Mrs C,

A really beautiful holiday property - spacious, well-equipped and ideally located for exploring the Suffolk Coast.

Mrs K,

We've had a really lovely time here. Gorgeous house, beautiful garden! Thank you for recommending 'Cafe Bencotto' - we walked all the way there!

Mr Michael E,

Couldn't ask for a cleaner, more cosy place to stay and you made us feel very welcome, thank you.

Mrs Elaine G,

This little "cottage" was like the Tardis in Dr Who. From the outside it didn't look very big BUT when I entered I couldn't stop saying WOW!! I had seen the photos but they did not truly reflect the spaciousness, and although it was very roomy it still had that lovely cosy feeling. The "snug" was my favourite area to sit and read my book and just relax. The standard of inside and out could not be faulted. The owners were so friendly and approachable. They made sure I was comfy and had even left a basket of goodies to welcome me and they also told me to use the garden as if it was my own. I was truly "at home" and it was a shame I had only booked a 3 night stay!! Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Mrs G,

Amazing property in beautiful surroundings. The property was spotlessly clean with everything you could wish for. The owners were extremely kind and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Fresh flowers and a welcome pack was a lovely touch, thank you.

Mrs H,

What a lovely place. Really appreciated all the love and thoughtfulness that made it feel comfortable.

Phil & J,

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely accommodation. Thank you for everything, we will be back.

Lyn & R,

Wonderful apartment. We really appreciated all the thoughtful touches.

Nigel & M,

Anniversary weekend away. Lovely and relaxing. Perfect for walks along beaches.

Sarah and P,

Oak Barn is so comfortable, light and spacious. We have enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning soon.

Carl & C,

In spite of some foul weather we've had a wonderfully relaxing week here, thanks to the care and attention Chris and Pauline the Annexe project. From the initial 'welcome' basket onwards, we've been delighted by the attention to detail - not only inside but also the fantastic setting in a mature, colourful garden (which Chris claims is only a working progress). We need to come back, this place and it's owners are unique Thanks to you both.

Previous Customer,

Wow! What a beautiful house with an amazing view! Spotlessly clean with everything you could need. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will be back!

Previous Customer,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at oak barn annexe. The hosts could not do enough for us and we were made extremely welcome. The annexe itself was spotless throughout and full of special little touches! I would strongly recommend this beautiful setting to family and friends.

Mr T,

We had a lovely relaxing break in the delightful Oak Barn Annexe which was in an idyllic situation. The property was spotlessly clean & we really couldn’t have chosen a better base for exploring Suffolk. Our hosts Chris & Pauline were very helpful & informative & we can certainly recommend the Annexe as the perfect place to stay.

Mrs H,

This is good quality holiday accommodation with everything one would want for a home away from home. Plenty of storage for suitcases, shoes etc in the lobby before you even set foot in the living space. The kitchen has everything you could need for cooking meals after a day out. Lovely bedroom, good quality en-suite and living spaces are very comfortable. The owners are Chris and Pauline and you could not wish to find more helpful or friendly hosts. They have a beautiful garden that guests can use, as well as a very friendly terrier called Jack who gives a warm greeting to new arrivals. We had a great week and I can see us returning at some time on the future. Some very good pubs not too far away as well as supermarkets and petrol all just a 5 minute drive away. Great location, comfortable accommodation and helpful friendly hosts.

Mr N,

Chris and.Pauline looked after us very well indeed. A welcome pack, facilities, info were all first class. This place is a gem. Great area with excellent golf cycling walking and I guess swimming. The nearby train line is barely audible. We highly recommend this place.

Mr C,

Outstanding location and wonderful property with very friendly, helpful and attentive owners. We loved the local walks too.

Dr T,

Oak Barn Annexe is a beautiful and spacious property that is set in a lovely garden. It is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners, Pauline and Chris are welcoming and helpful. It is located in a part of Suffolk that is well worth exploring.

Mrs W,
