Sewell Barn is on the Broxtead Estate in Suffolk, one of three barns surrounded by a communal lawn, grassland and woodland. Interiors are stylish and contemporary with exposed vaulted beamed ceilings, comfortable sitting room and a free-standing bath. Guests have use of the Suffolk barns with table tennis area and bike storage. This beautiful barn is set in 3,000 acres of meadows, forests and ancient heathand, an area rarely visited by the public so you can ramble to your heart's content. Much of the estate (around 2,000 acres) is managed for the rare heathland flora and fauna, and the Suffolk Wildlife Trust has reintroduced sheep to the heathland to maintain the perfect breeding ground for rare birds such as nightjar and woodlark. Look out for the silver studded blue butterfly, and if you’re lucky you may even hear the nightingales sing.

Beautiful property amid trees and farmland. The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable and the heating efficient. The skylight in the bedroom meant early mornings for me, but that suits me fine. Saw a variety of wildlife from the patio, including hares.
