Framlingham Country Show near our holiday cottages

Run by Quintessentially British Events, this one is certainly qunitessentially Suffolk, which is handy as it’s very handy for our quintessentially Suffolk holiday cottages. We wrote about it last year and quite a few of our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves, sampling the very best of all that Suffolk has to offer holidaymakers and locals alike

From ring demonstrations, rural arts & crafts, live music (I played there last year with my band last year) cookery demo’s and lots of stuff for kids and dogs, it’s a real country feast with something for everyone

You’ll find lots of clothing retailers, tons of food outlets with some real artisan foodie treats and lost of local purveyors of wines, beers and soft drinks. There’s also an interesting array of garden furniture, some of it very unusual. I almost pay £00’s for a tree trunk I realised I didn’t need! It was very impressive though

One of the fantastic things about the Framlingham show is that it highlights young entrepreneurs in Suffolk, which can only be a good thing. It gives them a platform to exhibit their products and services to a wider audience

Dog festival - Framlingham Country show near our luxury Suffolk holiday cottages

So many of our holiday cottage guests are dog owners and they’ll be especially pleased to learn that there is a festival of dogs, new for 2015. There will be demos covering gun dogs, training, safety etc so well worth a look if you are a dog owner

The great thing about the shopping at events such as this is that you find so much that you don’t find in the town centre. They have everything from amazing cheeses, meats, oils, sauces, chocoltaes, drinks etc to a wide variety of clothing, again, not the usual high street finds
