We stayed in Old Mill House for a week. It is excellent value for money, situated along with six other properties in the same ownership and management in an idyllic location with grassy banks leading down the Alde Estuary and mudflats. The views have to be seen to be appreciated as I would have been unconvinced by my own description, but they really are delightful, as are the walks along the beach both north to Snape Maltings and east to St Botolphs church.
Emma was more or less always on hand to help out if we needed advice on anything. The other barn conversions look superb, and with a large function room recently added, the complex is already attracting activity groups and the like. There is no doubt that we'll return to Iken sooner rather than later, probably staying in one of the apartments with river frontage.
We can't recommend Iken Barns highly enough.
