Walking holidays in Suffolk

Suffolk enjoys wide open spaces and chocolate box cottages, often timbered, that cluster around unspoilt village high streets where time has passed by. The coast that is as beautiful as it is occasionally desolate, is littered with long estuaries dotted with old mills and yachts and together they provide a superb backdrop for some very interesting walking and ferry hopping. Spiced with plenty of historical detail and artistic connections, the area has.a slower pace of life 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 have created our tailor-made walking holidays using our favourite and really excellent hotels and inns in the area; many are very characterful reflecting the quirkiness evident in the area. A rife arts and crafts culture ensures there is something unusual around most corners. Farm shops abound selling from the cropped fields and orchards with local inns and restaurants offering excellent local organic produce.

Our Suffolk highlights

Southwold

Just a charming seaside town with a hut lined promenade and pier and old fashioned sweet shop, Squiers. It was home to George Orwell.

Included in our Tailor-made holiday

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

Lavenham

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.

Included in our Tailor-made holiday

Long Melford

One of the great and many Suffolk wool churches - built with wool trade profits in the medieval ages, and faced with local flint. Floor brasses show costumes of the day.

Apple juice

Home to Copella apple juice, there’s an abundance of orchards and apple varieties. Cox’s Orange Pippin is one and its first letters were used in naming Copella.

Thatched cottages

Suffolk is full of cottages, many built of wood with thatched roofs using the abundant reeds available from the numerous long tidal estuaries and flats.
