Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

The RegionSuffolk has an incredible array of attractions for all interests. With its delightful countryside that has inspired so many artists and produces so much wonderful food, unspoilt coastline and many historical towns and villages, there truly is something for everyone.Here we have given you some ideas and links to what there is to do in the area. Please feel free to call us and we will happily help you or book events or tables for you.For historical interestOf the many villages and towns to visit, an absolute must is Lavenham, just a few miles down the road from The Old Rectory. Described as “England's finest medieval town”, the village is charming to meander around and soak up the atmosphere or to simply indulge at the many places to eat and drink or shop. You can also take a guided tour to delve into more of the history of the village.Also nearby is Long Melford which has both Kentwell Hall and Long Melford Hall to visit, as well as a wonderfully wide street with excellent shops and a vast amount of antique dealers. Hadleigh is an interesting market town with historical buildings to explore, a riverside walk and great shops and cafes to enjoy.Slightly further afield is Bury St Edmunds which has the most amazing cathedral recently reopened after extensive renovations.The artsThere are many galleries in the local villages and towns as well as regular art exhibitions and courses if you wish to pick up a brush yourself.The Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is renowned as the last working regency playhouse in England and has a regular array of productions. There is also the Quay Theatre Sudbury, a selection of theatres in Ipswich and further afield Snape Maltings. offers a rich programme of musical productions. There are also regular music recitals at Lavenham Church. See our events section where we list future concerts.The Gainsborough House Museum in Sudbury houses a wonderful museum and gallery.For cyclists and walkersThe Suffolk region has many wonderful walks and cycle routes. You can explore both directly from the house or venture further afield. See the link for cycle routes and walks if you want to plan ahead. Otherwise we can provide advice when you arrive.We can arrange to hire bikes for you or securely store your own bike at the house. We have a minor repairs kit should you need it and will very happily provide a picnic and fill your flask for you.For sporting typesThere are many golf courses in the area to enjoy. From smaller pretty courses such as those at Hintlesham Hall, Stowmarket and Brett Vale as well as the two 18 hole championship golf courses at the Stoke by Nayland Club.The area is renowned for some of the best shooting in the East of England, especially partridge. We can arrange clay pigeon shooting and fly fishing days just over half an hour away from the house with Coopers Country . This family run business has a range of events on offer from getting a taster to whole day experiences with lunch included. This can be great fun for families with children. We have been along ourselves with our boys and had a marvelous time. Currently we are able to offer a 10% discount on prices quoted for all events. At the house we have secure facilities to store your guns, should you bring your own. Gun dogs are also welcome in the company of our own two Labradors, provided they are well behaved (though not necessarily in the field) and don't chase our resident "mouser".About 40 minutes away is the home of British racing – Newmarket and throughout the season, there are regular 'point to points' on our doorstep. There is also the opportunity to ride yourself at stables nearby.Thinking of doing a short course?You may want to come and stay with us whilst you enjoy a short course. There are a huge variety of subjects to explore including art, craft, sport, nature and history. For a list of courses click here Suffolk Tourist Guide or we highly recommend you see Assington Mill's selection of rural arts and crafts courses. The mill is only 10 minutes from us and the range of courses is truly inspiring from hen keeping to clay oven making and scything for beginners. The list is seemingly endless. You will enjoy true Suffolk hospitality with a home made, locally sourced lunch included.For childrenMany of the attractions listed are great for children too. Other things to do with small people include a farm trail at Hollow Trees Farm Shop, the adventure playground at Ickworth House &: Gardens, which has a number of different cycle routes too and brilliant woods to explore at both Edwardstone and Groton. If it rains, there are a number of leisure and play centres in the area.
