The Primary School is highly rated, Farlingaye is the High School which is located in Woodbridge which is an excellent town for local shops boutiques, restaurants, cafes and public houses, Woodbridge also has a thriving waterfront, and it also has rail connections to Ipswich through to London Liverpool Street.

SELLERS INSIGHT The Gables is set in the centre of one of the most prestigious villages in Suffolk, three miles from Woodbridge. We have enjoyed walking the many footpaths and exploring the local countryside over the years. We believe that The Gables dates from the 16th century and is thought to be one of the four original manor houses in the village. The view from both floors at the front of the property is of the beautiful church and village green. The village has many activities and clubs, the pub serves wonderful food and also found is a convenient post office, excellent primary school and tennis courts. Run as a business site for centuries, the property is now ready for new owners to take it into the future; there are endless possibilities and potential as the house and shop stand in their own extensive grounds. It would make a fabulous boutique hotel, wedding venue, restaurant, market garden – whatever the new owners decide. The setting is superb; so close to the heritage coast and we shall be sad to move from such a prominent location.
