Rectory Manor is considered to be one of the finest rectories in Suffolk. Set in three acres of delightful gardens including an orchard and herb garden, it lies at the heart of a tiny quintessentially English village replete with thatched cottages and a Norman church.
Nestled between the medieval village jewels of Lavenham and Long Melford, there are a plethora of places to visit for the ‘historical enthusiast’: Melford Hall, Kentwell Hall, Gainsborough House, Flatford Mill and Ickworth to name but a few.
The establishment provides 5* bed and breakfast accommodation with a Gold award from Visit England, across seven individually designed guest rooms. Use of a tennis court, croquet lawn and seasonal swimming pool, plus roaring log fires, honesty bar and the services of a much-praised butler help make for a uniquely special stay.
The award-winning breakfasts, served at a medieval banqueting table, include produce sourced from acclaimed local family businesses and seasonal spreads include home-grown figs, apricots and mulberry jam.
Rated by Tatler magazine as one of the 12 smartest B&Bs in the country, the average guest review score is 9.5/10. Rectory Manor has been bestowed with many accolades including, in 2019, being shortlisted for the ‘Best Bed, Breakfast and Beyond’ in the UK.
