Reviews

This is a large and lovely old barn, ideally situated in countryside between Southwold and Aldeburgh, about 20 minutes drive away. It is ideal for a family party as there is plenty of space inside, and for children to play in the garden. There is a lovely sandy beach at Southwold and at Walberswick, where the children went crabbing in the harbour. RSPB Minsmere is nearby for birdwatchers and there are great walks along the coast.Mrs Jean Hamlyn - 11th July 2019
Lovely spacious home with a well equipped kitchen in a lovely part of Suffolk. Plenty for all ages to do and a super base to come back to after exploring the countryside - 26th April 2019
we had a family weekend away to celebrate our parents 80th Birthdays so there were mixed ages from 9wks to 80 including couple of teenagers . This property catered brilliantly for everyone. Plenty of space all the equipment you could need and the hot tub was huge. There was a problem with the hot tub thermostat but the maintenance team sorted it immediately. It was great to have sky TV for the live football and films. Old Barn made our weekend very special and everyone had a great time. Mrs Angela Edwardes - 26th April 2019
An amazing property. - 10th April 2019
Excellent accommodation, very well equipped and only a short drive to the coast. The hot tub, pool table and the trampoline provided lots of entertainment. - 2nd March 2019
“This house exceeded our expectations...it’s an amazing space which was perfect for our party of 5 couples and 5 young children. Lots of room so you don’t feel on top of each other. The kitchen is full of cooking pans, dishes and utensils. The hot tub and sauna were spot on. We all really want to re book because we just had the best time.”Kate George - 11th February 2019
A lovely large and fully equipped property. Facilities were excellent. Really pleased with the property. The hot tub, trampoline and snooker table were a great hit for all the family. Both the adults and the children had a brilliant time. The property was very clean and the bedding and towels spotless. Miss Diane Burgess - 7th November 2018
We hired the Barn for a hen weekend, 10 ladies, and we had a wonderful time. Excellent size property, lovely big table in the dining area and a large very well equipped kitchen. Hot tub was fabulous and we even used the trampoline. Access to the property was easy. All in all a great spacious place and I have already recommended it to quite a few friends. A wonderful find. Mrs Wendy Stevenson - 28th May 2018
Beautiful property in a quiet but very good location, which has very easy access to main road and to lovely coastal locations. A very well equipped property, ideal for family get-togethers. Mr Christopher Wall - 5th January 2018
This is a fantastic house to host a family and friends party. There is plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing in. The location is great for walking, cycling and seeing the sea! If you want water closer to hand then there is always the hut tub in the patio. Spent three nights here and everyone had a great time.Mrs Elizabeth Gladwell - 1st December 2017
A fantastic property in a great location. Property is really well equipped. Wonderful comfy beds! Thank you - we enjoyed our stay.Alison W, Essex - 22nd April 2015
