Lodge Farm can be taken as a whole for larger parties or as three independent cottages for smaller parties; separated by interconnecting double doors. This rural retreat is contemporary with modern and eco luxuries complemented by stunning views across rolling pasture grazed pedigree Red Poll cattle and horses in the distance.

Life has recently been restored to The Dairy, after its agricultural existence was moved to more modern facilities in the 60's. This fantastic holiday cottage with three bedrooms and plenty of living space enables holiday makers to relax in style. The property has been finished to a very high standard and is perfect for families and couples. The double height sitting room and full height windows really bring the 'outside in' making the most of the spectacular views. The Dairy also benefits from its own private decking area where you can enjoy the magnificent views surrounding the cottage. The Dairy (Sleeps 6), The Parlour (Sleeps 4) and The Buttery (Sleeps 2) are all part of Lodge Farm and are available individually or jointly for larger parties of up to 12 people, using interconnecting sound proof doors.

Freston is a charming little village just a few miles south of Ipswich, next to the River Orwell.  The area is home to the Suffolk Food Hall (run by the same family), which is a nationally recognised farm shop and restaurant selling the best of Suffolk.  Only a few miles away is Jimmy's Farm made famous by the BBC, which is a great attraction for all the family. There are several private roads around the farm, along with a network of guided footpaths and cycle paths to explore.  Enjoy the river by land or boat and savour a well-earned drink at the Butt and Oyster pub in Pin Mill.  Alton Water recreational facilities are also within cycling distance.
