Once used as an agricultural outbuilding, this huge barn has been transformed into a split-level holiday cottage. Wooden features create a warm and welcoming space, which is laid out perfectly for socialising together as a group. With cosy, country interiors, it's an idyllic setting to warm up in after a day out in the fresh countryside air. Fire up the barbecue during the warmer months at the alfresco dining area, which boasts views out onto a 16th-century whimsical moat. Then spend the evening relaxing in the patio's private hot tub – all year round. There's also an on-site games room with shared use with a ping pong table, foosball and pool tables. It's safe to say the kids will be entertained as there's even a children's playground which can be seen from inside the house – so parents can keep an eye on them with a cup of tea in hand. Located in Wattisham – a fifteen-minute drive from Stowmarket, there's easy access to great walks, wildlife spotting (including otters!) and day trips to Sutton Hoo – a fifty-minute drive away and Suffolk coastal towns such as Aldeburgh or Southwold – both reachable in around an hour's drive. For larger groups, ask the host about their other cottages, also on Plum Guide.

About Hadleigh

This ancient market town is nestled in Constable Country – a beautiful area of Suffolk that inspired the 18th-century artist’s most famous works. Hadleigh itself is packed full of character, with historic buildings and independent shops aplenty. Sandwiched between Sudbury and Ipswich, it may not be as well-known as its more prominent neighbours, but with its mixed architecture and picturesque valley setting, this quieter area still has lots to offer....
