Five Acre Barn is a contemporary bed and breakfast/ holiday rental with a nineteenth century barn at its core. Five guest suites are set in a cedar shingle extension each room with a bright, Scandi feel - all en suite of course. Based in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Suffolk Coast we provide a calm, relaxing base from which to explore this beautiful part of the UK. With so many walks on our door step we are of course dog friendly.

We only stayed for one night, and really regretted it - wish we could have stayed for much, much longer! We received a wonderful welcome from the owners, and their beautiful dogs, with tea and a lemon drizzle cake to die for, before being shown to our room. It was even more

I have to honestly say this is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Owners Bruce and David have designed and created a beautiful space that more than earns it's place in the Royal Institute of British Architect's (RIBA) National 2018 Award. This place is stylish yet

Recently stayed here with friends and was blown away by how good it was. The lounge/kitchen area is fantastic for groups. Would not hesitate to recommend or go back. For anyone looking to escape London for a rural retreat, this is the ideal location.

Thanks for such a great review - especially in light of the cold showers. We are so sorry about the lack of hot water - you really should have said. We have had some problems of late with the water after the engineers changed the settings on our heating (which in theory has sufficient capacity for a place twice the size of Five Acre Barn) but after several call outs, we had assumed that it had been resolved and will get to it to sort it out.

David and Bruce rented the whole place to us for our daughter's 30th. Everything is provided an incredible honesty bar (thank you) as much firewood and kindling as you need. This place has style (Suffolk has time travelled about 2 centuries since I grew up here) great walks,

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thanks for giving us such a kind generous review. Dropping things off in London was absolutely no problem! We look forward to seeing you all again - perhaps in the summer next time with a little more daylight and sunshine!

"All the rooms are dreamy, but for a bigger experience take Room 5. Especially if you want to have a bath overlooking the gardens ;-)"
"I think all the rooms have a similar spec, all are filled with light and have decks onto the garden."
"Garden Room is the most spacious and has lovely views of the... garden!"
"Best room is room five. Lots of doors n windows in room five. The others were all hot even with fans but the weather was very warm"
"Any but 1 is the best equipped and most spacious. We stayed in 5"
