The East Anglia region

Suffolk offers an escape to rural England, the land of Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable.

You can visit wool churches, beautiful medieval villages like Lavenham, country houses like Ickworth, and the Suffolk Heritage Coast.

Cambridge and Norfolk are not too far away.

Beautiful house within easy reach of London and the South East.

The whole of East Anglia is within driving distance. Local villages and towns such as Long Melford, Clare, Cavendish and Lavenham are a delight to visit. Larger towns such as Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and Colchester are within easy reach. Slightly further afield is Cambridge with all its attractions.

National trust properties and Country Parks are a few minutes away.


Long Melford (2 miles) has a range of antique shops, restaurants, Kentwell Hall and Long Melford Hall (NT). The delightful village of Lavenham is 6 miles away with its range of interesting and unusual shops and buildings including a famous Guildhall (NT).

The pretty village of Cavendish is 1.5 miles. Clare with its Castle, country park and priory are 4 miles. The popular Bury St Edmunds, 10 miles, with excellent facilities, is famous for its Cathedral, Theatre Royal and Ickworth House (NT), whilst the market town of Sudbury 6 miles, has a full range of shops and resturants as well as a leisure centre, Gainsborough's House and station for rail links to London. Excellent walking and cycling country and the house is just 30 yards from riverside walks along the River Stour.

The village of Clare, 4 miles away, was awarded the title of Suffolk Village of the Year 2010 by the Suffolk Association of Local Councils.

You can walk half a mile into Glemsford for the nearest shops, pubs and restaurant. Walkers can pick up the Stour Valley Path or St Edmund Way there. Anglers are welcome and there a number of lakes just minutes from the house.

There is a farm shop less than half a mile way.

For Railway enthusiasts you can walk the old track and view the old bridges along the Stour Valley to Long Melford or visit the steam railway at Castle Hedingham, approximately 10 miles.

Within easy reach by car for Stansted Airport, Colchester, Ipswich and Cambridge.

Within driving distance for Suffolk and Essex Coast.

"Spacious, very clean and comfortable home"

We were three mature cousins travelling the UK to meet family and chose the Old Station House because it had 2 bathrooms and the 3 bedrooms required even though it had 5. Just a couple minutes drive into Long Melford and Melford Hall which is a large manor house open to the public it suited our accommodation needs perfectly. It also only took another 7 minutes to get into the old market town of Sudbury where our family lives. Ray and Viv met us at the house to handover the keys and show us around and made us feel most welcome. Highly recommend this property set between Cavendish and Long Melford and hope to stay again on our next trip.
