You’ll find lots of great Suffolk holiday cottages scattered through this amazing region, so whether you’re looking for something conveniently located in the county town of Ipswich, or a rural idyll that’s perfect for a romantic getaway, you have plenty of options.

Things to see on your Suffolk cottage holiday

Suffolk is very varied and includes lots of picturesque towns and villages. It even has its own stretch of coastline. This fascinating place is particularly worth visiting if you have a passion for history. Sutton Hoo, the location of the largest unearthed Saxon burial of its kind, can be found in Suffolk and is where you can experience a full-sized reconstruction of the ship’s burial chamber, visit exhibitions, and look through a window into the region’s Saxon heritage.

The county of Suffolk is also home to a number of very well preserved castles. Framlingham Castle and Orford Castle are both prime examples and are today run by English Heritage. A visit to these stunning castles is a must if you’re traveling with kids and they’re both open to visitors and include an audio tour.

As well as rolling hills, incredible historic buildings and beautiful towns and villages, Suffolk also boasts a quality coastline. The most popular beach in Suffolk is south of Claremont Pier in Lowestoft, where you’ll find lots going on, including restaurants, cafés and various amusements.

From historic hideaways to super-comfy modern properties, you’ll find some excellent holiday cottages in Suffolk, including pet friendly options, cottages with pools and cottages by the coast.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Suffolk To Rent.

Mr Booth - verified booking

"My wife and I have stayed at this cottage on a number of occasions over the years. There has been a marked deterioration in the standard of cleanliness and the quality of the fittings. Only one of the five bedside lightsl worked and there seemed to be an absence of PAT testing of electrical appliances. The gate at the entrance to the property was hanging off with a broken hinge. The doorknob to the sitting/dining room was also faulty. The tap unit over the sink in the kitchen was not fixed and makes washing up very difficult. The downstairs toilet/bathroom carpet is soiled and the shower holder is broken. I have mentioned on previous visits that the steepness of the stairs really requires a second bannister as carrying cases upstairs is quite hazardous. The upstairs shower cubicle was dirty with evidence of mould We had difficulty using the shower. The toilet was stained and lacked a lid. .A general air of neglect pervades the property. There was no mattress protector or undersheet on the double bed and only three of the four pillows had protectors on. The garden table is broken.We could not find a visitors book. Most self catering properties are welcoming. Their was nothing to welcome us to this property. To end on a more positive note. The beach is near as is the coast path."

"Wow, what a lovely old cottage to stay in. So much character and lots of history about the cottage in the information pack which is very interesting. We stayed during the time of the snow and it was great to be snowed in! The owner was very understanding and offered us to stay on if we couldn't get home which was very reassuring to know. Everything is there that you need, very well equipped and the huge fireplace with the open fire just made our stay that much better. The room doesn't get smoky from the fire if you follow the guidelines on how to light it, we got it down to a fine art and it was so cosy. The garden was great for the dog she loved it. The only thing I wished we had was a pub within walking distance during the snowy weather but then there is one just over a mile away which would be a nice walk in better weather. If you are looking for a character cottage in a great location within easy reach of the coast and for all the family this is for you. We have stayed in a lot of holiday cottages and this really is one of our top ones to stay in, we loved it."

"The cottage must have gone through a revamp since the last review as it's not at all how it was previously described. The two bathrooms must have been refitted as they are both new and beautifully clean with two nice showers. It's nice and airy throughout with a good sized kitchen and everything you'll need for a holiday. The cottage was mostly clean although a few areas were missed but it certainly didn't feel dirty or dusty. There was a bit of a 'doggy' smell in the living room but nothing too bad (we're not fond of dogs and it didn't upset us). The upstairs bathroom does have clear glass but there is a roller blind which we left down so it wasn't a problem. We would definitely recommend the cottage as it's so close to the beach (around a minute walk) and just a short walk from Lowestoft. It's lovely and private even in the garden (slightly overgrown, but a haven for wildlife). Pakefield is nice and peaceful and a million miles from the more 'chavvy' areas like Great Yarmouth."

- Ms Mcchleery, August 2018 - verified booking

"Cottage set in quiet area and well equipped, road parking for one car without any issues, as previously mentioned cottage was clean but there is a doggy smell which is noticeable every time you enter the living area, ( I am a dog lover but maybe a washable floor covering would be more suitable for rental than carpets) very close to beach and several pubs serving good food and local supermarkets. A pleasant flat walk into Lowerstoft along seafront of around 25 minutes, local buses pass within a 5 minute walk of cottage. Property condition is generally good with both bathrooms being shiny and new, however a bit of tlc and rejig to the bedrooms would make a big difference and the garden is quite overgrown in comparison to photos which made it not quite the oasis was looking forward to a bbq in. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend for relaxing break at the right price."

Alexander - verified booking

"We had an ok time and the cottage is well positioned between Aldeburgh and southwold. Sadly it was infested with flies! I estimate about 100 mostly in the kitchen. It took the three days to get rid. Not what I was expecting. So many! They didn’t seem to want to leave. As they were In the kitchen this put us off cooking. It could do with a deep clean under and around the top cupboards. Can I suggest you have a folder or book of information telling people when the binmen come, local amenities, pubs, shops etc as I didn’t see anything. Beautiful cottage but sadly would not book again."
