Crown House, originally a pub, dates back to the late 1500s. It is largely timber framed but made brick fronted in Georgian times. For a long time it was 3 labourers cottages, owned by the Glemham House Estate, but towards the end of the last century was remodelled as one dwelling. The house is nestled in the centre of the village and has an attractive garden with an old Quince tree, a huge Walnut, a pear tree and some apple trees.
There are tea and coffee (cafetière) making facilities in the room.

In 2015 I swapped living in London to run a unique, boutique style B&B near the Suffolk Coast. I have been a visitor here for 20 years. I have 3 Boston Terriers, with whom I love to walk and explore the surrounding countryside.
