There are primary schools in the neighbouring villages of Bedfield and Earl Soham, with the latter also having a well-reputed local pub and award winning butcher/delicatessen.

This is a property which combines an attractive and peaceful location with access to the wider world.
The Property The Royal Oak is a well timbered period houses listed as Grade II which indicates a property of architectural or historical importance. As the name suggests it was once a public house until 1970 and some elements of that time remain including the half serving door and small window in one room. Whilst the original quality can be seen, and there have been various improvements over time, it is fair to say the house is now in need of an overall scheme of updating and general repair. This property really provides a blank canvas for an enthusiastic new owner to create their dream home in a delightful setting.
