Dragonfly is a charming open plan self-catering barn-conversion with a wonderfully light and airy feel. Located in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, this self-catering holiday home is a relaxing retreat only a short distance from Halesworth. Southwold, Bungay and Beccles are within easy reach; Norwich, Ipswich, Gt Yarmouth and Lowestoft are 25-30 miles distant. Upstairs the bedrooms have an inviting tone with crisp white linen and period features; and the sunlight floods in. The open plan living space is fantastic for relaxing after a day exploring and the double doors by the dining table really bring the outside in. However, the champion of this property is the outside space; although situated in the homeowners’ grounds, Dragonfly has a delightfully private garden with one area laid to lawn complete with trampoline, a gravelled area with cosy bench, a large natural pond and a paved area with garden furniture. In addition, there is a sheltered open barn housing the lovely hot tub, the icing on the cake!

Lovely property - very relaxing, especially with the hot tub. Hosts were lovely and very kind and helpfulJulie Dunk
Lovely cottage in a very quiet setting with ducks, pheasants and squirrels in the grounds and around the ponds. Great hot tub for sitting with a glass of wine in the evening looking at the stars. Excellent pub just 8 minutes stroll away serving fabulous home cooked meals.Maureen Daniels
A cute “full of character” place with a fab hot tub that was well used! Owners very friendly & helpful. Beds extremely comfy! A great location, converted barn on owners’ property, ideal for exploring coastal Suffolk towns. Barn was equipped enough to stay comfortably. Only downside was no WiFi as it did not work at all. Relied on 4G - as routers did not reach from owners property. Owners aware now though so hopefully won’t be a problem for long!Joanne Songco
