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.

    We have a lovely family weekend to celebrate my brother and sister in laws 40th birthdays. Home owners very friendly. Very child friendly place to stay 😊
    Swimming pool was lovely. Child gates and fire guides provide. This was brilliant as we had young children. Basic household items provided ie, tea, coffee milk, washing powders. Lovely lake at the end of the lane

    8 adults stayed here for my husbands 60th birthday weekend. It was just fab ! The house was very comfortable, we all felt so at home , except my home isn't in the middle of the quiet countryside, and my home doesn't have a fab indoor pool , and I can't walk down the track to the lake from my front door either! We had a bar b q one night and we went to the coast too, but wanted to get back to ' our house !' It's got everything you need including a real fire and logs. The owner was very friendly but didn't bother you once he had shown us round, and told us a it about the house , his childhood home. We all said we would like to go back . We didn't have any children with us , and if you do take them , you need to be aware of the ponds close to the house ( which is stated in the description ) A great house for a party of 8 adults . Very pleased with our choice .

    If you want character and history with a touch of ancient atmosphere, together with all the mod cons this is the place for you. We loved it. Next to a working farm with sheep, bouncy lambs in season, piggies and lakes full of fish, it was the ideal venue for us. The swimming pool was used every day by four year old Freya and she absolutely loved it.
