Retirement living in Martlesham Heath, Suffolk

Martlesham Heath has a proud wartime history as the former home to an RAF and American air base and ‘experimental airfield’ that played an important role in World War II. This heroism is remembered in the passionately restored Martlesham Heath Control Tower museum, which is well worth a visit. The village itself was built in 1972 following a traditional format with a green, church and cricket pavilion. The concept has resulted in a thriving community with plenty of opportunity to get involved in village life.

Ipswich is just six miles from Martlesham Heath making it easy to enjoy the delights of this vibrant port. Travelling by bus takes just over half an hour and around 15 minutes by car. Once there, explore the waterfront, take a cruise down the river Orwell, or a trip to the theatre or arts venues.

Martlesham Heath is also on the border of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for coastal walks and nature spotting.
