Five Scenic Places to Move to in Norfolk and Suffolk

East Anglia has an abundance of lush rural landscape, wild English beaches, beautiful flint churches and quaint villages, making it a prime holiday hotspot for avid staycationers. But what about those who want to move there? Whether you want to start a family, retire to a quiet location by the sea, or live in the bustling centre of the medieval city of Norwich, below, we have compiled together five scenic spots to move to in Norfolk and Suffolk.


Holt is a pretty Georgian town that is begging to be explored. With a range of independent shops, cafes, antiques and galleries, it is the perfect place to stroll with a young family, or to enjoy in your elderly years. A 13th-century church is nearby for those who are religious, as well as Holt Country Park a 100 acre woodland for children and pets to run around in.


Also nestled in North Norfolk, Brancaster is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the North Norfolk Coast. Imagine yourself strolling along the sands with ice cream, fudge, and a stick of rock in hand, before divulging in freshly caught fish and chips or mussels for supper. The abundance of freshwater and saltwater habitats attracts an array of birds, including pink-footed geese! Especially as Brancaster is a stone’s throw away from RSPB Titchwell Marsh, a popular nature reserve. The annual Christmas Markets and Wildlife festivals make this a popular destination for movers and holidaymakers all year round. Plus, the shipwreck on the beach is a fabulous place for young members of the family to explore.


For history lovers and heritage seekers, the quirky medieval village of Lavenham is the idyllic spot to move to. The wonky Tudor cottages and redbrick houses are the perfect cosy spot to while away hours. Plus, it is home to plenty of high-quality restaurants and cafes, ideal for any foodies.

Long Melford

Home to two fine stately manors, Long Melford has a fusion of both history and the lively bustle of community village life. This chocolate box, quintessentially fairytale English village is a great spot for families and older couples to discover.


If you are looking for a quiet village to repose, Somerleyton is perfect. With a central hubbub of thatched cottages and beautiful duck pond, it surrounds the grand Somerleyton estate, which has grand ornate gardens to picnic in during the summer. An ideal spot for growing families, it has a fantastic local primary school, offering your family the very best of English village life.
