in the winter. Wake up to the delicious smell of freshly baked bread and for the perfect start to the day enjoy a sumptuous full English breakfast made from our own and local produce. There is a full choice of homemade muesli and granola, fresh juice and cereal, homemade yoghurt, fruit compote, bread, jams marmalade and our own honey. In addition, there is

a range of cooked options, including vegetarian which are individually prepared to order

Please let me know of any food allergies/intolerances you may have so that I am well prepared.

Our chickens and bees keep us supplied with delicious eggs and honey and the cutting garden with fresh flowers.

Bear right at the church and follow the lane which does a sharp left hand turn towards the railway (closed to traffic). Cattishall Farmhouse is the only house on the right before reaching the railway.

Access is via a gravel drive next to a flint wall.

The East Anglia Transport Museum, Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum and Leiston Long Shop Museum exhibit machines and contraptions of the past, while the Museum of East Anglian Life tells of Suffolk’s agricultural history.
