20th C model farm arranged around a courtyard, consisting of a range of white washed buildings with thatched half-hipped roofs. Most of the buildings are single storey although there is a two storey central block. This may have originally been built as a dairy farm but is now mostly used for horses (S1).

Recorded as part of the Farmsteads in the Suffolk Countryside Project. This is a purely desk-based study and no site visits were undertaken. These records are not intended to be a definitive assessment of these buildings. Dating reflects their presence at a point in time on historic maps and there is potential for earlier origins to buildings and farmsteads. This project highlights a potential need for a more in depth field study of farmstead to gather more specific age data.
