Location + Surroundings

This secluded property is located on a 150-acre former farm, surrounding the village of Alphamstone. The farm is south of the ancient market town of Sudbury and North West of the large village of Bures. This family-owned farm boasts some of the best scenery in Suffolk, surrounded by traffic-free lanes, and dozens of footpaths linking the property to the new Stour Valley Path to the north of the farm. The farm is mostly comprised of grassland with small fields, original hedgerows, and beautiful wild flowers. Dedham Vale, a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is half an hour away by car.

On the grounds of the property, guests can see up to 57 species of bird, deer, badgers, and numerous wildflowers. The host's neighbor keeps a small flock of rare breed sheep, and guests can see them grazing on the farm. If guests wish to bring their own horse, the host has a grazing area and can arrange a day of riding on a 20-mile green route. The best way to explore the Dedham Vale is on foot. There are many circular or linear walks taking glampers off the beaten track and into some classic English landscape. In Alphamstone, there are farmer's markets to visit and three local farm shops offering a wide variety of local and organic produce. Nearby Lavenham is an ancient wool town full of timber-framed houses. Broakes and Chalkney woods are both open all the year and are two hours walk away. The Imperial War Museum at Duxford is 50 minutes away by car.
