Welcome to Ivy Grange Farm Barn

Ts& Cs including cancellation policy:

The Barn at Ivy Grange Farm offers holidays in quiet surroundings in the Suffolk countryside and is a great location for couples, friends and families. We aim to be a “quiet site” after 10pm and are not a party venue for groups wishing to have loud music or alcohol after 10pm. We do not let The Barn to unaccompanied minors (under 18) unless by specific prior arrangement; please contact us to discuss. 
We reserve the right to ask the holidaymaker and their party to leave the property, without refund, should behaviour be considered to be unreasonable.

All bookings are provisional until confirmed in writing by us; the contract will be entered into and become legally binding when we issue the confirmation form to you and will be subject to these Booking Terms & Conditions. You should check the confirmation carefully and notify us immediately of any errors.

Payment: a deposit of 25% of the total cost is payable for bookings made more than 4 weeks before the break; the balance is payable 4 weeks before the start of the break.
