Christmas spent with extended family was made special in this beautiful home.

Fantastic stay at Abbey Farm, nr Diss

By Helen R on 05-Aug-2023

Our stay at Abbey Farm was just amazing! I was over with a group of Italian students to learn more about English life and culture, and their experience in this beautiful, historical house was perfect. The house is spacious with quirky attic rooms, and a spectacular garden. It''s beautifully furnished with fireplaces, vases of flowers, pictures, books etc, so it really feels like a home. There was everything we needed, including a chess table and table football, so the kids had a lot of fun. We were welcomed by Angela, who left us lots of basics, including a lovely welcome food and drinks gift. Basically, you couldn''t wish for more. Thank you!

Fantastic property grade A standard

By Sarah G. on 24-Sep-2019

Abbey Farm is a fantastic property and our party of 9 thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is equipped with everything you need, especially the kitchen. Every room is really well furnished and very comfortable. The small touches like the welcome pack and toiletries in each bathroom make it a higher standard than other similar houses we've stayed in. The gardens are delightful with several areas to sit and relax, BBQ and dine outside with plenty of room for children to run around around and play. Of the 9 properties our party have stayed at in the last few years this is by far the nicest and most comfortable and we are definitely going to return next year for our annual family weekend away. Many many thanks for letting us enjoy this fantastic house.
