Ringshall has a village hall and farm shop and in nearby Great Bricett there is The Red Lion public house which has won many awards for its restaurant serving vegetarian food.

A wider range of amenities are available at nearby Stowmarket. There are mainline railway stations in both Stowmarket and Ipswich with journey times of 80 and 65 minutes respectively to London Liverpool Street. The A14 at Needham Market connects with the A12 at Ipswich and provides access to Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and in turn to the country's motorway network. These towns have an extensive range of commercial and recreational facilities as has Ipswich and its environs, which also has a wide range of day and boarding schools.


Ringshall Hall Farm is an impressively restored Grade II* Listed barn conversion which enjoys southerly views over undulating countryside. The property is understood to have been a manorial court hall in 1570 and then converted into a barn and then renovated into a substantial house in 1993 by the current owners. The property is constructed from an oak timber frame, much of which is exposed with outstanding beams, roof trusses and studwork throughout. The reception hall leads down to the magnificent vaulted drawing room with York stone floors, large mullion windows, galleried landings and a wood burner. Beyond this is a further reception room with an attractive fireplace and pamment floors. The kitchen/breakfast room has a double butlers sink and pine base units with marble tops and island and slate flooring. There is a breakfast area and this opens through to the snug sitting room to one side. The first floor is reached by two staircases and there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms on this floor. The second floor is reached by two further staircases, including a spiral stair off the large central landing and each lead to bedrooms located at the gable ends of the house. The setting is delightful with the gardens around the house with a terrace to the rear, a woodland area and pond. The main drive leads past a belt of woodland and culminates in a parking area to the front of the house with a further spur off to one side for further parking to the rear. Two solid timber gates offer a further access via a right of way over the neighbours drive leading back to the road and through electric gates. There is a range of traditional outbuildings including a detached stable building which has 2 stables, tack room and feed store. To the rear of the house is a garage and workshop and 6 open bays with a former hen house to the far end. On the other side of the main drive is a field shelter and store building which fronts a large meadow with further land which is currently under cultivation. About 10.31 acres
