About the area Crowfield is a delightful Suffolk village situated approximately 8 miles North of Ipswich, which is the County town of Suffolk. In the heart of the village is the village hall, recreational ground and church and the nearby villages of Coddenham and Stonham both have a village store.

Stonham Primary School is approximately 1.7 miles distant and Debenham High School is approximately 3.8 miles, both Ofsted outstanding. Nearby railway stations can be found at Needham Market, approximately 4 miles, Stowmarket 6.2 miles and Ipswich 8.3 miles, perfect for an easy commute. Within the parish of Crowfield are some fantastic walks through the surrounding countryside.

There is easy access to the A140 to Norwich to the North and to the A14 and Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge to the South. The thriving town of Ipswich set on the estuary of the River Orwell has undergone an extensive gentrification programme in recent years, mainly around the waterfront and has become a popular "commutable" town to London.


 

Directions From the A14 leave at junction 51, signposted A140 Norwich and keep in the right hand lane taking the first turning to the right across the dual carriageway onto B1078 Needham Road. Continue along this country road over the small hump back bridge into Coddenham, pass the church on the right and bear left as the road forks by the village store, onto School Road. Follow this country lane for approximately two miles into the village of Crowfield, onto Stone Street where the entrance to the property can be found on the left hand side, marked by a for sale board.


 

Vendor statement "Crowfield is a warm and friendly community. There is an active village committee that arranges typical rural events such as the annual fete, flower show, quiz evenings and other special gatherings.

We have been in Lothlorien for more than 30 years bringing up our family in a happy and healthy environment. Whether it is the height of summer with the doors and windows open letting the sunlight and birdsong in, or the depth of winter with roaring fires and candlelight keeping the darkness out, Lothlorien is more than just a house, it is a home and we shall miss it and the village dearly."
