and the A12. The nave is now a community hall while the 15th-century tower stands hollow and ghostly. Locals claim that the village has much history, and there is no doubt that the Second World War kept the village busy. Two men died trying to disarm a German mine in 1942; while in 1940, an Italian Fiat fighter, flown by Sergente Antonio Lazzari, was shot down near the railway station. Holidaymakers swell the village population by more than 600 each week in the summer and can be seen everywhere from the church craft fair to the car boot sale. Also the old railway has become a favourite haunt for ornithologists with sightings of the arctic warbler, long-eared owl and rough-legged buzzard and there are several bird reserves and sanctuaries in Suffolk. St Bartholomew’s church and railway track bed both give Corton a special character, as does the old gamekeeper’s cottage on the corner of Corton Long Lane. In Lowestoft you can visit the Maritime Museum, or spend a leisurely day at Somerleyton Hall and Gardens just 4 miles away. The East Anglia Transport Museum, 5 miles, is a firm favourite with many visitors. While for something more frenetic, why not take in the weekly powerboat racing at Oulton Broad (May to Sept)? Additionally there are excellent local walking and cycling routes. Shop and pub 250 yards.
