Orwell Barn finer details
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 kitchen area leads through to a spacious living area with a comfy sofa, lovely log burning fire and smart TV.
The main room of your luxury holiday cottage has a very high vaulted ceiling with huge, exposed oak beams and a winding hand-made timber staircase that leads up to a charming mezzanine bedroom with a lovely painted double wooden sleigh bed. The view from the mezzanine provides you with a stunning vista of the landscaped gardens and waterfall.
There is a well organised luxurious 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, as well as a heated towel rail.
Because of the enclosed garden and oak floors we are happy to accept pets in all our 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.
Hot Tub Luxury!
Outside you have a fully enclosed private garden laid mainly to lawn, with a fabulous ‘indoor outdoor’ room with luxury Hot Tub, opening up onto a patio with BBQ and table and chairs for Al Fresco dining
There is ample off-road parking.
Orwell is one of our five luxury holiday cottage barns in the wooded meadow beside The Granary, Woodfarm House and Meadow View Cottage. It is the right-hand side of the large barn next to Gipping Barn. 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! If you are looking for a holiday cottage in Suffolk with a hot tub then look no further.
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 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.
All our meadow barns are named after nearby Suffolk rivers. The river Orwell winds its way through from the cosmopolitan marina to the heritage coast, along a beautiful stretch of river with some wonderful walks. And yes it’s where writer Eric Arthur Blair took his pen name George Orwell from.

More reasons to stay at Orwell Barn
The River Orwell runs from the North Sea coastline, through the vibrant, county town of Ipswich, and then becomes the River Gipping. Named after such a striking geographical feature, Orwell Barn is a beautiful Barn that sleeps two with a mezzanine bedroom, oak décor throughout, and is navigated via hand-made wooden stairs. Within its fully enclosed garden, you will find the ‘indoor-outdoor’ room which houses a large and modern hot tub. Perfect for relaxing and spending time in warm water, no matter what the weather looks like, we would highly recommend Orwell Barn for anyone on the lookout for lodges with hot tubs. What’s more, Orwell Barn has Suffolk written over it – from its name to the interior and exterior styling of the Barn.
Fun Fact – Hot tubs aren’t new. Many centuries ago, hot tubs were created by using hot stones to raise the temperature of tubs to bring them to an ideal temperature for people to relax in. Of course, the ones you’ll find in our Barns for rent are a little more advanced than these, with all of their advanced controls and modern lighting!
Orwell Barn Reviews
Our fifth visit to the Barns – a different one each time! Quick visit to Cheese Farm, Alder Carr Farm Shop, Hog and Hen for supplies then relaxed for the weekend.
We had a great weekend full of wine and cheese alongside a very rainy trip to Woodbridge and a beautiful meal in the Crown.
Our second time to Orwell Barn. We love it here – perfect with a capital “P”. Its like home from home but much more chillaxing!
The perfect weekend – we love it here.
A gorgeous birthday treat! Thank you so much for the perfect escape. Can’t wait to come back!
Came to celebrate our anniversary and couldn’t ask for anything better! Such a lovely place, friendly people and area.
Our second visit – so relaxing and peaceful. We recommend Honey & Harvey and dog walks at Rendlesham Forest and Sutton Heath
Perfect way to start the year. All excellent!
We love it here this being our 4th stay. Great morning and evening walks in the Field and afternoon at Hoppit Wood.
We booked late and very happy with our stay. It was peaceful and plenty to do.
My lovely girlfriend booked us a break for my birthday and I couldn’t have been happier! Stunning place to come and relax and unwind.
Yet again another wonderful stay at Orwell Barn. Bailey loved the field again and the yummy treats. The food hamper was lovely too!
Amazing stay in a fabulous barn, which is a home from home. The hot tub is wonderful especially after a long day walking. Amazing walk from the Eels Foot, through Minsmere. Spectacular scenery around Constable country.
Perfect stay in Orwell Barn – we have loved every minute. We have enjoyed the walks from the doorstep. The games, books, dog treats and the meadow were used and enjoyed. We have eaten at The Four Horseshoes where they even treated the dogs to some food, The Dog at Grundisburgh – amazing food, and the Butt & Oyster at Pin Mill.
Wonderful stay in the most amazing place. Desperately don’t want to go home!
– an amazing place!
We spent most nights having BBQ’s and in the hot tub which was a nice little touch to our stay. The cottage was cosy and comfortable and we had everything we needed.
Loved the ambiance of the Barn, the local Church of Crowfield was lovely. It was a great base for exploring Suffolk.
The Barn had everything you could think of and more! The hot tub was a fab way to relax and the end of the day. Thanks for a great stay.

We had a fantastic stay. Thank you for the breakfast basket and the recommendations of where to visit. The Crowfield Rose pub was lovely.
Our first visit to Suffolk and we were not disappointed! The facilities are top notch. Minsmere is well worth a visit, stroll along the beach, across the marshland and a woodland walk to finish. The Victoria in Earl Soham was a great find with fantastic Victoria bitter.
Great walk at Thorpeness and afterwards the Dolphin pub was great too! Dedham was another great place to visit.
A lovely much needed break. The Barn has everything we needed and we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. We walked from the door to Crowfield Church, and to the Hog & Hen Farm shop and enjoyed venturing to Harvey & Honey for breakfast. Excellent hosts, thank you.
Amazing accommodation and beautiful surroundings. We loved visiting Southwold, Framlingham, Aldeburgh and Kentwell Hall. Suffolk is just stunning!
Fantastic week here, one of the best accommodations we’ve stayed in with our dogs. The shower station and shampoo for dogs is great and we made the most of the hot tub after so many days of walking. Food at the Highwayman was delicious and the Grundisburgh Dog. Recommend Southwold for fish and chips and Walberswick a quaint, pretty village.
Perfect stay in Orwell Barn with attention to detail. We walked a lovely circular route to Helmingham Hall Deer Park and through the fields to Hog and Hen Farm Shop. Fantastic walks from the doorstep.
Our first visit after recommendation from a family member. What a treat! Every little thing was thought out. Very lovely break – thank you.
Wow, our first visit to WFB was a genuine delight. Carl & the team, thank you for all the extra special touches to ensure we all felt comfortable and at ease in the midst of this crazy Covid19 pandemic. Fabulous fish and chips in Southwold followed by a paddle and for a dog friendly pub outing with amazing food, you can’t do better thank the Grundisburgh Dog.
Our first visit and it has been a delight. Our dog loved the meadow and her doggy treats and was made to feel welcome as we were. It was exactly the “chill out” weekend which we had planned. A stroll around Framlingham was finished off by sitting outside the Victoria pub watching the old cars driving past, trying to recall the names/models!
The warm weather gave us the perfect excuse to chill and relax with the pooch. We will be back soon.
Our third visit and celebrating a 60th birthday! Spent four days chilling and our dog enjoyed the meadow. We will be back!

Amazing fun weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Bringing the dogs makes the stay even more enjoyable. The hot tub was amazing and breakfast hamper great too! Thank you so much.
What a fantastic 30th Birthday surprise. Thank you so much Carl and the Team. We would recommend Dunwich and the nature reserve. Also Africa Alive and Lowestoft beaches. A lovely walk to the local village pub – Crowfield Rose, which was very friendly and welcoming.

The breakfast basket was another delight, and the produce was mouthwatering – lovely it’s all local. Our few days here short but well-lived!
A beautiful place, and so relaxing. You have really thought of everything!
Wonderful holiday with our 11 month springer spaniel. What really made this place special for us was the meadow. Our dog ran herself silly and gave us opportunities for “recall” training too! We had some great days out to Aldeburgh, Pin Mill, Thornham Walks and Woodbridge.
Thank you for a fantastic break. Dunwich beach was great for walking the dogs, followed by lunch at The Ship. Southwold Beach too, and plenty of dog friendly pubs and café’s. The meadow is great for exercising your dog before and after a car journey!
Thank you for an amazing stay, just what I needed to chillax and unwind. Thorpeness was stunning as was both sides of Woodbridge river walk. Great stay with all wants catered for and loved the biscuits!
A fantastic break, extremely relaxing. The Dog at Grundisburgh is a must, with their suggested dog walk pre or post food! Dunwich Beach is great for a beach walk too.
Wonderful weekend break. The cottage is perfect for a relaxing break.
Have had a great time – ideal for me and the dogs. Harbour Inn at Southwold allows dogs inside – great for wet days.
We have had a wonderful, chilled out time, so relaxing and tranquil. Our puppy enjoyed his first holiday and delighted to be let loose in the amazing meadow!
We have had the most amazing time, relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors! Our favourite has been the beach at Southwold and Aldeburgh. Thank you!

Honey and Harvey’s in Woodbridge is great for breakfast and fast friendly service – loved it!
We had a fantastic week that has left us rested and relaxed. The dogs thoroughly enjoyed the meadow. We had some great days out, at Framlingham Castle, Helmingham Hall and Thornham Walks – all very dog friendly.
What can we say… Absolutely Fabulous. Gipping Barn exceeded our expectations. The breakfast hamper and added extras was a treat for us all. The secluded garden for our dogs was perfect and the hot tub for us was fantastic. A lovely trip to Southwold, walking up the prom passing all the colourful beach huts. We would recommend the Grundisburgh Dog, for lovely food and doggie treats too!
What a fantastic place you have here. Very clean and comfortable. Had a great takeaway from Zeera with delivery to the cottage. Great days out at Southwold, Bressingham – worth a trip on Steams Days and lovely gardens. Another must is Alder Carr Farm shop. Thanks again.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Such a beautiful place to rest and relax. We recommend the Dog pub with fantastic food and really dog friendly with a great atmosphere. Our dog had a great time meeting up with other dogs in the meadow. Thank you for providing the perfect setting for a relaxing break.
Great little break away. Everything tip-top!
Thank you ever so much for a lovely week away. We love the cosy barn, the fantastic breakfast hamper. Although the weather disappointing, the log burner more than made up for it!
Had a lovely stay here, relaxing, dog walking, hot tub. Thanks for everything, it’s been lovely.
We have very much enjoyed our stay at Orwell Barn, booking this barn as a special birthday gift. It has certainly lived up to our expectations. We enjoyed eating out at the Crown at Stowupland.
