    “We spent a wonderful weekend at the farmhouse celebrating a big birthday with family and friends.”

    The house is spectacular; it has clearly been renovated using the highest quality materials whilst retaining every bit of original character. It spraws over three floors and each room has been carefully decorated in keeping with the age of the property, apart from the bathrooms which are contemporary and newly installed. The kitchen is lovely: huge, and equipped with everything you might need for a holiday with a large group. The kitchen and dining room became the centre of our large group ...

    The house is spectacular; it has clearly been renovated using the highest quality materials whilst retaining every bit of original character. It spraws over three floors and each room has been carefully decorated in keeping with the age of the property, apart from the bathrooms which are contemporary and newly installed. The kitchen is lovely: huge, and equipped with everything you might need for a holiday with a large group. The kitchen and dining room became the centre of our large group for meals, games, and talking late into the night. There is a single bedroom on the ground floor with easy access to a bathroom which would suit an infirm person - just a single step up and down between the two rooms - but the house is not otherwise suitable for anyone with reduced mobility as the two staircases are narrow and steep, as expected in a house this old. The garden was where we spent much of our days: playing rounders and on the large open grass area or just lying on the lawn to sunbathe and chat. There are nice benches on the patio which seat plenty of bottoms, a couple of huge old trees to lie under, and a pond which is home to a heron and lots of waterfowl. It is so peaceful, with no other properties around. Some of us began the day with a cup of coffee in the small adjacent barn which has one side entirely open so we could watch the heron fly in with a fish in its beak and listen to the birds, which is the only sound you can hear. There's plenty of parking. At one point we had eight cars parked comfortably when friends visited for the day. I wouldn't want to be the person who has to clean such a large, rambling property, but it was immaculate throughout. Big thanks to whoever takes on that task! We found that the simplest way to locate the farmhouse was to input only the postcode into our satnav as it's one of the only properties in the entire postcode. The satnav took us straight to the farmhouse. The owner Mick was so helpful and welcoming, and was available at all times, including prior to our stay, via phone and WhatsApp to answer queries. We would all recommend this property to anyone. It's wonderful.

About the location

LEISTON

Aldringham 1 mile; Thorpeness 3 miles; Aldeburgh 4 miles.

Leiston is located in the heart of the Suffolk Heritage Coast and offers excellent links to the popular seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh. The town thrived by manufacturing steam tractors, and cast and machined metal products, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The town is now home to many of the workers of the nearby power plant, Sizewell, and is served well by an active leisure centre and the oldest purpose-built cinema in Suffolk, which today offers the latest digital 3D projection systems! The 14th century remains of Leiston Abbey lie northwest of the town and its high street has a good range of shops, banks, pubs, restaurants and takeaways, plus a Post Office and a library. RSPB Minsmere is a short drive away towards the coastline of the Suffolk Heritage Coast, which offers lovely walking opportunities through this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
