The parish is located approximately four miles south of the cathedral town of Bury St. Edmunds, with its Abbey gardens and vibrant mixture of shops and restaurants. The historic old wool towns of Lavenham and Long Melford are just a few miles away, as are the many picturesque villages of this part of Suffolk. We are also close to Sudbury - famous for the artist Thomas Gainsborough. Constable Country and the Suffolk heritage coast are also within easy reach.
Both villages have great pubs - the Red House at Stanningfield (01284 828330) offers cask ale, bar snacks, en-suite accommodation and weekend entertainment. The Manger at Bradfield Combust (01284 386516) offers cask ale and a full restaurant menu. Bed & breakfast accommodation is available a short distance away at Church Farm (01284 386333).
