This larger self catering cottage sleeps 5 is priced the same as our cottages sleeping two. A bargain break for families on a budget, this is a great base to explore Suffolk and relax in rural surroundings.
Scrumpy's Barn is a single storey 3 bed-roomed barn conversion in the grounds of a lovely ex vicarage, sleeping 5 and accepting pets.
There is a double a twin and a single bedroom with plenty of space for travel cots.
The garden overlooks the pretty church (Bells only once per week) and both are perched on the top of the hill over looking the picturesque Brett River Valley. Close to Bildeston and Hadleigh and within easy reach of Ipswich, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds and Colchester.
The conversion is airy, clean with sunny rooms and an excellently well equipped and spacious kitchen.
The bathroom has both a bath and shower attachments.
Scrumpy's is centrally heated and cosy all year round.
There is lots of secure parking space. Sorry, bikes are not provided with this cottage.
There is a private patio garden to the rear of Scrumpy's over looking the river valley and direct access to a lovely footpath with pretty walks along the valley.
There is a tiny hamlet close to the church and the picturesque Suffolk village of Bildeston is about a mile down the valley road.
The Historical Market town of Hadleigh is a 4 minute drive away and has a good selection of proper old fashioned shops and a Co-Op supermarket.
Ipswich (which has all the shops you could want and a main line station) is a 15 minute drive away. Colchester ( also London Main line intercity station) is about 25 mins away.
Well behaved Dogs are always welcome, please refer to this web page All About Bringing Pets for charges and how this cottage may suit your pet.
