Old Valley Farm is a beautifully refurbished, Grade II listed, 17th Century farmhouse, ideally situated in the centre of Walberswick with views over the dunes to the sea from upstairs. The house (the older half of Valley Farm) is a stone’s throw from the beach, next door to the excellent Bell Inn and 100m from the shops, tea room and playground on the village green.

A truly perfect seaside escape for families and couples alike, the property’s flexible layout comfortably accommodates eight adults and an additional two children in a combination of super-king, king, twin and bunk beds. Beautifully finished throughout, this property oozes character with exposed beams, woodburning stove and doors reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.  The kitchen is light and pristine with stone worktops, bespoke units and limestone flooring. The kitchen gives onto a large separate dining room, which is the ideal space for all the party to get together and make the most of the self-catering experience. From the dining room, large glass French doors open out to the garden. Recently landscaped, the garden offers a wonderful space for all to enjoy with outside seating and the patio of the house is a wonderful suntrap. The cosy sitting room has exposed 17th century beams and a wood burner, making the property a great option for winter breaks.

There are three beautifully furnished and spacious bedrooms in the main house and a further bedroom and bunk room in the Garden Studio. Two of the bedrooms in the main house offer zip and link beds, making this property ideal for families or for up to four couples. The high standard of accommodation continues out into the Garden Studio, located 20m from the house at the top of the garden.  It has been renovated to a high standard and provides a King size double bedroom and attached bunk room, ideal for a family of four or those needing ground floor facilities. In addition, there is private parking for two cars in front of the house and additional parking nearby.

For those with an interest in art, the house was once occupied by Philip Wilson Steer and stayed in by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
