A farm in Snape, near Aldeburgh, with a farmhouse, two holiday lets, commercial and agricultural buildings and a touring caravan site, is on the market at a guide price of £1.6 million. 

Croft Farm is set in a standalone position in the picturesque parish of Snape, just one and a half miles from Snape Maltings. 

Selling agent Clarke & Simpson said: “Croft Farm offers an exciting business opportunity in a particularly special part of east Suffolk.” 

The farmhouse is a period building of brick and timber construction under a slate roof. 

On the ground floor, a south-facing veranda has doors to the sitting room and dining room, as well as the front door, which opens onto the hallway.

Croft Farm has about 19.5 acres of land in total, including a meadow which would be ideal for horses. Part of the land is let to a farmer for arable use. 

The farm is less than a mile from the centre of the village of Snape, which is home to two pubs – The Golden Key and The Crown. 

Snape Maltings, with its concert hall, retail complex and Plough & Sail Inn, is within one and a half miles of the farm. 

There are some scenic walks in the area, along the river to Aldeburgh and Iken, as well as in the nearby forest. 

Aldeburgh is just five miles away and has a number of shops and restaurants. Saxmundham, which is three miles away, has shops, supermarkets and a railway station.
