Thyme offers a unique and fun take on self-catering holidays in a cute little Shepherd Hut in rural Suffolk. Located in the middle of a beautiful meadow with another Shepherd Hut on site and surrounded by stunning countryside we are sure you will fall in love with this charming alternative to a holiday cottage. Connected to mains water and electricity you will not be without your home comforts! Thyme is finished to a very high standard, with a kitchen area complete with microwave oven, fridge, hob and washbasin and a cosy dining area perfect for a romantic meal. The sofa in the sitting area converts into a double sofa bed for a nights rest and there’s also a shower room. For extra cosiness, light the wood burning stove and relax. When renting Thyme you have your own private outdoor area to sit back, relax and do a bit of star gazing.
Thyme at Boundary Farm is part of a small group of holiday cottages located in six acres of gardens, woodland and meadow just on the outskirts of the popular market town of Framlingham close to the village of Saxtead. Comprising of three separate holiday cottages as well as two charming Shepherd Huts, the holiday cottages at Boundary Farm can be booked together to accommodate larger groups of guests.

Framlingham is a small market town that is rich in history and heritage. There is a 12th Century curtain-walled castle where Mary Tudor was proclaimed Queen and historic Saint Michael's church. Framlingham College is an imposing mock-gothic building overlooking the Mere, a lake which is a haven for wildlife. Saxtead village which has its own pub – The Old Mill House, and English Heritage’s Saxtead Green Post Mill, which dates from the late 1500s, is still functioning and well worth a visit. Both are a short stroll from the farm. Aldeburgh, on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, is just fifteen miles away and other places to visit include the beautiful villages of Constable Country, Minsmere bird reserve and Snape Maltings. There are a number of cycle routes walks in the area and there is a good range of shops and places to eat in the town.
