Beauty, comfort and luxury in an unusually large farmhouse with old world charm: Toad Hall lies in a rural position near Swilland village in Suffolk Coastal District. A genuinely rural area with active farming and little traffic on narrow lanes. The ancient town of Woodbridge is 5 miles away on the River Deben and has many fine restaurants, antique and book shops. The area has an abundance of villages with good food pubs, sites of interest (we particularly enjoyed Sutton Hoo and the Mechanical Music Museum) and riding, golf and fishing. And lambing in the spring.

In 2 acres of secluded gardens with a stunning outside dining area, this spacious listed C16 house, with inglenook fireplace, accommodates 10 comfortably in 5/6 bedrooms for weeks or short breaks (3 double 2 twin/bunk and the sixth bedroom is the 3rd reception games room which has an additional double sofa bed but we let to a maximum of 10 people). The house is well equipped with all modern conveniences along with a wealth of exposed timbers. An excellent good food pub with outside seating is within 15 minutes walking distance across fields or a little more along lanes. A very good riding stable is just along the lane.
