You’ve passed so many historic market towns and quaint English villages you can only imagine how grand the actual park is going to be. You’ve just finished the purchase on your Suffolk holiday home and you’re going to Aspen Country holiday park to check it out and enjoy a long weekend with the family.

Your home is located within 222 acres of prestigious and stately grounds. The area was once owned by the Duke of Norfolk and has a rich aristocratic history.

You look in your rear view mirror at your kids and ask them if they’re excited. Yes they exclaim in unison. They’re already planning where they’re going to go exploring when you arrive at your Suffolk holiday home and your partner is clutching a bottle of wine and checking Netflix. This is going to be a great weekend away, you think.

Suffolk is a great location for a UK based family holiday. The county is small with access to the North Sea and great historical sites. One day you could be walking up a hill, the next you might be exploring the Suffolk Coast and Heath Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the day after you might be exploring the rest of the South East.

With Norfolk and Cambridge just a stone’s throw away too it is easy to pop over county borders to explore historic Cambridge or the Norfolk broads. Suffolk is a great place to spend a family holiday.
