One of the best parts of running a Bed & Breakfast is hearing how much people have enjoyed their stay - it makes it all worthwhile. We also really appreciate guests who have suggested how we might improve - we have had some great advice!

We have also been lucky enough to have received mentions in the press and on blogs. This is what some of them had to say about Five Acre Barn:

 

“Set in the heart of Suffolk’s smuggler country, Five Acre Barn is a stylish rural retreat for nature-starved Londoners seeking respite from the city. Its striking design, friendly welcome and fantastic setting on the fringes of an area of outstanding natural beauty make it the perfect spot to explore a fascinating part of the British countryside”.

“Breakfast is a convivial affair, with guests chatting around a chunky communal table, while Bruce whips up poached eggs ….. we share suggestions about things to do – doughnuts at the famous Pump Street Bakery, checking out the boats and art at nearby Snape Maltings, mooching along the shingle at Aldeburgh, or dining at the pub up the road in Thorpeness.”

“The end result elevates the collection of buildings into a simple piece of contemporary architecture, which sits comfortably in the mature landscape garden setting. This project has been a labour of love for our clients, who did much of the construction work themselves.”

Our guests have left some lovely comments too on TripAdvisor.  This is what Kim wrote:

“….The property is stunning – modern, stylish with huge bedrooms and beautiful communal spaces.  There are so many great touches – too many to write in detail about here but we particularly loved lying in bed and watching the clouds float past the enormous skylight windows….. All in all a recipe for the perfect weekend!”
