There is no doubting that once the snowdrops start come appear, our thoughts are never far away from our next Summer holiday! Thoughts start drifting towards lazy, hazy days on the beach, warm evening walks and eating alfresco. Not to mention all the summertime goodies that come with it… ice-cream, no school, days out, BBQs, time off from work… and how to spend it!
Summer in Suffolk is as beautiful as it is magical. As the temperatures rise and the sun comes out, town centres shine with vibrancy. The sea sparkles upon our beautiful beaches, outside dining comes alive and the countryside positively beams with activity.
Sea and sandcastles
With stunning beaches stretching along the Suffolk Coast, you’re never far from the sea for inexpensive days out. From the busy and popular Aldeburgh and Southwold beaches to the lesser known beaches at Kessingland and Covehithe. Shingle or sand, off the beaten-track or surrounded by vibrant town centres, you’ll be spoilt for choice where to make those seaside memories!
Be the envy of other beach-dwellers with a beach hut! The Pink House is a wonderful spacious holiday home in Southwold, sleeping up to 12 with the added option of booking Windrush beach hut – great for large families or families holidaying together!

Music festivals galore!
The popular Latitude Festival returns to Suffolk for it’s 14th year. A family-friendly festival with top music acts, comedy, cabaret, theatre and arts areas. This year sees main acts Liam Gallagher, The Chemical Brothers, Keane, Haim and The Lumineers, to name but a few – but hurry, tickets sell out fast!
Suffolk doesn’t host just one music festival though… add into the heady summer season a month’s residency for the Snape Proms, the Maverick Festival, Bardfest and FolkEast and Suffolk is really starting to grow as a summer music destination to be seen at!
For a little rock-star luxury during your stay, Thymblethorpe sits on a private estate with the added bonus of complimentary use of the indoor swimming pool, gym and off road parking.

Parks and recreation
Whether you like the thrill of adventure and theme parks like Pleasurewood Hills and Go Ape! or family days out at farm parks Jimmy’s Farm and Easton Park Farm, summer is made for these days out.
