Overview

About the property

Recently converted

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 Suffolk

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.

Very clean, comfortable and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely loved our holiday. Very warm welcome from Amanda. I would recommend 100%.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful holiday home, extremely clean, with everything you would need and more to enjoy your stay. So peaceful and quiet making you feel at home straight away. We have been to the area before, so was very happy to return for a second time and will definitely return again. I can not recommend this location and holiday retreat highly enough. Thank you so much Amanda....

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is A1: ample-sized, well furnished, impeccably clean with an attractive garden. It even has Sky Sports! Amanda is a gracious host with plenty of good advice. Certainly recommended.

Wonderful stay with terrific hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and our host was so helpful and kind. Our girls loved the piano and we were even able to borrow guitars!

Amanda shared ideas for day trips and clued us in on an awesome fish and chip shop in nearby Aldeburgh.

We ate at the near by pub The Dog And Duck twice and made friends with the owners. The countryside was beautiful and relaxing. We had everything we could possibly need at the house and felt like it was our home away from home. Can't say enough good things about the experience. Thank you Amanda

Cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very spacious and cosy. Lovely soft towels. Easy walk to station, pub and children's park. Within easy distance of Orfordness which was a good day out even for our eight year old granddaughter who spent ages in the museum, Southwold perfect beach and Woodbridge. Great holiday for all the family.
