Deben Barn finer details

You enter Deben Barn into a spacious farmhouse style kitchen/ lounge/ diner with a comfy, squishy sofa and pretty antique pine 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.The fully equipped kitchen in this luxury holiday cottage is well laid out with ample work surface, a kitchen range cooker, belfast sink, microwave and fridge, kettle, four slice toaster etc.

The room has a high vaulted ceiling with impressive oak beams and trusses giving it a spacious atmosphere which is beautifully lit up in the evening by the log burning fire. A nice squishy sofa sits next to the back stable door.

Like all the cottages at Woodfarm Barns there is a smart TV and bicycles are provided.

The living area leads through to a cosy en-suite bedroom with a quirky antique painted brass double bed and high vaulted and beamed ceiling, the bathroom has a good sized powerful shower with ‘watering can’ style rose, 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.

Hot-Tub Luxury in Suffolk

Outside you have a good-sized private garden laid mainly to lawn, with a patio and BBQ with table and chairs for al fresco dining. The great feature of this barn is that you also have a luxurious four-person hot tub! Our ‘Elite Luxury Spa’ features 30 jets, one lounger and three further seats, air controls, illuminated pillows and controls, with colour-changing lights all around you. You have ample privacy screening around you so you can enjoy the ultimate in countryside relaxation

There is ample off-road parking.

Deben is one of our five luxury 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!

All our holiday cottage barns are unique in their 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.

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 a 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

Named after the River Deben which winds its way through, aptly from nearby Debenham all the way to the ever-popular Woodbridge and then on to the sea.

More reasons to stay at Deben Barn

Named after another Suffolk river that meanders through the Suffolk countryside from the south through to mid and north Suffolk, Deben Barn offers a coach house style Barn with a log burning fire to add to the country, homely feel. Equipped with a double bed and attendant en-suite, Deben Barn boasts a luxurious 30 jet hot tub located in the stunning fully enclosed garden. This 30 jet hot tub offers one lounger and three further seats as well as advanced air controls, colour changing lights, and a complete privacy screen wrapped around the tub. With a stunning Barn and a hot tub with that many features, why not come and join us at Deben Barn for a short break?

Hot tubs and pain relief – A benefit of hot tubs is that it enables them to relieve pain from past injuries, and they can also help with problems like arthritis and chronic pain. This has to do with the way that hot tubs circulate warm water around the body which enables muscles to loosen up muscles whilst at the same time increasing the blood flow around the body.

I’m a mini yorkie and I’ve had the best time! My humans brought me here for a short break and I love it. Great dog treats, but I did enjoy sampling the bacon from the breakfast basket too! An extra thank you for ensuring the garden was very secure, I felt safe here. We went to doodle dogs shopping. I can’t wait to come here again with my human friends as I had a “pawtastic” time!

With 5 dogs it can be hard to relax, even on holiday, but it’s easy here


There’s nothing that hasn’t been considered in making this a great place for dogs and owners.  With 5 dogs it can be hard to relax, even on holiday, but it’s easy here – secure garden, hot dog wash, tasty dog treats and a dog walk field!  I came here to hide from the world, so didn’t go out much exploring the local area.
