Holiday Cottages In Suffolk To Rent

Holiday Cottages in Suffolk

Suffolk may not be an obvious location for a holiday when you put it up against the giants like Cornwall or the Lake District. However, this sleepy corner of Eastern England is ideal for a break away, and the fact that it’s not overly touristy really adds to the appeal! There’s actually a lot going on in this beautiful part of the world, and as well as boasting miles of stunning coastline it’s also packed with picturesque medieval villages, some world class restaurants, and is the home of Newmarket Racecourse – the epicentre of horseracing for this part of the country.

You’ll find lots of great Suffolk holiday cottages scattered through this amazing region, so whether you’re looking for something conveniently located in the county town of Ipswich, or a rural idyll that’s perfect for a romantic getaway, you have plenty of options. Take control over your next break and experience the benefits of holiday cottages in Suffolk, from the comfy beds and roaring fires, to the amazing locations and great attractions.

Things to see on your Suffolk cottage holiday

Suffolk is very varied and includes lots of picturesque towns and villages. It even has its own stretch of coastline. This fascinating place is particularly worth visiting if you have a passion for history. Sutton Hoo, the location of the largest unearthed Saxon burial of its kind, can be found in Suffolk and is where you can experience a full-sized reconstruction of the ship’s burial chamber, visit exhibitions, and look through a window into the region’s Saxon heritage.

The county of Suffolk is also home to a number of very well preserved castles. Framlingham Castle and Orford Castle are both prime examples and are today run by English Heritage. A visit to these stunning castles is a must if you’re traveling with kids and they’re both open to visitors and include an audio tour.

As well as rolling hills, incredible historic buildings and beautiful towns and villages, Suffolk also boasts a quality coastline. The most popular beach in Suffolk is south of Claremont Pier in Lowestoft, where you’ll find lots going on, including restaurants, cafés and various amusements.

From historic hideaways to super-comfy modern properties, you’ll find some excellent holiday cottages in Suffolk, including pet friendly options, cottages with pools and cottages by the coast.
