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.
