Manor Farm

At Manor Farm there is no compromise. You can enjoy the best of country life and still have all the comforts of four star accommodation.

Opening Season

Friston village has a large central green. Nearby are the interesting church and recently restored post mill (not open to the public). There are many footpaths around the village and further afield. Only four miles to the coast is the unspoilt town of Aldeburgh or the somewhat more rural beach at Thorpeness. Just three miles to Snape Maltings, the waterside venue for speciality shops, the highly acclaimed Concert Hall, good food or just for varied walks alongside reed beds and the tidal estuary. There is an excellent, varied range of pubs/restaurants at both Aldeburgh and Snape. This is an ideal location for exploring the forests and heaths of this unspoilt coastline.

At Manor Farm there is no compromise. You can enjoy the best of country life and still have all the comforts of four star accommodation. The farmstead is approached over a private drive with well wooded countryside and often with cattle, sheep or racehorses grazing alongside. These are superb stable conversions and ideal for larger groups if taken together. In addition, a horse livery is available on site and special rates are avilable for guests wishing to bring their ponies/horses. The livery includes a menage and there are miles of farm tracks to be explored on horseback. Part of the Victorian farm buildings, the cottages are self-contained and set away from the farmhouse. You will normally be able to see plenty of livestock and other farm activities. Coarse fishing is available on the farm pond and there is use of the family’s hard tennis court and a lawned football area. Kingfisher Cottage (sleeps 4 + 2), Swallow Cottage (sleeps 4 + 2), Avocet Cottage (sleeps 2 + 1) and Heron Cottage (sleeps 2 +1) are all part of a luxury stable conversion – ideal for larger groups if taken together. Shop: 1 mile Pub: 1 mile.
