Whether you like home comforts or luxurious grandeur, classic style or quirky chic, the Suffolk Coast has the perfect accommodation for you.
The heritage coast is full of beautiful old buildings with fascinating histories, and Woodbridge’s Hill House Hall is no exception. This double-Wealden hall dates back to the 14th century, and retains many of its original features, including a Tudor wall painting and a rare example of a merchant’s mark. However, Hill House Hall is far from medieval when it comes to comfort. In 2012, the soporific beds, cooked breakfasts and warm hospitality of the owner Sarenka earned Hill House Hall a place on the Sunday Times Top 100 Hotels in the World.
The Suffolk Coast has an abundance of wildlife, and breathtaking landscapes, and perhaps the best way to enjoy the natural delights of the Suffolk Coast is by camping! Alde Garden campsite, situated in the picturesque village of Sweffling, offers a rather different kind of camping experience. Forget soggy two-man tents; Alde Garden offers a range of unusual accommodation, from tipis and Mongolian yurts to a traditional Gypsy caravan.
The Suffolk Coast also boasts some of the most striking contemporary accommodation in the UK. The Dune House in Thorpeness and The Balancing Barn in Thorington are two fascinating holiday homes created by Living Architecture, a social enterprise offering unique rental accommodations. The Balancing Barn catilevers across the landscape, providing panoramic views of the woods, ponds and meadows, and from the living room of the Dune House you can walk straight out onto the beach. Ingenious and playful, these two buildings combine art with comfort to create an extraordinary experience.
For a fairytale holiday on the Suffolk Coast, why not stay in The House in the Clouds? This weird and wonderful accommodation in the heart of Thorpeness was once a water tower, and was first disguised as a house in the 1920s, by the Scottish dandy Stuart Ogilvie. Now a fully operational and wonderfully comfortable holiday home, The House in the Clouds offers accommodation unlike any other, in a cottage 70ft off the ground.
