This charming Victorian Farmhouse is located within the peaceful rural setting of Boundary Farm, 1 mile from the historic market town of Framlingham and within easy reach of the Suffolk coast. It's full of character retaining many of its Victorian features such as open fire, wood burner, wooden floors and sash windows. It has been tastefully furnished to a high standard to offer luxurious and spacious accommodation, gardens and meadows. Ideal for all ages and gatherings of friends and families.
The Farmhouse is set well back from the road that links Saxtead with Framlingham and there are public footpaths and bridleways nearby in abundance.
Boundary Farm is located on the edge of Saxtead village which has its own pub – The Old Mill House, and English Heritage’s Saxtead Green Post Mill, which dates from the late 1500s, is still functioning and well worth a visit. Both are a short stroll from the farm.
The historic market town of Framlingham, complete with castle and mere, is five minutes by car or about half an hour via the footpaths. Less than half an hour’s drive away are the beautiful Heritage Coast towns of Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh to name just a few of the better known places.
Access and parking: entry is via a private driveway. There is ample car parking space beside the accommodation and storage for bikes if needed.
