Rose Farm Barns presents a wonderful opportunity to spend your Suffolk getaway in a breath-taking barn conversation, nestled in the idyllic village of Middleton. This beautifully renovated semi-detached barn comprises of two separate dwellings that can be booked together - Rose Cottage and Stable Cottage. The holiday homes are situated on the owner’s grounds and surrounded by far-reaching countryside views. Rose Farm Barns are full of charm and the owner has thought of everything to make this a wonderful getaway for four. These two equally stunning holiday hideaways have a shared entrance door and hallway which then leads to the door for each.

Each cottage has been lovingly restored to an exceptionally high standard, providing top quality self-catering accommodation that is all on one level and there is even a curated art exhibition in both barns. This holiday home is brimming with charm and furnished beautifully – you’ll have everything at your fingertips to enjoy a holiday to remember here. The living and kitchen areas in each self-contained cottage are wonderfully modernised, including a Smeg coffee machine and boiling tap, and certainly have your ease of use in mind with their roomy open plan layout; there are even dimmable lights throughout for the perfect mood lighting. A welcoming wood burner is a focal point in each of these hideaways and makes for a perfect year-round getaway whether you’re dreaming of relaxing after long summer days exploring or winter evenings spent cosying up with a hot chocolate. This dreamy barn conversion provides a very serene setting for your stay with its tucked away location, but your privacy is always key and therefore you’ll find shutters throughout meaning your privacy is never compromised. This charming barn conversion also has an ideal outdoor space to enjoy a coffee on those warm summer mornings. Here, you’ll be able to enjoy stunning views across a wild meadow and water meadow.

Rose Farm Barns, which comprises of Rose Cottage and Stable Cottage, is situated on the edge of the rural village of Middleton. Set in a charming countryside location, positioned inland between Aldeburgh and Southwold, you’ll have a network of wonderful walks on your doorstep and not only that, you’ll be just 3.5 miles from the coast and heath at Dunwich. If you’re a keen birdwatcher or want to enjoy the fantastic walks and wildlife at the RSPB Minsmere reserve, then this is also just 3.5 miles away.

The owners have Rare Breed sheep, Borerays, grazing in a field nearby to the cottages at Rose Farm Barn. Guests are asked to be aware of their proximity and must keep their dogs on a lead if going for a walk around the three fields which the two cottages overlook.
