The Three Black Birds Guestbook






A beautifully-furnished, old, quirky house which was well-equipped and with lovely comfortable beds.
The housekeeper was extremely helpful.
We would love to stay again and would definitely recommend this house when staying in Lavenham.
Tips for other travellers
Lavenham itself is fascinating of course but we also enjoyed a trip to Bury St Edmunds and to the coast at Orford.

Elizabeth Sillars, 

The house has great character and was homely and very comfortable. There’s lots of space filled with interesting furniture. All the equipment we needed was supplied in the kitchen and elsewhere. It is in a great central location.
Tips for other travellers
A town full of character with so many old buildings. The place is also very quiet which makes for a relaxing visit. There’s a good choice of restaurants and tea/coffee shops. We went to Lavenham Blue Tea Room twice as it was so good! Once we had tea with lovely cakes, scones etc and the second time for coffe/early lunch. Number 10 gave us a great evening meal. The guide who told us about the Guildhall brought the place to life. The walk to Long Melford along the abandoned railway is good (but gets quite muddy!)


A beautiful cottage with lots of character and extremely comfortable !
Thank you for the lovely welcome basket and for a brief but enjoyable stay in Lavenham!
It was really cosy and a really great spot, right next to the High Street and the square !
Thank you.

Beautifully furnished and immaculate cottage. Very good starter pack with eggs, bread, wine, biscuits etc. Quiet location very close to the market place. Excellent restaurants within walking distance.

Richard White , 

Stayed at the Three Blackbirds with my family over the Easter weekend, and was delighted with the mix of character and comfort - there were all the period features - old beams, fireplaces - and the highest quality comfortable furnishings, including excellent sofas and beds. Positioned in the heart of Lavenham (one of the most beautiful towns in Suffolk, with all its timbered buildings), it was very convenient for shops and restaurants in the town, and for visiting places nearby, including Long Melford. Everyone loved it.

Tom Licence,

Susie Knox & family.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay here in August 2017. It is a beautiful house with plenty of space and is well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Lavenham is a beautiful town with lots to do nearby. We are looking forward to coming back to The Three Blackbirds and exploring the area some more.


A lovely house with everything we needed to make our stay relaxing and comfortable.

One of the best equipped properties that we have stayed in. It was so nice not to have to rush out to buy essentials when we arrived. Very clean and comfortable and a great position. The little courtyard was a real bonus-as the weather was so good we spent a great deal of time in it.
