Butley Farmhouse Hero

Butley Farmhouse East of England

A Georgian gem in a sublime setting

In a beautiful corner of England sits Butley Farmhouse, a perfect Georgian gem. Here, in this generously proportioned Suffolk farmhouse, you can bring together a crowd while still finding space for moments of solitude. Step into your own Jane Austen novel, with book-lined walls, roaring log fires and elegant mahogany furniture. Choose to linger in any of the three exquisitely furnished sitting rooms, conjure up feasts in the fabulous kitchen, complete with Aga and American-style fridge, and set places for up to 24 in the spacious dining room. Outside, head for the tennis court, play a game of croquet or enjoy drinks on the terrace overlooking the manicured lawns. Explore the local area and things may seem familiar; The Dig starring Ralph Fiennes was filmed nearby as were many of the country scenes in the gentle TV comedy series, The Detectorists. Just slightly further afield is Orford, famous for the Pump House Bakery, Pinney’s Smokery and Orford Ness Nature Reserve. Butley Farmhouse has room to sleep up to 24 guests in 12 luxurious bedrooms, with details that include four-poster beds, spacious bathrooms and original fireplaces. It offers a complete escape in one of the most peaceful and natural corners of England.

Guest Reviews

We rented Butley Farmhouse for a joint 50th birthday weekend. We had 24 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house is very well equipped and the rooms are all lovely - beautifully decorated and with extremely comfortable beds. Despite its size, the whole house is warm! An unforgettable weekend which we would love to repeat in years to come.
