Christmas Cottage is a beautifully converted traditional Suffolk barn. It retains much of the old stud work and beams and incorporates quality finishes. Warm and cosy in winter, it has underfloor heating and a lovely log burning stove. In Summer, guests can enjoy the sun trap terrace complete with its own hot tub, and the extensive gardens.

Once a traditional two storey cow barn with hayloft above, this red brick Suffolk barn has been beautifully converted to create a comfortable two bedroom holiday cottage. Retaining many of its original studwork posts and beams, the ground floor has 19 century slate floors throughout (reclaimed from The Records Office in Chancery Lane, London). Reclaimed wood has been used to create the straight staircase which leads to the first floor where there are wooden floors throughout, comfortable beds and a spacious shower room.  Locally reclaimed materials have been used for finishes wherever possible and there is a lovely wood burning stove in the sitting room.
