Description

A very imposing Big House Holiday home created from two adjoining 16th century barns, now completely integrated, on the top of a hill, high above the meadows and woodland surrounding Westleton, Dunwich and the sea. Entering Old Hall Barn, one can immediately see evidence of the fine craftsmanship which went into both the construction and refurbishment of this beautiful building.

This Suffolk Holiday Property:

Old Hall Barn is set in very private landscaped grounds of around an acre with a wonderful new hot tub and sauna and large terrace with table and benches, loungers and parasol. Children will enjoy the garden where there is a large lawn with  climbing frame (suitable for children 3 - 14) with ropes, ladders, slide, swing and tree house and trampoline. There are fantastic views over 75 acres of paddocks and meadows around the barn. There is ample parking in the private drive and outside the cart lodge.

Deer roam the fields while barn owls and marsh harrier wheel overhead.

Accessible by road and rail, Darsham Station is just ten minutes walk from the house. On the East Suffolk line, you can get trains direct from London, Ipswich and Norwich.

Old Hall Barn is in the heart of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to Suffolk's Heritage coast at Dunwich and the world famous RSPB reserve at Minsmere. Halesworth (great for shopping and browsing) and the famous seaside town of Southwold are both close by and with Westleton just down the road there are plenty of lovely pubs and restaurants close by. There is a good country pub in the village and an excellent farm shop, Emmerdale Farm, just a couple of minutes walk down the drive.

Old Hall Barn has magnificent two storey drawing room with large Inglenook fireplace and log burning stove and minstrels gallery with room for the whole party to lounge and relax.  Much of the ground floor has been reconfigured in 2017 to include a top quality and very spacious newly fitted kitchen, perfect for cooking and entertaining a large party and a new second sitting room with TV (including Sky).  Old Hall Barn makes the ideal property for a gathering of friends, or a family reunion. The ground floor twin bedroom works well both for  someone with some mobility limitations (there is a ground floor shower room as well as a guest cloakroom) or for two to four children (there are two put up beds available). All bathrooms have been fully upgraded in the last year.

Reviews

A lovely large and fully equipped property. Facilities were excellent. Really pleased with the property. The hot tub, trampoline and snooker table were a great hit for all the family. Both the adults and the children had a brilliant time. The property was very clean and the bedding and towels spotless.

Miss Diane Burgess,

We hired the Barn for a hen weekend, 10 ladies, and we had a wonderful time. Excellent size property, lovely big table in the dining area and a large very well equipped kitchen. Hot tub was fabulous and we even used the trampoline. Access to the property was easy. All in all a great spacious place and I have already recommended it to quite a few friends. A wonderful find.

Mrs Wendy Stevenson,

Beautiful property in a quiet but very good location, which has very easy access to main road and to lovely coastal locations. A very well equipped property, ideal for family get-togethers.

Mr Christopher Wall,

This is a fantastic house to host a family and friends party. There is plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing in. The location is great for walking, cycling and seeing the sea! If you want water closer to hand then there is always the hut tub in the patio. Spent three nights here and everyone had a great time.

Mrs Elizabeth Gladwell,

A lovely property to create new memories with family and friends
