Pilgrims is a sweet Suffolk holiday cottage so perfect for exploring the delights of Lavenham and the surrounding county. Opposite the building famed for its role as 'Godric's Hollow' in the 'Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows' film you really do get a sense of Lavenham's charm without having to step out of the door. To the rear of the property is a relaxing cottage garden with plenty of attractive plant life to enjoy. The seating area to the top of the garden makes the perfect place for a morning cuppa whilst you plan your day's adventures. For those who wish to discover the area by foot, there are plenty of footpaths to enjoy - if you're not feeling as energetic, then Lavenham itself is teeming with plenty of independent shops and eateries - you won't be bored!

We had a fantastic stay in Lavenham to celebrate my 60th. Can really recommend the Swan Hotel's spa and the Lavenham walk to Long Melford. Loved the cottage - beautifully presented and the little touches such as the tissues in the rooms, sweets on the side and welcoming biscuits and milk made all the difference.
