Nestled into the mature trees around a peaceful pond is Alde Barn, a pretty yet luxurious retreat in rural Suffolk with abundant characterful features, private hot tub and picturesque rural surroundings. Bottle of champagne and a box of handmade Suffolk chocolates with every booking!
With high vaulted ceilings, exposed oak beams, a winding handmade timber staircase and a log burning fire, Alde Barn is full of traditional charm and personality. But it has also been beautifully updated and now antique furniture blends with contemporary comforts to create a delightful, not to mention romantic, home-from-home. If you’re looking for a bolthole where you can relax and enjoy tranquil countryside, long walks and coastal explorations then this could be just the place.
Rural Suffolk is a haven of country lanes, clear skies and wildlife so it’s the perfect destination when you want to escape the hustle and bustle. Walking and cycling are popular here, and activities like sailing, windsurfing and kayaking are available both on and offshore, or if you prefer gentler pursuits there are plenty of medieval buildings and historic houses to explore. The Heritage Coast, just half an hour away, is truly picturesque and has the well-known tourist spots of Aldeburgh, Orford and Southwold dotted along it. Or you could discover the awe-inspiring scenery of Dedham Vale, go shopping in a local craft and farm shop, or sit back in one of the many superb pubs and eateries on your doorstep.
The cottage is 5 minutes from the A140, along the A1120 Suffolk Tourist Route in Stonham Aspal. Go past the Church on your right, the village School & Ten Bells pub on your left, take the first right, signposted Crowfield Church. We are almost a mile down the lane on the right hand side.

You enter the barn via a stable door and go straight into a farmhouse-style kitchen with a pretty antique table, a Range cooker, a Belfast sink and a Nespresso coffee machine. The kitchen leads through to an intimate living area with a fireplace, a TV/DVD player and an iPod docking station, and on the ground floor there is also a bathroom with a powerful shower. A winding staircase from the main room leads up to a mezzanine bedroom with a solid wood sleigh bed.
Outside there is a large enclosed private garden with a lawn, a BBQ and a patio with a table and chairs. Outside you have a covered garden room with your very own private hot tub. We supply robes and slippers, as well as champagne buckets on stands for that ultimate luxurious touch too. There are also other cottages on site, all of which are set within the trees around a pond and a communal decked area.
The cottages are dog-friendly and will take up to three with a charge of
