Property details

This charming, rose covered, converted barn sleeps four in open-plan double bedrooms situated on mezzanine balconies, overlooking the main living area.

Tastefully restored, Rose Barn is the perfect hideaway for a couple or family wanting to explore a bit of rural Suffolk. The main bedroom offers spectacular views over Constable’s countryside while a large, homely and relaxed living area has been created downstairs. With steep spiral staircases leading to each of the two bedrooms Rose Barn is not ideally suited for children under 10 years or those less mobile.

The property is accessed via a pretty, enclosed swimming pool area with the pool open May to September (available to guests on a non-exclusive basis). An astro-turf tennis court is also available all year round, with owner permission, and guests are encouraged to make the most of the wonderful walks, cycle routes and golf* this area has to offer. Personal training, yoga and tennis coaching are available by prior arrangement, please call the Suffolk Hideaways' office for more details. There is also the opportunity to arrange wine tasting (additional charge), please talk to the Suffolk Hideaways team for more information.

Please note that Rose Barn opens onto an unfenced swimming pool. The owners therefore request that every care is taken to monitor children and would like to make it clear that use of the swimming pool is entirely at the risk of the guests. The owners are unable to accept any responsibility for any damage or injury incurred.

*The 36 hole Stoke-by-Nayland course is a mere 4 miles away. Suffolk Hideaways’ guests receive 20% off green fees and 10% off spa treatments.

Rose Barn sits adjacent to another fabulous converted barn, Court Barn, sleeping six guests. For certain dates, the owner can offer exclusive use of the facilities (swimming pool, tennis court, gym as well as a recently renovated bar / TV / eating area overlooking the pool) for a small additional charge. Should you be interested in a taking both barns for a larger party / family occasion please call the Suffolk Hideaways’ office to discuss.

Surrounding local area

Rose Barn is situated in the gently rolling Suffolk countryside. Besides the fantastic facilities at the Barn if you are looking for an active holiday the golf club in Stoke By Nayland has 2 championship courses to play on. There are also numerous foot paths and walks in the area which is part of the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you fancy cycling in the area you can hire a bike from Outdoor Hire Centre.
The beautiful countryside inspired three famous painters – Gainsborough, Constable and Munnings. You can visit the areas associated with them to explore further the influence that the countryside had on them. Flatford Mill and The Munnings Museum are located within Dedham Vale and Gainsborough’s House is in Sudbury.
Further afield there are a number of fun days out for younger visitors. Jimmy’s Farm at Wherstead just outside Ipswich hosts a working farm where you can meet and greet the animals along with a wildlife park and adventure play area. If you fancy experiencing a bit of history head to Kentwell Hall, Long Melford where you can head back to Tudor times to find out what it was like living and working on a large estate.
The area has so much to offer but at the end of a busy day you can head back to the peace and quiet at Rose Barn. Either cozy up in front of the fire or relax by the pool. If you don’t want to cook for yourselves then head to The Crown in Bildeston or The Crown at Stoke By Nayland for a wonderful choice of food with an emphasis on local produce.

Guest reviews

We have had amazing 9 days away in Rose Barn. The barn is beautiful big and spacious. The beds are very comfortable and the new shower room is perfect. Everything is to a high standard, we felt so relaxed and looking forward to our return visit in March. Thank you so much Nigel and Claire for your kindness.

The barn was absolutely stunning and the associated outside space, gardens and facilities were excellent. The hosts were very welcoming and any maintenance items were dealt with efficiently by a delightful gentleman who was also a great source of information about the surrounding area. If we had a criticism, we felt the kitchen and shower room would both benefit from an upgrade/redesign. However we had a great week in the barn and would happily recommend it to friends. We really enjoyed the local area too.

We've had a splendid week enjoying both the countryside and Rose Barn. We found we loved using the tennis court, after decades of not playing, and slept well in the very comfortable bed. Thank you.
