Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Butley Abbey Farm, Woodbridge, Suffolk, sleeps 6-24 in 12 bedrooms.
Please note that this house has neighbours and is not suitable for parties, hens or stags - quiet groups only.
Butley Abbey Farm enjoys a secluded setting near the Suffolk coast within an AONB, surrounded by woods and fields. It is an oasis of peace and privacy, perfect for family gatherings, stylish celebrations or country weekends with a group of friends, and offered on a self-catering basis but we can find outside caterers if needed.
This Georgian farmhouse with its attractive façade overlooks a large garden, which includes a tennis court and croquet lawn. Behind it are the house's old farm buildings and the stately mediaeval Butley Priory gatehouse.
There's plenty of space to spread out, with the farmhouse offering 3 sitting rooms, all with open fires, and a large dining room sitting up to 24. All 12 bedrooms are spacious doubles with large beds, of which 4 can be twins. The entire house has recently been refurnished.
There are miles of excellent walking and biking through fields and forest on your doorstep. The Butley Creek estuary is 1.5 miles away, with a great range of bird life, summer and winter. Butley village and its ancient Oyster Inn is just 5 minutes by car.
The pretty coastal village of Orford is 15 minutes, or you can bike or walk there, using the Butley Ferry during the summer. Choose from sailing, crabbing and river trips from Orford quay on the Alde Estuary, or visit the famous Pump House Bakery and Chocolate Shop, the Butley-Orford Oysterage restaurant and several fine pubs. With its grocery, butcher and fish shop you need go no further for supplies.
For music lovers Snape Maltings, with year-round music, is nearby, and also hosts a Saturday Farmers' Market and a range of good shops. Aldeburgh is 20 minutes away, a handsome Victorian resort perched on the sea front with a range of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Golf courses are available at Aldeburgh, Thorpe Ness and Woodbridge, and for horse riders there is nearby Poplar Park.
In summer and winter alike, Butley Abbey Farm offers a beautiful setting with privacy and space.
