Although stepping back in time, we nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed luxuriating in modern, home comforts - I particularly liked the large bath towels (I cannot bear postage stamp...

What gorgeous accommodation with everything one could desire in the beautifully-appointed rooms. The 14th century priory is absolutely charming and the gardens are magnificent. Our host, Jonathon made us feel extremely welcome. The village of Lavenham had some lovely places to eat as well as a delightful historic main street. Our stay at the priory was a wonderful experience in...

I have grown very fond of Suffolk and was recently fortunate enough to attend a wedding in Lavenham. Lavenham is a medieval gem of a village in an already beautiful part of the country with a 15th century church and narrow streets lined with half-timbered medieval cottages. My fiancée, originally from London, booked one of these restored and beautifully maintained...

What a beautiful, historic building. My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights one weekend as we were traveling in Europe from Sydney and we couldn't have asked for a more homely and 'Old English' setting. Lavenham is just like stepping into a 600+ old painting. Our room in Lavenham Priory was superb; Clean, cosy and comfortable with everything we...
