Rent the Barn
If you would like to rent out the whole property we completely understand – it’s a lovely place for a family get together, a catch up with friends, host your book club or throw a (well behaved) party.
Hire of the whole barn starts at £1,950 for a long weekend.
- The Barn can be rented out either on a B&B or self-catering basis (more below to explain exactly what that means) – whichever option works better for you. We can also be used as a location for filming, photo shoots etc. (see in the section below). Please click on the map to get a sense of how it all fits together (there are plenty of photos of the bedrooms on the booking page). All the areas apart from the area shaded dark grey on the right are for you to enjoy! Not forgetting five acres of garden and woodland….
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 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 an ottoman that expands to a comfortable single bed (Bo Concept Xtra) in each of the rooms so that we can accommodate up to fifteen people. We also have a cot which you are welcome to use. We don’t have high chairs etc so if you have young children you had better bring your own kit (by all means discuss it with us before hand).
For anyone renting the Barn on a ‘self catering’ basis our beautiful and well equipped kitchen (complete with a huge copper topped island) is completely at your disposal. With a large Siemens induction hob and two ovens (one with integrated microwave) you can easily cook up a storm. We also have dozens of cookery books to inspire.
You are welcome to help yourself to our Honesty Bar – both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Just make a note and then we can settle up at the end.
As you can see from the floorplan we do live at one end of the Barn however we are entirely self sufficient (without our own front door) so you can see as much or as little as you wish!
