For a peaceful countryside retreat, look no further than Old Forge Barn. Cleverly designed to make the most of its space the cottage has warmth and charm. Situated in the middle of the Suffolk countryside you really do feel in the heart of the village community, whilst still only being a short drive away from the coast. The open plan layout makes the property one you can relax in - the garden too is ideal for al fresco dining within the warmer months. Complete with off-street parking space, what more could you wish for? There is plenty to see in the immediate area, so bring the bikes, pack a picnic and explore this wonderful area of the county.

Why we Love this property: This property truly is the ultimate couples' retreat - it is so cosy and cute! There is a good mix of traditional and contemporary with the exposed wooden beams to the artwork mural in the sitting area. There is something here for everyone.

We've had a marvelous time here and love the Old Forge. What a cosy, comfy and idyllic place to stay. Breakfast in the garden, dinner by the woodburning stove. Lots of walks and wildlife on the doorstep. Sue & Paul - 12th August 2017
Lovely, lovely cottage - so comfortable and everything is here. Great personal touches! So many places to walk and no where crowded! Lynne & Nigel - 29th July 2017

Lovely place. Lovely cottage. Lovely weather. Lovely holiday. Thanks very much.A previous customer - 10th September 2016
I've had a lovely few days in the most perfect location, feels like a hideaway from my normal busy life. The perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunshine in the garden. My walks were made even more pleasant by friendly locals and their dogs! Thank you, I'd love to return one day.A previous customer - 4th August 2016
What a beautiful 'old forge' it is! We had a great stay and enjoyed the tranquility and sunshine.A previous customer - 23rd July 2016
Such a lovely cottage! Great tip-off about Metfield stores - nice cup of coffee and delicious ginger flapjack. Much to our dismay, after a lovely 3.5 hour walk, The Buck (like most other rural pubs) is not open after 3pm! I'm sure we'll be back soon.Kez and Sam - 11th June 2014
