Appleby Cottage Hartest set on the village green in one of the prettiest villages of Suffolk. The cottage dates back to the 15th century, although not large it was one of the eight village pubs that was part of village life in the eighteenth century. In the 17th century it was changed back into a house and owned by one the village merchants. The barn attached to the house, originally stables, has now been renovated and changed into the delightful home of one our local artists.

Nearby in the village of Long Melford there are many antique shops.  At the end of the high road you will find Long Melford Hall which is owned by the National Trust also Kentwell Hall both with events throughout the year.

Lavenham some 10 miles away has the most interesting architecture in Suffolk also dates back to the 15th century.

The rolling countryside of the surrounding farmland is picturesque and has many great walks on the extensive footpaths of the area.

There is pub in the village which serves good meals at reasonable prices. All in all Hartest is a great place to relax and enjoy the peace of the English countryside.
