DESCRIPTION Wood Hall, (previously known as Waldingfield Hall) is a Grade II Listed house that has occupied this site since at least the 15th Century. Evidence of its Elizabethan origins is still evident today and in particular within the 2 bedroom cottage. It is clear from the history of this house, standing prominently at the heart of this village and with its elegant façade that it is instantly recognisable and admired by many. The house has exceptional character throughout with high ceilings, cornicing, large sash windows and original shutters. There is considerable versatility within the main house which includes on the second floor a self-contained apartment if required. The grounds are exceptional, the formal gardens of particular note which in turn open onto a large meadow all abutting fields to the rear. The guest cottage offers further flexibility as it could easily be incorporated back into the main house or equally run as a successful holiday let (as has previously been the case) with a particularly impressive sitting/dining room and 2 double bedrooms. There is the scope to further increase the accommodation by converting further parts of the roof space both above the cottage and main house thereby creating further bedrooms if required (subject to any necessary consents). There are a range of outbuildings and extensive parking.

LOCATION Little Waldingfield is a charming small village, north of the Essex/Suffolk border bounded by open countryside to provide some splendid country walks. The village has a strong sense of community and is closely linked to nearby Lavenham made famous for its medieval homes. Within Lavenham is a primary school, Doctor's surgery, supermarkets, various shops and restaurants all less than 10 minutes' drive from Little Waldingfield. The nearby market town of Sudbury is about 5 miles and provides a more comprehensive range of amenities, schooling for all ages and a commuter rail link to London Liverpool Station. Colchester North Station with its quick journey time to London is about a 20 minute drive away. The Cathedral town of Bury St. Edmunds is approximately 15 miles north and provides access to the A14 trunk road with the midlands and coast beyond. There is public and private schooling nearby and Stanstead airport approximately a 45 minute drive away.

In all about 1.42 acres (sts).
