Your fully equipped kitchen diner overlooks your private Hot Tub and features an antique pine plate rack and painted dresser. The lounge has a huge high ceiling with oak timbers and a comfy leather sofa opposite the wood burner and your Smart TV.
Your downstairs shower room leads off the lounge and a hand-made wooden staircase winds up to the mezzanine.
Orwell Barn finer details
Your 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 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 fixed rose ‘watering can’ style shower, loo and hand basin with luxury hand soap, as well as a heated towel rail.
Orwell Barn has cosy underfloor heating 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.
Hot-Tub Luxury in Suffolk
Outside you have a fully enclosed private garden, 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.
Gipping is the left-hand side of our large Barn holiday cottage with Orwell and is one of our five-holiday cottage Barns in the wooded meadow beside The Granary, Woodfarm House and Meadowview Cottage. 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.
All our barns are unique in their luxury decor and we have a choice of ground-floor and mezzanine (like this one) or first-floor options. 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.
We are 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.
All our meadow barns are named after nearby Suffolk rivers. The river Orwell winds its way through from the cosmopolitan Ipswich marina to the heritage coast, along a beautiful stretch of river with some wonderful walks. And yes, it is 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 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 handmade 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!
