Framlingham is a small market town that is rich in history and heritage. There is a 12th Century curtain-walled castle where Mary Tudor was proclaimed Queen and historic Saint Michael's church. Framlingham College is an imposing mock-gothic building overlooking the Mere, a lake which is a haven for wildlife. Saxtead village which has its own pub – The Old Mill House, and English Heritage’s Saxtead Green Post Mill, which dates from the late 1500s, is still functioning and well worth a visit. Both are a short stroll from the farm. Aldeburgh, on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, is just fifteen miles away and other places to visit include the beautiful villages of Constable Country, Minsmere bird reserve and Snape Maltings. There are a number of cycle routes walks in the area and there is a good range of shops and places to eat in the town.

This was the first time my wife and I have stayed in a Shepherd Hut and it was perfect. Tina quickly responded to all messages around booking and check in. When we arrived at the hut it was in the middle of a field just as we had hoped and the inside exceeded all our expectations. A hut at the end of December may have seemed like an odd choice but the wood burner and amazing duvet meant we stayed nice and warm. Tina even left us eggs, milk, tea bags, sugar, olive oil and balsamic vinegar so we were well looked after. If you are looking for a break away from the rat race look no further!!
