Potash Farm Cottage is situated equidistant between Sudbury and Bury St. Edmunds on the outskirts of the hamlet of Thorpe Morieux (pronounced M’roo) – a small group of houses and a church, set in undulating countryside of the River Brett valley – one of the last places in Suffolk you cannot hear the hum of distant traffic. Lavenham to the south is believed to be one of England’s finest old wool towns with extensive shopping, an exceptional range of restaurants, galleries and amazing timber-frame buildings display centuries of wealth. Ipswich, Bury St. Edmunds and Stowmarket have a wider range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. The mainline rail link to London’s Liverpool Street (49 mins) accessed via Colchester.
