Welcome
First of all we are sorry we
could not bring you a
February issue - lockdown
and so many local businesses
closing - rather scuppered that
one. Still, spring is almost here and with it the hope of some normality returning to our lives.
To that end we’ve made this an upbeat issue, celebrating the Bury St Edmunds restaurant Pea Porridge gaining a Michelin star, and basking in Suffolk’s reputation as a property hotspot and desirable place to live.
Meanwhile, and since this could be another year of staycations and exploring places close to home, we look at how modernised VW Campervans have become an interesting travel option. For those who like breaks that combine luxury with pampering, our hotels expert Lulu Townsend picks out her choice of spas.
Add in a feature about the changing face of dating agencies; how Lillie Langtry lived the high life at Kentford, plus our usual array of stunning photography, and we hope it will make for an entertaining read.
