History of Suffolk

The county of Suffolk was formed from the south part of the kingdom of East Anglia which had been settled by the Angles in the latter half of the 5th century. The most important Anglo-Saxon settlements appear to have been made at Sudbury and Ipswich. Before the end of the Norman dynasty, strongholds had arisen at Eye, Clare, Walton and Framlingham.

Suffolk suffered severely from Danish incursions, and after the Treaty of Wedmore became a part of the Danelagh. In 1173 the Earl of Leicester landed at Walton with an army of Flemings and was joined by Hugh Bigod against Henry II. Although the county was for the most part Yorkist it took little part in the Wars of the Roses. In 1525 the artisans of the south strongly resisted Henry VIII's forced loan. It was from Suffolk that Mary drew the army which supported her claim to the throne. In the Civil Wars the county was for the most part parliamentarian, and joined the Association of the Eastern Counties for defence against the Papists. 

Under the Local Government Act of 1888 Suffolk was divided into the two administrative counties of East and West Suffolk.

We felt very welcomed, great hospitality. Lovely to eat breakfast around a big table with other guests. As far as facilities were concerned they would have been improved with a fixed shower.

We had a lovely weekend at West Stow Hall. Eileen and Andrew were most welcoming and provided everything we needed. We loved the tour of the house as Eileen explained the history. We highly recommend a stay here.

Superb! We stayed at Flindor cottage in July. It was superb in every way. Mark could not have been more welcoming. It has a lovely olde world charm and the bedrooms are beautifully furnished. The bed gave me the best nights sleep ever! Thank you so much!

Mid week break with Friends Flindor Cottage was a fantastic find! Beautiful cottage appointed to the very highest standards. 2 lovely bedrooms with separate roll top equipped bathrooms. Very cosy all round including lounge and dining room with welcoming open fires. Mark was an excellent host and his breakfasts outstanding. Very extensive wine list. Fully recommend.

Flindor Cottage (Amazing!!) Absolutele gem of a place. Mark is such a brilliant host, fantastic cook and a thoroughly nice guy. Our second visit after coming here last year for my birthday. Returned with friends and they too were blown away by this beautiful cottage. Will definitely be returning hopefully at least once a year. Thank you Mark and kind regards.
