Accommodation and prices
Old Hall Farm is a small family friendly complex of three self catering holiday cottages near the village of Walpole, Suffolk. The three cottages sleep between four and six people and have been tastefully converted from original farm buildings. Old Corn Mill, for example, has vaulted ceilings with wooden beams framing a large open plan living area. Prices at Old Hall Farm appear reasonable to us at Parent Friendly Stays, with a week in one of the six bed cottages at the height of the summer costing £1260. A week at the same time in the Old Dairy, which sleeps four (3+1 in two bedrooms with the plus one on a Z-bed) costs £940 but you could have the same property out of season for as little as £200-£300.
Child friendly features
Facilities to keep your children entertained at Old Hall Farm are excellent. There’s an indoor heated swimming pool (open Easter – end of Sept), in which swimming lessons can be arranged on request. There’s also a large indoor games room with table tennis, pool and giant draughts and – fairly uniquely amongst the properties listed on Parent Friendly Stays – an indoor AstroTurf pitch for football, hockey or tennis. Perfect for letting off steam whatever the English weather throws at your holiday! The complex is set within 80 acres of farmland and so there’s plenty of safe outdoor space to explore with the children, including an organised nature trail and plenty of other public footpaths. Kids will also doubtless enjoy saying hello to the resident friendly pony. Bear in mind, though, that family pets are not allowed on site.
Parent friendly features
Parents will be pleased to know there’s a babysitting service available if needed, giving you the opportunity to explore some of the lovely pubs and restaurants in the area (though there are none within walking distance). As a nice touch, all cottage rentals come with a homemade cake on arrival and you can obtain fresh local milk daily from the farm itself. A mobile beautician and/or freshly prepared homemade meals can also be arranged as extras if you want to make your family holiday even more relaxing.
All in all, Old Hall Farm strikes us as a welcoming, attractive and well-equipped parent friendly holiday venue ideally placed for exploring the Suffolk and Norfolk countryside with your family.
“Old Hall is set in 80 acres of grazing meadows in the beautiful Blyth Valley and has been the Winter family home for more than three generations.
A short walk from the pretty village of Walpole, we are just two miles outside the thriving market town of Halesworth, which provides an ideal base for exploring Suffolk and the world-renowned Heritage Coast, encompassing Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh. Just eight miles from the Norfolk border, we are also just a short journey from Beccles and the gateway to the Broads.
Whatever you choose to do when you get here, we really look forward to our holiday cottages and welcoming you in true warm, friendly Suffolk style!”
