The Angel Inn Information


The Angel Inn at Stoke by Nayland... The Angel Inn is a timbered, 16th century coaching inn. In 1722 it was purchased from George Evans by John Williams of Tendring Hall, and became known ‘The Angel Inn’ in 1793 when it was let to George Simpson for £18 with a brewhouse, stables and two large orchards. Stoke by Nayland in the heart of Constable Country was the inspiration for many of Constable’s Suffolk landscapes. A village of timbered houses built on wool wealth, it sits on top of the Stour Valley with the 120 foot tower of St Mary’s Church a landmark for miles around – “..when the bells of Stoke by Nayland ring, all Suffolk stops to listen”. To this day The Angel Inn remains a traditional ‘coaching house’ at the centre of this idyllic Suffolk village offering contemporary comfort and luxury in an historic setting.
