    Local information

    • The Old Rectory sits in an outstanding position in Lavenham overlooking open countryside with a stunning view of the beautiful church to one side. Lavenham is regarded as the finest surviving medieval wool town in England and is famous for its unique timber frame houses. This historic large village was constructed at the height of the wool trade and benefits from a wide range of local shops, restaurants, public houses and hotels of some note. A much wider range of services can be found in Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich or Colchester and the latter has direct InterCity services into London's Liverpool Street Station.
