About Abbey Farm

Abbey Farm is a beautiful farmhouse with space for up to 10 guests to stay comfortably in five bedrooms. The layout is perfect for large or extended families or groups of friends, whether they are enjoying a fun annual get-together or staying in the area for a celebration like a wedding or a special birthday. The house has plenty of room both indoors and out to also be suitable for organisers of boot camps, retreats or workshops, while the location on the border between Norfolk and Suffolk is perfect at any time of the year.

The farmhouse is in an idyllic spot between Eye in Suffolk and Diss in Norfolk, surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to the region's favourite sights and attractions. A great way to start exploring and get your bearings is via the circular walking route that leads from the front door. Alternatively, take advantage of the relatively flat landscape and the house's secure bike storage and plan some leisurely rides in the countryside. Thetford Forest is about a 25-minute drive from Abbey Farm to give even more choice of places to walk and ride.

A day at the seaside is within easy reach as the beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coast is approximately 28-miles from the house. Take your pick from Southwold's fabulous beach and pier (serving very good fish and chips!) and Lowestoft or Aldeburgh in easy distance both of which have a great choice of restaurants selling fresh crab and lobster.

Eye is a pretty village with a church dating back to 1470 and an excellent choice of amenities. Diss is bigger than Eye with a Friday market and popular delicatessens for those who take their cooking seriously or who love to eat well. Local attractions include Banham Zoo, Oasis Camel Park, Framlingham Castle, Bressingham Steam and Gardens, and the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary. Yaxley Fishing Lake is less than three miles from Abbey Farm and well-stocked with carp and tench.

Further afield, the ancient city of Norwich has a plenty of sights to see as well as place to eat, drink and shop or perhaps you'd prefer Ipswich or Bury St Edmunds - both of which are approximately a 45-minute drive of the house.

With such a lovely setting inside and out, so many attractions on the doorstep and a location that is conveniently accessible, Abbey Farm is a superb choice if you are looking for a large holiday home to get all your friends and family together in comfort and style.
