Ten of the Best East Anglian Retreats by Jessica Baldwin

"In medieval times, the Suffolk town of Lavenham was one of the wealthiest towns in Britain, thanks to its lucrative wool trade. Today, the quaint timbre-framed town is home to a wonderful rural bolt hole; The Great House Restaurant and Hotel. The fifteenth century property has just five sought after en-suite bedrooms featuring plasma TVs and WiFi as well as a complimentary decanter of sherry for a warm welcome. Make sure you don’t miss its fantastic restaurant, voted as one of Britain’s top 100 by The Sunday Times."

Ten Historic Hotels in East Anglia by Adrian Mourby

"Lavenham is a small, beautifully preserved medieval town whose export of blue cloth made it one of the wealthiest communities in Tudor Britain. Its white half-timbered guildhall is owned by the National Trust and the Great House nearby is one of the UK’s top restaurants with rooms. There are just five highly individual bedrooms, including one with a Jacobean four-poster bed."

The house is lovely, food well presented and most enjoyable. The rooms are well and truly delightful with all if not more than most things provided. The bed is huge and comfortable. Staff delightful.

We have been coming here since Regis and Martine took over the Great House 29 years ago. They consistently provide imaginative cooking of the highest quality I expect and friendly service in a lovely setting.

Accommodation is spacious, clean and smartly furnished (olde world). Some rooms contain separate lounge area with TV. There is free Wi-Fi and free parking in the village square, which the hotel overlooks. Restaurant is smartly furnished, service is good with a variety of cuisine (French mainly) to an excellent standard. Staff are very friendly and helpful without being over-attentive.
