Suffolk Coastal and rural holiday retreats

Suffolk: a place to unwind. Situated in the east of England, Suffolk is a county filled with natural beauty, bordered by 50 miles of glorious coastline and topped with breathtaking skies. Its charming villages and medieval towns draw in artists and writers, while its bounty of great produce and restaurants make it a special spot for foodies. In Suffolk you can visit the Home of Horseracing, explore Constable Country, immerse yourself in history in Bury St Edmunds, or simply spend long, lazy days by the sea. You can do as much as you want, or as little. Sometimes, in a place this rich and beautiful, just being is pleasure enough.

And where better than to “just be” than a lovely country cottage?

Your own place for a week or two, where you can shut your door on the world after a rewarding day exploring and enjoying the best that Suffolk has to offer; or just savour for its own sake. Letting the world carry on without you, just for a while.

Suffolk Hideaways are pleased and proud to offer a fantastic and ever-growing selection of cottages throughout this glorious county – from little places, perfect for a romantic weekend for two, to larger properties, perfect for family holidays. The cottages – and locations – vary; but what they all offer is a warm welcome, and a chance to let your hair down and relax, in total comfort.

Many of our cottages are dog-friendly, suitable for young children, or perfectly located for a range of activities such as sailing, birdwatching, cycling or walking. We also offer many short-stay opportunities: sometimes a weekend break, somewhere beautiful, is all it takes to recharge those batteries.

To let our experienced staff take the hassle out of finding the right property for you, just call 01728 666300 to let them know what you’re looking for – and we’ll take it from there. Our offices – in Aldeburgh – are open six days a week.

Your Hideaway heaven awaits...

What our guests say about us

We very recently returned from a stay at Ayres End Studio. The property was immaculate with everything provided for and of the highest quality. We had a memory foam mattress, an extremely large TV and even a fully stocked kitchen! We were blown away when we arrived. Although everything was exceptional, the best was yet to come. It has snowed hard through the night on the day we were due to leave, while we attempted to leave on time we had to abandon our car at the bottom of Kersey’s steep hill. Ayres End owners helped us unpack the abandoned car, insisted on looking after us and allowed us back into the Studio for as long as we liked until the roads were cleared. We were taken aback by their kindness and as hosts they are a true credit to Suffolk Hideaways.
