Holidays in Suffolk, England

Lovely Suffolk offers some of England's most serene scenery - a largely flat landscape of low lying heath, woodland and vast wetland areas home to some of the country's most unique and elusive wildlife - in addition to a long, largely sandy coastline littered with pretty, low key resorts. Inland the patchwork of woods, farms and low hills is interspersed with attractive, historic towns such as Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket and to the north the vast, ethereal waterworld of the Broads fans out, on into Norfolk. Across this lovely, undervisited county are a range of great eco-friendly places to stay and the varied landscape of the county makes it perfect for all manner of holidays. Have a look at some of the best below:

The Angel Inn is a lovely, traditional country pub in Stoke by Nayland, in the heart of the Dedham Vale AONB. There are six boutique bedrooms, all with en-suite and beautifully styled to reflect the history of this Grade II listed building.
