Nut Tree Farm set on the edge of the village of Metfield in the Waveney Valley on the Suffolk/Norfolk border is very much a lifestyle property. This Grade II listed farmhouse has a lovely outlook and offers flexible living accommodation with six to seven bedrooms.

Valley Farmhouse, Westhall

Guide price: £1,295,000

Agent: ECR Properties 01449 711727

Another property offering an exciting lifestyle choice is Valley Farmhouse at Westhall, not far from the Suffolk Heritage Coast, which provides an opportunity to take on a bed and breakfast and glamping business with an established income. Set in around four acres it also offers equestrian facilities and a small manège. There are also several business and storage units currently let out.

The current owners use the main farmhouse for the bed and breakfast business. The one-bedroom Falconry Mews in the courtyard to the rear of the farmhouse offers excellent accommodation with adjacent office. A traditional barn currently provides stabling but has the potential for other uses subject to planning. The arrangement of the bed and breakfast rooms allows a great deal of flexibility should a buyer wish to increase the private accommodation and it is well laid out should they wish to return it to a family farmhouse.
