Suffolk

New Homes in Suffolk 


 Sitting in the East of England on the North Sea coast, Suffolk shares a border with Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. The largest town in the county by some distance is Ipswich, which straddles the River Orwell and is just over an hour from Central London by train.

 

That could be appealing for a daily commute, while houses in Suffolk are close to everything from piers and castles, to theme parks, areas of outstanding natural beauty, and National Trust properties.

Things to see and do in Suffolk


Suffolk’s coast is littered with beaches, piers, waterfront attractions, lighthouses and nature reserves like Orford Ness. Then there are family-friendly attractions such as Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park, with other highlights including Dunwich Heath, Denes Beach and bird sanctuaries RSPB Minsmere and RSPB Havergate Island. 


There are countless ways to spend your time inland too, including visits to the magnificent 12th-century Framlingham Castle, historic Sutton Hoo and cultural draws like Ipswich Museum. Explore Dedham Vale, Rendlesham Forest and the Broads, and don’t miss Brandon Country Park. There’s also Thetford Forest and Subtropical Swimming Paradise, a fun-filled water park. 


Education


There are plenty of excellent schools across the county, with options for younger children including Ipswich’s Oaks Primary and St Mary’s Catholic Primary. Both are rated as outstanding by Ofsted. If you’re in the Bury St Edmunds area, Kennett Primary School is a good option, while Maidstone and Causton Infant and Junior Schools are a strong choice run by the Seckford Education Trust in Felixstowe. 


Suffolk transport links


With a host of bus, train and community transport services operating throughout the county, places in southern Suffolk like Ipswich are even commutable to London. There aren’t any motorways in this rural part of the country, which offers a network of A roads for getting around. This includes the A12 and A14, which connect Ipswich to places like Bury St Edmunds, Lowestoft and Felixstowe


The Suffolk property scene


Suffolk has a strong property market, with house prices similar to the UK average but tending to rise faster. The popularity of Ipswich as a commuter town has helped with this, as well as houses right next to good schools such as the private 3 and 4 bedroom family homes you can find just off Felixstowe’s High Street. 


Whether that sounds like the area for you, or you’d like to be somewhere like the village of Red Lodge just outside Bury St Edmunds, don’t forget to enquire about offers such as our Movemaker scheme when you contact us about your new home.
