In the Suffolk countryside, between Bury St. Edmunds and Sudbury, this beautiful 15th-century building offers 4-star accommodations and a restaurant with 2 AA Rosettes for its fine food. Lavenham is one of the best-preserved Tudor villages in Britain, and The Swan is perhaps one of England's finest historic hotels. The building has been carefully restored and beautifully renovated, with ancient oak beams, large open fireplaces and a minstrel gallery. Decorated in warm, relaxing colors, the rooms with private bathrooms combine historic features with modern facilities. Each includes a flat-screen plasma TV and facilities for making tea and coffee. The Swan serves modern British cuisine, made using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Guests can dine in the informal Garden Lounge and historic Old Bar. Outdoor dining is possible on the grounds, as well as fine dining in the Gallery Restaurant.
