Cavendish is one of the most famous and prettiest villages in Suffolk, set in the lovely countryside of the Stour Valley. It has a fine green, magnificent parish church, a duck pond and a wonderful selection of period houses and cottages. Cavendish has a local Post Office and small general stores, together with two public houses, a primary school and a village hall. Wider amenities can be found in the larger villages of Clare and Long Melford, each within easy drive, and both having doctors' surgeries and Co-operative stores. The market town of Sudbury to the east and the cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds to the north both provide further amenities, together with road links to the west with the M11, Stansted Airport and Cambridge. Sudbury has a train station with shuttle trains through to the main London and Colchester line with fast services on to Liverpool Street.
