Directions from A14
Leave the A14 at Bury St Edmunds, taking the A143 (signposted Diss, Gt Yarmouth). Follow this road for approx 25 to 30 miles. At Harleston, go straight over a roundabout ( not turning left into Harleston). A short distance beyond this roundabout, turn off down a small road on the right; (this is easily missed - look out for a white sign to Fressingfield). Turn right again, and then follow this road through Weybread and into Fressingfield. Take the first left turn in Fressingfield (beside the stream). This road will take you to Silverleys Green. Follow the road round to the left past a phone box, then take the next right turn into Spong Lane. Turn right at the other end of the lane. You can now see Holly Tree Barns across the field. Holly Tree Farm is one of the first places on the right hand side as you enter Cratfield. It is a pink thatched house approached by a concrete drive lined with post and rail fencing. Holly Tree Barns are just to the rear of the farm house.
Directions from A12
The A12 merges with the A14 as it travels around Ipswich; you need to turn off this road 3 miles after the Orwell Bridge (signposted A12 Lowestoft), or you will find yourself in Felixstowe.
Turn off the A12 onto the B1116, and follow this road through Framlingham to Dennington. Cross the A1120 and continue on the B1116 for about 4 miles until you come to a sharp bend with ‘Les Cotton Contractors' straight ahead of you. Turn right here (signposted to Laxfield).
You come into Laxfield with the primary school on your left. Just past the school turn right at the war memorial and go down the village street to the end. There is a shop and the church on your left. The road bends round to the right but turn off left beside the Royal Oak. Pass a row of council houses on your right. There are now two left turns close together opposite Corner Farm. Take the second of these signposted to Cratfield. Follow this road for about two miles until the next junction and turn left. Take the next right turn at Church Farm. Turn left into Church Road. Go past the Church and at the T Junction turn left on to Bell Green. Continue through the village (past The Poacher) and we are one of the last places on the left hand side. Holly Tree Farm is a pink thatched house approached by a concrete drive lined with post and rail fencing. Holly Tree Barns are just to the rear of the farm house.
