Cognatum’s two Suffolk estates can be found in Aldeburgh and Long Melford. Elegant, romantic Suffolk, with its long stretches of coastline and heathland, enjoys an air of remoteness. Yet the towns of Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds provide plentiful restaurants, shops and leisure activities; Aldeburgh is a vibrant pocket of culture, renown for its annual classical music festival; and Newmarket Racecourse stands on the eastern border with Cambridgeshire. An historical lack of stone in the area has led to many buildings being constructed with brick and flint, an unusual but charming local architectural quirk. There is excellent walking and cycling in the Suffolk countryside, and the Anglo-Saxon burial grounds of Sutton Hoo lie near Woodbridge. The county is well-served by the A14, and Stansted is the nearest large airport.
