How to get there


Takes about 1h30m from London on a good day. The post code is CO10 9NS. Can’t miss it when you get here!

By train

If you don’t have a car or want a drive free relaxing holiday, there are trains from both Stratford and Liverpool street that get you to Sudbury in about about 1h30m. Then we pick you up from the station which is about 15 minute drive away from the house. We’ll then drop you back to the station on your journey back.

What to expect in Brent Eleigh

Peace and quiet. The area is just beautiful. There are countless footpaths to explore with streams running through them. Historic Lavenham is a 45 minute walk if you miss a bit of movement.

Things to do

Walk to Lavenham
Lavenham is  a 45 minute walk along the bridle track. There is a short walk to reach the bridle track up the lane from the house.

Lavenham has many tea shops, cafes and pubs to choose from.

Our favorite teashop is Tatum’s where you get a lovely warm welcome and they serve homemade cakes and sandwiches.

For something more substantial and formal there is The Swan at Lavenham which does fine dining lunch and dinner and also has a spa you can visit.

A little further afield, a short drive there is The Six Bells at Preston St Mary which cooks up lovely locally sourced produce.

Hollow Trees farm is a short drive from the house. There’s a brilliant farm trail with goats, sheep, pigs, llamas, and other cute things. There’s also a cafe which is fairly basic but it does the job if you’re all feeling a bit peckish.

There is also a place to watch falcons, fruit picking farms, and wild river swimming
