PERFECT! The best place you could ever find for a romantic getaway. (Gentlemen please note) The Coach House suite is separate from the main, beautifully furnished house, and is an oasis of calm. It looks out onto a lovely English walled garden with lavenders, allium, and roses set in low box hedges, where you can walk and lounge at will.... More

Enjoying UK's old town with the most preserved medieval cottages, it felt like we were in a different era, walking through the town was just nostalgic. The stop at the Hovis bread shop was amazing, the staff were all old and they spend talking with their customer, we were third jn the queue but we waited for 15mins. The different... More

The Old Rectory has lovely rooms in the main house which are quiet as the house is set back from the road with a beautiful view of the historic church across the street. Our hostess was both charming and helpful. She made dinner reservations at two excellent local restaurants. The breakfasts were delicious served in a lovely room with views... More

I found this wonderful place online but the website was showing no availability on the dates I wanted, but on phoning, the wonderful lady on the other end of the phone told me the dates were in fact bookable - lesson to be learnt, always ring and enquire! Well worth it as is was absolutely lovely -definitely not a corporate... More

My husband booked a surprise trip to Lavenham, for my birthday, in the Old Rectory. Being more of a practical person than a romantic, it was great to find he had booked us in such a wonderful place. I can truly say i couldn't have found anywhere better to stay. The accommodation was excellent, staff were very friendly and Susie... More

Lavenham is a great place from which to base a Suffolk weekend. The Old Rectory is probably the most expensive place in the town at which you can stay....but it is worth it. Super large rooms and fabulous breakfasts. Fantastic hosts and staff that are very helpful. More like renting a house than a room :-) If we went again,... More

This was our first introduction to Suffolk and all its charms and we were blessed with glorious weather. We had two wonderful nights in the Gainsborough room which was very clean and spacious with great views of the garden and the beautiful church in front of the rectory. The bed was extremely comfortable and this made it difficult to get... More

We stayed here for a night in early March and had one of the suites in which to indulge ourselves in all things luxurious! The standard of finish is exquisite and the owners have an exceptional eye for detail with quality of service high on their list of priorities. Both the main building and the suites offer a level of... More

We stayed just for one very snowy night in the Stable Suite. Everything was lovely, and nothing too much trouble. Because of the deep snow we would have liked to have a taxi to the restaurant but this was impossible because of the weather. Susie offered to drive us there which was so kind and way beyond the call of... More
