The Priory occupies a superb position on the edge of the popular village of Brandeston. The village is perhaps best known for Brandeston Hall Preparatory School and also benefits from a village pub. Nearby villages and towns include Earl Soham which provides day to day shopping facilities. Framlingham, with its historic castle and the riverside town of Woodbridge provide an excellent range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. There are excellent schools in both sectors in Earl Soham, Brandeston, Framlingham and Woodbridge. The county town of Ipswich, whilst located some 15 miles to the south, is easily accessible and offers regular inter city train services to London's Liverpool Street Station. The A12 is accessible at Wickham Market and the nearest rail link is at Campsea Ashe.
Grade II Listed of Special Architectural and Historic Interest, The Priory is predominantly constructed on a heavy timber frame with a rendered exterior under a pitched peg tiled roof.
The house was constructed during two periods, the first in 1586 and the second in 1648. Internally there are numerous features that include well proportioned rooms with an array of exposed beams and studwork, open fireplaces and many of the rooms have south facing windows overlooking the gardens.
The formal grounds of The Priory extend to 2.5 acres and consist of a series of garden rooms, each distinct from others, separated by mature yew and other evergreen hedges and trees. There are further paddocks, woodlands and a lime walk of 75 trees linking with footpaths down the Deben Valley. There is also a range of extensive outbuildings.
