Historic Grade II Listed Suffolk Long House

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Farmhouse in Finningham, Nr. Eye, Suffolk, England - Village Location, excellent walking and cycling.

The garden has two large open areas for ball games. There are also croquet and badminton sets. Large Games Room with full size snooker table. Four reception rooms on ground level. Within easy reach are Lavenham and Constable Country, southern Norfolk Broads, Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and Southwold.

Starting in mid March, we are developing two barns that sit to the front of the house (not in picture). The works will not affect the house at all, although the front drive maybe a bit muddy. The developers will not be working at weekends.

About the Owner

We have been living in this beautiful home for 10 years and have decided to share it with you. It is a Grade 11 listed building and is a wonderful party house, ideal for groups of every age who want to enjoy the peace and countryside of Suffolk. It is our home and we hope you feel at home in it. We have kept personal photos and pictures out to keep that feeling of homeliness and comfort. We really hope you love our house as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I booked this house for my 50th birthday. I was looking for somewhere

special and large enough to accommodate my family and close finds and this

place was perfect. Oozing with period charm, from the feature staircase and

entrance hall to the tudor fireplace and exposed beams, the 7 good sized

bedrooms - including a fabulous master suite with super-kingsize bed -

ensured that everyone was comfortable.



There is plenty of entertaining space, with a well equipped kitchen which

became the focal point for the weekend, along with the beautiful dining

hall and cozy living room. There is also a huge games room that kept my Dad

and friends happy to the wee hours playing snooker.



The grounds are superb and in my opinion these pictures just don't do them

justice. Massive sweeping lawns ensured there was plenty of space for all

of us to spread out and enjoy a wonderful weekend in the sun, playing

croquet and drinking fizz.



Kaye was extremely helpful with our booking. She hooked us up with

excellent local caterers and pointed us in the direction of some lovely

local pubs and eateries, so all round round an excellent service.



I cannot recommend this place highly place enough if you're looking for

somewhere special, packed full of character and located in the heart of

beautiful Suffolk countryside within easy distance to local sites and

amenities. I have every intention of staying there agin - enjoy!

big birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house providing the perfect setting for a big birthday bash with all the family. The large table meant that we could all sit down for a celebratory meal cooked from an online shop placed the week beforehand and in the evening lounge around in front of an open fire. The local pub was quaint and although there was no pub grub they were happy to make some sandwiches and nibbles for us at the last minute on the day of arrival. Lovely weekend and would be very happy to recommend this venue which surpassed the advertising photos.

An Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The rooms were bigger than they looked on the internet. The house was very clean, spacious and cozy. I was impressed the property had two fridges and it was very well-equipped. The gardens surrounding the property were beautiful. I truly recommend a stay here - I will definitely be going back.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for those kind words, delighted it all worked so well. Green Farm is an excellent place from which to base yourselves for day trips to the coast, shopping and history in Norwich or just down the road to stunning Bury St Edmunds.

A fantastic house - perfect for entertaining!

  • 5 of 5

Green Farm is a fantastic house - perfect for get togethers and entertaining. It is a beautiful property and the photos really don't do it justice. We loved the homely feel that it had! It was well equipped and despite the rather rainy weather we still had a great time playing snooker and darts in the games room. When the sun finally came out we made the most of the stunning grounds. Kaye, the owner, is fantastic. She answered all of my questions very quickly and ensured that we all had a fantastic weekend get away. I would have no hesitation in recommending Green Farm!

Thank you Kaye!

Lovely country property

  • 5 of 5

Green farm was a characterful and very spacious family home that gave 14 of us a really comfortable base for a lovely weekend in rural Suffolk. A lovely property for weekends away and to meet up with other families. The owner was very helpful and we would like to come and stay again in the future.

Location

Activity and Interests

Travel:

Car essential to get to Green Farm and for site-seeing.

Distances:

Bury St Edmunds 13 miles

Stowmarket 5 miles

Diss 8 miles

Aldeburgh approx 30 miles

Lavenham approx 20 miles

Further Details:

Bury St Edmunds has a market on Wednesday's and Saturday's. The town is crammed full of history (Ickworth House for example), beautiful restaurants and lots of independent shops. Lavenham is an historic market town full of beautiful beamed housing dating back to the 1300's. Woodbridge is on the River Deben and also has a wealth of restaurants, cafes and independent shops. Aldeburgh is on a pebble beach and well worth a visit, although dogs are not allowed on the beach at the town between May - August. However, there are plenty of fabulous dog walks a couple of miles further up the coast at Thorpeness, which also has an excellent pub and mere for sailing. Nearest train station is Stowmarket, 90 minutes to London Liverpool St.
