Location The property stands in its own plot on Brook Lane and enjoys views to the rear over its own garden and to the front over the lane onto a small meadow. The property is within walking distance of the thriving town centre which 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 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 preparatory school, Brandeston Hall, some 5 miles away.
Framlingham has previously been voted the number one place to live in the country and is perhaps best known for its magnificent castle which is managed by English Heritage. There are lovely walks from Framlingham into the surrounding countryside, and amenities such as golf in the nearby locations of 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.
