Kentwell's holiday cottages are ideally placed to explore Suffolk or visit the picturesque villages of Lavenham, Cavendish, Clare and Long Melford, as well as the historic towns of Bury St Edmunds, Sudbury and Cambridge. Slightly further afield, you can explore the beautiful villages of Aldeburgh and Southwold and enjoy Suffolk’s pretty coastline.

Hall Barn and the adjoining Old Cow Byre were once part of the cattle yard when this was the home farm to the Kentwell Estate.  This is one of the finest estates in Suffolk, situated upon a local eminence in what otherwise is a flat county.  Rights of way through the estate offer delightful walks with wonderful prospects on all sides.

Suffolk was once one of the most populous and richest counties in England.  The many fine wool towns and villages hereabouts boast striking churches and timber-framed buildings from that era, surviving because the industrial revolution passed this part by.

Kentwell Hall Estate is of, but not in, Long Melford, certainly the longest 16th Century village in England.  It has everything the temporary visitor may want in shops, pubs and restaurants.  Its Church, with unique stained glass survivals illustrating the Clopton Family of Kentwell Hall is accounted by many among the finest parish churches in England.

Bury St Edmunds, the county town for this half of Suffolk still has its medieval street layout. Once dominated by the grandest Abbey in England, the ruins of which still remain.  It offers everything a county town should, from the Cathedral to theatres.  Its southern counterpart is Sudbury, a Saxon burgh.  In between, either side of the A134, which runs through Long Melford, are picturesque villages and hamlets.

Hall Barn and The Old Cow Byre both offer a peaceful haven and a stimulating walk to the historic village of Long Melford, though it it quicker to drive!

The two units can be inter-connected for larger groups.

We do not allow pets in either unit, and we insist you do not smoke.
