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.

"Good location, no phone signal"
This was prefect height for me at 5foot 3, but unfornately my boyfriend is 5 11, and several features caused him some problems. The shower over the bath meant that he couldn't use it. The sloppin… More
I am not sure which network this customer used but we have never had the comment of 'no signal' before. We use Vodafone which has an excellent signal and I also know that O2 and Orange do have some signal especially from the elevated position of Owls Nest but I can not comment on all networks. With regards to the slopping roof, the main living area does have a high ceiling but maybe the ground floor accommodation 'Paddock Barn' would have been more suitable in this case as it has a large walk in shower and regular ceilings throughout.

"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

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.
