Toad Hall is in an area full of village pubs (nearest is excellent and just a 15 minute walk) good walks and sights of interest. We particularly enjoyed Sutton Who Saxon burial discovery and the mechanical music museum at Cotton. The beeches at Hollesley, Thorpeness Aldeburgh, Dunwich and Walberswick are within 30 minutes or more drive. The Green King brewery and Adnams brewery at Southwold is also interesting.
Toad Hall is a large C16 oak beamed house with inglenook fireplace and a wonderful atmosphere. On the ground floor is a large games room with table tennis table, a winter sitting room, a summer sitting room, a sitting hall and a large well-equipped farmhouse kitchen with dining table for up to 12, plus dishwasher etc and walk in larder, more formal dining can also be arranged in one of the other rooms. Toad Hall has six bedrooms: one en suite double, two further doubles next to bath/shower rooms, one of which is on the ground floor and suitable for the less able, one large twin room, one small twin room, currently arranged as bunk beds (full adult size) and one single room. Additionally there is a cot and a twelfth adult can be accommodated. There are three bath/shower rooms.
Toad Hall is generously set in its own grounds with plenty of parking, gardens to three sides and fields to the fourth. There is a fabulous striking granite dining table for 12 on a side terrace surrounded by willow and shrubs with garden dining chairs and cushions. There is a revolving summer house in the old orchard and a pond for endless hours of fun dipping a net. The pond is not too close to the house but you are advised not to leave small children near it unattended. There is lots of grassed space and a badminton set and great trees to climb with supervision!
Toad Hall, in its own 2 acre wild gardens, is in a genuinely rural position with wonderful walks on a criss cross of footpaths and deserted lanes in Suffolk, with a fantasic independent food pub just 15 minutes walk. Toad hall is 5 miles inland from the ancient town of Woodbridge on the Suffolk heritage coast and under two hours drive and about one hour's train from London.
