We really are off the beaten track. Cratfield is deep in the Suffolk countryside so once you have left the main roads there is still a way to go…..

For satnavs use the full address as above – if you use only the post code you may end up at our neighbours house in Tongs Lane – if you end up in Tongs Lane you can get to the Long House by using our back (farm) driveway – Tongs Lane Farm.

Leave Halesworth on the B1123 towards Metfield/ Harleston.
After about 3-4 miles turn left opposite Linstead church – you will go up a short steep hill ignore the turning to your right at the top of the hill.
