Description

An outstanding Suffolk self-catering holiday home with lovely patio and gardens overlooking the countryside, just 2 miles from the coast at Orford. A Hot Tub, indoor heated training pool and top of the range exercise bikes add to the year round appeal of Butley Barns. The accommodation has been created from two adjoining thatched barns, whilst further barns house the fitness suite and a games area. Butley Barn has been superbly refurbished for boutique holidays or corporate accommodation for 12 to 14. 

Butley Barn is made up of two adjoining traditional, thatched Suffolk barns, their size suggesting that they were originally built to house the livestock and produce for a really large farm. Some years ago, Butley Barns was converted into a pottery and artist's studio. In 2011 the entire complex was purchased by its current owners who have completely refurbished the largest barns to create a superb property, with spacious and very private en-suite accommodation for up to 14 people.

There has been a real eye to detail and bathrooms are finished in limestone, their baths extra wide for additional comfort. The best features of the barn have been carefully renovated, retaining the vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and wide oak flooring planks. The old studio accommodates a pool table, painting easel and games. Pub: 0.4 miles, Shop: 0.4 miles.

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

The property was perfect for us and all the kids. The facilities exceeded our expectations. We would love to stay there again some time soon.S Dolman - 16th March 2019
The property was booked for a group of guests (including bride and groom!) for a wedding at nearby Butley Priory. Excellent location for this. Plenty of space for us and more family who stayed at Old Café to have an evening meal together. Eve (housekeeper) was excellent - very helpful.Mrs Judith Kendall - 12th November 2018
We had an awesome time. Such a beautiful barn and the owner made us feel so very welcome... home away from home!!!Mr L, Hertford. - 24th August 2015
Beautiful barn - the best holiday home we have stayed in. We enjoyed the garden and patio and we love the long tables which are great for family meals.A previous customer - 10th June 2015
The property was faultless.Jane S, Suffolk - 12th April 2015
Fantastic house, well equipped and tastefully decorated.Karen L, Surrey - 27th September 2014
It is the fourth year in a row we have booked...Thanks once again for another wonderful stay in a wonderful property!Ian B, Essex - 2nd September 2014
Eleven of us in the late fifties plus category had a long weekend here in October 2013 and we were all delighted by the venue. Spacious, superbly stocked and equipped and in beautiful countryside with lots of nearby attractions. I cannot recommend Butley Barn too highly if one is looking for a large group stay in Suffolk. Excellent value for money.Mr E, Oxon - 28th October 2013
