The Old Pottery Bed & Breakfast

Sunny garden, wood-burner in the sitting room, great food – in pretty village with good pubs. A comfy country break on Suffolk/Essex border

Tubs of flowers at the door, Twiglet the dog to pat and a friendly feel throughout. Jacky moved from London to this charming village house and has restored and decorated with natural style: new oak floors, stripped beams, polished antique pieces. Bedrooms have well-dressed beds and thick curtains; the extra little room is just right for a child. Jacky is a good cook, so hop downstairs for a delicious breakfast – the best sausages and bacon or continental with home-baked ham; she’s happy to do light suppers, and makes Christmas puds to sell. There are fun events at the Norman motte-and-bailey castle; thriving Long Melford and Clare are close.

Radical Essex is a project re-examining the county in relation to radicalism in thought, lifestyle, politics and architecture. A programme of events will take place across Essex throughout 2016 and 2017, shedding light on the vibrant, pioneering thinking of the late 19th and 20th centuries. The project will celebrate the crucial role Essex has played in the history of British Modernism and its utopian ideologies under the themes ‘The Modernist County’ and ‘Arcadia for All’.

The Radical Essex site is designed by Fraser Muggeridge studio and Alex Rich, developed by Twelve.

Radical Essex is led by Focal Point Gallery in collaboration with Visit Essex and Firstsite. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England it forms part of the country wide Cultural Destinations programme, a partnership with VisitEngland, supporting arts organisations to work with the tourism sector to deliver projects that maximise the impact culture has on local economies.
