The cottage is in the very heart of medieval Lavenham and yet it is close to great views and stunning country walks. Lavenham has many fine restaurants - the best of which is literally a few steps away - and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the very comfy beds and the cosiness. My place is good for couples and small dogs.

In a perfect location, being in the middle of the old square. Cosy and comfortable and, considering the number of tourists, very quiet. Very good local amenities too.

A fantastic stay at Peter's cottage. A car park space in a central location, a beautiful little garden and outdoor patio area out back, and the cottage itself is fantastic. The bedrooms are just beautiful and the beds comfortable. The wood burner gives a lovely homely feel and the cottage is decorated tastefully and in keeping with the cottage's lineage. A fantastic little kitchen which has been beautifully designed and lots of lovely finishing touches. The cottage is so quiet at night, it feels like a little secret place in the middle of town! Surrounded by lots of lovely restaurants and cafes. I would not hesitate to stay again. Arrangements were also easy and efficient.

Fantastic location, right in the heart of Lavenham, but quiet and peaceful at the same time. It was so lovely to have the private outside space, and the house itself was beautiful. Beds were really comfy, and the fireplace was such a lovely bonus. All in all, a lovely stay, and only 1.5 hours from London which was perfect for us.

The cottage was easy to find being in the centre of the village and was extremely clean and well maintained. It was ideal for us with our small Jack Russel as the garden was secure and the back yard too. Very practical solid brick floors meant it was easy to wipe up any water bowl splashes etc. Lots of good footpaths to walk straight from the cottage including the Lavenham circular walk. The parking space outside was definitely a bonus as the market square car parking area was always quite full. Athough central the house was nice and quiet overnight for relaxing evenings.

Peter's house is perfect for a stay in Lavenham. It is very centrally located (right in the middle of the market square) with it's only parking spot - very handy as the area can get busy. The house was well equipped and had everything we needed during our stay. We loved being able to sit out and have breakfast on the patio and have a glass of wine in the garden. The beds were wonderfully comfy too!

Response from Peter:
Hi Emma - thanks so much for the constructive comments. This is the very first time we have ever had guests at MKC in the summer so this is useful to know. I shall organise blinds or new curtains asap. Do you have (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)? Market Keepers Cottage has a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page and your review on there would help us enormously... I hope you'll come and stay again some time. Peter
