“An excellent example of a revamped village inn, now a popular meeting place for lunches and dinners, even breakfasts, on the open plan ground floor with several distinct eating areas, a two-sided bar and kitchen open to view. Excellent wine list. Beyond the terrace, with great views across the countryside below, a pretty new weatherboarded building houses 11 simple bedrooms and excellent bathrooms for overnight stays in this charming village.”

“The Crown Stoke by Nayland, an historic privately owned village Inn has a reputation for making everyone feel welcome - without pretension - simply a passion for good service, food, wine and real ale. To complete the picture a boutique Hotel has been created - eleven stylish luxury en-suite bedrooms individually designed and furnished.
Stoke by Nayland, 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 countryside of The Dedham Vale, which is now designated 'an area of outstanding natural beauty.”
