Crossways Farm


Crossways Farm is more than a place to stay: it is a destination. As well as a luxury bed and breakfast reserved exclusively for you, it is a restorative place for all ages to relax in peaceful surroundings while enjoying the countryside and its wildlife, and of course, a place to have fun. Set in 2.5 acres of gardens, Crossways Farm is a Grade II listed farmhouse of late 14th Century origin, located in Hitcham, central Suffolk, only 15 minutes from the famous medieval wool town of Lavenham. For warmer months of the year, you will have a private area of the garden with hammocks, table and chairs to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Crossways Farm?

The 2 guest rooms, spacious bathroom and private breakfast & sitting room with log stove are self-contained and located at the end of the west wing of the house with their own private entrance and staircase. Whether you book one or both bedrooms, the accommodation is reserved exclusively for you, and with no other guests or occupied adjacent rooms, you can be assured of your privacy and peace and quiet.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Ipswich area?

Crossways Farm is close to several lovely historic sites, the best known of which is Lavenham's medieval wool village, just 7 miles away. If you want to go further, the coastline and the Norfolk Broads are just over an hour away where there are of course countless places to walk, cycle, hire boats and take boat trips on the Broads. 

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

You are welcomed with tea, coffee, homemade elderflower cordial and cake or biscuits for your pleasure in the kitchen or in the garden (if it's warm enough). In t e lounge there will be a selection of tea and coffee to help yourselves to, along with a kettle, toaster, fridge-freezer, microwave with a grill, crockery and cutlery. In your private breakfast/sitting room, a full English and a continental breakfast are available at your preferred time. There are good dining pubs in many surrounding villages: Bildeston, Chelsworth, Monks Eleigh and Buxhall, to name just a few, are all within 10 minutes’ drive.

We much enjoyed a peaceful few days here. A warm welcome, very comfortable beds and a delicious breakfast. Our grandchildren have enjoyed boating on the pond, playing with the goats and collecting hens' eggs. We thoroughly recommend this characterful place.

What a wonderful place - every little thing for a happy and comfortable stay has been thought of. We feel very privileged to have been among the first people to stay. Yalda is the consummate host and her animal friends were a delight for the kids (and the grownups) - we hope to be back soon!
