Monks Eleigh is a pretty Suffolk village, bisected by the river Brett and surrounded by undulating countryside.

The market town of Sudbury, 8 miles, provides a comprehensive range of amenities with a commuter rail service to London Liverpool Street, whilst the smaller town of Hadleigh stands about 4 miles to the East.
