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.

Surrounding local area

?Hadleigh is an ancient market town, it is surrounded by 246 listed buildings and offers plenty of history to explore. Don't forget to visit Tito's Italian restaurant, that serves authentic Italian food.

Set by the River Stour, Dedham is in the heart of Constable Country. The attractive high street is lined with Georgian-fronted houses, old inns and a large Art and Crafts Centre. The magnificent 15th church was built from the wealth of the medieval cloth industry. Constable's work The Ascension can be seen within St Mary's Parish Church.

Kersey is a quintessential English village in the Babergh district of Suffolk with lots of narrow winding roads and beautiful historic properties. Kersey Mill includes a gym, an art gallery, a beauty salon, and a florist. That’s not forgetting The Copper Kettle Tearoom, which serves up a delicious afternoon tea, seven days a week.

Nestled in the heart of the stunning Suffolk countryside, Lavenham is one of Englan's finest medieval wool villages. Medieval charm can be found around every corner with its winding streets, thatched cottages and some 320-listed timber framed buildings. This unique village was created some 750 years ago by Hendry III when he granted Lavenham "market status" which stimulated the most prosperous period in the village's history. Today Lavenham is a thriving village with art galleries, restaurants, cafes, pubs and lots of interesting buildings to visit.

Long Melford
As its name implies, this wool town has a long, long High Street, populated by charming independent shops, vibrant art galleries, antique centres, cafes, restaurants, and, of course, typical Suffolk Inns. So, given all of this combined with beautiful architecture and amazing countryside, it is no wonder that this is such a desirable place.

For a family day out visit Hollow Trees Farm - suitable for all ages, the farm trail is a walk around the fields, down into Pogal Pit and into the Livestock Barn. Along the way you will find Dirty Dave the tractor stuck in the mud, the Rolly Polly pole, Goat Mountain, Mini Tractors and the Welly Game. The farm shop provides excellent local produce and is open 7 days a week.

Guest reviews

What a great stay! Loved the barn and all the days out we had. Thank you.

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.
