LARGE LUXURIOUS COUNTRY HOUSE RETREAT MINUTES FROM SOUTHWOLD SUFFOLK

Photos and Description of this 8 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Wangford - Elms Farmhouse

Luxurious 8 bedroom Country house with indoor pool to rent for 3 days or more

Elms Farmhouse is a stunning 8 bedroom traditional farm house dating back to the 15th Century. The house sits on a lovely plot of 3 acres with ponds to both the front and rear. The property benefits from a large country style kitchen, big lounge with flat screen TV and soft seating for 18, useful breakfast room / 2nd lounge (ideal for smaller members of your party) and a large dining room, perfect for the whole household to gather around for dinner. There are 4 bath/shower rooms (1 ensuite) and, with the 2 reception rooms, this is the ideal home for the whole family to relax and entertain in. A heated indoor swimming pool is in the grounds and the house benefits from a newly refurbished Games room, with full size pool table, dart board and table football.

Each bedroom boasts new luxury mattresses and linen. The Kitchen is fully equipped to allow you to prepare fantastic meals to enjoy.

The gardens are perfect for your children to play in or for you to relax in.

Elms Farmhouse is located on a quiet country lane just a few minutes from the lovely village of Wangford which boasts two lively local traditional English pubs and a busy, well-stocked local shop. The house is only 3 miles outside of the radiant and very attractive sea-side town of Southwold, famous for it's pier and the Adnams brewery. Southwold, known as 'little chelsea on sea', has all the facilities that your group would wish for, catering for all levels from local caught fish and chips right up to award-wining fine dining. The local landowner also hosts the hughly popular 'Latitude Music Festival', where 30,000 music lovers gather for a weekend of music from leading pop and rock artists from around the world. Think Gastonbury for the east coast. Don't worry, you can't hear the music from the farm house.

This region is part of the Suffolk Heritage coast and is also only a short drive from Beccles, the Suffolk access to the Norfolk Broads (that's right, they stretch quite a way into Suffolk).

Also within a short drive are many excellent tourist attractions including (but not limited to):

Lovely Walberswick, with excellent coastal walks and two fantastic pubs;

The ancient buried town of Dunwich (now a very quaint village and nature reserve);

Jimmys Farm (owed by the TV presenter and friend of Jamie Oliver);

Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park, Lowestoft, for white knuckle rides;

Lavenham, one of the 20 wealthiest towns in England in medieval times, which has retained an almost perfect medieval market square and an Anglo Saxon Mead Hall - this is one of my favourite villages in the UK;

Long Melford - a village who's wealth was derived from the wool trade. Many of its 15th century dwellings survive today. Additionally Long Melford boasts the longest High Street in the UK, which is full of antique shops and small café’s, as well as the stunning Kentwell Hall;

Framlingham and it's ancient castle and beautiful town centre;

Suffolk’s idyllic landscape inspired Constable and Gainsborough to capture the fleeting light of English countryside and sky in paint. Constables name will be linked forever with Flatford Mill and Dedham Vale, both just over the border in north Essex - the area is known as Constable Country;

Sutton Hoo at Woodbridge is one of Britain's most important and atmospheric archaeological sites, famous as the site of the burial of an ancient Anglo-saxon king and his ship.

Aldeburgh, with it's art galleries, shops and restaurants, also famous for the Aldeburgh Music Festival;

Beautiful Clare and surrounding countryside walks;

Orford, a wonderful small town, famous for the brilliant local pubs and as access point to Orford Ness wildlife reserve, as well as the unique polygonal towerkeep of Orford Castle, which stands beside the pretty town and former port which Henry II developed in the 1160s;

Bury St Edumds, a charming city with the Abbey ruins and quaint lanes filled with shops, cafes and resturants;

Colne Valley Railway at Castle Hedingham, a fully preserved steam powered railway line;

Numerous bird sanctuaries set up by the RSPB

Wangford is an ancient and traditional Suffolk village located an 8 minute drive away from Southwold and the beautiful Suffolk heritage coast.

The area boasts numerous attractions and lots to do for all the family. There are stunning walks and award-winning pubs, bars and restaurants aplenty.

There are literally hundreds of walks, numerous nature reserves and bird sanctuaries.

The Suffolk Coastal region remains one of the UK's foremost tourist destinations, appealing to families, groups of friends and individuals alike. This area is ideal for larger groups, with lots on offer to keep everyone happy.

There is a lovely large swimming pool in the grounds which is housed for all year round swimming. The Games room was recently refurbished and contains a full size pool table, table football & darts board. We are keen to ensure that guests have the most amazing stay at Elms Farmhouse, so, if there is any item that is important to the success of your stay, please contact us in advance to see if the item can be arranged for you (if it is not already at the property). Wheelchair access is not perfect. The house is very old, and built in several stages. There are therefore slight steps to accommodate different ground floor levels. This is normal for houses of this age and standard. However, these small variances in floor levels makes wheelchair access awkward, but not impossible. Doors are wide enough to allow access
