Perfect for couples who appreciate the finer things in life. This Visit England accredited 5star barn will delight you for your stay or indeed is a great present for family/friends who appreciate the best too! Willows Barn is a totally private, self catering cottage, set in its own hedged half-acre of garden within the grounds of the owners farmhouse. A three night stay is the minimum break at Willows Barn.

Once walking through the topiary framed gate to this property you enter your own private garden of beautiful Suffolk countryside with long views over fields and magnificent 'big sky' landscape. A tennis court is solely yours to play on during your stay. The spacious hot tub is situated in a private and sheltered nook on the south terrace, just a few paces from the door of the barn and is surrounded by its own decking and s...

Interaction with guests
Our guests are free to arrive at any time they wish from 4pm onwards, whether they have the day off to arrive at 4pm or if travelling after work and want to arrive much later in the evening. All access details are contained in our Arrival information and guests can arrive totally independent of the owners which makes for a very relaxing start to a holiday. Rosalind and Kevin are very happy to come and help out with using the hot-tub or the woodburner or indeed anything to do with the barn during guest stays but are equally very low key and will not disturb you during your stay unless you require our assistance. The owners farmhouse is quite a distance from the barn and so your stay is totally private and not overlooked at all.

About the neighbourhood
The property itself is situated on a quiet country road overlooking fields and other pretty country properties with big sky views that will literally take your breath away. With a sunny south aspect the barn is nestled into its own half acre within the wonderfully landscaped grounds of a Victorian Farmhouse (which is a long way away from the barn) and catches the most wonderful sunsets to the west which are stunning all year round. The peaceful location and the private secure parking to the property ensures that your stay is interruption free. The garden and grounds to the barn are totally private and so guests are able to switch off from the hectic pace of life (if only just for the length of their break!) and maybe enjoy a game or two of tennis on the barn's own court and relax in... more
