The Suffolk coast on England's eastern shores encompasses three National Nature Reserves whose wild sandy stretches are a vanishing refuge for many rare birds and butterflies. While this coastal area is characterized by pink cottages, the inland Suffolk Wool Towns proudly bear the architecture of 'England's Best Preserved Mediaeval Villages'. The River Stour that winds through this region also boasts a unique bit of history with Flatford Mill as its hallmark and sheep and cattle quietly grazing.
Each town in Suffolk has its own 'personality' to discover—the bustling city of Ipswish can trace its history back to the Stone Age and is home to the astounding Christchurch Mansion, Aldeburgh boasts the finest fish and chips, and Lowestoft is a popular holiday town with lovely beaches. Explore the lavender countryside of Suffolk from a Suffolk vacation cottage or Suffolk vacation rental.
