Touring holidays in Suffolk

This is a county we love with wide open spaces and chocolate box cottages, a coast that is as beautiful as it is occasionally desolate and a slower pace of life with history around every corner. A part of East Anglia, it borders Cambridge, Norfolk and the sea and like the rest of eastern England has an enticingly low rainfall. Painters through time have been inspired by its canvas and we are sure you will be too.

We treasure the timber houses and villages where time has slipped past, the farm shops, abundant arts and crafts, unspoilt high streets, the acres of cropped fields and the many long estuaries dotted with old mills and yachts. Individuality lurks around every corner - from the Maggie Hambling beach sculpture to the House in the Clouds. Our hotel choices are full of delights from wonderful boutique hotels to ancient inns.

Our tailor made touring itineraries will give you a wonderful view of this outstanding rural canvas. Just send us a request!

Our Suffolk highlights

Flatford Mill

This 18th Century watermill on the River Stour was a Constable favourite. No less beautiful in real life, its tranquility is well preserved.

Included in our Tailor-made holiday


Suffolk is a county of cottages - often but not always constructed of wood with thatch or old tiled roofs. Many have lovely village settings and pretty gardens.

Included in our Tailor-made holiday


The region is famed for its production of some of Britain’s best beers. Spot the now defunct sign of hops drying by these roof vents.

Included in our Tailor-made holiday


There’s little more idyllic than Lavenham with its many half-timbered medieval cottages. Visit the Guildhall & Little Hall, built with wealth from the wool trade.
