A delightful town in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, Needham Market is 20 miles from the cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds. Initially built around the wool combing industry, Needham Market showcases an eclectic mix of buildings, from the 15th-century parish church and medieval Limes Hotel to its many timber-framed properties and grand town houses.
Needham Market is a haven for walkers and cyclists, providing beautiful routes along the River Gipping and around Needham Lake. The lake offers picturesque vistas, play areas and picnic tables, as well as fantastic spots for fishing.
Needham Market isn’t just pretty, it’s practical, too. It has a gym, two supermarkets, a post office, library, café, public houses and a range of independent stores, including an award-winning butchers and bakery. There’s also a community centre and local sports clubs.
If you have little ones at school, Needham Market is home to Bosmere Primary, while the Needham Market Country Practice takes care of your doctors surgery and pharmacy.
The bustling town of Stowmarket is just over three miles away and offers supermarkets, a twice-weekly market, cinema and leisure centre with swimming pool.
Needham Market’s railway station runs frequent trains to Ipswich, just 10 minutes away, and connects to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street. By road, the A140 leads north to Norfolk and the nearby A14 connects to Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds.
St George’s Park
St George’s Park is a unique environment where the architecture and open-place landscaping (which includes a glorious lake) has been consciously created to complement the former chalk quarry. This is seen in the distinctive white terracing and carefully considered design of each home.
Beyond the range of local amenities that serve St George’s Park, including schools, a surgery, supermarkets, independent shops and cafés, the surrounding area also offers plenty of attractive walks and cycle routes along the River Gipping and around Needham Lake.
The development offers an exceptional collection of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes within an exclusive new location on the edge of Needham Market. A combination of stylish homes, stunning surroundings and superb transport connections gives you the perfect setting for modern living whatever your personal tastes or lifestyle.
So it comes as little surprise to learn that St George’s Park won the national Best Regeneration Project at the What House? Awards in 2019. It won Gold ahead of some serious competition from developments in Bath, Buckinghamshire and London – a testament to the wonderful quality of life you can experience here.
