Framlingham Holiday Cottages

Home to a well-preserved 12th-century castle, a series of independent and exceptionally quaint local pubs, cafes, and businesses, as well as a series of memorable walking routes, Framlingham is fast becoming one of the most popular spots in Suffolk for a romantic weekend or weekend away with friends.

The perfect place from which to explore wider areas of Suffolk, the town is a short drive from the Suffolk coast in one direction and the vast expanse of countryside and orchards in the other. Its quiet surroundings and slower pace of life make it a favourite with both local and far-flung visitors alike who flock to the town to enjoy the pubs, revel in the footpaths, and visit the castle.

So, where should you stay – and are there many holiday cottages near Framlingham, Suffolk?

Why Visit Framlingham?

Before we dive into the best and most popular holiday cottages in Framlingham, Suffolk, let’s first share a few must-dos to add to your list.

Framlingham Castle has to be top of the list, not least because of how well-preserved the castle is, but also because it gives way to exhibits, events, and some of the best viewpoints in Suffolk. Set at the top of a grassy embankment, the castle is a focal point on Framlingham’s landscape – with visitors then heading into the town to enjoy one of the many local independent businesses, whether it be a cup of tea or a pint.

The town itself boasts many of the traditional hallmarks of an ancient market town, and as such is considered one of the best spots to visit if you love truly authentic English history. Despite its small surface area, as a town, Framlingham is bustling and exciting, with something for everyone to enjoy.
