The best thing

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE - Din­ner, bed & break­fast costs from £200 for two; the­sunin­nd­ed­ham.com.

A sense that the land­scape is al­most un­changed as time has rolled on. Pink and ochre houses, lop­sided build­ings, an­cient churches. Al­most as soon as you’re off the A12, you see your first creek. It feels like the low coun­try, wa­ter seeps in here and there – clues abound; bridges over streams to houses and lanes that twist and turn de­spite the ab­sence of con­tours. No won­der Con­sta­ble loved it. The ab­so­lute def­i­ni­tion of a beauty spot is some­where that is still lovely to visit, de­spite the pres­ence of other tourists. Ded­ham Vale fits the bill and The Sun is at the heart of it with a warm wel­come, a sense of his­tory and re­ally good food.
