Vancouver Barn is in the heart of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the Suffolk Coast and the River Deben. Vancouver Barn is one of three mid Victorian farm buildings known as Vale Farm Barns. It started life as a five-bay weather-boarded barn with slate roof and its outward structure remains very similar to its original design. Today the bays are gone, replaced by state of the art kitchen, enormous open plan sitting / dining room and four luxury bedrooms and bathrooms. If you want top quality spacious, comfortable accommodation surrounded by stunning countryside, look no further. 

Surrounding Vale Farm Barns are 3,000 acres of farmland, two thirds of which are farmed in conjunction with the Suffolk Wildlife Trust to ensure the conservation of the rare flora and fauna of one of the few remaining areas of undamaged Sandlings heath. Sheep graze the heathland areas, where the nightjar nests whilst horses and ponies canter around the meadow pastures. Pine belts protect the light sandy fields from erosion. There are secret copses of ancient trees much favoured by deer, four hundred year old orchards. Holiday at Vancouver and you will have access to the tracks and pathways which criss-cross this rare and fascinating landscape. Shop: 5.5 miles Pub: 0.8 miles.

Fantastic place to stay and unwind in the middle of nature, No sirens, no noise just the birds singing and friendly tractor drivers waving at us when they passed us on our many walks in the morning before we went back to the barn for breakfast, We all had a wonderful time at Vancouver Barn and would highly recommend this Beautiful Oasis in Suffolk, Only downside is we had to go back home after our week was over at the barn.
