Holiday cottages in Bungay
Bungay sits within a loop of the River Waveney and has many historic attractions to explore from your holiday cottage, including the ruins of Bigod's Castle (a large Norman castle dating back to 1165), an ancient Buttercross - where a weekly market is held - and the old Borough Well. A short walk from our Bungay cottages there are also plenty of independent local stores to browse, selling everything from arts and antiques to cutting-edge fashions. Bungay is a town with a strong literary tradition; modern writers such as Elizabeth Jane Howard and Louis de Bernières have lived here, as well as classic novelist H. Rider Haggard. Maybe your Bungay accommodation will inspire you to start a novel too! It’s also home to Clays - established in 1795, it’s one of the largest printworks in the country, and the reason why Harry Potter first saw the light of day in this quiet corner of Suffolk.
But, above all, Bungay is a place in which to unwind. Time slows to a trickle here - make the most of that in the historic Falcon Water Meadow, with a public right of way, it’s a lovely spot in which to sit and watch the world go by. Or just kick back and relax in one of our beautiful Bungay holiday cottages. We have a selection of self-catering accommodation options you'll love so no matter what your taste or budget is, you’ll find a Bungay holiday home to suit you.
