Property writer David Vincent finds a pretty former lodge cottage which is going on the market for the first time.
The Essex and Suffolk borders has some really beautiful countryside.
It is little wonder that this part of the country, the border villages of West Suffolk and North Essex, was chosen as the setting for the adventures of roguish antique dealer Lovejoy, from the novels of Jonathan Gash.
The Belchamp Walter estate had a key role, and was the home of Lovejoy’s upper-class friend Lady Felsham in the TV adventure series.
Fictional Felsham Hall was the site of his workshop and often featured in plots in the series as well.

The area still provides lovely countryside today to enjoy, and is just a few miles drive from Long Melford, Sudbury and Clare with the market town of Bury St Edmunds about 15 miles away.
This enchanting lodge cottage, surrounded by farmland, is for sale for the first time on the instructions of the Belchamp Hall Estate.
