This Big House Holiday Property: Perfect for a large family gathering or a group of friends, the barns have been beautifully converted to provide spacious contemporary accommodation for up to 18. Sewell Barn is ideal for grandparents or a couple with a baby who might want the odd few minutes of quiet time away from the family.

Stunning contemporary staircases, state of the art bathrooms and utterly attractive contemporary furnishing and fittings sit comfortable with the old beams and traditional shell of the barns.

Set amidst 3,000 acres of meadows, forests and ancient heathland, you can ramble to your heart's content. Sand tracks and paths take you across the heathland to woods, meadows and traditional farm land. Much of the estate, around 2,000 acres, is managed for the rare heathland flora and fauna; the Suffolk Wildlife Trust have reintroduced sheep to the heaths to maintain the perfect breeding ground for rare heathland birds such as the nightjar and woodlark. Here you might see the silver studded blue butterfly, and hear, if not see, the nightingales singing to their mates in the stillness of a spring night. There are deer everywhere. A rare and fascinating landscape for birdwatchers and naturalists, it is a great area for walking.
And yet you are just a 10 minute drive from the vibrant market town of Woodbridge with its excellent cinema, superb local shops and restaurants and fine restaurants.
Just a couple of miles from the Deben estuary and Sutton Hoo, the coast is also close by. Ideal for those who want to explore a rare and wonderful landscape, walkers, cyclists, horse riders and anyone wishing to learn the art of carriage driving. Nearby National Trust properties include Sutton Hoo, Orford Ness and Dunwich Heath. Close to the sea, you can enjoy boat rides, swimming and sailing. The ancient market town of Woodbridge is nestled on the Deben River, both the waterside area and the town are lovely places to visit.
Eating and Drinking:
There is a nice pub within a 15 minute walk of Vale Farm Barns, The Sorrel Horse in Shottisham (both around a 15-minute walk). Woodbridge has a fantastic selection of coffee shops and restaurants, including Wild Strawberry Cafe, The Tea Hut, Honey & Harvey, The Crown, The Riverside, The Galley and The East Coast Diner - all are very good. There are some great pubs (top of the list is The Angel), many of which sell the local Adnams beer. Many of the shops sell excellent seasonal local produce and of course the fish is fresh every day (you are just a couple of miles from the sea).

Vale Farm Barns is situated in beautiful Suffolk countryside which is made even more special as the owner is a conservationist and has influenced other farmers to join him. The barns are cleverly converted to supply luxury and an ideal venue for a family party.Â We were a family party of 15 very keen on sport. A table tennis table was available as well asÂ barbecues. The provision of darts and croquet in the excellent amount of ground surrounding the barns was perfect for keeping us entertained.Â There was lots to see in the area, Sutton Hoo was very close as was Suffolk Punch Horse Trust. Woodbridge itself is delightful.A previous customer - 8th August 2016

We just wanted to thank Suffolk Cottage Holidays for our fantastic weekend! Vale Farm Barns were fabulous. We'd be extremely grateful if you would pass on our sincere thanks to the owners too.A previous customer - 31st January 2016
We had a great time and the perfect Christmas get together. The space in the large barn was perfect for us all to gather in and the fact each family unit had their own wing was brilliant.Diana W, Suffolk - 29th December 2014
