The Tryst

Self Catering

A stunning Grade I listed retreat in the heart of Lavenham, one of Britain's best preserved medieval villages with over 300 listed buildings. This historic property is oozing with period charm and splendour, complete with an inglenook fireplace and ancient wooden beams. Outside, there is a private knot walled garden with a variety of flowers and greenery, as well as interconnecting paths connecting the sun terrace.

What is the capacity for The Tryst?

The Tryst sleeps up to six guests in three well-appointed bedrooms. The smallest of the three bedrooms can be found on the ground floor and features a 3' single bed with an additional truckle bed which can be made up on request and has oak french doors which lead directly into the garden, as well as a shower room. Upstairs are two further bedrooms. The Gold Room has been beautifully furnished with a 5' king-size bed. The French Room, also with a 5' king-size bed, has windows on three walls with far-stretching views of the pretty gardens and village. The bedrooms on the first floor share the family bathroom which has a luxurious free-standing bath.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Lavenham area?

The village has a thriving and interesting history, and its half-timbered buildings and narrow lanes exude mediaeval charm. Long Melford, a popular village, is less than 5 miles away, so keen walkers may wish to take advantage of Suffolk's many footpaths and travel there on foot. Melford Hall and Kentwell Hall are two large manor houses in the village, as well as a bustling main street lined with independent shops, galleries, restaurants, and antique shops. The Dedham Vale AONB and the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds are two other notable local attractions. The fantastic Suffolk Coast is only a half-hour drive away and always makes for a fantastic day out.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

There are several cafés and restaurants to choose from when dining out in Lavenham. The Great House is one of the top restaurants in the East of England, serving award-winning French cuisine. For a lighter snack, visit the Lavenham Blue Vintage Tea Rooms or The Parlour for a scoop (or three) of wonderful ice cream.
