A Countryside Retreat

Published: Wednesday 14th Oct 2015

A group holiday with friends or family couldn’t be simpler when staying at Oasis Barns in All Saints South Elmham. Nestled in peaceful countryside close to the Waveney Broads and market town of Halesworth, these barn conversions have been flawlessly converted into self-catering accommodation suitable for all ages.

Why not gather some friends together and book this countryside retreat?  Oasis Barn can be booked as a whole to accommodate up to twelve guests in four barn conversions with the added benefit of the larger games barn for socialising.

There are lots of places to see and things to do on your holiday to All Saints South Elmham. Visiting St Peter’s Brewery, a popular local brewery just a few minutes’ drive from Oasis Barn is top on the list! Sample of the most popular local ales at St Peter’s Brewery Tours which take place every weekend from Easter until the end of December – you can even bring a bottle back with you!

Keeping in the ‘spirit’ of things, in the opposite direction you’ll discover Valley Farm Vineyards in Wissett who specialise in white, rosé and sparkling wines. If wine is your chosen tipple why not give the vineyard a call to arrange a private tour and take part in a tasting session. You’ll also have the opportunity of buying some of the vineyards wines to take home.

All Saints South Elmham is the perfect setting for cyclists. For an enjoyable six mile cycle ride you can start from All Saints South Elmham to Bungay via Ilketshall St Margaret. For those who were feeling a little more energetic you can follow ‘The Saints Tour’ cycle route known as the ‘Bungay South Loop’ which begins in Bungay to Rumburgh (don’t forget to stop for a quick pint!) then Rumburgh back to Bungay via Homersfield. It’s a total of sixteen miles if you’re up to the challenge!

Shopping trips can be enjoyed in both Halesworth and Bungay. Bungay is well known for its historic attraction such as the ruins of Bigod’s Castle and Buttercross – where the market is held each week. Halesworth is another market town with a wealth of shops and cafes along the Thoroughfare. Halesworth is also home to The Cut – a popular arts centre showcasing music, theatre, exhibitions and much more.

The Rumburgh Buck is the closest pub to Oasis Barns. This popular traditional pub serves food and local ales daily with some music events taking place throughout the year.

After a busy day exploring the Suffolk countryside, return to your beautiful haven at Oasis Barns and relax in your property.
