Given there is not a distinct site for it, I would like to review Swallow Barn here, which is run by the same couple who own Valley Farm B&B, and is on the same site.
We took a rental here in November 2013, our first trip as a three (2 adults and a 3 month old). The location is convenient for day tripping to the Suffolk coast, and there are self-catering supplies to be found a 5 minute drive away. Having a woodburner was lovely, and it was no problem keeping the place nice and toasty. The pool was glorious, and it was so nice to have the use of it, albeit around other bookings. Good facilities, and a nice decor all made for an enjoyable stay.
In terms of previous comments about the owners - we found them to be accommodating and friendly, and as such had no problem at all. Yes there were some forms to sign at the outset that probably could have been left with us to peruse at leisure without a detailed explanation, but it certainly wasn't a problem. Remember - this is not a hotel, accept that you will get character and personality when staying in a B&B / holiday rental!
We would certainly consider returning.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A traditional Suffolk farmhouse with large gardens and indoor heated pool. Valley Farm has one double and one family room, both en-suite. An excellent and varied breakfast menu using much local produce and home made jams from our own fruit. Only a short drive from Southwold and the Suffolk Heritage Coast. Plenty of good pubs and restaurants nearby and an excellent base from which to explore the gentle Suffolk countryside. ... more less
