Exceptional Elizabethan country house set in the heart of the Deben Valley.
Grade II Listed of Special Architectural and Historic Interest, The Priory is predominantly constructed on a heavy timber frame with a rendered exterior under a pitched peg tiled roof.

The formal grounds of The Priory extend to 2.5 acres and consist of a series of garden rooms, each distinct from others, separated by mature yew and other evergreen hedges and trees. There are further paddocks, woodlands and a lime walk of 75 trees linking with footpaths down the Deben Valley. There is also a range of extensive outbuildings.
