Best of Suffolk reached for the stars today, as we wrote to 10 Downing Street to offer the Prime Minister a holiday in Suffolk after he cancelled his holiday in Thailand.
Naomi Tarry, Director of Best of Suffolk says: “David and his family are extremely welcome to stay in one of our boutique holiday cottages in beautiful Suffolk, we have written today to invite them here. We have a stylish collection of over 100 holiday cottages and I’m sure we can find somewhere special for him to relax and put his feet up for a few days”
The Prime Minister will be spoilt for choice, from beautiful seafront cottages to gated private houses:

I love taking a look at photos of other people's houses, and so it was a privilege to be asked by a journalist to provide a set of photos of our own Aldeburgh house for an interiors magazine this week.
We used earthy Farrow and Ball colours throughout and worked with local craftsmen to get the high standard of finishing touches that we were looking for. It's a very peaceful and relaxing house to spend time in.
