Jo West purchased this Farmhouse in 1920
Why Jo West chose Brome and Oakley
Beautiful quiet location but close enough to the the small, thriving town of Eye and next to historic Brome Church. Our family have lived in this area for over 100yrs and although we have all been away and travelled etc. we keep returning. We live half a mile away in another farmhouse and are currently converting more farm barns into holiday lets which will be ready at the end of 2018
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We love the feeling of space in the house. There is plenty of room for several generations of families and for large groups of friends to have reunions and fun times away. It is a great house for hide and seek. The games room is great for young and old alike and there is enough space for part of the group to be noisy whilst others can have peace and quiet.

Perfect house, perfect location, perfect owner!!
I rented this house for my sisters hen weekend, with girls aged from 30 to 59 years old, and I cannot say enough good things about it. It is huge and has the most gorgeous garden which we were fortunate enough to get lots of use out of due to having great weather. The bedrooms were all beautiful and more than big enough for everyone. The games room and pianos were really good fun too and there are bikes to use as well.
There is a pub just up the road and a shop nearby too. The house is very easy to get to and there are some amazing places nearby to visit. We did canoeing during the daytime which was so much fun.
The owner Jo was a pleasure to deal with. Communication was great and she let me into the house the day before the hen weekend so that I could set up all of the decorations ready for the girls arrival! She even left a gorgeous welcome basket full of delicious treats for us too!
I could only dream of owning a stunning house like this and I will be recommending it to everyone! I shall definitely be returning. If I could give this house more than 5* I would!
Thank you Jo for what will be a very memorable weekend for our family and especially for my sister xx
Thank you Donna, We are so pleased you all had a fabulous weekend and loved the house as much as we do. We would love to welcome you and/or any of your friends in the future. Thank you also for being perfect guests. Jo

Eight of us old university friends got together for a reunion on the year that we all turned 50. The place was perfect for what we wanted - plenty of space, good facilities, lovely location.
Jo was particularly helpful considering I had booked the wrong dates!
