Lavenham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 26, 2008 -- Suffolk is a county of wide open skies, outstanding coastline, rolling countryside and a range of quality destinations.

Whether choosing Suffolk for the first time or for a return visit, there is always something new to discover and enjoy in this quintessentially English county. It is typified by its picture postcard villages with quaint pink thatched cottafe and themany market towns that are full of hidden treats, including fantastic places to eat, quality boutiques, arts, crafts and a wealth of cultural experiences. The landscape that so inspired artists such as John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough is just one of the peaceful destinations ideal to explore on foot or bike on the quiet country roads.
Nestling in the Suffolk countryside, between Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury, The Swan Hotel in Lavenham is perhaps one of Englandâs most iconic hotels.
