Renowned for its exceptional churches and beautiful Tudor villages, Suffolk’s stunning medieval architecture was built on the wool trade. But the secret of Suffolk does not end there; the coast is rich with beaches and tiny creeks, and big skies are a feature of delightful undulating, unspoilt countryside which inspired great artists Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable.
Spring has arrived late in our area. Many guests visit this part of England in order to visit the surrounding country houses and gardens. The gardens are at their best in late May and early June for spectacular floral displays. Montacute House, Stourhead, Barrington Court, Tintinhull and Lytes Carey are some of the most popular.
The wonderful thing about the county is that it is largely unspoilt and undeveloped. The countryside is beautiful, fantastic for walking and yet, particularly because of its history, there are still plenty of things to see and do. There are castles galore (e.g. Ludlow, Shrewsbury, Stokesay, Whittington and nearby Powys and Chirk) and sites such as Ironbridge Gorge, a World Heritage Site.
Herefordshire has long been considered the land of ‘milk and honey’, famed for its spectacular countryside, historic market towns, picture-book black and white villages and an abundance of artisan makers, foodie destinations and a real passion for celebrating them.
Hartland Peninsula, on the North Devon coast, is a truly special Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, jutting out in the far south west corner of the UK. The scenery is spectacular, with awe-inspiring cliffs at Hartland quay which drop down to the small sandy beach. Low tide reveals magical rock pools giving an opportunity for children to spend many enjoyable hours.
