  • "Brook House is a great, home from home cottage."

    Super comfortable, well equipped and spacious. We loved our weekend at Brook House and can recommend the Victoria pub in the village for Sunday lunch. We hope to stay again.

  • "What a wonderful haven for a family made homeless by Storm Babetand the subsequent floods in the Deben valley."

    Warm, dry, beautifully appointed and close to home. Brook House has been our refuge in a tough time.

  • "We had a wonderful week in your beautiful home, we appreciate all the little touches and thoughts to make this a very comfortable stay."

    We loved the beds, bedding, pillows and the outdoor seating area. The whole area is very interesting and we shall definitely return. Thank you

  • "Really comfortable house which had excellent fixtures and fittings and provided us with a great holiday."

    Art work made for a wonderful 'gallery' and really added to the appeal of the house. We were concerned that the Chubb lock on the front door didn't match the plate, so couldn't be locked. We also had to buy coat hangers as there was a shortage in the wardrobe. Couldn't get the hang of the toaster, which appeared to be stuck in bagel mode. Google couldn't provide an answer! These minor negatives didn't detract from the holiday, however.

  • "What a delightful escape to enjoy some fresh air and great company at your gorgeous home."

    We had the best time sitting by the cozy fire, enjoying snacks from Huttons nearby, and getting to spend time with good friends. We were all loving long walks, long talks, and plenty of rest and relaxation.

  • "A lovely well equipped property tastefully decorated."

    Very spacious bedrooms although there was 2 bathrooms (one upstairs & one downstairs) did feel it needed an en-suite or third toilet. Hot water too hot. 2 lounges but each lounge not enough seats or big enough for 8 adults. Kitchen/dining room great. Didn’t find the table tennis table! However really enjoyed our stay over the New Year with walks straight from the property lovely part of England.

    Thank you for your feedback. It is wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed your holiday at the beautiful Brook House. We have passed your feedback on to the property owner who has confirmed that as a result they have ordered new sofas for the property to boost the level of seating and comfort. We hope to welcome you back to Brook House again soon! Property Owner

  • "Television room was very uncomfortable even though we under occupied the property."

    The other lounge without a TV had very uncomfortable seating. The games room was not as listed. Dog and cat bowls left out was off putting in the kitchen. Too many personal belongings in the property

    Thank you for your review of Brook House. We are pleased that you enjoyed your break away here, and are happy to confirm that the owner has taken all of your feedback on board, including ordering an incredibly comfortable looking new sofa for the television room! We hope to welcome you back to Brook House again soon. Property Owner

The property

Framlingham 3.6 miles.

Brook House is located close to Framlingham in Suffolk and originally the village butcher’s shop.

Brook House offers an inviting holiday home spread across two floors and is perfect for family and friends to come together and enjoy their self-catering holiday.

On the ground floor is a spacious accommodation perfect for socializing, the sitting room with generous seating is particularly inviting with its bold colours and wood-burning stove oozing style, in addition there is a family room ideal for those looking for some peace and relaxation in front of the wood-burning stove.

There is a bespoke fitted kitchen/dining room which was formerly the butchers shop, now converted to create a space that’s certain to entice any budding chefs, whilst the dining table allows the rest of a party to pull up a seat and keep the chef entertained.

Located at the rear of the property is a handy shower room, perfect for washing those sandy toes after a day exploring the Suffolk Coast.

Upstairs there are four sumptuous bedrooms, offering a welcoming space to retreat too, complete with family bathroom with separate shower.

Brook House is within easy reach of the East Suffolk Heritage Coast which has loads of beautiful walks and cycle rise with some breath-taking views along the way and both Orford and Aldeburgh are both just a short drive away offering a traditional English experience at its best.

Southwold is home to the famous Adnams Brewery which is well worth a visit and if you fancy any more tipple tours then check out the English Whiskey Company, Shawsgate Vineyard and Valley Farm Vineyard, all within a short drive.

Other attractions include Framlinghams famous ‘Castle on the Hill’, Halesworth Museum, Oasis Camel Park, Go Ape Thetford, Ellough Park Kart Circuit and Yoxford Antiques Centre and Gardens.

If you fancy more beach action then pack a picnic and head to Southwold, Aldeburgh, Dunwich or Walberswick.

For more than a thimble-full of enjoyment, book a relaxing break at Brook House.

About the location


Saxmundham 7.5 miles; Aldeburgh 14 miles; Southwold 20 miles

The beautiful market town of Framlingham is mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) and has been known since Anglo Saxon times, when it consisted of several manors which William the Conqueror (1066-1087) presented to Roger Bigod. The town is of particular interest as it has a large castle and mere which was built between 1190 and 1210. The town is surrounded by lovely villages to explore and has two of the oldest working post boxes and one of Britain’s smallest houses, with the footprint measuring 6.1x2.2m! Today, the town offers a number of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and it is also home to Framlingham Summer Arts Festival.
