Discover history and quaint villages with Suffolk holiday lettings
Suffolk is one of England’s largest counties and also one of its most picturesque. With rural landscapes and historic towns and villages, plus many lovely nature reserves and an extensive coastline, the region is truly a a joy to explore.
This part of England remains relatively untouched by tourists, making it the ideal destination for anyone wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Attractions such as Orford Castle, Bury St Edmunds Abbey and small towns such as Lavenham and Long Melford are all waiting to be discovered when you book a Suffolk holiday cottage.
How to get to Suffolk
As Suffolk is a predominately rural area, there are no airports within the county itself. However, proximity to London makes it relatively easy to reach Suffolk holiday lettings by flying. London Stansted is the closest London airport, situated around an hour away, though visitors can also use Heathrow, Gatwick and London Luton. Norwich International Airport is also an option. From the airport, you can reach Suffolk holiday lettings by public transport. However, it’s much more convenient to hire a letting vehicle, as Suffolk is a vast county and its sights are spread over quite a large area.
Weather in Suffolk
Somebody forgot to tell Suffolk that England’s weather is supposed to be overcast and rainy. The county receives more sunshine and less rain than elsewhere in the country. If you book your holiday letting during the summer, you can generally expect blue skies and warm, pleasant temperatures. Winters are typically mild, while spring and autumn bring agreeable temperatures and clear days.
Attractions in Suffolk
Lace up some comfortable shoes and get moving, because there’s plentyto see in Suffolk. Start your adventure in Bury St Edmunds, a historic market town that has around 1,000 years of history under its belt.
One of the the town’s best attractions is the internationally renowned Abbey Gardens, a stunning series of gardens built on the site of the old Benedictine Abbey. Bury St Edmunds Cathedral overlooks a rose garden, an aviary, a play area and some 20,000 plants in the central space alone. As this is a market town, make sure you visit the Bury St Edmunds Weekly Street Market, which actually takes place twice a week.
Elsewhere, take a stroll around beautiful Lavenham, a well-preserved medieval town with more than 300 timber-framed buildings dating back to the 15th century. The best way to see the town is on foot. Walking around, you’ll pass attractions such as the Church of St Peter and St Paul, which dates back to 1530, and the filming locations for such productions as Witchfinder General, Lovejoy and Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part I.
The 1165-built Orford Castle is another very well-preserved Suffolk landmark. Located just outside Ipswich, it is a small but fascinating slice of history, also affording great views of Orford Ness.
Suffolk’s annual events
Suffolk hosts many great events throughout the year, and with a bit of luck there’ll be one taking place during your stay in your Suffolk holiday cottage. These events cover everything from horse racing to food and outdoor pursuits.
Newmarket Racecourse is one of the most famous in the country, hosting many races between April and November. If you can, try and attend the Newmarket July Festival. The premier meet of the year is a very stylish and fun affair. Dress smartly and enjoy a few glasses of champagne over the course of the three-day event.
Immerse yourself in Suffolk’s great outdoors at the Suffolk Walking Festival, which takes place between May and June each year. The festival consists of group walks of varying athletic difficulty and setting. Walk along the coast, through towns and villages, in the countryside, perhaps even with your dog by your side. You can choose a gentle 1-6km stroll, a mid-length 8-16km trek or really place yourself among the elite walkers in the country by participating in one of the 16km+ expeditions. Whatever you choose, you’ll love the good company and even better surroundings.
There are also many regional food and drink festivals that take place throughout the year, so keep an eye on the local festival calendar during your holiday. Locally produced cheese, fruit, vegetables and meat are all showcased, as are many delicious real ales and ciders from local brewers.
