About this Suffolk barn: A super conversion of a large and imposing Suffolk barn. This new barn conversion has been designed to make full use of its wonderful space and height to create a delightful open plan living area, oozing comfort, warmth and homeliness. The majority of the windows look west over the large lawned garden (around 1 acre) and over the lake to woodland in the distance. Well separated from the owner's farmhouse, the barn has been converted into a holiday home for up to 13 people (10 adults, 3 children). Great care was taken to retain the double storey area which has been transformed into a warm and very comfortable raised living area with feature sloping stone floor (with wheelchair access) leading to the kitchen and living room. Sleeping accommodation is spread over three areas with three bedrooms, a bathroom and cloakroom on the ground floor, a further three bedrooms, a bathroom and cloakroom on the mezzanine floor and a master suite on the first floor, making the barn perfect for a group of friends or extended family.

The double height barn doors to the front and back have been replaced by glass doors giving maximum light for the living area throughout the day as well as ensuring that no one will miss out on the fantastic views and lovely Suffolk sunsets. The entrance is at ground level where there is an open stone floored hall area which leads to the west side of the building. From here the floor slopes gently upwards creating an unusual and very attractive walkway to the open plan kitchen and living area. The kitchen is well equipped and great to cook in, but within viewing and chatting distance of the living area - the designated cook need not miss out on the conviviality of the party.

In addition to the master suite (accessed by its own staircase), there are ground floor bedrooms (with wheel chair access), state of the art bathrooms and a further three bedrooms and bathrooms on the mezzanine floor, where there is also a sunny galleried seating area.

The Grounds: Doors open on to a large raised terrace where there is space for both a hot tub and outdoor table and chairs (a hot tub can be hired for your stay). Step down from the terrace to a sheltered patio, with comfortable deck chairs provided for sunbathers. To the side of the patio is an attractive outhouse where outside chairs and bikes can be stored. There is a second fridge freezer for groups who want to self cater throughout their stay.

To the far west of the barn is a large roofed area, again with table and chairs and a door leading to an outside cloakroom and spacious utility room. There is a full sized tennis court for sole use of guests.

The Property has its own private entrance and the garden is fully fenced (the lake being the other side) for the safety of children. There is a public path running along the boundary of the grounds which eventually leads to a second lake abutting the River Deben.

This Suffolk property is ideal for: A large family gathering or group of friends wanting a relaxing holiday in the heart of rural Suffolk. The very private large garden, tennis court and hot tub (booked separately) are extremely attractive and will appeal to youngsters and adults alike. Under a mile from the nearest railway station, The Property is the perfect setting for a family or friends get together and with Snape Maltings Concert Hall, the fascinating ancient market town of Woodbridge and the coast at Aldeburgh all within a 20 minute drive, there will be plenty for everyone to enjoy what ever time of the year you plan to visit.

Walking, cycling, golf, horse riding, music, art and great places to picnic are all on your door step.

Parking: There is parking for at least 6 to 7 cars in the private drive.

Eating and Drinking: Right on your doorstep is The Dog and Duck in Campsea Ashe, with a menu highly influenced by the coast and countryside of Suffolk. For more good pub food, pop down to The Ship at Blaxhall or the Plough and Sail at Snape Maltings.

Self Catering: The Snape Maltings complex which has a food hall and a regular farmers market is only 10 minutes by car and is well worth a visit for the craft and art shops, tea rooms and lovely walks along the River Alde. Wickham Market is a 5 minute drive away with a Co-op superstore and the famous family butcher, Revetts & Son serving their award winning sausages.

The market town of Woodbridge is also just a 15 minute drive away and has a Co-op supermarket, open from 7am until 10pm daily. For locally produced goods there are independent grocers, a butcher and a fishmonger, and once a month there is the Woodbridge farmers' market. Alternatively, all major supermarkets offer home delivery to this address.

The somewhat curious county of Suffolk forms a part of the region known as East Anglia. Its eastern edge is bounded by the North Sea, with neighbouring Norfolk to the north and Essex to the south. The county of Cambridgeshire lies to the west. It has no cities and no motorways, but it does have many gardens and ruins and history in spades, from the Magna Carta to the Saxon relics of Sutton Hoo.

Unusual (for Britain) timber-framed buildings, dating back to the 16th century, vie with Tudor mansions in the attractive streets of market towns. In common with Norfolk, it is a fairly flat county, with much of its area devoted to farming and other rural pursuits. Its coastal geology of sand and clay, combined with the longshore drift current of the sea, means that the land is eroding constantly. Sea defences protect many of the towns but, equally, a good deal of property has been lost as the cliffs are worn away, and more is threatened.

Suffolk is famous throughout the UK for its distinctive dialect, horse racing (the town of Newmarket is the epicentre of British racing) and the arts. Festivals and other shows are common, and fish and chips and Adnam's ale are the order of the day.

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
