Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

The Suffolk Coast and Heaths is one of only forty-six areas given the title ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. And when your home is located in the award-winning region itself, it’s easy to see why. This cottage is one of six converted barns dotted around a central courtyard in the lush, Suffolk countryside. The farmyard sounds may be gone (although there’s still a working livery onsite), but the rural charm remains. While the home is kitted out for 21st-century living, we love the original features of the former barn – exposed brickwork and thick timber beams remind you of its rustic roots. The livestock certainly must have lived in style, as you’ll find a spacious open-plan living area with understated elegance. Neutral tones create a calming vibe, but another relaxed spot is the private patio where you can sip your morning Earl Grey. Take a wander out into the fields, where you’ll find uninterrupted views across acres of farmland towards Tunstall Forest. The village of Iken is a thirteen-minute stroll from home, or hop in the car for the same amount of time to reach Aldeburgh – grab a portion of fish and chips and make the most of its shingle beach.

About Aldeburgh

When the sun sets on Aldeburgh, the pastel-coloured houses that line the shore seem to glow and the pebbled beach takes on a rainbow hue. Here, the buildings come right up to the beach, so you just need to hop over the coastal wall to reach the sea. The seaside town was once home to Benjamin Britten, and it still retains its creative pull, with the Aldeburgh Festival of Music...
