An ideal venue for extended families and friends wanting to holiday together.

The formal beamed dining room with a wood burner and large table allows the whole party to celebrate and dine together in style. Sumptuous Abbey Farm is a beautifully renovated house that offers comfort and luxury in equal measure.

Centrally positioned on the Norfolk/Suffolk border with an easy road network to explore the delights both counties have to offer. For guests seeking food or drinks away from the home, a popular wedding venue hotel is just over a mile away, with bar and restaurant which serves good food. There is also an outside play area to keep the younger children entertained.
The Suffolk Heritage Coast is only 25 miles away, where you can visit Southwold with its famous pier, Aldeburgh for its abundance of great food and restaurants, and Lowestoft, the most easterly point in the UK.

If a drive isn’t in your plans, you can put on your boots and explore on foot.
