Living at one of Redrow’s new homes in Suffolk means that you’ll call one of England’s most beautiful regions “home”. Suffolk has borders with Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and (less conventionally) the North Sea. This places it within a highly desirable region of the UK. Suffolk is predominantly a low-lying county, but there are also plenty of hills to the west. The 50 miles of Suffolk coastline is rightly famous, and this coastal setting means the town of Felixstowe has one of the biggest container ports in the whole of Europe. It’s a very varied landscape.
The north of Suffolk gives you good access to Norwich, while the south gives you great access to Ipswich. These are the two largest urban centres within the region. However, Suffolk’s transport links to London and the Midlands are excellent as well. Redrow’s housing developments offer exactly the sort of quality that you’d expect from life within this wonderful county. Our new builds in Suffolk possess timeless Arts and Crafts aesthetics, yet they also possess “fabric first” interiors that are A-rated for energy efficiency. They have ultrafast broadband too. We’re passionate about sustainability, which is why we try to build communities, not just houses. From wildlife-friendly gardens and eco-friendly accessories in our homes, to creating green spaces at each development, you can rest easy that you’re buying green with Redrow.
Enjoying Your New Home in Suffolk
When you’re not at home, Suffolk also has lots to enjoy. Suffolk has a wide range of beautiful natural environments. As a result of its famous coastline, the options for waterfront attractions are vast. There are piers, lighthouses and beaches galore. Your kids will love spending time at all of these different locations. There are also other dedicated child-friendly destinations like Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park, or Subtropical Swimming Paradise. Suffolk is great for kids!
For lovers of the natural world, Suffolk Coast and the Heaths Area of Natural Beauty span over 400 kilometres. This includes a total of three National Treasure Reserves. For wildlife enthusiasts, there’s Orford Ness. RSPB Minsmere and RSPB Havergate Island are great places to spend some time, as is the coastal gem that is Dunwich Heath. Inland highlights include Brandon Country Park, Sutton Hoo, the 12th-century Framlingham Castle, the Broads, Thetford Forest, Dedham Vale and Rendlesham Forest. There’s an abundance of places to explore.
The largest town in Suffolk is Ipswich, which is also famous for being one of the oldest towns in England. Ipswich sits on the River Orwell, and has some great cultural draws, like Ipswich Museum. Following Ipswich is Bury St. Edmunds, which stands out for being the home of the only cathedral in Suffolk. This cathedral is St. Edmundsbury. Bury St. Edmunds can also lay claim to having the only surviving Regency playhouse in the UK, so people who love history and heritage definitely need to pay it at least one visit.
Perfectly-Placed New Homes in Suffolk
Suffolk isn’t “spoiled” by the presence of motorways, but you can rely on the M11 and A11 when it comes to travel to London. However, there are also plenty of other A roads that allow residents to move around the towns and coastal region. The A14 lets you move between the twin hubs of Ipswich and Bury St. Edmunds in just 30 mins. Coupled with the A12 and the A14, you can also readily drive between Lowestoft and Felixstowe. Train travel brings a lot of extra options too. There are 15 train stations in operation. The Greater Anglia line provides a service from Lowestoft to London in 3 hours, but it’s just over an hour to get to the capital via a train from Ipswich, or 2 hours from Bury St. Edmunds. The bus services are on hand too and, whilst there aren’t any airports in Suffolk, you’d hardly realise. Stansted is reachable from Ipswich within just 1 hour, and Norwich airport is even closer. Then there’s Southampton Airport, which is just 1 hour 40 minutes from southern Suffolk. You can reach other countries with ease!
