Relax into the serenest of surroundings as you feast your senses on the rolling meadows, a gentle breeze, the scent of lavender and the sound of birdsong. Welcome to your Suffolk country retreat.  

Serene Suffolk

Lovingly restored and converted into a supremely comfortable retreat for four, The Dairy is a traditional Suffolk wood-slatted building. This charming space has combined traditional with modernity to provide spacious accommodation across its two floors, both accessible by a convenient lift.

Inside, it’s pure tranquillity with white walls and original beams throughout the open plan ground floor. The living space oozes serenity in its whites and greys and enjoys views of the meadows beyond the giant French windows. You flow quietly through to the dining area with a striking dark-wood table and then on to the kitchen where light wood countertops sit calmly atop cream cabinetry and against elegant white subway tiles.

Outside the private patio makes the most of the Suffolk sunshine and provides the perfect spot for absorbing the sights and sounds of the countryside that inspired Constable so famously. Sit back, relax and catch the scent of the lavender against the soundtrack of birdsong.

Upstairs, you’ll sleep more than deeply on the sumptuous king size beds, set in calming whites and eggshell blues. Both bedrooms have stylish en suites and the master has French doors to a Juliet balcony overlooking the meadows to Lavenham.

The Dairy is also fully accessible – a handy lift connects the two floors providing easy access to the bedrooms and en suite bathrooms.

The pretty village of Preston St Mary is on your doorstep with the medieval delight of Lavenham just a mile away. Easily walkable from The Dairy, the town offers plenty to see and feast on since it’s something of a foodie paradise with many excellent restaurants and pubs.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The Dairy has two generously-sized bedrooms, both with king size beds and their own en suite bathroom, one with a bath/shower and the other with walk-in shower. There’s also a wet room downstairs.


Please note there is a large moat within the grounds therefore children should be supervised at all times. There are also free roaming chickens in the surrounding grounds. 


Lovely peaceful location with easy access to Lavenham on foot.
