From humble beginnings come great things, as the saying goes, and nowhere is this more true than this gorgeous barn. Starting out life as two nine-teenth-century cow sheds, these former outbuildings have been combined to create a beautiful open-plan home that's greater than the sum of its parts. Inside, flint walls and exposed oak beams hint at the barn's former existence. Still, with high-end furnishings, luxurious fixtures and three beautiful bedrooms (including one en-suite and one twin), it's the perfect high-end countryside retreat for a small group of friends or a family. Slide back the bifold doors and enjoy seamless access to the outdoors, perfect for warm summer days playing games in the private garden or barbecuing some delicious local produce before tucking into an alfresco feast at the table on the terrace. If you'd like to spend a day exploring the area, the towering trees of Thetford Forest lie twenty miles west, and the unspoiled Suffolk coast is approximately forty-five minutes' drive away.

Host


This home is managed by Jo

This home is managed directly by its owner who will be your point of contact before and during your stay. Your hosts have spent the last few years converting the farm buildings on their land into holiday homes. With experience welcoming guests, they also work harmoniously on the farm, growing crops such as wheat, barley, potatoes and herbs. Since they live and work on-site, feel rest assured that they will be readily available should you need assistance during your stay.

This home is nominated for the Plum Guide Award.
