We rented the holiday home for a family weekend with 15 people. We were immediately enthusiastic about the house and its location. Just beautiful! The house and garden were very neat, comfortably furnished and spacious. We appreciate the frequent, clear information in advance including in respect of the Covid measures. In short, we don't have a single negative comment. On the contrary! This is an absolute must stay!

Previous Customer,

This was probably the best property I have rented and was ideal for our group of 9 adults and 7 children aged 5 - 13. We had a wonderful weekend and wish it could have been longer. We visited The Sorrel Horse (only c15 minutes walk away) and the beautifully located Ramsholt Arms on the banks of the River Deben (currently open weekends only). Excellent walks and access to Sutton Hoo. RM

Ms M,

We had a wonderful stay at Vale Farm Barns and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a self catered stay in Suffolk. The barns were so clean, spacious and had lots of games for Children including high chairs and travel cots.

Mr George Y
