It was so great to see you enjoying Suffolk. It really is rural, unspoilt countryside only 2 hours from London. As well as Lavenham and all the medieval villages, we have amazing skies and beautiful sunsets with some stunning rivers/valleys for walks and picnics. Thank...More

Hi Kathryn, We are 10 miles from the nearest train station and coming from London, it would be Sudbury. The Sudbury line is the most delightful left over of what trains used to be: a single line track winding its way along the Stour valley to Marks Tey. To reach Sudbury from London you would have to change at Marks Tey and to go to Harwich from Sudbury you would change at Marks Tey. Staying with me is probably not the most convenient, but the peace and quiet when you get here and the train from Marks Tey to Sudbury would probably make the adventure one of the best
