Denston is a peaceful village in rural West Suffolk, lying in the upper reaches of the Glem Valley. The 15th century parish church of St Nicholas is one of the most beautiful in the county. Bury St Edmunds with its cathedral and Abbey Gardens is a short drive away. Lavenham and the historic wool towns are within easy reach, as are the antiques shops at Clare, Cavendish and Long Melford. It is an ideal location for a day out at Newmarket races, or trying your hand at punting in Cambridge. The National Trust properties at Ickworth and Melford Hall are well worth a visit and nearby Kentwell Hall holds many interesting events year round.  It's a good base for walking through the countryside and cycling along the quiet lanes.

Just wonderful & beautiful - All appliances worked quite well & heating/hot water was excellent. Kitchen well-equipped. Bedding was very fresh, warm, & cozy and the Xmas decorations upon arrival were most thoughtful & brought much Xmas spirit to our stay. Thanks again for making our English Xmas a dream come true!Mrs JOANN Stettler - 22nd December 2015
We loved our holiday in our cosy and well appointed cottage. Very impressed at the heated mirror in the bathroom! It felt as if we were in a loved home not just a place that is rented out.Mr E Maclean - 5th September 2015
The cottage is situated in a peaceful and beautiful part of Suffolk. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The local area has plenty of attractive and interesting places to visit Clare, Lavenham, Sudbury and good walks.Mr A Mildinhall - 26th June 2015
VERY peaceful and relaxing. We didn't get the urge to go very far from the cottage.Mr A Hurst - 23rd May 2015
A stunning cottage with beautiful gardens and surroundings, and would certainly recommend to others.Mr M Lambert - 9th May 2015
If you want to be in a peaceful location with open fields on 2 sides, be in the middle of an area with loads of footpaths but near to lots of historical houses and things to do - choose this cottage!Ms L Wood - 28th June 2014
