    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.

I would be very surprised if anyone could find fault with this lovely property. The kitchen is extremely well equipped - great quality crockery, glasses etc.We had taken out own tea and coffee - which we used, but these items where there. Comfortable hide sofas and just a very genial area to spend time with a glass of wine! Shame... more

Used the Old Reading Rooms (ORR) for a weekend as a base for our daughter's wedding at Wood Farm Barn, Benacre. The ORR was ideal for this purpose and only about one mile from the wedding venue. The property itself was very thoughtfully and tastefully renovated and provided enough space to prepare for the event comfortably. After the event we... more

From the outset we were welcomed in by the unbelieveably friendly owner to the holiday home that was to be our base during our stay in Wrentham for my sister's wedding. Despite not having it for a holiday as such, the house was warm, fully equipped with everything we needed and more (wine already in the fridge). The whole place... more
