    Came all the way from Mauritius to visit Lavenham and what a beautiful cottage to stay in. It was perfect and couldn’t fault it one bit. Everything from the bed to the welcome basket was divine. Will definitely be staying here again with family.

Lavenham

Lavenham contains some excellent Restaurants and Pubs, The Great House is rated as one of the best French Restaurants in England, The Swan Hotel which is a gorgeous building with a fascinating bar, has a very highly acclaimed restaurant for non-guests and guests alike.

The Market Place is only 100 yards away and features the wonderful National Trust owned Guildhall, which featured as the backdrop for the 1960’s cult film “Witchfinder General” with Vincent Price. The Guildhall now houses a fascinating local history Museum. There are many good pubs, tea rooms, beauty salons, and lovely old fashioned village shops nearby.

Lavenham is really tiny but was once England’s 13th most prosperous town – in the 1500’s! Its importance stems from its wool and weaving trade reflected by its amazing array of historic buildings.

There are stunning marked circular walks around the village as well as down the old disused railway line to Long Melford, This walk is a designated Nature Reserve and Long Melford is another famous Medieval Suffolk Village home to the Lovejoys TV series and a great place to go antique hunting.
