Holly Farm is a well-known PYO soft fruit farm, with strawberries and raspberries and a wide variety of other fruit available in season. We have attractive free range Dutch bantams.
The farm is located on the edge of Stutton village which has a lovely church, a community run shop open every day and supplying groceries, newspapers, stamps and quite a lot else. There is also a hairdressers and a veterinary practice in the village.
In one direction from Stutton is Holbrook (about 2 miles) with a good sized Co-op, PostOffice, and newsagents, while in the other direction in Tattingstone Rookery Farm Shop sells an excellent range of local produce and goods.
The Lookout is well placed for exploring this lovely part of East Anglia, enjoying numerous local activities, or simply having a restful break. The Rivers Orwell and Stour make it an ideal area for walking and birdwatching, (being tidal the rivers attract large numbers of waders and estuary birds.) The coast is nearby, as is Constable Country, Lavenham and Long Melford, and England’s smallest town, Manningtree on the River Stour.
Jimmy’s Farm is in the neighbouring village, and Woodbridge and Sutton Hoo are a short drive over the Orwell Bridge. Alton Water is within a mile of The Lookout and has hire facilities for sailing, wind surfing and bicycling, and is lovely for walking, or picnicking and watching the activities on the water!
