Property details

The School Room is positioned in the West Wing of a fabulous moated farm house set in rural Suffolk and is ideal for a couple wanting to do very little or as a centrally located base for a week of exploring Suffolk.

The School Room has its own private entrance and a beautifully renovated interior. The kitchen provides everything you could want and there is a large wet room located downstairs with a walk in shower. The sitting room has a wood burning stove to make your stay cosy whilst upstairs there is king-size sleigh bed. There are sensational views of the gardens and moat from all the windows and lots of parking for cars within the grounds.

The School Room is situated in nearly an acre of hedged enclosures with the main farmhouse surrounded on three sides by a moat with a bridge into a large orchard. Twin herbaceous borders, a winter walk, minimalist pool, croquet lawn, mature trees, rose garden, grasses, hosta and fern beds and an autumn circle are all available for guests to enjoy. The garden is open to the public for a few short days in the summer as part of the National Garden Scheme but our guests get to enjoy it in their own time.

Surrounding local area

Centrally situated in Suffolk, the coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh, RSPB Minsmere and the cities of Norwich and Cambridge are no mores than forty five minutes away. But so too is the rest of Suffolk: Historic Bury St Edmunds, the wealthy mediaeval wool towns of Long Melford and Lavenham, unspoilt villages like Debenham and Halesworth, stately homes and gardens, dozens of grade one listed churches (the village church has the finest single hammer beam roof in the country) and a vast assortment of other things to see and do.

A delightful find. Cosy, comfortable and full of character. Perfect place to discover Suffolk’s castles and coast. Delicious apples from the orchard.
