Description

The ultimate rural retreat… this beautiful barn conversion ticks all the boxes, perfect for a family holiday in Suffolk with the dogs and kids.

Sitting on a small hilltop, The Granary has lovely views over the rooftops, countryside and woodland. This beautiful self catering holiday home has undergone recent refurbishment and provides excellent accommodation for four guests in two bedrooms. Interiors are stylish, finished to a very high standard offering comfortable, easy living with beamed ceilings and cottage style furnishings. Outside there’s a lovely lawned garden with a swing, a loggia terrace area for alfresco dining and plenty of parking.

Get out and about and explore the excellent network of footpaths around the cottage. The nearby Woodland Trust area Pound Farm is a wonderful mix of woodland, orchard, grassy races, wildflower meadows and ponds - all 250 or so acres of it fenced - great for dog walking. It’s just a short drive (of a couple of hours’ walk) to Framlingham, a fascinating market town with an impressive 12th-century curtain-walled castle, which still dominates the town. Be sure to stop off for lunch or dinner too, there are some excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants in the town. Alternatively, head to Southwold for a day on the beach, stroll along the prom and enjoy some of the best fish and chips!

Framlingham 4 miles, Woodbridge 10 miles, Aldeburgh 9 miles, Orford 12 miles, Southwold 18 miles.

Reviews

Suffolk Cottage Holidays is a very efficient company and very pleasant to deal with. The Granary at Great Glemham is a delightful property a mile outside a lovely village with a great pub. It is beautifully furnished and maintained, and has a very sunny garden (when the sun does shine). The main bedroom is luxurious and there are great views from the comfortable sofa that is in it.
