Though it may seem counterintuitive to be spending time thinking about your home when on holiday, there are so many incredible places to pick up special gifts and homeware in Suffolk that it would be remiss of us not to mention them. What’s more, many guests that we welcome to our Barns and Barges for rent have commented on the superb additions to their home that they’ve collected when out and about. Of course, you won’t struggle to discover boutique homeware and gift stores in Suffolk, but we thought we’d provide a little inspiration all the same.

Snape Maltings 

Situated on the bank of the River Alde – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – Snape Maltings is home to a remarkable independent homeware store. Covering everything from dining tables to fire pit accessories, the store provides everything you could possibly need to dress your home in a beautifully rustic fashion. Their collection of bath and body products also make for incredible gifts if you’re planning on bringing something back in the way of a gift. The timber dining tables are a particular favourite of this blogger.
