Very well presented property in the grounds of a beautiful moated Suffolk house. The owners were very friendly and responsive. We would like to go back when the weather is better to fully appreciate the property!Mr O Roberts - 6th February 2017
Wonderfull!!! The barn was perfect, the owners Fiona and Charles were lovely and had prepared a welcome basket with home made jam and bread. I will be booking again later in the Summer. This property is perfect for anyone visiting Lavenham and the surrounding area. Lovely.Mr JOHN Wadham - 2nd May 2016
