We booked to stay at Sheepyard Barn before the conversion was completed and it was a leap of faith not really sure what to expect. With a little trepidation our family of 8 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs arrived at the barn on a Friday afternoon at the end of April (May Bank Holiday weekend) to start a long...

We stayed, as a couple, at The Barn for a week long break but with our children and grandchildren over the weekend. The accommodation was spotless with an impressive welcome pack of cake, milk, coffee, eggs, butter and jam. The fresh flowers were an unusual touch. En suite facilities for all bedrooms avoid any arguments and the entire house is...

The log cabin gives you that 'aaah' feeling. Going at this time of year was great as there was so much wildlife to see. Baby geese and ducklings swam past the cabin throughout each day and watching them was such a delight! The feel of being surrounded by wood is so cosy, the views outside also added to the feel...

Just back from a four night stay and there's not too much we can add to the excellent reviews of other guests. I am usually happy to get home after a holiday, but would gladly have stayed for longer in this lovely environment. The ladies do a grand job in making the cabins spotless and Andrew is just charming and...

Hi Carole, A great title and I love the fact you called us that as it is what we are trying to create, being adult only helps us do this at the cabins. Thank you for recognising how clean the place is, the team work so hard to keep it looking spotless. Many of them have been with us for...

Great cabin, very quiet and peaceful and finished to a high specification. Very friendly hosts with great little touches e.g. free cake and pastries. Not five starts as starting to need a little work in places e.g. Hot-tub area/patio a little shabby.

Thank you for your review and giving your feedback...I won't lie though it was heart breaking! For 4 years we have kept our 5/5 score from every single reviewer, which we understand is a record with Trip Advisor in the UK. However and most importantly we jumped onto your feedback and have taken it on board. It is a fair...

Lovely peaceful location in the Suffolk countryside with top of the range log cabins. We visited in April in glorious Spring sunshine but the cabins are so well kitted out you could visit all year round and have an amazing time (the indoor wood burner is great). If you want to get away from the City for a weekend would...

Just back from celebrating my 60th at the Suffolk Escape. We were a party of 7 and so hired two cabins Lavenham and Kersey which worked very well, allowing us to come together for meals etc but also allowed each couple an element of privacy.
