A luxury, dog-friendly holiday cottage in the heart of Suffolk, Alde Barn is self-catering and features a romantic outdoor hot tub for ultimate relaxation.
Inside Alde Barn, you'll find a farmhouse style kitchen accommodating ample surfaces, a range cooker, Belfast sink, microwave and fridge. This is our premium meadow barn, so you also get the benefit of a superb Nespresso coffee machine and pods.
Walk through to the living area to find an intimate lounge with comfy sofa in front of a log burning fire, as well as a TV/DVD/CD player and iPod docking station.
Also on the ground floor is a well-organised shower room with a powerful, fixed rose ‘watering can’ style shower, a toilet and a hand basin with luxury hand soap.
The winding, hand-made, timber staircase leads up to a charming mezzanine bedroom with a gorgeous, old, solid wood double sleigh bed.
Outside, you'll find your private hot tub, seating area, and a fully enclosed garden which is beneficial for privacy and for those who are bringing dogs. We also have a fully secure meadow for exercising your dogs, which is nearby the cottage.
