Penny Cottage is an exceptionally beautiful 16th Century Weavers Cottage located in the tiny Historic village of Lavenham. Lavenham was featured in the David Dimbleby TV show as one of England's best preserved Medieval Villages and it is the Jewel in the crown of Suffolk's many pretty villages.
Penny Cottage has many period features - broad oak floor boards, ancient beamed, arched rooms and old brickwork.
The bright sitting room has a cosy log burning stove and leads into the kitchen dining area which contains all of the modern conveniences of a fully working kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine.
You can walk straight out from the kitchen to a sunny patio which has panoramic over this tiny village and onto the surrounding countryside.
Steps leading down from the patio bring you into a large mature garden which is shared with the cottage next door which is also part of our small group of holiday cottages.
The spacious bedroom has a high vaulted ceiling with a wealth of ancient oak beams and an en suite bathroom.
There is full central heating throughout the cottage.
This cottage is 5 star rated because of the very high quality of furnishings and equipment, because of this we are unable to offer this lovely cottage to guests with pets or to smokers.
Lavenham contains an excellent French Restaurant called The Great House which is rated as one of the best in England and a number of other excellent restaurants and gastro pubs.
The Market Place, which is 80 yards away, also features the wonderful Guildhall which is owned by the National Trust and was the backdrop for the 1960's cult film "Witchfinder General". The Guildhall now houses a fascinating local history Museum; there are many fine pubs, restaurants, tea rooms, beauty salons, and lovely old fashioned village shops nearby.
Lavenham although really tiny was once England's 13th most prosperous town - in the 16th Century ! Lavenham's importance stems from its wool and weaving activities which is attested to by its wonderful historic buildings, especially the Guildhall and Church. It is a short stroll to the edge of the village and there are marked circular walks, one of which will take you down the disused railway line to Long Melford and back.
