Manor Farm is a Grade II* listed former hunting lodge close to Bury St Edmonds in Suffolk. The property subsequently became a manor house, and now presents timber-framed and plastered elevations with crow stepped gables under a plaintiled roof, making an attractive family house. Period details include exposed moulded timbers, lintelled open fireplaces, original ships timbers and panelling with fluted pilasters.

Additions to the original property were commissioned in the 17th, 19th and 20th centuries, extending and renovating the space. Accommodation now comprises three reception rooms, six/seven bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms.
