“Lovely location for the Suffolk skies”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The Grain Store is a very comfortable, well-converted and quiet location from which to explore the Suffolk coast. Although you will need a car or bike, there are plenty of quiet walks along footpaths in every direction. It is in a lovely setting among the wheat fields from which to view the big Suffolk skies and stars at night, and the Butts are very welcoming in allowing guests to spend time in their large gardens and grounds. The conversion has some low ceilings, which might affect very tall people, and although there is a bath there is no fitted shower, but the place is very well equipped.

“A blissful week in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Grain Store. There was just the right amount of room for us - a Mum, Dad, 3yo and 10month old. The property was spotlessly clean, and contained everything we could possibly need. The washing machine and drying racks came in very useful; and the kitchen contained everything needed to whip up a meal for hungry kids. Everything provided was also of excellent quality, lovely bed linen and towels.
The garden is beautiful and my son had a whale of a time running round and exploring. Mark and Sarah even had a giant teepee up which we used for playing pirates...
The area is so peaceful and relaxing, and conveniently only a short drive to Southwold, numerous National Trust and English Heritage properties, Africa Alive and lots of lovely beaches.

“A perfect spot and faultless accommodation”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is the second time we've stayed at The Grain Store and will definitely be going back, it's so lovely.

The owners, Mark and Sarah, are so helpful - great attention to detail and customer care, but never 'in your face'. The accommodation is lovely - a perfect barn renovation. Modern, comfortable, spotlessly clean and lots of lovely extra touches that make it stand out. Their home-made honey is lovely! If the weather is ever out of sorts, there are plenty of books and dvds to sit back and enjoy. The location is beautiful - very peaceful yet so close to so many lovely spots - Southwold, Walberswick, Henham Park - plenty to see and do. There's plenty of choice of great restaurants in the area and if you want to do any home cooking, everything is to hand in the kitchen (no shortage of cutlery, crockery or pots / pans). The fridge is nice and big, so plenty of room to stock up on food and cold beers and wine (a nice bottle of complimentary wine already in there!).

Thank you again, Mark and Sarah - looking forward to our trip back next year!
