Hotels in Lavenham
Located in one of England's best-preserved medieval villages, Lavenham hotels offer access to the area's many historical attractions, from half-timbered crooked houses to picturesque market places.
One of Suffolk's wool towns, Lavenham is perfect for delving into the rich historical heritage of the county. There are half-timbered houses dotted throughout the village, some so crooked that they look like they've come from the pages of a fairy tale. One of the most famous buildings is the Guildhall of Corpus Christi set on Market Place and built around 1530. The grand building harks back to an era when Lavenham was one of the most prosperous villages in England due to the wool trade, and offers guests a chance to step back in time and learn about nearly 500 years of history.
Another historical site in Lavenham is the Church of St Peter and St Paul, dating from around 1530, before the reformation. The church's 141-foot tower is Lavenham's most recognisable landmark and can be seen for miles around. The stone exterior is impressively detailed and the interior contains striking 19th-century Victorian glass.
One of the older landmarks in the village is Lavenham Little Hall. The hall dates back to the 14th century as the home and work place of the Causton family, and has been passed through history as the residence of many prominent families.
Shops and boutiques
Lavenham is home to a number of charming independent shops, and a good few hours can be spent perusing through the boutique items for sale. Marshbeck Interiors, Fine and Reproduction Furniture has an impressive selection of bespoke Yew and Mahogany furniture, The Cuckoo Flower has an interesting range of jewellery, art and houseware items, while Village Gossip sells a chic selection of clothing.
Food and drink
No trip to a historic English village is complete without indulging in traditional afternoon tea. The Sweetmeats tearoom has a delicious selection of scones, cakes and puddings, as well as ice cream and homemade fudge. If you'd rather enjoy a pint of local ale, head to the friendly Greyhound Pub for a range of drinks and meals.
