Suffolk longhouse dating to 1420, with beams, wood burning stove, swimming pool and wild flower garden, Bungay close by.

This delightful detached holiday home is a fine example of a Suffolk longhouse dating back to 1420 with carved ceiling beams and oak floor boards. The indoor heated swimming pool is private and for guests exclusive use (open between April and the end of October). Set in its own large area of garden with magnificent views over open countryside, the spacious beamed farmhouse, which includes a wood-burning stove in the living room, is the perfect location for a family holiday, a celebration break or a get-together with friends. The property is beautifully secluded and set on a working farm with livestock. Three acres of trout lakes nearby offering fly fishing and abundant wildlife.
The hamlet of St Nicholas South Elmham is steeped in history and surrounded by the beautiful rolling countryside of the Waveney Valley. South Elmham Hall, with its ancient ruined minster and farm café, is reached by footpath. A short drive away is the historic town of Bungay, gateway to the Broads National Park and notable for its wide range of antique shops, restaurants, pubs and other specialist shops; bicycle and canoe hire is also popular. Nearby is St Peter’s Hall with its award-winning independent brewery and restaurant. A little further along the Waveney is the attractive market town and boating centre of Beccles where day boats can be hired to explore the Broads.
The bustling city of Norwich, with its fascinating castle museum and Theatre Royal, is within
40 minutes’ drive. Also within half an hour’s drive is the Suffolk Heritage Coastline with the famous seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh, the RSPB bird reserve at Minsmere and the smaller but equally charming villages of Dunwich and Walberswick. Shops and pub 3 miles.

    Excellent hosts who made us feel so welcome. A beautiful cottage with plenty of room for us 8 adults and 2 babies. The cottage has all the equipment you need for a comfortable stay and the pool was used everyday as it was the perfect temperature and a great size. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

    If you want olde worlde charm in a quiet location then this is it. The house dates back to 15th century but has most mod cons. Be aware though that soundproofing between a bedroom and the room below is non existent so bedroom assignment may need thought. No problem for 4 adults though. A couple of the old doorways are about 6ft. The broadband speed is enough to stream TV so if you have an App and can plug into the TV HDMI socket can you can watch your usual pay channels. There is now a new fridge freezer in the kitchen as well as in the utility room - so plenty of food space. The grounds are just lovely with two ponds - one full of hungry carp. There are birds a plenty and a family of Moorhens were fun. The adjacent paddock homes Oscar the ram and his small family. The heated indoor pool set in the grounds is unlikely to be rivalled in size. This is an idyllic get away from it location. There are some nice walks - see if you can find the mysterious lost South Elmham Minster. This was our 4th visit and we will certainly return next year.

    Beautiful house in a quiet, and peaceful setting. The swimming pool was fantastic as was the spacious accommodation and equipment provided. Owners were friendly and helpful. Overall a perfect holiday setting if you want to get away from it all and relax.
