Elms Farmhouse is a wonderful luxury Suffolk Country farmhouse of 8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, suitable for exclusive hire by groups of up to 18 people. It is located on the edge of the quaint village of Wangford, which boasts 2 lovely traditional country pubs within easy walking distance. The property is also only 3 miles from the delightful and trendy ‘Southwold’, with it’s famous pier, great beaches and fabulous shops, bars and restaurants. Elms Farm house, which dates back to the 15th Century, has recently been refurbished to a high standard, including the classic large and excellently equipped country-style farmhouse kitchen, with walk-in pantry and all the modern conveniences chefs of all standards would require to prepare meals for all the household.

It is located on the edge of the quaint village of Wangford, which boasts 2 lovely traditional country pubs within easy walking distance. The property is also only 3 miles from the delightful and trendy ‘Southwold’, with it’s famous pier, great beaches and fabulous shops, bars and restaurants. Elms Farm house, which dates back to the 15th Century, has recently been refurbished to a high standard, including the classic large and excellently equipped country-style farmhouse kitchen, with walk-in pantry and all the modern conveniences chefs of all standards would require to prepare meals for all the household. There is a wonderful dining room, with a huge table big enough for the whole group to sit around - very regal! After dinner, your party can relax in the large reception room arranged as a TV room, with internet TV, DVD and home cinema system, including a library of movies and music. There is another reception which is ideal for letting younger ones take over for those quieter moments. The house also boasts a small library available to guests use, for those quiet reading periods in front of the open fires or out in the private gardens. There are 8 bedrooms, arranged as 5 doubles, 2 triples & 1 twin. Each room is finished with luxury linen, duvets and pillows to make going to sleep an event in itself. Linen TOC count is 500 (average is 180). Bedroom 8 is a converted attic room with only ‘borrowed’ light and no window. It is small but does contain a full double bed and can house a couple comfortably. It has been happily occupied by hundreds of guests over the years but is clearly not quite of the same standard as the other bedrooms in the house. The house has 4 bathrooms, (1 ensuite, 1 ‘Jack and Jill’, 2 family) and all are on the first storey. There is a w.c downstairs. Elms Farmhouse sits on it’s own private plot of 3 acres of mature gardens and lawns. There is a covered private swimming pool in the garden for all year round swimming. The old farm 'office' has recently been refurbished into a lively games room, containing full size pool table, dart board and table football games centre. Elms Farmhouse is ideal for a large family & groups of friends looking for that perfect home to base their celebrations or simply to explore the famous Suffolk coastal villages and towns, along with all the many local attractions. Everyone will quickly relax and feel like they never want to leave. More
