About the Property: Nestled just minutes from the centre of the popular market town of Eye, Rookery Barn is the perfect base for exploring Suffolk. Situated on a private, shared drive and set back from the road you really do feel secluded once inside. Entering through the kitchen/diner, the cottage has a natural flow, leading out to the sitting room, small day room, bathroom and small, private terraced garden.


Rookery Barn has the benefit of two double bedrooms, each accessed via its own staircase - perfect for those who are easily disturbed during the night. Each bedroom has a light and modern feel, with large windows allowing plenty of natural light.

For tech lovers - multi-plug adaptor chargers are provided in both the bedrooms and the sitting room - ideal if you have forgotten to bring your own. There is also a surround-sound music system with iPod dock and USB port for those who don?t like the quiet! Gamers will also love the use of the Xbox console, as well as the Amazon Fire Stick. 

Sleeps: 4 in 2 double bedrooms. There is an additional twin bedroom on the ground floor with sofa beds if required - please add this to the customer requests when booking.


This property is ideal for: Families, couples or friends looking for a base to explore the county of Suffolk. There are plenty of country lanes and fields to explore by bike, as well as numerous footpaths to be enjoyed. Take a camera and capture not only the fascinating streets of Eye, but the fields and countryside just a short drive away.


Minimum hire: Three nights; except at Christmas and Easter when it is a week. Friday changeover in high season.


About the Area: Eye is a very small market town. Dating back to Roman times it was once strategically important, thus the fascinating Eye Castle and splendid church; the town hall is Italianate and there are many fascinating old buildings throughout Eye.  There is a good choice of shops, all of which are within a very easy walk of Rookery Barn.


There is plenty of fascinating architecture to be enjoyed, including Eye Castle and St Peter and St Paul Church - both of which have fascinating histories. Walking around the streets in the town you really do feel as if you are stepping back in time - there really is a slower pace of life in this part of the country.

Self-catering eating and drinking: Grocery deliveries are available and there is a great selection of catering options for your stay at Rookery Barn. Eye has a great selection of shops including two Co-op supermarkets, two butchers, a flower shop, a delicatessen, a bakery and a chocolate shop.  There is an award-winning, weekly Country Market in the Town Hall (Wednesdays) where fresh produce and home-made cakes and preserves are available.


Eating out in Eye:
There are around half a dozen local cafes and several eateries in Eye including three pubs, the nearest being the Queen's Head and there is a good fish and chip shop - we have yet to try them all, but we are working on it.  We have however experienced Cocoa Mama which has a warm welcome, lovely hot chocolate and outstanding cakes; they run courses and give talks on chocolate making - yummy!  


Slightly further out are The Oaksmere and The Brome Grange hotels - both offering an enjoyable eating experience.
