Elms Farmhouse

Wangford, Suffolk
Sleeps 18

About the property

Situated just 4 miles from the Suffolk coast of Southwold, Elms Farmhouse is a stunning grade II listed building dating back to the 15th Century.  Rumour has it that Voldamort actor Ralph Fiennes spent his first few years as a child in this very house.

Nestled up a quiet country lane, this beautiful farmhouse sits back from the road with plenty of parking to the front.  To the front of the house, there is a games room to the right complete with table football and pool table.  To the left, is a walled garden which is secure should you wish to bring your four legged friends of the dog variety with you on your visit.   To the back of the house, is a spacious and private garden with a large heated pool within an enclosure for all year round swimming.  

Inside Elms Farmhouse, everything about the house oozes history and period features.  The large country style kitchen is very well equipped to cater for a full house of 18 and has seen many a meal easily rustled up.  There is also a useful breakfast room immediately next door which doubles up as another relaxing area / children’s play area.  The lovely lounge with flat screen television and soft seating for 18 is ideal for relaxation and has a working open fire for those colder wintry evenings.  The house also boasts a wonderful dining room which is  perfect for the whole household to gather around for dinner.

In this large holiday house, there are 8 bedrooms and 4 bath/shower rooms (1 ensuite).  All bedrooms have crisp white Egyptian cotton linen and excellent quality duvets to ensure a lovely and relaxing night’s sleep.

This is the ideal big house to rent as a holiday home for the whole family to relax and entertain in.

The property is located in Wangford which has a local village shop, farm shop, 2 pubs, a veterinary practice and petrol station.  Just under four miles away is the quintessentially British seaside town of Southwold with its sandy beach, beach hut-lined promenade and pier, fabulous shops and boutiques, and of course home to Adnams Brewery.  The stunning beaches of Walberswick are well worth a trip out to visit and walk along being just 7 miles from Elms Farmhouse.   The village also has a small centre of shops and a couple of pubs.

The whole area is geared up to the upmarket tourist trade and there are numerous attractions for all of the family to explore: beautiful Suffolk villages; medieval castles; RSPB Minsmere; the burial ground of Anglo Saxon Kings Sutton Hoo; Jimmy’s Farm; golf courses;  the Suffolk Punch Trust and many many more…..
