    “We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Suffolk.”

    The property is situated in the grounds of the owners house which is in the countryside and wonderfully quiet. The property is very minimalistic as stated on the the description provided by the owners.If you want to fully self cater then this is probably not the right choice for you. It would have benefitted from a freezer (especially in the warm weather) and a microwave. The steps to the property are steep and not suitable for someone with limited movement,. The area is magnificent. Lavenham ...

    The property is situated in the grounds of the owners house which is in the countryside and wonderfully quiet. The property is very minimalistic as stated on the the description provided by the owners.If you want to fully self cater then this is probably not the right choice for you. It would have benefitted from a freezer (especially in the warm weather) and a microwave. The steps to the property are steep and not suitable for someone with limited movement,. The area is magnificent. Lavenham is close by and visits to the national Trust properties at Melfor House,Ickford House and The Gulid hall in Lavenham are a must. You are able to park your vehicle under cover which is a bonus. The large bed was extremeley comfortable. Thankyou to the owners for the eggs and milk. Did we enjoy ourselves yes most definiteley.

About the location

LAVENHAM

Sudbury 5 miles; Bury St Edmunds 12 miles.

In late medieval and Tudor times, Lavenham was one of the country's wealthiest towns due to the English wool trade. Today, Lavenham is considered England's finest complete medieval village with over 350 timber framed medieval houses and its magnificent church of St Peter & St Paul. Located in some of these medieval buildings you will find delightful shops, art galleries tea rooms, good pubs and a number of Michelin starred gourmet restaurants. Many places have been filmed for TV & films including a Harry Potter movie filmed in the splendid NT Guildhall. The village & the surrounding countryside have inspired many famous artists, John Constable was schooled in Lavenham and Thomas Gainsborough in the nearby village of Sudbury. This area of Suffolk is renowned for its pretty villages and its historic houses. Nearby is NT Melford Hall with its antique centres, visit the beautiful Debham Vale and see where John Constable was inspired. At NT Flatford Mill, you can enjoy a leisurely boat trip or walk the banks of the River Stour and afterwards visit the riverside tea rooms. London is just over one hour by train from Sudbury and the nearest airport is Stansted.
