Enjoy a relaxing and restful stay in the beautifully converted Little Barn, located in the lovely Suffolk countryside, on the Shotley Peninsula near Ipswich. Close to the rivers Orwell and Stour, and surrounded by a multitude of splendid walking opportunities, this delightful, restored barn is in the grounds of one of the best restaurants in the area, owned and run by a Michelin starred chef. What could be better than stepping out of your door for something delicious to eat or a relaxing drink?
This stylish, self-contained, open-plan barn has been tastefully furnished and fitted out to the highest standard. There is a kingsize bed making sleeping a dream, a luxurious walk-in shower room and a wonderfully spacious living area with sofa bed. There is also a dining area with a modern fully appointed kitchen, with a fridge well stocked with breakfast ingredients for your stay.
The Shotley Peninsula has an abundance of walks in both the countryside and along the river, as well as two marinas at Woolverstone and Shotley. Pin Mill, just half a mile away, lies within the Suffolk Coast and heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is a designated conservation area. From Shotley Marina, which is just 4 miles away, you can jump on the foot ferry to either Harwich or Felixstowe, this is run between April to October, weather permitting. Whilst at Shotley Marina you can pop into the Ganges Museum which is dedicated to the 160,000 boys who passed through the gates and climbed the mast, as featured on Blue Peter when John Noakes attempted the climb. There are many artefacts to be seen.
Whilst in the area pay a visit to Ewarton Church and Hall, where legend has it Anne Boleyn’s heart is buried. Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk, is only 6 miles away. Here you will find lots of shops, theatres, museums, the beautiful Christchurch Park, mansion and lake. A visit to see Hilly Ridge Alpacas is a delight, and the famous Jimmy’s Farm and Wildlife Park is nearby.
In less than an hour you can be at the beautiful Suffolk Coast. Aldeburgh has an array of independent shops and is close to Thorpeness, which was built as a holiday resort by J. M. Barrie, the author of ’Peter Pan’, and where you can hire rowing boats, kayaks, dinghies, punts and sailing boats on the 40-acre mere.
The popular Pleasurewood Hills family theme park is worth a day out and is only 1½ hours’ drive away. All in all, The Little Barn and the surrounding area offers something for everyone, and if you have a special occasion the owners are more than happy to arrange champagne, wine or flowers.
