Where to stay
If you are looking for a rural and idyllic holiday destination within the UK, then we wholly suggest checking out Suffolk, which is a lovely rural area with plenty to do, with utterly stunning Suffolk holiday cottages that have some real history due to being painted by John Constable, who was a very famous painter and artist of his time whose influence can be seen even to this day!

Grab a pint down the Crown

Visit the Munnings Museum
This is a genuine must for any visitor to Suffolk who loves art and in specific the work of Sir Alfred Munnings. His home in Dedham, now a museum has a changing selection of 150 of his paintings and illustrations from its substantial collection that are hung chronologically throughout the 8 rooms of his lovely house where he lived and worked after the war. Sensational pictures of the landscape and life around the county at that time.
