Opening Season

Shimpling is tucked away in peaceful countryside and close to some of Suffolk’s prettiest villages. Clare, Cavendish and Long Melford are all close by, as is Lavenham, which is a true picture postcard village with timber framed houses and a wonderful church. There are a number of places of historic interest in the area including Kentwell Hall, Long Melford Hall and Gainsborough House. Historic Bury St Edmunds offers good shopping and dining facilities, as does Sudbury which is eight miles away.

The Cartlodge, Maltings Farm is a fabulously converted single storey farm building, situated in a courtyard setting with private garden.
