Barn Owl Retreat is a truly wonderful “get away from it all” place, that includes Wi Fi and any mobile phone signal (Vodafone, BT and Virgin) except at certain points in the house, however the surrounding beautiful countryside and free access to this overly makes up for any loss that you think you may have.

mr G,

An excellent rural retreat finished to a high standard. Ideally located for exploring Suffolk. Views across the meadow were rewarding with sightings of deer, rabbits and hares. The bird feeders in the garden were visited by a family of woodpeckers, green finch, long tailed tits, blue tits, gold finch and blackbirds. A truly relaxing holiday and dog friendly too.

Mr Y,

Lovely place to stay ideally situated for travel to the coast and numerous wildlife reserves.

Mrs B,
