Suffolk Trip: Fancy Housing And Incredible Skies At Audley End

 

On our first day in Suffolk we rented a car and meandered from Stansted Airport to the house of my dear friend Nicky. On our way – crossing Saffron Walden – we saw this fantastic fairy tale chateau and stopped to visit it.

It is called Audley End House and it is totally worth a visit. The staff is incredibly professional and passionate which met greatly with our curiosity.

BTW: Do not expect the information point in Altkünkendorf to be open on Sundays. (Why would they? All tourists come during working hours :-)) And a “hikers rest area” is a fenced, windy space equipped with some seats but without a roof or any other similar amenities.
