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). The house has 4 bathrooms, (1 ensuite, 1 ‘Jack and Jill’, 2 family) each newly re-fitted.

The East Anglia / Suffolk region
East Anglia boasts the driest weather in the UK. The whole area was home to the Angles before the arrival of the Romans some 2066 years ago. It was the largest and most developed area of civilisation for many years to come, with the Romans making their capital in the area. In medieval times, the area was home to a thriving wool trade and other important industries as well as farming. Some of the towns, such as Lavenham and Clare, became very prosperous and managed to hang onto their importance and grandeur even until now. Whereas Dunwich, the largest port in the world at one point, all but disappeared into the sea. Southwold and Aldeburgh expanded and are now sophisticated & cosmopolitan seaside towns, attracting thousands of visitors each year. The east Suffolk coastline is considered one of the best in the UK and there are numerous areas of designated interest or outstanding beauty as well as lots of activities and tourist attractions.
The Southwold / Wangford area
As East Anglia is a major tourist destination, the area hosts lots of attractions too numerous to list here. They range from large 'disney' style theme parks to nature walks and local museums. Do check out google for websites that list these.

We were a party of 12 plus four dogs, ages ranged from 6-78, a great time wasa had by all. The pool was sooo warm, and the cosy fire in the lounge at night just right for an April night. the kitchen was better equipped than my own, and TWO dishwashers was great, We loved the huge dining table, big enough for all dishes to be put out. All rooms were lovely and plenty of bath and shower rooms. It was great having breakfast room with TV for the kids, and the games and books. We went to Southwold Quay and walked across to Walberswick, The Quay has fresh fish and prawns etc, also Fish and Chips. before having a meal in the Lord Nelson. Elms Farmhoiuse is perfect for large groups as it is sooo spacious. lots of nooks and crannies, kids loved exploring. We will all return again for a longer stay, well done to the owners for such a great rental property. Didn't get to the Local pup as we had a great time in the evenings at the house, to good to leave.

We had a fantastic time - the house is wonderful and perfect for a big group like ourselves. Sometimes properties are advertised as having space for a certain number when in fact its a real squeeze.... more

We have just returned from 5 days here. we were a large group aged 6-78. EVERYONE thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is massive with huge rooms, not crowded at all. Plenty of room for us all to relax and also eat TOGETHER. The pool was surprisingly large and lovely and warm. The beds were also extremely comfortable.Great location too...could not fault the place...will definitely return!
