Description

All the properties at Iken Barns have been converted from a range of former farm buildings (or byres) and now provide a high standard of accommodation. Exposed brickwork and ceiling timbers have been retained to give interest. They are all approached from the central yard but have individual patios and low enclosures. The outlook from the barns is either over farmland towards Tunstall Forest or over the River Alde towards Snape.

Gardeners Den is a charming self-catering holiday cottage located at Iken Barns. Perfect for a couple, the well-presented accommodation provides exceptional space with stunning views over the River Alde. Shop: 2 miles Pub: 2 miles.

Iken is a reputed base of Boudica and the marauding Iceni tribes who made good use of the commanding position on the south side of the Alde Estuary. Later, in 869AD, a Viking sailing fleet destroyed the 7th Century monastery at Iken. In the 19th Century sailing barges used the river to trade corn and coal between Snape, London and the east coast ports. Now, you will see the occasional pleasure boat whilst taking in the highly regarded SSSI wildlife habitat and the stunning estuary scenery. Views span from the 7th Century St Butolphs Church, standing on a promontory of higher ground, to the former maltings at Snape which are now vibrant with the sounds of the famous concert hall.

Reviews

The property has everything you need. It was extremely comfortable and warm. Comfortable bed and pillows ensured a good nights sleep. We love cooking and were really pleased with the well equipped kitchen area. The location of the property is perfect. Literally on the doorstep it the a River Alde, with easy walks to Snape and Snape Maltings. We were not familiar with this area of the country but will definitely return. This is a lovely little property that should not be missed.

Mrs Diana M,

Beautiful location, stunning views.

Mrs Janet G,

“Excellent accommodation. Very comfortable for two people. Well fitted kitchen and spacious lounge and bedroom. But....the location is just superb. Private and tranquil with stunning views over the estuary from the property and the garden. Walk from the garden with easy access to the estuary pathway. Perfect for dog owners. Just superb. Very close to Snape Maltings which proved very handy for coffee and the occasional meal.”
