Linden House, Eye, Suffolk

Linden House is one of the most important buildings in this historic Suffolk town. The house originated as a Tudor period farmhouse, being converted to a Georgian townhouse in the 18th century.

The brick skin over its timber frame has turned it into a smart classical building, retaining a homely atmosphere in its simple interior layout. Once occupied by eccentric sisters, two of whom were leading suffragettes. Also a scene for a Miss Marple thriller.

The town of Eye itself surrounds a castle mound of William I’s time. The town contains excellent country shops and fine buildings, including a spectacular parish church, which should not be missed.

Tour features

Ground floor and first floors contain many portraits, family effects and varied, interesting items of history and of foreign travel.

Testimonial

Thank you for such an interesting time in your beautiful home, also for the excellent refreshments.

Directions

Travelling north on the A140 towards Norwich, take the B1117 (opposite the Auberge) to Eye. On reaching Eye, with Barclays Bank ahead, turn left and travel 250 yards, leaving the Town Hall on the left. You are now in Lambseth Street. Linden House stands back slightly from the line of buildings on the right. White posts and chains and five pollarded lime trees stand in front of the house. There is some room for parking right outside.

An easy access road off the A140 from the north is the B1077 from Brome. Linden House will be on the left, 100 yards short of the Town Hall.
