Away from work

It’s not all about work.  Life in East Suffolk and North Essex has something for everyone.

This area, with its vibrant towns, quaint villages and secluded coastal retreats, provides a wide range of housing and leisure opportunities.

Housing options are numerous, from stylish urban apartments to secluded rural hideaways and everything in between.  You are sure to find something that suits you here to make your home.

There is an excellent choice of both state and private schools in the region along with great higher education and university options.

When you want the big city experience, London is a maximum of 90 minutes away by train and for international travel Stanstead is just over an hour’s drive away.

Closer to home, there is spectacular coastline and Constable Country to visit.
