Francis Farm Cottages
Self Catering Cottages in the Heart of Suffolk
Taking the name of and built on land once owned by French Benedictine Monks, as far back as 1198, these sympathetically restored farm buildings offer accommodation with a great deal of character. Set amidst rolling countryside, it is a working farm producing cereals and free-range eggs.
Upper Somerton is a picturesque village with excellent walks, situated just 20 minutes drive from Sudbury and Bury St. Edmunds. It is close to the famous and historic towns of Long Melford, Lavenham and Clare; also just 45 minutes from horse racing at Newmarket or Thetford Forest and its Centre Parc. Cambridge is within an hour's drive and the nearest beach at Southwold only one and a half hours (62 miles). We also have Dedham Vale, Constable Country; Sutton Hoo, Peterborough and Ely, all within easy reach from our Cottages.
Our nearest shops for groceries and a small Post Office are 5 miles and we have several Pubs close by.
