Favourite place to visit in Suffolk: I love taking the family up to the old fishing town of Aldeburgh just 45mins from The Suffolk Escape. It is perfect for a walk along the beach, visit the galleries and boutique shops along the high street and pick up some freshly caught seafood from the fisherman’s huts for supper. We have two favourite spots to eat…either fish and chips on the sea wall from the award winning shop or a lazy lunch at the Brudenell Hotel’s Grill right on the seafront with huge windows to take in the view.

Top tip for people visiting us: Be prepared for your holidays plans to change…most people come with great plans of things to do but these slowly evaporate as guests find our accommodation so tranquil and relaxing that they do not go very far from their accommodation! Kersey and Lavenham are nearby and make a good short trip out or just take a stroll around our 3.5mile circular farm walk.

Favourite place to visit in Suffolk: Southwold for it’s charm, character and the fantastic ‘Under the Pier Show’ on the pier. We love to take a stroll from Southwold to Walberswick, and even down to Dunwich, along the stunning coastal path before fully immersing ourselves in this quintessentially British seaside town.

Top tip for people visiting us: Make the most of the opportunity to relax. Whatever that means for you – whether walking along the country footpaths on the doorstep of the farm, watching the wildlife, reading a good book in front of the fire or on the outdoor sofas, enjoying the tranquility, eating well from the many local, independent producers on offer or soaking in the hot tub. But be prepared – and be guilt-free in – not going surprisingly far from the farm!

Favourite place to visit in Suffolk: The Great House in Lavenham for a fantastic meal out and a walk along the River Stour from Dedham to Flatford Mill. If the weather’s warm have a paddle in the river or even a swim!

Top tip for people visiting us: Visit Laurie the Fishmonger. Parked in his van behind The Kings Head in Hadleigh on a Thursday morning for the freshest, tastiest fish anywhere! He’s very friendly and can always give suggestions on the best way to cook it.

Top tip for people visiting us: Hire bikes and take in the beautiful countryside.

Favourite place to visit in Suffolk: Anywhere along the coast. At night time, we love to go to Felixstowe and watch the port in action.

Top tip for people visiting us: Travel around and visit the stunning countryside, and definitely take a trip to the coast.

Favourite place to visit in Suffolk: Snape Maltings. I love wandering around the various art galleries to see the work of local artists, stopping for tea and cake, and checking out what’s on in the concert hall.

Top tip for people visiting us: Take your boots and binoculars so you can do the walk from Snape to Eyke and back.

Favourite place to visit in Suffolk: It has to be Lavenham! Beautiful medieval wool town steeped in history with ancient half timbered buildings leaning precariously against one another. Great for mooching about and enjoying the many little independent shops and charming tea rooms. Extremely popular so can get very busy during the high season, but well worth the short drive.

Top tip for people visiting us: Just to relax and enjoy your wonderful home from home accommodation. Take in the stunning views of the surrounding countryside, walk, read a good book, take a dip in your own personal hot tub and thoroughly soak up the peace and quiet! Maybe a trip to the nearby lovely market town of Hadleigh or perhaps lunch at The Bell Inn in Kersey, a gorgeous 14th century family run pub in a picture postcard village!
