Alexandra Barn is an exceptional property - beautifully designed, maintained and equipped. We loved our time there and would highly recommend it.

Mrs K,

well presented property. large gardens with good potential for sports. excellent boules facility-great for family fun competitions. Comfortable beds and large showers. One bath if required.

Mr H,

A large comfortable house in peaceful surroundings with plenty of grounds for the children to run around. It was well kitted out to accommodat ten people and did so with ease.

Mr D,

A beautiful property in a tranquil countryside setting. Easy access to Suffolk coastline. The property had everything we needed and more. Evenings playing boules as the sunset was a highlight!

Mrs S,
