“The most wonderful getaway-hideaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

It had been four years since our last visit to Mashay Barn, and it was so good to see that everything was as good as, if not better, than the last time. The level of comfort is excellent and the barn is kept so clean and tidy. Lesley, the owner, extends a very warm welcome, as do her dogs, Monty and Mia. The location is quiet and relaxing, ideal for getting away from it all, yet it's within easy reach of a couple of town centres (Sudbury and Halstead), both with good facilities. It makes a great base for exploring Suffolk and Essex, with John Constable country right on the doorstep, and Framlingham Castle no more than an hour's drive.

We won't wait another four years to make a return visit.

“Everything we wanted for the perfect holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

my husband I spent last week in Lesley's barn. It was wonderful. Everything we needed was supplied even the wall to wall sunshine. We were there to cycle the byways of rural Essex discovering the many delightful villages during our rides.
We would recommend Lesleys barn for those who enjoy peace and quiet country lanes.
We enjoyed our week very much and would recommend it .

“Friendly, Quiet and a Great Location for Touring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Lesley upgraded us to Mashay Barn after we originally booked Mashay Cottage , which was much appreciated. The accommodation is peaceful and comfortable and the surrounding area very scenic. We used it as a base to tour Essex and nearby counties.

“Home from home”

We stayed three days when visiting our daughter and it was the perfect base for us. Comfy, cosy, with everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back again soon.

“A very enjoyable stay at Mashay Barn as it was cosy and homely.”

person found this review helpful

We had original booked to stay at Mashay cottage, but the owner Lesley gave us the opportunity to upgrade to the Barn as it was available at no extra cost. The barn was situated at the rear of the main property (away from the road) and we were welcomed with afternoon tea and a scone. The kitchen was fully equipped and there was a range of DVDs to watch, as well as board games to play in the living room area. Lesley was very accommodating and we had a very enjoyable stay for our anniversary.
