  • Three separate properties with a shared dining space make it ideal for bringing the whole family together
  • Idyllic location with far-reaching views of the Ore Estuary and the Suffolk coast from the raised decking
  • Plenty to do for all ages with large outdoor spaces, games barn, and solar-warmed plunge pool
Property code: OC-SFOXL

Renovated to capture the very best stunning views of the Ore estuary and out to sea, it would be hard to find a more idyllic barn conversion with coastal walks from the doorstep surrounded by a playground of outdoor activities, from bird watching to stargazing and kite surfing to fishing.

Comprised of two cottages linked by a shared garden, there’s plenty of room for families and large groups to retreat to either of the open plan lounge/kitchen/diners in each of the cottages, both featuring a trendy colour palette that creates a peaceful atmosphere beckoning you to whip up a locally sourced feast in the kitchen, make special memories seated around the dining table and unwind walking muscles on the sofa beside the roaring wood burner. When you can’t resist the call of bedtime, you have three bedrooms in Barn Owl and two bedrooms in Little Owl, all accessed up a few steps, to retire to for a well-earned rest before tomorrow’s adventure. French doors in each of the barns lead to a shared garden; dine alfresco on the decking, explore the lawn, enjoy the games room or take a dip in the enclosed, solar-warmed, circular plunge pool.

Situated on the coast between the villages of Orford and Bawdsey, this tucked away spot within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides endless walking country through unspoilt landscapes home to an abundance of wildlife to spot. Skim stones at the remote Shingle Street Beach a mile away or dive into the local history at Orford (11 miles) or Framlingham (19 miles) to discover their historic castles. From Bawdsey (4.5 miles) catch the foot ferry across to Felixstowe (22 miles) to enjoy a traditional bucket and spade day at the seaside and walks along the colourful beach hut-lined promenade.

  • 5 bedrooms – 2 king-size, 6 singles (1 is a trundle single)

The cottage themselves were great however, I chose them because there was a pool. This was meant that I paid more than I would have done for the same number of rooms without a pool. The weather was lovely when we arrived on the Friday and over the weekend but the pool was out of use and remained so all week. Granted, it was not warm enough to swim Read morelater in the week but I was disappointed that I had not got a pool at the start of the holiday have only chosen this particular cottage because there was a pool.

Barn Owl, Little Owl and The Owl Box were ideal for our family of 8 adults, 4 children and 1 baby + 2 dogs. Clean and well equipped, Hosts Chris and Diane were very friendly and helpful. The plunge pool was a challenge for some of our group. We were allowed to hire a hot tub and that was ready for us when we arrived. The weather was brilliant and Read morethe decking outside Barn Owl was our focal point Hide
