Clavering Gardens


Popular village with many C16/17 timber-framed dwellings. Beautiful C14 church, village green with thatched cricket pavilion and pitch. Chestnut Cottage is 1-acre cottage garden with sweeping lawns and wide flower borders, opposite Clavering Ford. Lots of pathways and seats to sit and contemplate, and stunning views over the medieval heart of the village. Come and see ‘The Little House’, (open), built in 1760 and reputedly the smallest thatched cottage in England. Middle Street is the medieval heart of the village with the ford crossing the River Stort. Piercewebbs has formal old walled garden and yew hedges complementing handsome red brick house. Shrubs, lawns, ha-ha, yew with topiary, stilt hedge, pond and trellised rose garden. Landscaped field walk. Best views in the village. Plant sale at Chestnut Cottage.
