The East Anglia region
East Anglia is a beautiful part of England with plenty to offer visitors. There are miles of coastline to explore in the counties of Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk with many outstanding beaches and interesting sea side towns along the North Sea Coast.
Inland there are many historic towns and villages and miles of tranquil countryside for walking, cycling or horse riding. The landscape is varied and includes arable crops, animal farming, marshes, forestry and beaches. Across the region there are castles and stately homes waiting to be explored along with many other tourist attractions such as zoos, farms, museums and cathedrals Larger towns and cities include Norwich and Cambridge where a mixture of history and shopping awaits.
Newmarket in Suffolk is the home of horse of horseracing. There are lots of meetings during the flat season and during the Summer the race course hosts 'Newmarket Nights' where you can enjoy a concert by famous acts after the racing has finished. Newmarket is also home to the National Horseracing Museum. In the winter you can go racing at Higham, Ampton or Marks Tey point to point courses.
East Anglia is home to Constable Country. Rowing boats can be hired out at Dedham or Flatford, a great way to admire the scenery painted by John Constable and afterwards try a tasty cream tea at the National Trust shop.

"Home from home"
Had a fabulous few days at Owls Nest. Everything we needed plus welcoming refreshments and biscuits in the accommodation on arrival. Bright and modern very comfortable and in a lovely location. We explored all the Suffolk coast from our base as everywhere was in easy driving distance. The peace and quiet was wonderful. Definitely worth a revisit. Thanks Clare xx

"Fabulous rural retreat"
Lovely and quiet, walked to nearby towns and drove to further places. Car is handy but not a necessity if you have everything you need with you.

I can't rate our stay here highly enough. The owners are welcoming and friendly, the property itself has everything you need for a perfect self catering stay. You can't help but wind down because it is such a peaceful, tranquil place. We will definitely be back.

"Perfect place for a peaceful break"
Claire and Chris couldn't have been more helpful. Owls Nest is the perfect place for a couple looking for a peaceful break. In the middle of the Suffolk countryside sharing the property with horses, dogs, chickens and ducks - our dog was made as welcome as we were! Lots of cycle rides along quiet country lanes and several pubs worth dropping in. Close to Woodbridge, Framlingham, Southwold and lots more. We will be going back - hopefully before too long. Thanks again.

"If we had made a list of all we wanted relating to accommodation before coming, Owls nest would have ticked every box."
Very comfortable and roomy accommodation set in a rural location with beautiful views and great walking on our doorstep. It was wonderful to have the horses, dog, cats and ducks and chickens around. Our hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and made us very welcome. Perfectly located for day trips to a wide variety of places such as RSPB Minsmere, Woodbridge, Southwold, etc. We would really recommend Owls Nest and are hoping very much to make a return visit in the not too distant future.

"Comfortable and spacious in peaceful location"
Owl's Nest is much bigger than it looks on the photographs. It is set in idyllic countryside and it was quiet even when there were people staying in the barn below this one - you couldn't hear them at all. The owners were welcoming, helpful and friendly. Milk and biscuits were provided on arrival, as well as tea and cafetiere coffee.
There was loads of outside space and a particularly lovely secluded seating area by the pond.
I would like to go back sometime, and it's not often I want to return to the same place.
