About the property

Five Bedroom House, Sleeps 10

A traditional Suffolk beamed detached house - the jury is out as to

whether it is a Suffolk Long House or Hall House - set in a couple of

acres of private garden in a charming countryside setting, perfect for

walkers and cyclists alike. A house full of history, Woodhall Manor is

both spacious and cosy - with three log burning stoves it has to be.

Very much a country house, Woodhall Manor is just a couple of miles

from Diss and within a very short drive of five wedding venues.

Diss 2 miles, Framlingham 19 miles, Beccles and the Broads 22 miles,

Norwich 24 miles, Bury St Edmunds 22 miles, Southwold 30 miles

Trains - Diss is just a few minutes drive away; on the main line from

Norwich to London, there are train services every 30 minutes.

This Suffolk Cottage Holiday Property:

A traditional old Suffolk house, Woodhall Manor is in a rural location

on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Thrandeston. The property has all

the hall marks of a traditional Suffolk Long House. Beamed throughout,

taller guests will have to duck to get through some doorways. A

stunning inglenook fireplace in the sitting room with log burning

stove, a contemporary log burner in the ground floor bedroom and

a Romesse pot belly stove, dating back to World War II, in the

kitchen, you are unlikely to be cold. As well as a solid oak front

door, floor boards throughout are the original broad boards once so

common in traditional properties in Suffolk. The house has been

tastefully refurbished and includes two new bathrooms.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one with king sized bed, a

small double and a bunk bedroom; all decorated and furnished in keeping

with the feel of the house; they are light and airy with vaulted

ceilings and exposed beams. The upstairs family bathroom is extremely

spacious and includes from a large bedroom and includes a bath and

large walk in shower, wash basin, and w.c.

The ground floor bedroom is perfect for guests who either don't want to

cope with stairs or would like their own relaxing space (large

comfortable sofa and wood burning stove).

Grounds and Surrounds:

Woodhall Manor has a large garden with drive for at least 4 cars. The

garden is hedged on one side, fenced on another and separated from the

fields on one side by a shallow hedged ditch. The garden includes

large areas of lawn, shrub borders, flowering trees and an ancient

order with some quite rare species of apple and pear and a mulberry.

There are several seating areas as well as a veranda at the back with

table and chairs and charcoal barbecue, a delightful sun trap terrace

for outside eating.

There is a deep pond in the neighbouring garden which could be accessed

by a determined child or inquisitive dog - when out in the garden

please do supervise small children at all times.

A perfect location for walkers, cyclists or anyone with an interest in

history or wildlife Woodhall Manor is close to the Suffolk Norfolk

border in an area rich in historic treasure and wildlife sanctuaries

including Redgrave and Lopham Fen, a wild watery landscape of sedge,

rush, heath and hundreds of pools created over many centuries by local

people as they eked out a living, digging peat for fuel and cutting

reed and sedge for thatching. With well over 270 plant species,

including many national or regional rarities, the fen boasts a

diversity of plant life to satisfy even the keenest of botanists.

Thornham Walks is a delight, there are paths suitable for pushchairs

and wheelchairs and lots of other delightful walks - dogs are welcome

if kept on their lead.

Animal lovers of all ages will love a day out at Banham Zoo, just a 9

mile drive from the house whilst West Stow Saxon Village is a must for

all ages.

Eye is a very small town. Dating back to Roman times it was once

strategically important, thus the fascinating Eye Castle and

splendid church; the town hall is Italianate and there are many

fascinating old buildings throughout Eye. There is a good choice of

shops, all of which are within a very easy walk of The Thatched House.

Sleeps: 9-10 in two bedrooms with king sized beds, two double bedded

rooms (access to one of the doubles from one side only) and 1

bunk bedroom with full sized bunks.

This property is ideal for:

With accommodation for up to 10 and a ground floor bedroom and shower

room Woodhall Manor would be ideal for a larger family, a group of

friends or indeed wedding groups - it is close to five excellent

wedding venues. For shopping Diss has a good selection of supermarkets

and some really excellent local shops offering a wide choice of local

foods. Many will want to make the most of the fantastic facilities of

Eye, make a visit to the castle but allow time for a visit to Cocoa

Mama, the chocolate is divine.

Minimum hire: Three nights; except at Christmas and Easter when it is a

week. Friday changeover in high season.

Please note smoking is not permitted. One well behaved dog is welcome

and can have the run of the utility room and kitchen

Self-catering eating and drinking: Grocery deliveries are available

and there is a great selection of catering options for your stay at

Woodhall Manor. You can walk from the house to Diss via Lows Lane in

Palgrave (this brings you out in the middle of Diss avoiding the two

narrow roads with no footpath).

A traditional market is held at Diss Market Place every Friday from

09:30 until 15:00 and the Diss Farmer's Market comes to town on the

second Saturday of each month from 09:00 until 13:00. Diss has a

choice of 3 supermarkets. Eye too has a great selection of shops

including two Co-op supermarkets, two butchers, a flower shop, a

delicatessen, a bakery and a chocolate shop. There is an

award-winning, weekly Country Market in the Town Hall (Wednesdays)

where fresh produce and home made cakes and preserves are available.

Eating out:

Diss has an excellent selection of eateries, from super tea shops to

restaurants; there is even a vegetarian restaurant. There are

around half a dozen local cafes and several eateries in Eye including

three pubs, the nearest being the Queen's Head and there is a good fish

and chip shop - we have yet to try them all, but we are working on it.

Suffolk website.

Pets information: Pets are allowed at this property by prior

arrangement only. Extra charge may be payable (up to £20 per pet per

week). Please contact the holiday cottage agency directly after booking
