Beautiful house in a lovely setting and in a really handy spot for all the shops,bars and beach. The house is nice and peaceful, the room itself is decorated to a very high standard and Dinka and Martin are lovely hosts and not at all intrusive. Great breakfast choices and you won't leave hungry in the morning! Recommend this place!

We loved our time at Barley House. Dinka and Martin, who run it, are delightful hosts and put themselves right in the shoes of the guests, so that every need is anticipated and catered for. The decor is beautiful and everything is kept spotlessly. There is a residents' lounge, where you can relax during the day and make yourselves drinks,...

A brilliant B&B that's a stone's throw away from the beach. Dinka and Martin were lovely hosts - it felt like we were visiting family. On arrival, we were greeted by Dinka with tea and cake and she gave us the tour around her home. There's only two rooms so you don't feel like you're sharing with lots of people....

We went to Southwold for a wedding last weekend and stayed at Barley House because it was just round the corner from the venue (The Swan Hotel) and we had heard good reports. Those good reports were not wrong. We were welcomed by Martin and Dinka, and immediately felt at home. Our room had a GENUINE sea view (unlike some...
