This newly restored barn at Home Farm provides privacy and tranquillity in the heart of the picturesque village of Sudborough. A real home from home, the whole building to yourself.
Completely restored and redecorated to a very high standard, the accommodation includes an entrance hall leading to a double bedroom, shower room with wood panelling, breakfast room with vaulted ceiling and stable door, with facilities for making tea, and coffee, etc. leading up to a spacious lounge with sofa-bed, additional single bed, television and DVD player.
Adjoining the barn is a lockable storage room, ideal for housing bikes, motorbikes and fishing equipment. There is a private parking area behind gates. The barn overlooks the large landscaped garden with an ornamental fish pond and natural well, backing onto a field, guests can enjoy full use of the seating areas in the garden, although young children would need to be strictly supervised, because of the pond and well.
The accommodation includes a self-service continental breakfast, and complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits.
Please note that the barn does not have wheelchair access, since it is split level.
