The town’s backbone, is the high street, with just the right eclectic mix of shops, services, restaurants, cafés and pubs. Known for their individuality, quality and care, within a naturally contemporary environment.

All nestling among countryside to take your breath away. Unassuming, yet often spectacular scenes that inspired 18th century painters, Constable and Gainsborough.

Twentieth century artist Cedric Morris spent forty years in Hadleigh. A post impressionist and pioneering gardener, he founded a school with painter and sculptor Arthur Lett-Haines, whose students included Lucian Freud and locally raised Maggi Hambling.

While local hero Oswald Gayford a fearless long-distance flyer, held the world record in 1927, 1933 and 1938.

Sitting on the River Brett, established as a market town in 1252, there is a gentle and yet lively bustle with its population of approximately 9000.

Looking restfully idyllic, the homely atmosphere is testimony to the many families and individuals remaining residents through several generations.

Hadleigh is central to; Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Colchester and Sudbury – and noteworthy villages such as; Clare, Dedham, Kersey, Lavenham and Long Melford.

Social and cultural activities keep this community celebrating their collective wealth.

Expect a friendly welcome and relaxed hospitality wherever you go.
