Take a Break in East Anglia

24 April 2017

East Anglia may be a mission to get to with few fast roads piercing the furthest reaches of the beautiful coastal counties of Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex, but the effort is well rewarded by that special feeling of getting ‘away from it all’.

This largely unspoilt corner of Britain offers a breath-taking variety of countryside; from open heath and wild marshland, to the unique watery Broads and 500 miles of magnificent coastline, with stunning dune-backed beaches, shingle spits and undiscovered creeks to explore. Add a rolling landscape punctuated by sleepy thatched villages, pretty market towns and historic houses, the region has much to offer walkers and cyclists and those seeking refuge from modern day life.

Make your East Anglian sojourn even more memorable by staying at one of these fabulous pubs with rooms and be wowed by the food, the super comfortable rooms and their individual charm.

Legendary Essex hostelry offering first-class hospitality, a cracking bar, delicious modern food, timbered rooms or contemporary suites with Thames views.
