Woolpit is a prosperous and thriving village noted for its period architecture and impressive skyline dominated by the magnificent parish church of St Mary. The village is famous for its rich history including settlements recorded in the Domesday book, fascinating interpretations of the origin of Woolpit’s name, and notable for the 12th-century legend of the green children of Woolpit. Village life is predominantly centred around the central triangle with attractive bespoke pergola and offers a comprehensive range of facilities including post office, village stores, primary school, doctor’s surgery and public houses. The village is conveniently located off the A14 trunk road midway between the popular Cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds and the market town of Stowmarket, the latter providing a commuter rail link to London’s Liverpool Street station.
Our Woolpit team boasts a wealth of combined agency experience in the region offering one of the most comprehensive sales and lettings services in the area. ‘Woolpit is a fabulous area to live, not only because of its rich history and thriving community but also because of the surrounding villages. The countryside is particularly popular with dog walkers and ramblers alike with many bridle ways and quiet country lanes weaving through pretty villages filled with charming, period properties. Being so close to Stowmarket train station and the A14 we appeal to commuters as well as locals looking for an active country lifestyle without feeling detached from the bright lights of the city. If you’re looking for welcoming communities in picturesque villages we might well offer just what you’re looking for.’
