About the Area Ashbocking is a popular village offering amenities including church, garden nursery, motor vehicle repair services, gift shop & café at 'The Crockery Barn' and 'Swiss Farm' butchers. The larger village of Witnesham is approximately two miles distant offering a primary school, church and public house as well as the Fynn Valley Golf Course. Otley is approximately one mile away with post office, award winning general stores, primary school, doctor's surgery and 'The White Hart' public house.

The thriving town of Ipswich is set on the estuary of the River Orwell and has undergone an extensive gentrification programme in recent years, mainly around the waterfront and has become a popular "commutable" town to London. Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk and offers a wide variety of shopping, commercial and leisure facilities including a full range of sports clubs and societies and championship football, restaurants and high street stores. There is an excellent choice of schooling within both the state and private sectors.

Excellent sailing and golfing facilities are both available nearby or on the popular Suffolk Heritage Coast. Ipswich provides good access to various road networks via the A12 to the South with links to London and the M25 and via the A14 to The Midlands and M11. The railway station provides mainline railway links to London's Liverpool Street with an approximate journey time of sixty-five minutes. 

Directions Proceed out of Ipswich along the B1077 through the villages of Westerfield and Witnesham. Continue over the Ashbocking crossroads towards Debenham where after approximately three quarters of a mile the property will be found on the right hand side.
