Luxury self-catered Christmas break in Lavenham

If you love the idea of spending the day in your pyjamas, dancing to Christmas songs in your slippers and spending time with the ones you love, but still like the idea of getting away this Christmas, The Priory Dairy might be just what you're looking for.

The Priory Dairy is a charming 13th-century cottage located just across the road from The Swan. With three double bedrooms sleeping up to six adults, a spacious lounge with dining area, private courtyard and equipped kitchen, it really is the perfect base to escape this festive season.

Lavenham is certainly a very popular place to visit during the most magical time of the year and it's not hard to see why. The high street dazzles as Christmas lights hang from every corner, boutique shops burst with delightful gifts for oneself or your loved ones, and a genuine community feel of Christmas spirit all around. With so many local establishments to visit, of which most are dressed in twinkling lights with log fires crackling and warm welcoming smiles, Lavenham can quickly feel like home.
