The area:

The cottage is located close to the Sotterley Estate which holds various local events throughout the year including the pony club meetings and horse trails around the estate. The estate is well known for the snowdrops in the grounds in the spring and is a haven for song birds and other wildlife, supported by the combination of sensitve farming methods, traditional field sports and 400 acres of carefully managed mixed woodland.  

As well as being close to the Suffolk Coast and nearby market town of Beccles, The Granary is also within easy reach of beautiful historic houses like Somerleyton and other National Trust properties, the castles at Bungay and Framlingham, wildlife sancturaries at MinsmereCarlton Marshes and Lopham Fen as well as local farmers markets, farm shops, restaurants and pubs.


The Granary has central heating and WiFi. 

A small basket of logs and kindling is provided on arrival in the winter months (November-March)

Two medium-sized well behaved dogs are welcome at the cottage but should be kept under control whilst walking in the countryside as the cottage is located within the Sotterley Estate where country pursuits take place. We ask that dogs do not go on the furniture. A dog bath and shower is provided on the terrace! 


The Granary Barn is a delightful place to stay within a rural setting. The bedrooms are spacious and well equipped. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen and dining area is modern and has everything you could need. The living area is comfortable with a wide selection of DVDs.

Janet H,

We had a very relaxing holiday and the weather was wonderful. The accommodation was excellent and to a high standard! The Granary is very comfortable, fitted to a very high standard and is conveniently located to local attractions but is still in a quiet and secluded location. We would certainly consider booking it again.

J. J,
