There is also Framlingham College, which is served by its prep school, Brandeston Hall, some 5 miles away.

The town of Diss is 15 miles from the property and offers Tesco, Morrisons and Aldi supermarkets, as well as a range of smaller shops and services, and a railway station offering direct services to London's Liverpool Street station. The county town of Ipswich is approximately 21 miles from the property and the Heritage Coast, with all it has to offer, is just 16 miles away.  

Description As the name will suggest, 4 Council Houses is a former local authority semi-detached property which is believed to date from the 1940/50s. As with many houses of the era, it offers spacious accommodation on an excellent sized plot of approximately 0.12 acres. Internally, there is a sitting room, a dining/family room, kitchen, downstairs bathroom and cloakroom. On the first floor are three bedrooms. The house has been modernised with UPVC windows throughout and a relatively new kitchen. The house is of predominantly brick construction under a tiled roof with a flat roof extension to the rear. Externally there are pretty, private front and rear gardens and there is off-road parking.
