A beautiful spot along the River Orwell, hidden down a single-track road. Pin Mill is serene in the morning as the sun rises, bustling with life during the day as people visit the historic boats and popular pub; and then everything becomes tranquil as the sun sets in the evening.

A small market town with streets of wonky tudor buildings, Lavenham is home to the stunning Guildhall and the spooky De Vere House, a house more more commonly recognised as the location for Godric’s Hollow for the Harry Potter films.

The one and only cathedral in Suffolk, a wonder to behold inside and out. Don't miss the colourful stained glass windows and ceilings inside St Edmundsbury Cathedral and the surrounding Abbey Gardens, dotted with the ruins of the Benedictine Abbey.

A wonderful retreat in the heart of Ipswich, filled with small woodlands, green open spaces and the round pond.
