With a Luxury Lodge

Suffolk is a surprisingly large county nestled between Norfolk and Essex. It is nationally important as the home of horse racing with the national stud at Newmarket, and where our busiest container port is situated at Felixstowe.

The Abbey of Bury St Edmunds


The abbey of Bury St Edmunds used to be the second largest in England, and the medieval town which sprung up next to it is still very evident today in the attractive pattern of streets and notable buildings.
