Hunt down Harry Potter

1 Night Itinerary

Chocolate-box Lavenham offers everything you could want from a place often called the Best Kept Medieval Village in England.

The charming market town played its part in the blockbuster movie, The Deathly Hallows Part 1 & Part 2, as Godric’s Hollow, the magical village where Harry Potter was born.

De Vere House in the town played the part of the Potter family home. The magnificent 15th century medieval home is painted a distinctive bright orange colour with timber frames all over the outside.

Fortunately for fans, the owners have put a room on Airbnb so you can come and stay here and pretend you are a guest of the Potters.

It’s said that De Vere House has the second most photographed doorway in the whole of the UK, only beaten by Number 10 Downing Street.

The Swan Hotel is also featured in the film.
