Description

On the edge of the hamlet of Butley close to the Suffolk coast, a group of old thatched barns has been transformed to create outstanding self-catering accommodation for up to 20 adults, with additional beds for small children and babies. The largest barn and the attached old granary accommodate 14, the neighbouring barn accommodates 6. Bedrooms are en suite, and there are several lovely sitting rooms in which to relax, as well as spacious dining accommodation and lovely gardens including a large patio area directly outside the largest barn. Orchards and grassed areas, an astro turf games area, games room, Hot tub, indoor heated training pool and state of the art gym are also available to guests. 

Originally The Barns at Butley would have housed livestock, threshing equipment and grain. Towards the end of the last century the barns were converted into artists and potters studios, a gallery and a small cafe for gallery visitors, passing walkers and cyclists. In 2011 the entire complex of buildings was purchased by its current owners and over the last three years the barns have been re-thatched and refurbished to create 2 lovely self-catering properties, a large gym and indoor training pool and a games area. Every room has its own bathroom or shower room, the majority having zip and link beds providing maximum comfort and flexibility. There are two good sized utility rooms and a separate laundry room. Pub: 0.4 miles, Shop: 0.4 miles.  

The Barns at Butley is made up of two barns (Butley Barn and The Pottery Barn), next door to each other.

At the northern edge of Rendlesham Forest, a lovely area for woodland walks and mountain biking, Butley Barns are just a short walk from the village of Butley. There are some splendid country walks here; most notably Staverton Thicks, which has a deer park and woods of oak and holly; the oldest trees date back more than 400 years. The area has a fascinating history. Nearby Butley Priory, built in the 11th century, was for centuries the haunt of kings. Just a walk away are Butley Clumps, a fascinating avenue of beech trees planted in fours, with a pine tree at the centre of each clump - a quincunx. Butley has long been renowned for its oysters, and the oyster beds have recently been revived. You can buy oysters, in season, in Orford at the Butley Orford Oysterage.

Reviews

We absolutely loved our stay at Butley Barnes and it was the perfect property for us. The rooms are all a great size with en suite in each, and the older kids absolutely loved having their own mini apartment. The facilities including pool, hot tub, pool table and ping pong were brilliant for kids and adults alike. There is a great pub just around the corner, within easy walking distance and a small playground at the village hall, also just a few mins walk away. I would highly recommend the property and will definitely look to stay there again. - 22nd March 2019
Beautiful property! Stunningly finished and with everything we needed. Great pub a walk away too and gorgeous local area. Highly recommend!!!Miss Astra Taylor-Todd - 20th June 2018
Amazing property ideal for big groups.Mr Mark Whitworth - 21st March 2018
There were lots of nice touches. Also, the games room was great. There were plenty of rooms for the children to have a space of their own to play , which they loved!Jan S, Essex - 22nd September 2015
