Abbey House, a listed Victorian Rectory, is in an idyllic setting surrounded
by ten acres of secluded garden and meadowland.
The house lies hidden amongst the many magnificent old oak, beech and lime
trees in the grounds.
The light and spacious bedrooms are comfortably furnished and look out
onto the garden with its sweeping lawns, shrub walk and pond, home to
an abundance of wild fowl and black swans.
A heated outdoor swimming pool, which is available for the use of guests, can
be found in a quiet sunny corner of the garden.
The house has double bedrooms for guests each with a private or en-suite
bathroom and tea making facilities.
Guests have exclusive use of the dining room and drawing room with
its log fire and French windows leading on to the terrace and garden.


Abbey House is situated in the small village of Monk Soham, between Debenham and Framlingham. It is two miles from Earl Soham (A1120 Road), fifteen miles from Stowmarket (A14) and fourteen miles from Woodbridge (A12).

Places of Interest

Suffolk's heritage coastline with its many beaches and ancient towns is an easy drive away. Visit Southwold, a quaint seaside resort, or Aldeburgh, famous for its music festivals. The splendid Concert Hall is nearby at Snape Maltings with its collection of shops, galleries and craft centre.

The RSPB reserve at Minsmere is a must for bird lovers, while keen gardeners will enjoy Beth Chatto's garden, Helmingham Hall or East Bergholt Place.

Monk Soham is just 5 miles from the traditional market town of Framlingham, known for its Norman Castle. Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, is the site of an Angle Saxon burial ground.

Further afield days can be spent exploring Constable Country. Visit the medieval wool towns of Lavenham and Kersey or the cathedral city of Bury St Edmunds.
