Welcome to Best of Suffolk’s first blog. Through our blogs we look forward to sharing with you both our passion for restoring historic buildings and our enthusiasm for providing stylish holiday cottages.

Yesterday we met delightful Natasha Newton, a talented local Suffolk artist whose work we have admired for some years. We had great pleasure in commissioning three original paintings for our cottages 6 Town Steps and Aldeburgh Cottage in Aldeburgh and can’t wait to see them.

One of the great pleasures of running Best of Suffolk is working with dedicated local craftspeople who play an important role in creating that special look and feel that our holiday cottages have.

Finding the right people to work on the holiday cottages that we own ourselves hasn’t always been easy, it has taken time, and trial and error to build the great team we now have, whether it’s for conservation-grade lime plastering or detailed carpentry work right through to the final finishes at a cottage such as inspirational artwork and the decoration. Without these people who share our vision, our properties wouldn’t be the wonderful places that they are to stay in.

Now that’s what we call good team work.
