More than you could ever want

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property in a lovely part of the world.

Kerry is a very friendly and thoughtful host who put us at ease immediately, helped us plan some excursions and left us to enjoy the very comfortable and really beautiful converted barn. The property is very quiet and nestled in amongst fields and hedgerows, whilst also being a 20min gentle drive to Southwold. It has everything you need to retreat, and is close enough to everything if you want to go on an adventure.

The barn was spotless when we arrived and very well appointed. Kerry had even thought to leave fresh milk and orange juice in the fridge for us.

We had a truly lovely 4 night stay and will greatly look forward to a return

Lovely spacious barn

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week staying here with our 2 young children. Kerry gave us a warm welcome and showed us round. The barn is very spacious, much more so than we expected. The kitchen is well equipped and there are even toys for children. Although it’s in a rural setting, this is what we wanted, and there is plenty to do within a 30 minute drive.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a barn!

The vaulted ceiling in the huge living room makes this place like no other cottage we've stayed in.

Beautifully maintained. Both bedrooms are very comfortable. The "gallery/mezzanine" bedroom (en-suite) over the living room has a very special feel.

The living room has great space with two lounge areas and a "games end" with playstation and pool table for the kids.

The pond at the rear is delightfully restful space, with the water lilies opening with the sunny aspect.

Kerry was very prompt and attentive with our booking and there to greet us on arrival.

A smashing place for two couples, or a family with 2/3 kids (probably not toddlers). The local village Halesworth, (7 minutes drive) had all we needed for quick shops, papers and the like.

A barn and holiday that will stick in the memory.
