About the Property: A house with centuries of history, 11a Theatre Street?s exterior and interior are a  testament to its fascinating past. The house was first cited in 1577, when the building was set up as The Free Grammar School by Thomas Arnott. The school is believed to have consisted of a single classroom at the front of the property before closing in 1607. It was then used as the Woodbridge Workhouse until 1867 when it was purchased by a timber merchant and steam sawyers.

The current owners have removed many of the 20th century wall coverings to reveal the fine old beams, fascinating wood carvings and stripped wooden floors. Every room has been completely refurbished and there is new furniture and fittings throughout. In one of the highest spots in Woodbridge, there are magnificent views over the rooftops to the river in one direction and the attractive grounds of Woodbridge School in the other. The building also features a magnificent carriage arch with a fine carved wooden beam dating back over four hundred years, as well as boasting a beautiful balcony, perfect for lazy mornings in the sun.

Parking: There is off street parking for one car. Additional parking can be found in the car park just a couple of steps from 11a Theatre Street. Weekly parking permits can be obtained from the Tourist Information Centre. 

Exploring: Woodbridge is an ancient market town with many interesting historic buildings, including St Mary's Church, the Shire Hall and the old Seckford Alms Houses and Woodbridge Private School. There are a number of excellent (and ancient) Suffolk pubs, fine restaurants and a fantastic array of shops. The beautiful River Deben is a mere five minute walk away, with Sutton Hoo, Orford, Aldeburgh and the Suffolk coast all within a 15 to 20 minute drive.

Don?t fret, there is also plenty to keep the kids occupied; swimming at Deben PoolKingpin Bowling, cycling in Rendlesham Forest as well as activities unique to the area such as fossil hunting and sailing. For an unforgettable experience in one of Suffolk?s most scenic towns, book today.

Eating and Drinking: A short stroll into the town will bring you to the local amenities, including general stores, delis, bakers and butchers, greengrocers, fishmongers and quirky independent businesses. The Woodbridge Farmers' Market is held every second and fourth Saturday of the month; a great place to stock up on locally-sourced produce. There is also a regular fruit and veg market every Thursday. Click here for more on Local Food producers.
