Local area

Elmswell is a thriving village, with a welcoming, long-established community. A site containing a pottery kiln from the third century dates Elmswell back to Roman times, and with the village also mentioned in the Domesday Book, it has an interesting history. As one of Suffolk’s largest villages, Elmswell has plenty to offer residents, from local conveniences such as a Post Office, primary school, co-op shop, barbers, Chinese takeaway and two pubs, through to Blackbourne Community Centre, a cricket club and a set of allotments.

Conveniently, Elmswell has its own main line railway station, so you can hop on a train and be in Bury St Edmunds and all it has to offer in as little as 12 minutes, or right in the town centre of bustling, coastal Ipswich in around 25 minutes.

Just 15 minutes away by car, is the market town of Bury St Edmunds. Whether you’re after a larger supermarket, or the popular outdoor market that takes place in the town centre twice a week, Bury St Edmunds has you covered. Suffolk is rightly famed as a culinary paradise and Bury is recognised as the jewel in its crown. It boasts a mouth-watering variety of award-winning food and drink venues and is home to the outstanding Pea Porridge - the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Suffolk - well worth a visit.

Enjoy concerts, comedy and exhibitions at the Apex, explore chain stores in the Arc, or take a wander through the independent boutiques in the town centre. Surrounded by Suffolk countryside, Bury St Edmunds has a wealth of beautiful parks and attractions. The Abbey Gardens are just one of the stunning areas within Bury St Edmunds, framed by the abbey wall that runs from the 13th century Abbot's Bridge via the imposing Abbey Gate to St Edmundsbury Cathedral. Alternatively, just a short drive away, you can discover the pretty medieval wool towns of Lavenham and Long Melford.
