A handsome house surrounded by large gardens and sheep-dotted fields. Maggie’s home is filled with beautiful things: old family china, prints, portraits, blue and white decorated lamps, polished wood – a piano you can play too. Bedrooms are peaceful and pretty; ‘Rose’ is reached up a few steps. Breakfast is well worth waking up for: granola, compote, homemade jams, home-buzzed honey, sausages and bacon from their own pigs; sourcing local food is a passion and Maggie loves to cook, so dinner will be equally good. Set off for Constable country, charming old wool town Lavenham, antiques in Long Melford, the coast… it’s a fascinating spot.
