Nestled in the very heart of the rolling Suffolk countryside, Lavender Barn is just waiting to welcome holidaymakers for an utterly relaxing and peaceful self-catering escape in this picturesque part of the world. Surrounded by patchwork fields, whose colours change throughout every season, Lavender Barn sits on a secluded site of three properties. Apart from a small step up to rear doors, the barn offers single floor living - perfect for those who may struggle with numerous staircases. 

A former dairy to the farmhouse on site, the barn wraps around in a 'U' shape, with french doors from the kitchen, sitting room and master bedroom all leading out to the enclosed rear terrace. To the front of the property is a lovely garden, laid to lawn. Holidaymakers can sit back and take in the scenery as pottering toddlers take in the fresh countryside air, or 4-legged friends explore the grass beneath their paws. In fact there are plenty of footpaths to explore in the surrounding area, so remember to pack your camera to capture long lasting memories. Lavender Barn is also conveniently located close to Haughley Park and Ixworth House and provides a good base for travelling wedding guests who may be visiting from afar. 

Nature lovers, keep your eyes peeled! Regularly spotted on site and in the surrounding area include Hares, Little Owl's, Geese, Partridge, Pheasants, Roe Deer, Muntjac Deer and occasionally Red Deer.

So have you been searching for the perfect family holiday home to escape the hustle and bustle of 'real life'? You'll find it here at Lavender Barn. Pub: 1 mile, Shop: 5.7 miles.
