The Experience

A spacious detached barn, stylishly renovated by the current owners to provide a perfect base from which to enjoy this part of Suffolk either as a romantic getaway or family break.

The barn has been tastefully decorated in stylish neutral tones for a calming sophisticated feel while the high ceilings and tiled flooring throughout create a light and airy atmosphere.

Accessed via the entrance hall, with handy storage for muddy boots and leading through to the stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with full height windows giving uninterrupted panoramic views over the Suffolk countryside.

Large sliding doors allow guests to really bring the outside in while the lounge area enjoys comfortable sofas, Smart TV/DVD and contemporary free standing wood burner.

The kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and hob and warming drawer, fridge/freezer with ice and water dispenser, dishwasher, microwave and wine chilling cabinet. Guests have the choice of using the dining table or the useful breakfast bar with stools. The utility room contains a handy sink, washing machine and tumble dryer.

From the inner hall there is a bathroom with a low level window so that the view can be enjoyed while soaking in the bath, a separate shower and WC. A king-size zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made into a twin on request), Smart TV and en-suite bathroom with corner bath, separate shower and WC. The second bedroom features twin zip-and-link beds (which can be made into a super-king-size on request) with TV.

Venturing outside, guests will find a side garden, fully enclosed with garden furniture.
The front garden featuring a private patio area with BBQ plinth and hot tub, purposefully placed to enjoy the views and more garden seating, ideal for a spot of alfresco dining and glass of wine on a warm summer evening.

This delightful barn offers a perfect base to enjoy the local Suffolk countryside and attractions.

Walking and cycling tracks through charming villages or nearby Thetford Forest will suit the more active guest or perhaps enjoy the sights at one of the National Trust properties in the area.

A short drive away you will find Bury St Edmunds, a pretty market town, which offer a wide array of amenities and attractions for all ages including the Cathedral and Abbey gardens, prestigious shopping, an award-winning market and Theatre Royal.

Further afield lies Suffolk’s Heritage Coast home of RSPB reserve Minsmere, Orford Ness, Snape Maltings Shops and Concert Hall, and the lovely sandy beaches of Walberswick and Southwold.
