The town is home to a good selection of independent shops and businesses including cafés, restaurants, hairdressers, antique shops, a travel agency and delicatessen. It is also home to the Crown Hotel, Barclays Bank and a Co-operative supermarket. Off the Market Hill are a number of other businesses providing day-to-day services including pubs, vets, a medical centre and schools. Sir Robert Hitcham's Primary School is highly regarded and Thomas Mills High School is considered one of the best state schools in the East of England. There is also Framlingham College, which is served by its prep school, Brandeston Hall, some 5 miles away.  In recent years Framlingham was voted the number one place to live in the country and is perhaps best known for its magnificent medieval castle, which is managed by English Heritage.

Framlingham is surrounded by delightful villages, many of which have popular public houses. There are lovely walks from Framlingham into the surrounding countryside, and amenities such as golf in nearby locations such as Cretingham (6 miles), Woodbridge (12 miles) and Aldeburgh (13 miles). The world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall is within easy reach (10½ miles). There is also bird watching at the RSPB centre at Minsmere (15 miles). Framlingham is only 12 miles from the coast as the crow flies with the popular destinations of Southwold, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Orford. The county town of Ipswich lies approximately 18 miles to the south-west and from here there are regular services to London's Liverpool Street Station, scheduled to take just over the hour. 

Description The premises comprise a recently refurbished Grade II Listed retail unit or office premises with accommodation arranged over two floors. Located in an extremely prominent location along Fore Street, and benefitting from a good amount of customer and staff car parking, the accommodation comprises a principal entrance area with stairs leading off to the first floor, and three partly sub-divided retailing/office areas. On the first floor there is a large open plan retail space/office, together with two further retail/office areas off, as well as a separate kitchen and male and female WCs. A schedule of the individual areas is listed below. Outside there is a designated area for car parking, which can accommodate between 8 and 10 vehicles. The premises have recently been refurbished, and although lend themselves to being occupied by one party, could easily be sub-divided if required.

Prospective purchasers should note that there is a 'flying leasehold' with part of the first floor accommodation 'flying over' a neighbouring occupier. There is also a service charge for the upkeep and maintenance of the communal car park and turning area. The vendors would also consider letting the whole premises for a rent of £18,000 per annum exclusive.
