The Granary Barn finer details
You enter The Granary Barn through a stable door into an open lounge/diner with a farmhouse galley kitchen, which also has a door leading to the huge enclosed garden. In the finer weather you can open up the stable door for a lovely airy start to the day. The flooring on the ground floor is beautifully opulent natural slate, with underfloor heating. The fully equipped kitchen is well laid out with ample work surface, fitted cooker with ceramic hob, Belfast sink, microwave and fridge, kettle and four-slice toaster.
The Granary also features a Nespresso coffee machine with coffee capsules, adding that little extra luxurious touch to your holiday cottage.
The living area features an old circular painted dining table, big comfy, squishy sofa and a lovely old armchair, cosy log-burning fire and Smart TV.
The Granary has exposed oak beams throughout and a beautiful, winding, hand-made timber staircase that leads up to the breath-taking bedroom with its triangular oak feature window wall, with stunning views across the farmland opposite. The bedroom has an iron ‘bedknobs & broomsticks’ style double bed (please be aware though that it doesn’t take off!) and handmade chandeliers from a local forge. The iron wall lights throughout are all made by the same forge, designed by us!
There is a well-organised en-suite shower room with a fixed rose ‘watering can’ style shower, loo and hand basin with luxury hand soap.
The Granary Barn has cosy underfloor heating upstairs and downstairs at no extra cost. We can provide logs for your wood-burning fire, which we offer at cost as your holiday cottage is already heated.
Because of our fully enclosed gardens we are happy to welcome dogs in all our luxury holiday Barns. We normally welcome up to three dogs. We even leave dog treats, 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 huge, fully 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 in front of the Granary.
All our luxuriously appointed 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! They are all traditional Suffolk barns in style with black weatherboarding, oak trusses and beams and floorboards or slate flooring. Woodfarm House and Meadow View Cottage are the two halves of our 500-year-old thatched Suffolk farmhouse. Again, both are completely private.
The Granary is very definitely our premier Barn, because of its history and charm; if you’re looking for a truly luxurious holiday cottage in Suffolk then you’ve found it.
The other Barns nestle into the mature trees adjacent to the Granary, 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. Woodfarm House and Meadow View Cottage are opposite The Granary.
The Granary Barn 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, along with free Wifi.
