Fall for Lavenham’s medieval charm on a romantic winter break

Lavenham, Suffolk

Cobbled streets, great shopping and quaint buildings make this village one of the most romantic places in the UK.

Lavenham isn’t perfect; here in England’s most preserved medieval village the doors are wonky, its mullioned windows bow and the houses are a bit skewwhiff - but that’s all part of the appeal.

Among the winding streets, you’ll find little tearooms, galleries and The Angel Hotel with its Marco Pierre White gourmet restaurant. And we haven’t even got onto the shopping; you can drop into the village perfumery, buy something unusual from The Cuckoo Flower boutique or browse the antiques at renowned dealers J & J Baker.

A day pounding the cobbles can really take it out of you, so afterwards head for Blaize Cottages where you’ll find king-sized beds, Sky TV and everything else you need to veg out.
