Property Description

This delightful detached holiday home is a fine example of a Suffolk longhouse dating back to 1420 with carved ceiling beams and oak floor boards. The indoor heated swimming pool is private and for guests exclusive use (open between April and the end of October). Set in its own large area of garden with magnificent views over open countryside, the spacious beamed farmhouse, which includes a wood-burning stove in the living room, is the perfect location for a family holiday, a celebration break or a get-together with friends. The property is beautifully secluded and set on a working farm with livestock. Three acres of trout lakes nearby offering fly fishing and abundant wildlife.
The hamlet of St Nicholas South Elmham is steeped in history and surrounded by the beautiful rolling countryside of the Waveney Valley. South Elmham Hall, with its ancient ruined minster and farm café, is reached by footpath. A short drive away is the historic town of Bungay, gateway to the Broads National Park and notable for its wide range of antique shops, restaurants, pubs and other specialist shops; bicycle and canoe hire is also popular. Nearby is St Peter’s Hall with its award-winning independent brewery and restaurant. A little further along the Waveney is the attractive market town and boating centre of Beccles where day boats can be hired to explore the Broads.
The bustling city of Norwich, with its fascinating castle museum and Theatre Royal, is within
40 minutes’ drive. Also within half an hour’s drive is the Suffolk Heritage Coastline with the famous seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh, the RSPB bird reserve at Minsmere and the smaller but equally charming villages of Dunwich and Walberswick. Shops and pub 3 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We had an amazing time, we were two families (4 adults and 5 children) taking advantage of a piece of paradise in our own country. We chose a long weekend when the weather was at it’s hottest. Having been lucky enough to have travelled widely I can’t recall having such a relaxed time and the children had a ball playing in the pool. I would certainly revisit The Old Hall Farm again and am considering booking again next year, I would most certainly recommend it. May 2012.
  2. This was very different to the Villas we normally rent abroad. Being in such an Old House turned out to be very enjoyable for the whole family.The swimming pool was one of the features that attracted us and it was well used.A beautiful part of the country which we will explore again in the future. May 2012.
  3. To bring all the family together what an ideal place to stay. Country personified, how we wished we were still there, it’s every thing you would want for a farm house to have been built in 1420. There are not enough words to say how we enjoyed our stay. May 2012.
  4. We were looking for a special place to celebrate my husband’s birthday and we found it at Old Hall Farm House. We wanted something old with plenty of character to celebrate his birthday on the 24th December and to share Christmas with family and friends. It was an ideal location. The kitchen was a great size to prepare dinners and other meals. The owners of the property were very helpful too as we arranging the holiday from abroad. There is mention in the property description that the house is not suitable for people with disabilities and this is true. The flooring upstairs is as expected with a property dating back to 1420. However, we enjoyed the un-level floor boards. Dec 2011.
  5. The pool made our holiday fantastic. The weather was poor but the pool was a great way to keep the children entertained. The cottage was fantastic the children really enjoyed exploring the whole of the cottage. Aug 2011.
  6. The location and property were AMAZING! Worked so well for our extended family. We had 5 kids in the cottage but with the space and superb swimming pool they had such a great time and we hardly saw them. Great holiday and would recommend this to any one!!! April 2011.
  7. This is the best cottage holiday that we have had. The kitchen was fully equipped. Everything that was provided was of good quality. The icing on the cake was the beach and bathroom towels. Just love that log fire. Oct 2010.
  8. Clean & very well appointed. Oct 2010.
  9. Plenty of space for large family group. Interesting original 15th century features. Aug 2010.
  10. The accommodation was very clean and the bed linen was modern, crisp and white.Towels both bath, tea and beach were plentiful. The lounge was extremely comfortable and the kitchen was exceptionally well equipped with white porcelain and new pans. The swimming pool was a wonderful feature as when the weather was dismal it didn’t matter. Both children and adults in our party enjoyed the pool facilities which were totally private.It was a total retreat with only the farm animals as neighbours! The owners lived at the bottom of the farm drive if we required them, however they were very discreet and never bothered us. July 2010.
