Enjoy a village location on the edge of a national forest, with a new home at Liberty Gate
If you're seeking a new home in a semi-rural village location, surrounded by beautiful scenery but with large town amenities within easy reach, Liberty Gate could be just the place for you.
Our exciting new development in the village of Lakenheath, West Suffolk, is guaranteed to provide an excellent quality of life, with amenities within walking distance and the vast Thetford Forest Park and its many attractions just a few short minutes away. Families of all ages will appreciate the selection of schools and good transport links.
The county's main routes, the A10, A11, and A14 make this is a convenient location that ticks all the boxes for a new home. Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds are both within easy commuting distance, there's a local bus network, and Lakenheath has its own train station with direct routes to Thetford, Ely and Cambridge.
Liberty Gate is just a short walk from Lakenheath high street, where there are food outlets, a Co-op Food, farm shop, pubs, pharmacy and a post office. More shops and essential services can be found close-by in Mildenhall and Brandon. For a wider range, take a scenic drive through the forest to Thetford. With a history dating all the way back to the Iron Age, this charming town is now home to a good variety of shops and eateries, plus museums and a market. Then there's Bury St Edmunds, with its many independent and high street shops, bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues.
When it comes to leisure, there's something for everyone here. Liberty Gate is close to several parks and nature reserves – most notably Thetford Forest Park, a vast national forest that's home to trails, picnic areas and outdoor activities such as archery. In the heart of the forest is Go Ape, and other attractions include Center Parcs Elveden Forest, Brandon Country Park and Thetford Golf Club. There are excellent museums in Thetford, Mildenhall, Ely and Bury St Edmunds, while Cambridge (44 minutes away) has plenty to keep you occupied for a weekend.
