Holiday home ownership can be a daunting prospect, and deciding exactly where to buy is the first hurdle. We’re here to tell you a little bit more about Aspen Country Park – one of our beautiful holiday parks set within 222 acres of history drenched parklands, woodlands and lakes in the heart of Suffolk.
We’re not short of reasons why you should invest in a luxury lodge here, so grab a cuppa and we’ll get straight into it.
Stunning location, a stones throw from Bury St. Edmunds
Aspen Country Park resides in the quaint village of Fornham St Genevieve in Suffolk. The park grounds were once part of the Duke of Norfolk’s estate. They were designed by Capability Brown and include over 222 acres of stunning woodland and a Grade II listed church tower.
Suffolk offers everything for the perfect getaway. This is a stunning county, which possesses two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and over 60 nature reserves. Suffolk is an ideal place for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, bird-watching, photography, or simply lazing on the beach! It’s the perfect place to escape at a moments notice.
Endless things to do close by
You won’t be short of places to go and things to see in and around the area. Whether you’re an avid hiker or prefer to relax on the beach, there’s truly something for everyone.
Stunning coastline & unspoilt local beaches
Suffolk is on Britain’s east coast, meaning it’s the first place in the country to see the sunrise. Its 50 miles of stunning coastline is home to many towns and tiny villages, each with their own story to tell. You can encounter world-class culture, exquisite food, heritage, wildlife, and so much more all along the Suffolk coast.
Lowerstoft, the largest town along the coast, boasts a wide sandy beach and access to the beautiful Suffolk Broads. For foodie delights, explore the tiny fishing village of Orford which possesses an unexpected level of high-standard cuisine and a depth of folklore surrounding its unique castle.
Southwold beach is one of Suffolk’s best-known resorts. Boasting an 800ft long pier, along with the beach shingle and colourful beach huts, there is no mistaking you are at the Great British seaside! Just over an hours drive from Aspen Country park, it’s a great day out for the whole family.
Opened in 1900, the pier is steeped in history, having to have been rebuilt due to storm damage. The beach itself is backed by a promenade which runs along the front of the town just a short walk away.
Endless forest walks, steeped in culture
If walking is your thing, you’ll be spoiled for choice when based at Aspen Country Park.
Covering 15 miles between Mildenhall and Bury St Edmunds, The Lark Valley Path is a lengthy but easy stroll where you’ll come across Lackford Lake, West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village, and Cavenham Heath National Nature Reserve.
For more of an “off the beaten track” walk, Ickworth Park takes place between the glorious countryside around the Rotunda.
We’ve rounded up our favourite walks below – one to bookmark if you find yourself investing in an Aspen lodge!
The historical sites of Bury St. Edmunds
Bury St Edmunds is a historic market town and civil parish in Suffolk, just a short 10 minute drive from Aspen Country Park! Rich in history, there is so much to discover including the Abbey ruins and Suffolk’s only cathedral. Explore the medieval architecture and the town’s literary links to Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, and Norah Lofts. Or eat and drink at some of the award winning gastro pubs and restaurants the area has to offer.
If it’s sights and attractions you’re looking for, then Bury St Edmunds will not disappoint. Walk or cycle through the picturesque parks, woodland and meadows. Take in the tranquillity and enjoy the open-space beauty of the Abbey Gardens, Nowton Park.
