Information on buying, selling, building and maintaining property in Lavenham
Set in the beautiful lush, low rolling countryside of Suffolk it is easily one of the most desirable places to live in East Anglia, situated 18 miles west of Ipswich, 11 miles south east of Bury St Edmunds and 18 miles north of Colchester.
Full of antiquities and famous for its historic beamed wattle and daubed properties dating back to the 15th century, Lavenham has a truly rich past based on the wealth of the wool and weaving trade.
Lavenham once economically competed with the best cities and regions in England and this is evidenced by some of the iconic buildings in the town such as the nationally admired Guild Hall and the authoritative Norman church at the top of the hill.
For the commuters, Colchester is only 40 minutes from London’s Liverpool Street station and Bury St Edmunds is 1hr 40 mins from either Liverpool Street or Kings Cross stations.
The A12 corridor gives easy access by road to Colchester and the M11 to Bury St Edmunds whilst Stansted airport is only 42 miles away.
Family life in Lavenham is laid back and tranquil bedded into an historically agricultural existence. Peacefull, but near enough to all the amenities the other larger local towns have to offer, Lavenham is an idyll for both families looking to put down roots and people wanting to retire.
