A relaxed tranquil wedding venue set in the heart of the Suffolk Countryside yet easily accessible from London and the adjoining counties.

The venue together with the hall and church (formerly chapel to the hall) undoubtedly has a long and fascinating history. In its present form it dates back to around c.10th century when it was believed to have been occupied by Aelfflaed, sister in Law to Edmund 1st (Edmund the Magnificent) of England, following the death of her husband Bryhtnoth the Ealdorham of Essex at the Battle of Maldon .

The village is named after her Alpheton being a corruption over the centuries of "Aelfflaed's tun," tun meaning estate or lands.

The Church is situated immediately adjacent to the Hall and the Barns and like them it also is believed to date back to the 10th century albeit there is no indication of its dedication prior to the Reformation, it believdd to have served as a chapel to the residents of the Hall.

The church has huge amount of atmosphere and has managed to defy the revages of modern technology and retains its oil lights, albeit the organist and vicar are permitted electric lighting and the organ is electric operated. Under pew electric heating is provided for those cold days.
