However is this all the property has to offer?

It is called Star Cottage after all, what could that mean?  Well it’s well known that Suffolk is a ‘go-to’ for star gazers getting out of the city.  Does a stay at Star Cottage Lavenham improve your chances of seeing more of the night sky?  Well, no more than a stay in any rural Suffolk location.  So what brings about the ‘star quality’ in Star Cottage?

Star Quality

Lavenham, one of England’s most historic and beautiful villages, dates all the way back to the eleventh century!  Famed for becoming wealthy on the wool trade in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, is was also the home of one Jane Taylor.


Jane Taylor?

Yes, Jane Taylor was a resident of Lavenham.  She may well have written her most famous work, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, while living in the village.  Whatever the exact location of this poet when she wrote those famous words, we can picture ourselves at the scene thanks to much of Lavenham remaining the same today as it was in the 19 century.

Anyone staying at the gorgeous Star Cottage Lavenham, when not reminiscing about the illustrious history of its location, can enjoy the comforts of the cottage and its wonderful location.  If a more contemporary cultural reference is required, wonder past the delightful De Vere House around the corner, star of Harry’s Deathly Hallows, as none other than Harry’s parents home.



Lavenham is a gorgeous trip back into Suffolk’s medieval history.  Sloping buildings, timber frames and a flourish of independent shops to both intrigue and delight.
