Alde Barn – the finer details

You enter this holiday cottage in Suffolk into a farmhouse style kitchen with a pretty antique farm table next to the stable door entrance so that in fine weather you can open up the door for a lovely airy start to the day and round to your ‘Indoor, Outdoor Garden Room’ with your very own private luxury Hot Tub.

The fully equipped kitchen is well laid out with ample work surface, a kitchen Range cooker, Belfast sink, microwave and fridge. As the premium meadow barn, Alde also has a superb Nespresso coffee machine and coffee capsules.

Outside this holiday cottage in Suffolk you have a large, fully enclosed private garden laid mainly to lawn, with the fabulous ‘indoor outdoor’ room as we’ve said, with your luxury Hot Tub, as well as a patio with BBQ and table and chairs for Al Fresco dining.

The kitchen area of your luxury holiday cottage in Suffolk leads through to an intimate living area with a comfy, squishy sofa, lovely log burning fire and smart TV.

The luxurious main room has a very high vaulted ceilings with huge, exposed oak beams and a winding hand-made timber staircase that leads up to a charming mezzanine bedroom with a gorgeous old solid wood double sleigh bed

There is a well organised shower room on the ground floor 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 barn cottages. We normally accept up to 3 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 your luxury holiday cottage in Suffolk you have a large enclosed private garden laid mainly to lawn, with a patio and BBQ with table and chairs for Al Fresco dining

There is ample off road parking.

Alde is 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 everyone’s 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!

All our meadow barns are named after nearby Suffolk rivers. The river Alde winds its way through from the sea, inland at nearby Aldeburgh, which is a really popular destination for so many of our holiday cottage guests.
