Weekend breaks in Suffolk - Perfect for that Romantic break away

About the area

Just 90 minutes from London, Suffolk is a county home to quaint villages, ancient woodlands and beautiful coastlines and is so easy to escape to. It is a county that until very recently, was cut off from the rest of England; its beauty however, remains untouched.

Dotted amongst Suffolk are many medieval villages untouched by time. Lavenham is widely regarded as the best preserved medieval village in England. Little has changed over time in this Wool Town – the narrow, winding streets are lined with crooked houses.

Just less than six miles from Lavenham is Long Melford, another of Suffolk’s Wool Towns. Here you will find Melford Hall, a stately home open to the public, often visited by Beatrix Potter, an English author famous for creating the character Peter Rabbit.

Taking a break in Suffolk is the best way to get completely away from it all without having to travel somewhere which is too empty out of season or too full in season or just wet; we have the lowest rainfall in England and the warmest weather. The Suffolk countryside is very popular with birdwatchers and all of the discreet country lanes are ideal for cyclists of all levels.

What makes a Suffolk break so special 

At the Grove Cottages we specialise in luxurious cottages; providing guests with romantic and authentic holiday cottages set in idyllic surroundings. The cosy atmoshpere and character of these cottages is what makes a short weekend break in Suffolk so memorable.

What also makes a weekend break in Suffolk so special is the immediate feeling of being part of the countryside. As you travel around the tiny lanes and you will find beautiful medieval villages or hamlets, totally unspoilt, and with lovely footpaths meandering around the fields and valleys you invariably end up at a great pub after a country walk. It is impossible to spend a few hours cycling around and not fall in love with this spectacular area.

By providing our guests with bicycles they are able to explore the old fashioned countryside, and supplying logs and coal allow them to make a lovely open log fire for when they come home in the evening. For short breaks in Suffolk, it really doesn't get much better than this.

This forgotten area is the ideal place to unwind from hectic city life. We have many cottages available to you for idyllic weekend breaks in Suffolk.

Some of our cottages perfect for a Weekend Break in Suffolk include:

Little Cote
is a charming 16th Century Grade II listed cottage near Stowmarket in rural Suffolk. The cosy countryside cottage sleeps five and is perfect for a family getaway or a romantic weekend break in Suffolk.

For those of you who wish to discover the ancient woodlands of Suffolk on foot, Queenies is perfect. Close to the magnificent coastal town of Aldeburgh, Queenies has direct access to a beautiful nature reserve that leads to Snape, Tunstall Forest or along the beach at Aldeburgh itself.

All of our cottages that are available for relaxing weekend breaks in Suffolk allow you to explore the authentic rural atmosphere that Suffolk is famous for.

So, if you’re looking for a weekend break in a real rural location, then Suffolk is the place for you. With its romantic walks and cosy country pubs, you are sure to have a relaxing time away.
