The Barn is open!
Our first guests have arrived and we're very much looking forward to welcoming back more of you over the coming months! Take a look at the photos dotted through the website to get a sense of what we're offering. You'll recognise some familiar pieces from the yurts, set amongst a backdrop of artisan work by our talented local builder. We are very much continuing the ethos and spirit of the yurts, with lots of environmentally friendly additions (solar panels, batteries, electric bikes and car charging) in a building packed with masses of insulation and heated by a combination of underfloor heating (powered by wood pellets) and a lovely wood-burning stove. We've kept the old favourites - campfire, bbqs, the pizza oven and heated woodland showers as well as plenty of opportunities to be outside; Nick has had fun converting the safari kitchen to a covered outdoor eating - hanging out - space. Come and see for yourselves!
The Barn has two double bedrooms (both en-suite), a bedroom with one single bed and a set of bunk beds (with adjacent bathroom with bath) as well as two travel cots; there's a gorgeous large open-plan living/dining/cooking space. For fans of the yurts, the good news is that we have kept one yurt which can be hired exclusively in conjunction with the Barn, during the months of April-September (sleeping 3 and possibly an additional small one).
We're very happy to have had the support of the East Suffolk Council Plan for the Future Grant Scheme, which enabled us to install electric vehicle charging and electric bikes to borrow, as well as a bank of solar pv panels, to ensure a holiday with a minimal carbon footprint!
We owe each and every one of you a huge Thank You for supporting us over the years, we've really enjoyed being the "yurt people" and are looking forward to our new venture (the "funky barn people"?).
Kim and Nick, April 2022
