The work undertaken to restore the Old Granary was upported by the East of England Development Agency
The Old Granary dates back to 1891, and was the granary to Hall Farm, providing animal feeds as well as being the place where the farm’s harvest of wheat, barley and oats were placed into sacks and transported to the local Corn Exchange of Bury St Edmunds to be sold.
Hall Farm, Nowton, Bury St Edmunds is a largely arable farm. The farm has been in family hands for four generations and whilst the large grade II moted farm house was sold off in the 1980's the farm continues to produce wheat, barley, rape seed, and sugar beet commercially. The farm also has a small number of cattle and sheep as well as offering stabling for a number of horses. During your stay at the Old Granary you will be welcome to wander across the acres of farmland as well as the extensive network of well-trodden public footpaths.
In 2002/2003 following many years of disuse, the Old granary was extensively restored and renovated to provide character self catered guest accommodation in the heart of Suffolk’s working countryside.
