Dragonfly is a charming open plan self-catering barn-conversion with a wonderfully light and airy feel. Located in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, this self-catering holiday home is a relaxing retreat only a short distance from Halesworth. Southwold, Bungay and Beccles are within easy reach; Norwich, Ipswich, Gt Yarmouth and Lowestoft are 25-30 miles distant. The Rumburgh Buck pub is a short 5 minute walk away.  Upstairs the bedrooms have an inviting tone with crisp white linen and period features; and the sunlight floods in. The open plan living space is fantastic for relaxing after a day exploring and the double doors by the dining table really bring the outside in. However, the champion of this property is the outside space; although situated in the homeowners’ grounds, Dragonfly has a delightfully private garden with one area laid to lawn, a gravelled area with cosy bench, open cart lodge with outdoor seating area and wood burning stove,  a large natural pond and a paved area with garden furniture.

Just a great, slightly quirky property, was perfect for a family get-away. The outside covered area was a real bonus, was the perfect place to sit out with the log burner in the evening. The owners were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. The excellent pub just a few hundred metres away was also useful when we didnt want to cook.

Mr W,

Lovely cottage in beautiful tranquil grounds. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. Great pub only a short walk away.

Mrs C,

The kitchen area needs an update which I think the owner knows about but saying that everything works perfectly. The quiet peaceful location is a perfect base for days out, full sun patio area and undercover sitting area with log burner for the cooler evenings, large private garden, pub 5 minutes walk away serving good quality pub food with really friendly staff. Evelyn the owner a lovely lady always on hand for any problem's or suggestions where to visit but not over intrusive.

Mr T,

Lovely cottage in a very quiet setting with ducks, pheasants and squirrels in the grounds and around the ponds. Excellent pub just 8 minutes stroll away serving fabulous home cooked meals.

A cute “full of character” place! Owners very friendly & helpful. Beds extremely comfy! A great location, converted barn on owners’ property, ideal for exploring coastal Suffolk towns. Barn was equipped enough to stay comfortably. Only downside was no WiFi as it did not work at all. Relied on 4G - as routers did not reach from owners property. Owners aware now though so hopefully won’t be a problem for long!
