Stour Barn; a luxury, Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottage in Suffolk with huge Private Hot Tub. Part of our private collection. You enter into a farmhouse style lounge/ kitchen/ diner with a pretty antique pine dining table next to the rear stable door so that in fine weather you can open up the door for a lovely airy start to the day on your luxury cottage holiday.
Outside your holiday cottage in Suffolk you have a small, fully enclosed private garden laid partly to lawn, with a fabulous ‘indoor outdoor’ room with huge luxury Hot Tub as well as a patio with BBQ and table and chairs for Al Fresco dining.
The fully equipped kitchen is well laid out with ample work surface, a fitted cooker with ceramic hob, belfast sink, microwave and fridge, kettle and four slice toaster
The main living area is spacious with a squishy, luxurious comfy sofa and lovely log burning fire, TV/DVD/CD player and iPod docking station.
It has high vaulted ceilings throughout, with huge, exposed oak beams and just oozes rustic charm. The living area leads through to a ground floor bedroom with a black iron ‘bedknobs and broomsticks’ style double bed (please note it doesn’t fly)
There is a well organised en-suite shower room with a good sized powerful fixed rose ‘watering can’ style shower, loo and hand basin with luxury hand soap
Because of the enclosed garden and oak floors we are happy to accept pets in all our luxury holiday barn cottages. We normally accept up to three dogs. We even leave a dog treat as well as a delicious local breakfast basket for the humans!
We also have a huge fully secure two acre meadow for our four-legged guests to run around and play with each other, along with seating for the two-legged guests to chat as well! There’s a smaller section inside for nervous or older dogs to exercise on their own.
Outside you have a fully enclosed private garden with a patio and BBQ with table and chairs for Al Fresco dining
There is ample off road parking.
Stour is a luxury holiday cottage in Suffolk; one of our five holiday cottage barns in the wooded meadow beside The Granary and Woodfarm House. These luxurious barns vary in price according to size, position, equipment etc so represent great value, as well as having something to suit everyones taste and budget!
The Barns nestle into the mature trees around the pond and water feature to create a peaceful little environment to relax in and there is also lovely communal decked area overlooking the pond for when you feel sociable or just want to enjoy the sunset.
The Meadow is down a pretty country lane just outside the little Suffolk village of Stonham Aspal.
There are lovely walks and cycling straight from the Barns and the pretty Suffolk Coast is just 30 minutes away. Bikes are also available FREE of charge!
Each holiday cottage in Suffolk is unique in its decor and we have a choice of ground floor and mezzanine or first floor options. They are all traditional Suffolk barns in style with black weatherboarding, oak trusses and beams and oak or slate flooring.
All our meadow barns are named after nearby Suffolk rivers. The river Stour meanders through from far inland at Sudbury, through stunning ‘Constable Country’, past Dedham, East Bergholt and Manningtree and out to the sea

Thank you Carl and the team for such a great holiday. The cottage, facilities and location are fantastic and so ideal for dogs. The hot tub a real luxury after a day walking the dogs.
The cottage is lovely for a short stay with the dogs. Lots to see and do around the area. Recommend The Crown at Stowupland, and enjoyed Thornham Walks, with a stop off at the Deli Chilli Farm to stock up on goodies!
I had a busy time taking my two legged parents to Walberswick, Southwold, Woodbridge and Aldeburgh. The hot tub was relaxing for them after our long walks, so I could re-charge my batteries for more adventures on the beaches and hide and seek in the meadow with my new friends. Thank you for making me feel so welcome.
Despite the damp weather we still enjoyed the hot tub. Our dog enjoyed the meadow area and meeting other dogs. Look forward to coming back in the near future.
Found Wood Farm Barns to be exactly what it promised and more. Beautiful barn, relaxing hot tub and so many thoughtful touches like the treats for the dogs and all the generosity of the bike shed. It is a rare treat to find somewhere so beautiful where dogs are so welcome. Many thanks.
Our first time and I’m sure we will be back. We enjoyed the Rendlesham Forest UFO trail which was lovely and quiet and we had a lovely walk at Flatford.
Judging by the previous comments we are in the minority, not having dogs! That didn’t stop us enjoying our stay immensely and would recommend and come again.
This is our fifth visit and doesn’t disappoint. Our favourite places to visit include Framlingham, The Four Horseshoes at Eye is excellent and Sizewell Beach is wonderfully peaceful and Dunwich Beach too. Thank you to all the staff.
Loved our little barn – very cosy and everything catered for. The extra touches made all the difference……postcards and stamps!; doggie treats; yummy breakfast basket; excellent dvd selection and the meadow is a real bonus. Southwold is a beautiful and very relaxed seaside town with delicious fish and chips on the pier in the sun!
Yet another wonderful time here at Stour Barn. Our dog loved “Woof Meadow”. We had lovely visits to Needham Lake, Dunwich and the Suffolk Punch Trust – all very dog friendly.
