Charity Farm Barn sits hidden away off the road and principally faces south with an outlook across an extremely long garden of around 200' from the rear of the main reception room. Adjacent to the right hand side is the original farmhouse: a fine looking Grade II Listed thatched property, with to the left a grass meadow.

The village is well served and now includes a Community Stores along with The Black Horse Pub, Village Hall, Parish Church and importantly a well regarded Primary School within Hartismere catchment. Bus Routes link Thorndon with the surrounding area and the road system allows easy access to towns and villages such as Eye, Debenham, Stowmarket and Woodbridge along with Diss on the Norfolk Suffolk border, where the mainline rail station provides a commuter service to London Liverpool Street.

Hardly visible from the road the barn sits back to the left of a shared driveway/track leading off what is generally considered to be a quiet village lane. The long plot allows for parking of three cars and from a paved terrace at the rear of the main reception room, the remaining garden extends to over 200' where it meets open countryside being bordered by a meadow to the left and Charity Farm House with its garden to the right.
