The Barn – Suffolk, England

The Barn – Suffolk, England

This is a seriously beautiful barn conversion with all the contemporary luxuries you could need, think aged beamed walls and ceilings, and furnished with antiques. Floor to ceiling windows where the doors once hung, let in the bright Suffolk light and the recently added conservatory is the perfect sun trap for lounging with a book. The bedrooms are huge  – and you’ll have to draw straws for the large fourposter suite that opens up onto the terrace.

Upstairs, the room in the vaulted attic has cosy arm chairs and day beds to admire the gorgeous view across the parkland. Larger families and parties can take this with The Clockhouse next door to sleep 14.

Our team are here to help plan your holiday.

The Wilderness Reserve represents a magical 8,000-acre paradise for wildlife restoration with conservation a central focus. Proudly housing a vast array of species, including 125 birds, 33 mammals, 220 plants, almost 600 moths, 23 butterflies, 20 dragonflies, and 4 amphibians, there’s plenty for you to explore too! These populations are keenly supported by 2,000 nest boxes and wildflower seed sown each year on top of the 1 million trees planted.

The Wilderness Reserve

The Barn is situated on 8,000 acres of remarkable parkland where arable pastures have been returned to nature, native woodland has burgeoned with the planting of thousands of trees, and lakes and wetlands have been created across three valleys. This is known as The Wilderness Reserve – an exceptionally diverse natural habitat for countless native species of wildlife and grazing sheep and cattle. Here you can lose yourself for a long weekend, or a week. Kick back, get close to nature and enjoy some of the cleanest air in the country.

The Wilderness Reserve is a place for total relaxation. You can explore this part of Suffolk, or choose to roam the estate on the Pashley bicycles stocked in each property (there are wellies you can borrow too); row or paddle board on the lakes; swimming; host a tennis tournament; clay pigeon shoot or learn about the natural inhabitants with the resident ranger. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome to come. Breakfast hampers can be provided, and private chefs can be organised, if you’re not tempted off the estate to one of the many fabulous local pubs and restaurants.
