The Cabin is set in a large garden at the rear of 98 Melford Road Sudbury.

The garden has recently been completely redesigned with a large pond, raised beds, a variety of grasses planted to create a Mediterranean atmosphere. At the end of the garden is a well-equipped summer house.

The Cabin in Sudbury is fully committed to the ideals of the Fairtrade Foundation and uses Fairtrade goods extensively. The Cabin has been awarded the Fairtrade Pledge Certificate.

The Local Area

Opposite the house is a gate leading on to the town’s famous water meadows, a protected site supervised by the Sudbury Common Lands’ ranger and his team. The water meadows surround the town on the south and west. There are numerous very pleasant, undemanding walks criss-crossing the meadows and the abandoned railway track.

Sudbury itself is an ancient market town with many very old buildings, including three splendid medieval churches and a number of houses dating back to Tudor times. A museum dedicated to the painter Thomas Gainsborough, who was born in Sudbury, is situated in the town. The town also has a very fine variety of shops and eating places. Its busy market operates on Thursdays and Saturdays and attracts many folk from the surrounding villages.

Sudbury provides easy access to a large number of picturesque villages, many of which are within ten miles of the town – Long Melford, well-known for its large number of antique shops, Castle Hedingham, with its magnificent Norman keep, Cavendish with its picture-postcard green and Suffolk-pink thatched cottages, Clare, with its beautiful church, Lavenham, famous for its beautiful preserved medieval buildings, especially the Guildhall, Kersey renowned for its ford across the road through the village – to name but a few! This area of south Suffolk and north Essex is rural England at its most peaceful and gentle.

Slightly further afield but still within easy driving distance, are the principal East Anglian towns of Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Colchester and Ipswich. If open country is more to your liking, then Constable country, centred on Dedham, with Flatford Mill close by, provides the essence of the idyllic English countryside. The coast, with Felixstowe, Clacton, Frinton, Walton on the Naze, Dovercourt and many other charming smaller resorts, is just over an hour’s drive away.

Melford Road is the main road, the A131, running through Sudbury on the northern side.

Access by road:

From the north – on entering the town along the A131, the Cabin at 98 Melford Road, Sudbury is on the left-hand side, just before the three-storey cottages begin on the right-hand side, exactly opposite the gates into the water meadows.

From the south - on leaving the town along the A131, in the direction of Long Melford and Bury St Edmunds, the Cabin Sudbury is on the right-hand side of the road, after the three-storey cottages finish on the left-hand side.

Access by rail:

A rail link serves the town, but only from the south – there is a regular service from London and also from Colchester, both requiring a change at Marks Tey.
