Property, setting and location:
Commenced in 1520, Leaf House is a traditional Suffolk Hall House, thatched, timber framed and Grade II listed.  Its tranquil location on the edge of a rural village is perfect for those seeking peace, quiet and relaxation.  Yet it is only 5 miles from the major arterial route of the A14 and only 4 miles from the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds with its multitude of attractions, history and excellent range of pubs and restaurants.

Newmarket, Cambridge, the East Coast and Norwich are all within an hour’s drive. London is less than 2 hours away.  Many historic houses, beautiful gardens and wonderful nature reserves await you.

Guest rooms, facilities and the garden: Two beautiful and individually decorated bedrooms provide sumptuous comfort and pampering.  Both ‘The Garden Room’ (ensuite shower room) and ‘Greengages’ (adjacent private bath room) have hand-made 6 foot wide beds (180 cm), crisply laundered pure white cotton bed linen (changed daily for a touch of luxury), Molton Brown toiletries, thick towels and many other thoughtful touches.

The warm and cosy snug or the elegantly relaxed sitting room are available for guests.

Enjoy afternoon tea, or a pre-dinner drink in our pretty English country garden - also, you are welcome to make use of the tennis court.  No TV ensures the predominant sound is birdsong!
