Situated just one mile from the outskirts of Ipswich, yet benefiting from beautiful Suffolk countryside, Claydon has plenty to offer the home hunter. And Hamilton Smith Estate Agents always maintains a good selection of properties.
While the village is centred around a core of period timber-framed properties, the principal housing tends to be more modern, up to 40 years old. Most of the housing is privately owned and healthy turnover means plenty of good houses available in all price ranges.
Claydon's position is one of its principal attractions for potential Suffolk home buyers. It's close to the A14 arterial route to Cambridge, the A1 and on to Birmingham. And Ipswich is literally 'down the road' with all its many and varied attractions easily accessed by bus (every 15 minutes) right to Ipswich railway station.
Not that you need to travel to Ipswich to get anything done, of course. Claydon is an active community with a busy village hall, two pubs, a country house hotel, a bakery and sandwich bar, travel agent, two churches and a recently redeveloped supermarket.
Unlike many local villages, Claydon has pre-school, nursery, primary and secondary schools within the village, allowing families to stay in Claydon through the childrens' school career.
