White House Farm is an impressive detached period farmhouse set in rural Suffolk in the peaceful village of Rumburgh, a charming rural village with a good historic local pub, The Buck, within walking distance which serves food and won CAMRA Suffolk Pub of the Year for 2012.
Rumburgh is close to Halesworth, a Suffolk market town with several options for eating out, great cafes, take-a-ways and lovely shops; just a short drive to the market town of Beccles on the edge of the broads with more restaurants and shops to choose from. The historic town of Framlingham is also nearby, with its fortress castle, traditional market square and stylish boutiques.
You can also enjoy visits to the popular coastal towns of Walberswick, Aldeburgh, Orford and Southwold nearby which offer a great range of entertainment for all of the family with popular pubs, shops and restaurants as well as the iconic Southwold Pier, which is a mixture of traditional fun and games and quirky, interesting amusements.
As you might expect in a period farmhouse, there are wonderfully wonky floors; (particularly upstairs), there are some low door frames; both staircases from the first to second floor are steep, turn and do not have railings;and the entrance to the king bedroom on the second floor is relatively tight so White House Farm is not ideal for guests with a mobility problem.
Please note that the pond at the front of the house is not fenced so children must be supervised at all times.
Strictly one (1) well behaved dog can be accommodated on request at the time of booking and is subject to our terms and conditions. Additional dogs may be considered at an additional charge of £50 per dog. The garden is fenced, however it’s not secure for dogs so you may want to bring a stake and rope to tether your dog and prevent it from running off.
Sorry, no smoking or unaccompanied teenagers.
