About the Property: A more charming rural setting would be hard to find. A quiet narrow country lane leads you through woodland and past open fields to the tiny hamlet of Clay Common. Open the doors and windows and hear nothing but the wind blowing through the trees and birdsong. Totally private, The Homestead is set within a large, lawned garden with private off street parking. A morning coffee is a must as you soak in the early morning sunshine. 

A dog owners paradise, The Homestead looks forward to welcoming up to two dogs on holiday to Suffolk. The lawned garden is fully enclosed for larger dogs (of a Doberman size), however, owners of smaller dogs are advised to keep an eye on their wandering pooches. There are a plethora of footpath connections within a short distance of the front door - take the small gate around the side of the house and turn right into the surrounding woodland - do take your camera and binoculars with you as there is plenty to see. 

Cyclists too will love exploring the network of trails in the area - one in particular which runs outside the property, leads to the Hundred River at Rushmere. A trip along the back roads can even take you to the small town of Halesworth. A full breakdown of cycle routes can be seen here.

If you would prefer to hire bicycles rather than bring your own, speak to Surfwold in nearby Southwold.
