An idyllic retreat for two in the heart of the rolling Suffolk countryside, Buttermilk Barn truly offers a unique self-catering stay for couples.

This romantic abode has been tastefully transformed to create an open plan, studio-style, property and is filled with characterful, rustic features and stylish furnishings. The accommodation comprises of an open plan living space with three neatly separated areas with a dedicated zone for the kitchen, dining area and sitting room. The bedroom is separated by characterful exposed beams making it feel separate from the rest of the property and yet still open plan to the main living area. An ensuite shower room leads off the bedroom with walk-in shower. Buttermilk Barn has its own garden area which is a real suntrap and the perfect spot to listen to the beautiful bird song. The garden benefits from a patio area and use of a charcoal barbeque is available for dining alfresco in the evening sunshine.

Nestled amidst the beautiful Suffolk countryside, this rural retreat is ideal for those who enjoy walking, birdwatching, and cycling. Buttermilk Barn benefits from a relaxing and quiet location and yet it is just an easy drive from the likes of the historic market town of Framlingham and the popular coastal locations of Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich and Aldeburgh if you fancy a day at the seaside.

We really enjoyed our time here. Everything was perfect and once you see a pheasant watching you at the other side of the window, the Freeview loses all appeal. Suffolk has been a revelation. We leave with plenty of good memories.

Past Customer,

Buttermilk Barn is Simply Wonderful!! Beautifully decorated, lovely finishing touches, very cosy & comfortable. Everything you could possibly want from a holiday cottage was provided. Great location to visit lots of places of interest, including the suffolk coast. The hosts were very attentive & friendly. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

Mrs A,

A lovely property that is well equipped and within easy reach of local towns. We received a warm welcome to this peaceful retreat.

Mrs C,

We had a fabulous week at Buttermilk Barn. The rural location proved a little tricky to find initially but, once we were in, the quiet and tranquil setting was perfect for a truly relaxing week! All the main places of interest are within easy reach and the drive to the coast is easy, on quiet roads passing through picture postcard villages. Southwold, Walberswick, Snape Maltings and Aldeburgh all well worth a visit but the highlight for us was Thorpeness, a real gem and still relatively unknown. The accommodation itself is beautifully finished with lots of home comforts, lovely finishing touches and all the mod cons you need, set in the fabulous gardens of Carl and Alison's home. We had all the privacy we needed but, at the same time, our hosts were just a few seconds away when we needed them. Their 'can do' attitude, particularly when we found ourselves in a dinner predicament, really made the week for us. If you're after a true get away from it all holiday, with the chance to sample some truly stunning British countryside, we can't recommend Buttermilk Barn enough and will definitely be back in the future.

Mr H,

Buttermilk Barn is delightful - exceptionally clean, well appointed, with access to beautiful gardens and the friendly hosts only wanted to ensure we enjoyed our stay! We would certainly recommend this property.

Mrs P,

We were delighted with our stay at Buttermilk Barn. The location is idyllic and the garden absolutely beautiful. Our hosts were welcoming and even invited us out on a walk in the surrounding countryside. The barn itself is stylish & wonderfully appointed with everything you need for a lovely stay. We really didn't want to leave and hope to return again.

Mrs H,
