Bridge Farm Barns
Bridge Farm Plants is part of Bridge Farm Barns, a collection of unique, independent retail businesses and a tea room.
Situated in a restored granary, the Corn Craft gift shop has an extensive range of cards and gifts including jewellery, local prints, ceramics, stationery, books, preserves, candles and traditional Suffolk corn dollies.
In the same building is the restaurant and tea room, open daily for homemade breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas, and the Black Barn Toys and Games shop.
The Brett Gallery, a showcase for East Anglian artists and craftspeople, has been joined next door by Polka Dots & Petticoats which is packed with retro clothing.
A treasure trove of vintage, antiques, shabby chic furniture and collectibles is spread over two floors in Sarah's Attic.
Next door to them is Oliven - a patchwork, quilting and felting shop which opened in 2015 and also offers workshops.
Opposite our polytunnel in the rear car park is Lavenham Falconry, offering a range of flying experiences, a reptile area and more.
The site offers something for all ages so is a popular destination for family groups as well as friends who want to get together.
Several special events take place at Bridge Farm Barns including the Sunbeam Motor Cycle Club's Constable Run, vintage fairs and rallies by the Monks Eleigh Bygone Collectors Club and other meets of vintage vehicles. Coach parties are welcome visitors to Bridge Farm Barns where they can listen to talks on the traditional craft of making Corn Dollies, by prior arrangement.
Monks Eleigh is close to the equally picturesque villages of Lavenham, Long Melford and Chelsworth, between the market towns of Sudbury, Hadleigh and Stowmarket.
Bridge Farm Barns is signposted as 'Corn Craft' from the A1141 and B1115.
