  • Stay next to Southwold Maize Maze in stunning new Hideaway

    6 July, 2018

    New to our portfolio for summer 2018 is The Old Hall Farm House, a fabulous spacious holiday home for up to 10 guests, next door to the Southwold Maize Maze on the outskirts of this stunning Suffolk seaside town. 

    The Southwold Maize Maze is a fantastic family attraction just under two miles from Southwold and features a giant puzzle of pathways within 8 acres of maize. But the fun doesn't stop there - children can enjoy a whole range of other activities including Go-karts, jumping pillows, zip wires, sand pits, play equipment and face painting - and there is something for kids of all ages. Grown-ups and children alike can stop for refreshments at the superb cafe which offers home made lunches, snacks and cakes and gourmet coffees.

    This year the team at Heritage Hideaways has been excited to work with the owners of the Maize Maze on the launch of their self catering holiday home located on the farm next to the Maize Maze.

    The house, which has been beautifully refurbished, features wonderful family-friendly accommodation for up to 10 guests. As the farm house is within a few minutes' walk of the maze,  guests at the farm will benefit from a free pass to the Southwold Maize Maze with compliments of the owners. Please note the park opens from 18 July until 9 September and for October Half Term.

    With six bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms and cloakroom, lots of living space and a private garden and parking, Old Hall Farm House is the perfect Hideaway for a large family or group of friends. It's also a 5 minute drive to Southwold's sandy beach, vibrant high street and iconic lighthouse and pier.

    The house is available for short breaks and longer holidays throughout the year. One well behaved dog is welcome.

    Please give us a call on 01502 322405 if you would like to find out more about this a-Maizing house! More information and photos of the house can also be found here where you can also book online.
