THE LOCATION

Brooklee is set along a quiet country lane around a mile and half from the wonderful medieval village of Lavenham close to the small village of Preston St Mary. The road sees very little traffic but has easy access through to the main A134 linking to Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds. Lavenham has a good Primary School, Doctors Surgery, and a good selection of shops including Co-Op, traditional grocers, excellent bakers, butchers, pharmacy, part time Post Office and lots of specialist shops and galleries. There are excellent gastro pubs and Preston St Mary itself has The Six Bells Pub, Church and small village hall. The market town of Sudbury to the South and the cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds to the North each provide extensive facilities and good schools, together with road and rail links to London and Cambridge.
