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

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.

    This was our 3rd stay. It's just brilliant. It is about as far away from it all as you can get. There is a new fridge freezer in the utility room so previous concerns over fridge capacity are gone. The indoor pool is large and warm. You can sit out in the sun in the splendid grounds and listen to birdsong and have a working farm in the background. If you want the two Jack Russels Dottie & Crumble will play ball with you or Oscar the ram will try to talk with you. There ar two well stocked ponds that add to the charm. There are good and interesting walks to the fishery or the hard to find priory ruins. St Peters Brewery is not far and there are a couple of good pubs within a few miles for eating out. All this plus over 500 years of history.
