Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Woodbridge - PARTRIDGE LODGE

We welcome you to Partridge Lodge for luxury self catering holiday accommodation in the heart of Suffolk. Just a 5 minute drive from the popular market town of Woodbridge, this is an ideal location for holidays or weekend breaks within easy reach of Aldeburgh, Snape, Southwold, Orford, Bawdsey and many other beautiful Suffolk hi-lights.
Our self catering accommodation comprises of three excellently equipped child friendly facilities, The Farmhouse (sleeps 8), The Granary (sleeps 4) and The Dairy (sleeps 8). We set ourselves the challenge of providing all our self catering facilities with child friendly equipment that we know from our own experiences can lead to heavy and rather bulky packing which would be great to avoid.
Our plan has always been and remains one that Partridge Lodge should be a relaxing, interesting and fun place for families to come and spend their much prized holiday time.
Although there is (thankfully) no getting away from the beautiful Suffolk countryside and all the areas of interest that it has to offer.
We continue to build and share our now sizeable local knowledge of historic and fun things to do. We'll happily offer restaurant recommendations (which we'll book on your behalf if you like) From Bawdsey Quay to Sutton Hoo to Orford to Aldeburgh to Southwold to Thorpeness to Friday Street Farm Shop to The FarmCafe to the charm of Woodbridge itself, there is so much life and these are only some of our favourite places. It could be useful to know that we have also teamed up with “The Cook Shed” to offer our guests, chef prepared meals delivered to your door. (Click the 'Cook Shed' link below to read on Facebook more about what they do)
The feedback from our guests is always uplifting and gives us a real sense of purpose. We have been rewarded enormously over the last six years from editorial articles to awards and special star ratings .
April 2012 saw the Guardian run our latest editorial piece featuring Partridge Lodge.
Kind Regards, Sarah and Aaran.

About Sarah Henry
About us, In 2007 my wife, Sarah, and I decided to move away from city life. We bundled up our four kids and the furniture in search of a sense of reality that we had both enjoyed during our own childhoods.
We found and bought an old run down dairy farm and set about renovating it with the plan to turn it into a rural retreat for guests to come and unwind close by to the majestic historic coast in Suffolk that we so loved ourselves.
This has and continues to be a family project and our boys have helped right the way through with innovative ideas, giving us a valuable kids perspective on what real spaces should be.
Our Holiday lets are secluded enough to feel freedom and the grounds relaxed enough to have a wander and take in all the wild life, including owls, woodpeckers, kingfishers and deer that inhabit our surroundings. We also have our own fair share of 'wonders' from the chickens (with great tasting real eggs for breakfast) a petting rabbit (which kids adore spending time with), to our tree house, tennis court and football area, to our boat house and fishing pond where a monster three pound eel was caught last year. (The Pike, however, continues to allude anglers alike). We hope there is something for all.
Slightly further afield there are stunning walks through the footpaths from Partridge Lodge which one way guide you to the beautiful Boulge Estate where lies, in a quiet secluded churchyard, Mr Edward Fitzgerald (translator of Omar Khayyam). Amble in the other direction and find yourself in Bredfield village itself, with a local pub, The Castle and the Village Shop to investigate.
Our latest venture's include facebook (a living history of life and holidays at Partridge Lodge). Our river kayak tours and weekend events (including guitar workshops, yoga seminars and Special Occassion hire).

Why Sarah Henry chose Woodbridge
We are idealy set amongst a rural peaceful idyl just outside Woodbridge, with a wonderful local community in Bredfield with its community shop, play ground and local pub with good food (its a lovely walk over a footpath from Partridge Lodge). Our lets have their own unique sence of style, space and independance here, with plenty of space in and around the grounds to explore.
