The property

You're welcomed into the entrance hall at the heart of the house, originally the village butchers shop, with the exceptionally well equipped and stylish dining area to your left, and access to both reception rooms, the large shower room and carpeted stairs rising to the first-floor landing. All bedrooms are individually designed with deep sophisticated colour schemes, supremely comfortable beds and a fascinating collection of antique bedside tables, dressing tables, chests of drawers and fine wardrobes. Earl Soham is a village to the west of the historic market town of Framlingham, with an award-winning butcher and delicatessen as well as the Victoria public house serving food and beer from the village microbrewery. Gated off road parking for two cars is on the drive at the side of the house which leads to the rear garden, partly laid to lawn with a paved terrace which will be furnished for outside dining. Ground Floor There are three entrances to this gorgeous holiday house; guests are likely to use the one from the parking area into the kitchen with others opening into the hall, and one from the living room. The hall runs through the center of the house with the kitchen/dining room to the left, drawing room to the right, living room and shower room at the back. Original quarry tiles run through the majority of the ground floor with wood in the dining area. Carpeted stairs rise to the first-floor landing.

The handsome aged butchers block sits in the middle of the room, giving extra workspace and, on countertops there's also a Nespresso Magimix coffee machine with aeroccino, Smeg mixer, toaster, kettle and a microwave.

About the location


Saxmundham 7.5 miles; Aldeburgh 14 miles; Southwold 20 miles

The beautiful market town of Framlingham is mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) and has been known since Anglo Saxon times, when it consisted of several manors which William the Conqueror (1066-1087) presented to Roger Bigod. The town is of particular interest as it has a large castle and mere which was built between 1190 and 1210. The town is surrounded by lovely villages to explore and has two of the oldest working post boxes and one of Britain’s smallest houses, with the footprint measuring 6.1x2.2m! Today, the town offers a number of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and it is also home to Framlingham Summer Arts Festival.
