Nestling in the grounds of Belchamp Hall with lovely countryside all around, Lovejoys is located on the Suffolk/Essex border and is part of an 18th Century stable block. Beautifully converted into luxury holiday accommodation, Lovejoys is the perfect romantic retreat for couples and is conveniently placed just a one and a half hours drive from London - ideal for those looking to escape the pressures of everyday life!
As the name suggests, Belchamp Hall was a regular filming location for the popular BBC series Lovejoy, indeed Lovejoys Apartment was formerly infact the lovable antiques dealer's workshop in the second series! Sitting amidst beautiful countryside, from Belchamp Hall you can cycle the pretty lanes and take lunch in one of the pubs featured in the series, as well as visiting Lovejoy's popular haunts such as Long Melford. Lavenham, Finchingfield and Castle Hedingham are also nearby.
Guests have the use of a tennis court (rackets and balls provided) at Belchamp Hall, along with the large pond and walled garden to relax, where the peacocks roam. Bikes and a BBQ are also provided and there is a small garden area for alfresco dining.
Locally there are plenty of footpaths around the estate and beyond, with Belchamp Brook, a charming mill pond and woods nearby, along with a pretty 14th century church, with fascinating mediaeval paintings, across the road.
There are plenty of great pubs, restaurants and farm shops nearby - all you need for an idyllic relaxing break in a picturesque setting.
