The East Anglia region
Suffolk is one of the U.K. s unspoilt counties, no motorways or airports. Quiet countryside and beautiful beaches, miles of countryside walks and a bird watchers heaven. All this within less than 2 hours from London.
The countryside is gentle and accessible and the small market towns are a delight to visit. The Suffolk Heritage Coast has something for all visitors from the celebrated seaside charm of Southwold and Walberswick, to the heaths and wildness of Dunwich and Minsmere. The famous Snape Maltings for wonderful concerts and operas is less than 20 miles away.
Suffolk has some of the best food producers in the country and many of the excellent pubs and restaurants make use of this produce in their menus.
As the driest part of Britain, Suffolk is an ideal destination for walkers and cyclists as the countryside is gentle and unspoilt. Motoring is also a good way to explore as the roads are quiet.
There are places to visit to suit all tastes from wildlife parks, and activity centres for children to golf courses and pretty villages with historic buildings and churches for those seeking a quieter experience
Moat Farm is situated on the edge of the pretty village of Fressingfield, surrounded by wheat fields and meadows. Less than 20 miles from the Heritage coast and less than an hour from the historic cities of Norwich and Colchester. The Norfolk Broads are within easy reach and the spectacular North Norfolk coast is about an hour and a half away. This is a great centre to explore the beautiful region of East Anglia.

"A wonderful and peaceful property - perfect for recharging your batteries"
The Cart Lodge is a great property - it has been decorated to a high standard and has two very comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen is well-equipped and there is a lovely garden to enjoy the sunshine and peaceful atmosphere. The view from the lodge over the fields is food for the soul.
The owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. John and Lorna went out of their way to offer us everything we needed for our stay.
We had a marvellous time.

"The perfect chill out getaway!"
Stayed here for a week in May and had such a relaxing time. John and Lorna the owners who lived in the farm couldn't have been more helpful and accomodating, giving advice on where to go and what to eat etc. The barn itself is 18th century but the fittings are of the highest quality, it's beautiful inside. There's plenty to do in the area, the coast, Aldeburgh and Southwold, but we found just the peace and quiet, the pace of life, meant we just chilled out and relaxed. By the way the food at the local pub is amazing. All in all a brilliant break.
