A cosy countryside boutique hotel in Suffolk, with award-winning dining - breakfast, dinner and more included


The Crown at Stoke by Nayland is the perfect boutique countryside retreat. Set in a historic village in the depths of Suffolk, this private and cosy village inn began life as a superb gastropub.

Dining at The Crown is a treat - it boasts a stellar reputation for delicious food and excellent service. Stoke by Nayland itself is a picturesque village built on a hill above the Stour and Box river valleys on the Suffolk/Essex border. The 120-foot tower of St Mary’s Church is a local landmark and features in the works of the 18th-century English landscape artist John Constable, who immortalised the surrounding Dedham Vale patch of countryside, now designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

All bedrooms have been designed with comfort and elegance in mind. There are king-size beds, baths with power showers (some with walk-in showers) and luxury pocket-sprung mattresses. Rooms all boast en-suite bathrooms with stylish fittings.


The kitchen here uses local produce where possible, whether it's sacks of potatoes from the Schwier farming family or trays of salads and herbs from Malcolm Kemp. Traditional breeds of meat, like free range Gloucester Old Spot pork, are supplied by John Coleman, and lamb comes from the Colne Valley.

A relaxed Sunday at The Crown has become a tradition for many customers, enjoying roast rib of beef with homemade Yorkshire pudding, horseradish sauce, local roast potatoes and fresh seasonal vegetables.


You're in a particularly peaceful and pretty pocket of countryside here, with Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep. Constable admirers can trace the artist's footsteps with specialised walks through the area, or simply branch out on your own to rove the landscape and follow the River Stour on foot or two wheels. The nearby village of Dedham has a number of good restaurants too, if you can tear yourself away from The Crown's temptations.
