We have lived in this beautiful rural location for many years, enjoying Suffolk and all it has to offer from Aldeburgh, Orford, Snape, Southwold, Walberswick and our heritage coast. Our farmhouse is steeped in character from the 16th Century with the barn being recently renovated. We have a beautiful garden and private parking. Downstairs is open planned with a piano and separate dinning room and laundry room. With wonderful french windows looking out over the garden. Upstairs has two large bedrooms one with option to have a super king bed OR two single beds and the other room has a king size bed, and a family bathroom. There is a children,'s playground in the village, a new pub and a great village shop. The station is five minutes walk from the barn, which goes to London, Cambridge and Nowrich Ipswich and more. There are many wonderful walks, we are also close to Rendlesham Forest where they have wonderful bike rides (and a bike hire place) a great kids area and a pick-nick area. We are twenty minutes from Minsmere which is wonderful for bird watching as well.

About Amanda Hall
My parents moved to this property 35 years ago. We used to live in London having the train in the village is a great bonus. I am a specialist painter and have a workshop show room five minutes away at Bentwaters Business Park, which is very convenient for traveling to and fro.
Amanda Hall purchased this Barn in 1980
Why Amanda Hall chose Woodbridge
Church Farm House is a very beautiful thatched cottage located in this quiet village of Campsea Ash. The garden backs on to the beautiful church yard. This property is also very central for commuting to Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Orford, Southwold,Walberswick and Snape.
What makes this Barn unique
We live in the main part of this house which is a very pretty 16th century thatched cottage. We have a beautiful garden which our guests staying in the Barn can stroll around. There is a fenced in bit of the garden for the guests so they can be more private, which has a gravel terrace and a lawn.

Spacious, comfortable and well-equipped with a lovely peaceful garden
The photographs really don't do full justice to this lovely cottage. The downstairs area is large and very nicely furnished with French windows leading out to the garden. The kitchen is well -equipped. The 2 bedrooms are large and comfortable.There is only one bathroom but, as there is also a downstairs loo. we didn't think this detracted from our stay at all. The owner lives next door and was there to welcome us when we arrived. The cottage is attached to the owner's house but is not over-looked at all. It has a great deal of privacy and we never felt "semi-detached! The village is peaceful and within easy reach of interesting towns and lovely beaches.The weather was glorious when we were there so there really was nothing to complain about during our stay. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
Wonderful cottage in a great location!
A lovely, relaxing weekend mini-break at this wonderful cottage in rural surroundings. Plenty of room for us (two couples) and great views from the French windows into the mature rear gardens, with a suntrap to enjoy a leisurely morning coffee.
Amanda made us feel so welcome, and we really appreciated the very useful 'welcome pack' on arrival.
The only problem was our visit was too short! We would definitely like to come back!
Wonderful, comfortable cottage with everything we could possibly need
We loved our stay in this comfortable, spacious cottage. It was really well equipped, with a lovely welcome and welcome pack - thank you Amanda! It was great to sit in the garden in the evenings and Campsea Ashe is so convenient for visiting so many places - we'd love to return.
How kind. Thank you. We loved having you to stay. Thank you for leaving the cottage so clean. You were so lucky with the weather!
This was our second time staying here, and enjoyed it as much as the first. Great cottage.
The cottage is so relaxing and in a great location for visiting Orford, Aldeburgh etc. It’s very spacious yet feels cosy. Recommended.
A real treat!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous cottage. It is beautifully decorated and spacious with a lovely view over the garden. It is very well equipped with every thing you might need away from home. The beds are really comfortable too! Amanda had decorated the house for Christmas with a real tree and left a hamper of lovely goodies as a welcome treat. It really was a very special treat to spend Christmas here. I really hope we will come here again! :)
Very clean, comfortable and well equipped.
Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and the house was extremely comfortable and set in a lovely garden. Handy for all the major areas of interest and surrounded by good local pubs. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at the property.
