Stunning countryside and heathland is the making of Suffolk
Suffolk is based in the east of England and boasts a rich and varied history. From the dramatic coastline in East Suffolk, to the fields and fens of the west, the county has long been an inspiration for both literary and artistic greats.
Flatford Mill in East Bergholt is a popular tourist attraction, having been the muse for John Constable's most famous work, The Hay Wain. The surrounding area is peppered with pretty villages and stunning countryside offering beautiful views.
In Newmarket, you find the home of horse racing. Breeding studs, stables and two large race courses make the town a focal point for the sport. It also had strong royal connections, having been home to Charles I when he was imprisoned during the English Civil War.
Bury St Edmunds boasts the ruins of St Edmunds Abbey, while there are several stately homes, castles and gardens to visit across Suffolk. The county's craggy coastline and beaches offers enjoyable days out to the seaside.
One of the most desirable elements of living in Suffolk is being in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by miles of countryside, offering a truly relaxing retirement.
