Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom stable conversion in Pinford End, Hawstead

Swallows Roost was renovated to a high standard earlier this year. There are 2 generous double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, and a family bathroom. The third bedroom has two single beds, with room for a further single bed or cot if required. A spacious living area includes a television with a sound bar, which enables you to connect your own music via Bluetooth. The large open plan kitchen allows many hands to share the cooking while taking a full part in the conversation in the living area. Full height windows give wonderful views across two acres of grassland and farmland beyond. You can also savour the views from the large yet secluded area in front of the property, where you can sit peacefully, enjoy a barbecue or watch your children playing. If you would like a night out, babysitting can be arranged.

About Henry and Hayley Brewis

We are Henry and Hayley Brewis and we have lived at Pinford End Farmhouse, which is just across the lane from Swallows Roost, for 23 years. We have two daughters and cannot imagine living anywhere else. We are both airline pilots and although we have travelled the world, home is best!

Henry and Hayley Brewis purchased this barn in 1993

What makes this barn unique

The stables have been converted in the most sympathetic and eco-friendly way possible, retaining full height ceilings and the original stable doors. Energy needs are met by an air source heat pump which supplies underfloor heating throughout and solar panels which are tucked away in the meadow. Outside there is a large area for enjoying views over the countryside around a barbecue, with two acres of meadow at your disposal, leading down to the tiny River Lark.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful place to stay - very comfortable and well-appointed, warm and homely. Love the cosy underfloor heating. Beds were so comfy and all the towels and bed linen were fantastic quality. Lovely friendly welcome, + great food provisions from the owners, including 2 lovely bottles of wine! Lovely big field and stream outside for the children to play in. We would definitely come again!

Superb property!

Excellent communication with owners enabled us to arrive at short notice and upon arrival it was great to find treats and essentials awaiting after a 6 hour drive! We didn't want to leave and shall return for a full week as it is a wonderful property for rest and relaxation. Thank you!

Beautiful

We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the past 20 years but I can honestly say this is the best one. Beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could think of. Lovely welcome hamper as well. Have recommended to friends.

We were a party of six adults and we couldn't have been more happy with Swallows Roost. The accommodation was well equipped, spacious and modern set in lovely countryside.

Brilliant!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is above a 5 star. Owners thought of everything. So well stocked for cooking, grilling, etc. The owners provided notebook with instructions for everything from appliances to nearby history, shopping and just enjoying the beautiful countryside. We ate dinner outside with gorgeous view while watching pheasants, rabbits and all kinds of birds. Nice touch when arrived with fresh eggs, wine and bread. Stocked with spices for cooking. If you want a relaxing, luxurious stay with all the modern amenities, this is the perfect place. We had 6 adults and there was plenty of room for all. Thanks Henri and Hayley for sharing your part of the world with us.

Swallows Roost has all the benefits of a peaceful, rural location, but is only 10 minutes from the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds. The National Trust Ickworth Estate is also only 10 minutes away and the scenic towns of Lavenham and Long Melford are also within easy reach. Swallows Roost makes an ideal base for walking, cycling and exploring Suffolk. Bicycles can be hired from the cycle cafe in the village and Clarice House spa is close by for some pampering. Horse riding is yet another of the many possibilities on offer.
