Vendors Statement "Stepping into The Ancient House the first very pleasing impression is the sense of stillness and quiet, an oasis in the heart of the town and yet so much in the country too. We love being able to walk to the farm, the river and the lake, all within a few minutes, and that the shops provide all that one needs without having to get into the car. The Ancient House is a warm, welcoming, spacious family home with flexible accommodation for both family and friends. The quaint, walled garden is easily managed – it feels private and is a meeting point for lots of little birds. We enjoy summer days with the patio doors opened out into the garden and winter evenings in front of the open fire. For us and for our three children The Ancient House has been, above all, a family home. We feel part of a community here and have made good friendships with our neighbours. Needham Market remains a kind and friendly place, where people are inclined to greet you in the streets. Both a home and a town with a heart."
