It’s quite an experience ambling through the picture-postcard villages, ancient forests and glorious coastline of this much-loved region, which is why a jaunt to one of the many pubs with rooms in Suffolk is one you’ll most certainly want to make.
This region of chocolate-box thatched cottages and wistful countryside has inspired many artists, including one of England’s most illustrious – John Constable. Visit Flatford and you’d be forgiven for thinking you had walked straight into one of his masterpieces – the area remaining unchanged from the very day he painted it.
Places to Visit in Suffolk
There are so many nostalgic landscapes here and the villages and towns are just as beautiful. Try Stoke-by-Nayland, Sudbury – home and inspiration to Thomas Gainsborough, and nearby Lavenham – known for its half-timbered medieval cottages. Here you’ll find some of the most stylish country pub accommodation in Suffolk. But don’t overlook the important market town of Bury St Edmunds with its impressive abbey ruins and Framlingham’s majestic castle.
Boasting 50 miles of stunning coastline, hotfooting it to one of the area’s seaside resorts is a treat indeed. Take rugged and mesmerising Aldeburgh, where you’ll find the freshest fish and chips, the ‘Scallop’ – an iconic steel sculpture, and wonderful independent shops before making your way back to your cosy pub B&B in Suffolk. Or try the popular sandy beach at Southwold featuring colourful beach huts, a traditional pier and the famous Adnams Sole Bay Brewery and Copper House Distillery, where Adnams have been brewing since 1872.
Gastro Pubs with Rooms Suffolk
With all that glorious coastline, it can only mean one thing when it comes to dining at one of the gastro pubs with rooms in Suffolk: seafood, the freshest you’ll find.
For something a little different, head to the outstanding Snape Maltings Centre to listen to world class composers, or Newmarket – the home of world-renowned thoroughbred horse racing.
With so much to do, try to enjoy the simplicity of the region. There’s nothing like a walk through mesmerising countryside, making the most of our dog friendly pubs with rooms in Suffolk.
