The East Anglia region
Looking to get away from it all? Then come and discover the beauty and tranquillity of Suffolk and Norfolk, with their old-fashioned seaside resorts, Blue Flag beaches, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, charming villages and market towns, and miles of footpaths to explore.
There are some great days out in Suffolk. The beaches can be enjoyed all year round and RSPB Minsmere and Dunwich Heath offer access to rare birdlife and acres of heathland. Southwold's iconic pier and lighthouse are a great draw and there are golf courses, sailing clubs, day cruises of the Southern Broads, walking, cycling and crabbing on offer! Suffolk is also a haven for the arts and hosts, among other events, the Aldeburgh Music Festival, and Norfolk, with its miles of stunning sandy beaches, cliff-top walks along the North Norfolk Coastal Path, the attractions of Cromer Pier, pretty seaside villages and market towns, as well as a multitude of stately homes – Blickling, Felbrigg and Holkham Hall to name just a few – will not disappoint for a self-catering holiday!
You may have heard of the famous Regency seaside town of Southwold, home of the colourful beach huts, the iconic lighthouse, lovely restored Victorian pier and of Adnams Brewery, but not of Reydon? Just a mile outside of Southwold, and an easy walk or cycle ride from the beach, is Reydon village - an ideal base for a holiday cottage, out of the hustle and bustle of Southwold, but close enough to enjoy its many attractions.
Reydon boasts two shops, the excellent Randolph Hotel, serving good food and locally produced Adnams Ales and a children's play area. There are plenty of good walks nearby and Reydon Woods, known for its springtime carpet of bluebells, is worth a visit, as is Henham Park, which hosts the annual Latitude Music Festival and Grand Henham Steam Rally.
