Atmospheric and beautiful: Toad Hall lies in the countryside near Swilland village in Suffolk Coastal District. Note pricing on this site not accurate - weekend rentals are between £650 and £780 and midweek short breaks from £540, off season weeks from £920. This is a truly rural area with lots of farming and little traffic on narrow lanes. The nearby ancient town of Woodbridge on the River Deben has super antique and book shops as well as swimming pool and bowling alley and the river Deben for boating or walking beside. The area is full of villages with good pubs, sites of interest (we particularly enjoyed Sutton Hoo and the Mechanical Music Museum) and riding, golf, fishing etc and the nearest beaches at Aldeburgh and Hollesley are just 30 minutes drive, with others all along the coast from Frinton to Walberswick and Southwold. In 2 acres of gardens, this very spacious Grade II listed C16 timber framed house, complete with inglenook fireplace, accommodates 11 comfortably in 6 bedrooms for weeks or short breaks. The house is well-equipped with all modern conveniences among a wealth of exposed timbers. There is an extra original back staircase which is quaint. An excellent good food pub with outside seating is within 15 minutes walking distance. A very good riding stable is just along the lane. Children and well-behaved dog (on ground floor only please) welcome! The house is centrally heated and also has a log burning stove in one of the sitting rooms. You should be warned that it is an old house and the staircases, whilst delightful for most, are possibly steeper than you may be used to and may not be suitable for someone with a disability. However, one of the double bedrooms is on the ground floor opposite the shower room (with WC) across the large sitting hallway.
Toad Hall is privately owned.
We have had the house since our now grown up children were small and after years of happy days there escaping from London we currently do not use it as much so we also let it out.
Some people who stayed at Toad Hall wrote, "The ten of us ... had just the most fantastic time and could have stayed for a month I think! The house and garden exceeded all of our expectations - what a treasure you have there. Living in London, escaping to the country is always great, but last weekend topped the charts in terms of all the weekend breaks we've taken together." One family who took a week wrote, " We had an absolutely wonderful time at Toad Hall. It has so much character and lot of things to do. We didn't want to come home and could quiet easily have stayed forever. In fact if you ever want to sell it let us know!! " and others wrote, "We had a fantastic weekend at Toad Hall - activities included bike rides up near Dunwich, long walks followed by food at the Moon and Mushroom. It was perfect for us all and we were all sorry to leave." Others said, "The photographs do not do it justice, it is much more beautiful". And others wrote, “House beautiful, garden gorgeous...
