Mollett’s Farm is a family-run haven of peace and tranquillity near Suffolk’s Heritage Coast. With new custom-designed holiday studios and cottages, it makes the perfect Suffolk escape.
Made up of converted agricultural buildings belonging to an idyllic countryside farmhouse near Saxmundham, Mollett’s Farm is located between the villages of Farnham and Benhall in Suffolk, and owned by husband and wife team Richard and Sasha Ayres.
Dating back to the 17th century and situated alongside an area of outstanding natural beauty, Mollett’s has 39 acres of land, the majority of which is arable and home to a wide range of wildlife.
Richard said: “We have always known that our fantastic location makes Mollett’s an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the Suffolk Heritage Coast and this has always been something we wanted to be able to share with others. The new units are ideal for a wide range of guests, from individuals and couples, to whole families, and they are all finished to a really high standard with everything you would need for an enjoyable stay.”
Its studios are universal access, offering accessibility for those that need it and all our accommodation is family and pet friendly. A warm welcome awaits you in either a two-storey cottage (sleeping two to six) or ground-floor studio (sleeping two) individually designed and furnished with everything you need to settle in and enjoy your visit. Outside, a patio and/or garden provides a great place to relax.
You can snuggle in beautiful luxurious Egyptian cotton bed linen and soft towels, and all the accommodation is equipped with flatscreen TVs and Blu-ray players, WiFi, hair-driers and kitchens as well as with fan ovens, hobs, microwaves, fridges, dishwashers, kettles and toasters. For your convenience there is also a Laundry Room on site and extra storage for bikes and trailers.
Set in open farmland, Mollett’s is criss-crossed by footpaths which are ready to help you to explore ancient woodlands or walk to the charming farm shop and restaurant nearby. The main A12 coast road makes it easy to head north towards Lowestoft, Southwold and Aldeburgh or south to Woodbridge, Ipswich and London, if you want to explore further afield.
