Crossways Farm is more than a place to stay: it is a destination. As well as a luxury bed and breakfast reserved exclusively for you, it is a restorative place for all ages to be pampered and relax in peaceful surroundings while enjoying the countryside and its wildlife, and of course a place to have fun.
The total price per night given is for full occupancy (5 people). For fewer (or more) guests or families/children please contact me for options and prices.
Please note you are not booking the entire property, although the guest section is self-contained; this was the only way to list more than 1 room. See below for full details.
Set in 2.5 acres of gardens, Crossways Farm is a Grade II listed building of late 14th Century origin, located in Hitcham, central Suffolk. The 2 guest rooms, spacious bathroom and private breakfast & sitting room with log stove are self-contained and located at the end of the west wing of the house with their own private entrance and staircase. Whether you book one or both bedrooms, the accommodation is reserved exclusively for you, and with no other guests or occupied adjacent rooms you can be assured of your privacy and peace and quiet. For warmer months of the year you will have a private area of the garden with hammocks, table and chairs to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
On arrival you will be greeted by tea, coffee, homemade elderflower cordial and cake or biscuits, to enjoy by the fire or in the garden (when it’s warm enough!).
A full English and continental breakfast is served in your private breakfast/sitting room at a time of your choosing between 7am and 11am, and includes freshly-squeezed orange juice and local apple juice, a selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, bread from an award-winning local bakery, homemade jam and local honey. Wherever possible, food is homemade, home grown or locally sourced. All sausages and bacon are locally sourced and free range, and eggs are kindly provided by my beautiful chickens who you will meet enjoying themselves in the garden – you can even choose what colour eggs you want!
You will have a private sitting and breakfast room looking onto the garden with sofa, rocking chair and bean chair, log-burning stove, fridge with freezer compartment and ice tray, mini-bar (soft drinks and snacks), microwave with grill, kettle and toaster, along with a wide selection of tea and coffee, including a cafetiere and seasonal fresh garden herbs for tea. Crockery and cutlery are also provided. There is a TV with Freeview and DVD player, and a digital/FM radio with CD player and Bluetooth capability so that you can bring your own music. Books, magazines, DVDs, games and maps are available in the bookcase just outside the door. Breakfast is served here in the morning at a time of your choosing between 7am and 11am.
Both bedrooms boast locally handmade furniture and furnishings; luxury mattresses handmade in the UK; hypoallergenic pillows and duvets with silky Egyptian cotton bed linen; alarm clocks; TV with Freeview and DVD player; and tea and coffee-making facilities. The curtains have black-out lining to help you have a lie in, and an electric blanket and hot water bottles are provided for you to get extra cosy in winter.
A newly renovated spacious bathroom with freestanding bath, Egyptian cotton towels, indulgent toiletries (including hair conditioner and foam bath) and other basic toiletries you might have forgotten, shaver socket, hair dryer, first aid kit and hot water bottles.
