Find cottages in SuffolkVisit 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.
