Ipswich and Colchester

As an idyllic village, Capel St Mary is a great base to commute to the larger hubs of Ipswich and Colchester for employment, retail, entertainment and leisure. Great facilities in two very different places. Ipswich has a maritime heritage and though the dock area has now been transformed into a thriving leisure hub packed with bars and restaurants, it still plays an important commercial role hand in hand with the ferry town of Harwich and the container port of Felixstowe.

Suffolk is one of the UK’s most rural counties. It’s so unspoilt and so easy to get off the beaten track.
