14 years ago we caught sight of a boarded up Victorian school perched on the edge of one of the prettiest village greens in East Anglia. We converted it into a wonderful home in 2001 but 10 years later decided it was time to share this lovely peaceful building with others so transformed the grounds and building into farm shop, bar, restaurant and accommodation.

 Inspired when visiting a village restaurant many miles away in South Africa we have installed a wood fired pizza oven which forms the core of our delicious and fresh menu. Come and try one of these fantastic wood fired pizzas which we were very proud to have featured in both The Guardian's Top 100 Boutique Hotels under £100 a night and Delicious magazine.

 We aspire to provide a facility for those living in Shouldham and its environs as well as attracting new visitors to our lovely village. We provide a tranquil home from home as well as a high standard of quality meals, produce and service. Whether you want to come in for a cappuccino and a tea cake or a candlelit meal for that special occasion we hope that you will come and see us.

The farm shop stocks locally made chutneys,  jams and marmalades as well as local free range eggs, rare breeds bacon and sausages plus ales and ciders from local brewers. Convenience products are stocked too,

The gallery adjacent to the farm shop represents local artists as well as stocking prints, costume jewellery, glass, ceramics, small furniture and much more. We welcome artists and craftspeople to contact us with their pictures and wares.
