We want you to feel entirely at home when you stay at Five Acre Barn – read the papers in the Barn, fix yourself a drink, settle down with a book in the garden, huddle round the fire pit, test your knowledge of the Milky Way or, if you are feeling energetic go for a wander through the woods and beyond.
All our light, bright, rooms can be found in the new cedar clad extension, enjoying soaring ceilings (six metres at the highest point), polished, heated concrete floors and access to the garden.
Bedrooms one to four follow the same layout with king size beds set on an airy plywood mezzanine – lie in bed and take in the Suffolk skies through a huge roof-light (complete with solar operated blinds). Mezzanines are access by a beautiful ply staircase (a few people thought that they required a ladder so we thought we should make that clear!). All beds linen is 100% cotton sheets and duvets (pillows a choice of feather or hollow fibre). Downstairs is the sitting room – read a book, look out the garden or watch TV (if you have time) – with doors leading to the garden. All rooms have compact – but perfectly formed – bathrooms – bedrooms one and two have wet room style showers. Bedrooms three and four have baths in which to soak and indulge.
Bedroom Five is our ‘Garden Room’. Laid out on a single storey (fully accessible for wheelchair users or for guests that would rather not negotiate stairs at bedtime) it enjoys the full height of the roof and sweeping views across the garden to be enjoyed from a comfortable sofa. There is both a fully accessible shower and a luxurious bathroom. There is also a ottoman that expands to a comfortable single bed.
We use delicious Bramley products – www.bramleyproducts.co.uk – in our bathrooms. Made in the British countryside they only use natural ingredients – Geranium, Lavender, Sweet Orange….
