Suffolk Stables And Barn

Suffolk Stables and Barn East of England

Light-filled living spaces and beautiful countryside views

Lovingly converted from the original stable block and with a fantastic imposing clock tower, Suffolk Stables opens onto a private courtyard where you can al fresco on balmy summer evenings or throw little something on the barbie. The rustic family kitchen with its large American fridge freezer boasts floor to ceiling French windows and wonderful tiled floors. The cosy drawing room, with its welcoming fireplace and flatscreen TV, is the perfect place to crash after a busy day exploring Suffolk and catch up on all the goings on. There are four luxurious king-size bedrooms with tellies and en suite bathrooms.

Guest reviews

What a fabulous place!  This house is in such a wonderfully peaceful countryside setting. We spent a week here with two other families and had an amazing week of fun, laughter and lots of good food.  The chef we hired for a special birthday meal was amazing too. Thank you Big House Experience for making the whole process so smooth and easy.
