    How to get there
    Airport: Norwich: 37.3 mi
    Railway: Beccles or Lowestoft: 6.2 mi
    Ferry: Felixstowe: 37.3 mi
    From London Follow the A12 North , Wrentham sits astride the A12 so while easy to find you must be prepared for the fact that 'A' designation does not mean much in sleepy Suffolk , by the time it gets to us its been a single carriageway road for over 40miles. From the Midlands , probably best to follow the A14 East to Ipswich then turn north on the A12. Guests from the North or Northeast can travel down the A1 or M1 and pickup the A14 and follow as above or indeed cut across country on the A17 east to Kings Lynn then take the A47 east to Norwich where they can find the A146 to Lowestoft , at Beccles they can then find the B1127 to Southwold and Wrentham is on this road about 3miles from Southwold.

Perfect holiday from start to finish. Hayley, the owner personally greeted us at the Old Reading Rooms with a warm welcome and the kettle on! I couldn't fault her hospitality as she was there at hand if we needed her. I spent the week with my husband, daughter, sister and dog and the ORR was perfect in terms of space... more

A very well appointed and refurbished period holiday property ideally located for exploring the local areas of Norfolk and Suffolk including the nearby beaches, walks and of course the Broads.

The place was lovely,couldn't fault it-the only problem was it was very near the main road and not very good for dogs. The owner was very obliging and helpful,couldn't have asked for more!!! more

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay and apologies that the small garden is detached at the rear of the property meaning that dog owners have to walk their dogs in the open countryside, many seem to find this satisfactory but indeed some do not, depends on the type and age of dog and the enthusiasm of the dog walker i guess. more
