Buffs Old Barn is an old timber-framed Grade 2 Listed building, sensitively converted to a very high standard in complete sympathy with this centuries-old structure and yet providing all the modern comforts and conveniences, including central heating radiators, underfloor heating and Wi-Fi.
Located down a little lane on the edge of a small Suffolk village the Barn offers real rural peace and quiet. There are views across the countryside and the accommodation design makes Buffs Old Barn a great place for families, couples, or groups of friends to stay in a super location close to the Suffolk Heritage Coast and the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty(AONB). Buffs Old Barn is easy to access from Suffolk's main trunk road, the A12.
There are three doors into the Barn but you will approach along the flagged pathway (there is outside lighting around the Barn) and come into the spacious entrance hall. The downstairs floors are tiled throughout, and the accommodation is on two floors with two bedrooms upstairs, both carpeted and each reached by their own staircase.
Off the entrance hall is the downstairs double bedroom with exposed beams an ensuite wet room provided with a shower stool for the less mobile, thus ensuring this accommodation is flexible for those with particular needs. All the bedrooms' furniture includes a dressing table, chest of drawers, wardrobe, a long mirror, and touch-table lamps on the bedside tables.
The entrance hall leads to a carpeted stairs and a landing off which is a built-in full-length storage cupboard, a shower room and the largest of the two upstairs double-bed bedrooms. This lovely room has country views from the window and is open up to the roof, with exposed beams. This room is large enough for the travel cot, with an extra thick mattress for comfort.
The door from the downstairs hall opens into the main living area, which is light and airy, fully open up to the roof and with a dining area seating up to six at the table. At one side of the room french doors open to an outside enclosed, paved and grassy area secure for pets, whilst at the other side, floor to ceiling glass panels overlook the entrance and car parking area. In the living area there is a triple-seater settee and other comfortable seating, coffee table, a small selection of games and a flatscreen TV with Freeview and DVD player.
Off the living area is the reading room, a 'quiet' room with a 'serious reader' standard lamp, great for reading or embroidery. This room is furnished to include a double sofa bed. A shower room leads off. The reading room can become an additional bedroom with own en-suite facilities (if required).
From the French doors is a lobby off which is a downstairs shower room, and a carpeted stairs leading up to the smaller double bedroom, with the view from the window of Friston Church. This cosy bedroom features some super beams and has a high ceiling open to the roof.
The large table in the dining area will seat up to six. The dining area features exposed beams and downlighters for relaxed gathering together for meals. A highchair is provided if required.
From the dining area a door takes you into the kitchen. This room is well-fitted with storage, cooking and kitchen utensils including electric cooker, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and the usual kitchen paraphernalia. The window at the sink looks out over a paved area with a washing line for use if needed.
Access to Buffs Old Barn is by a short farm track with ample parking and turning space right by the accommodation. There are grass areas to enjoy, for outside games and the barn has its own enclosed private garden area with garden furniture and small fruit trees. The Barn is part of a complex of farm buildings and the farmyard, driveway and surrounding fields continue to be farmed and are therefore not suitable as a playground.
The owners of Buffs Old Barn wish to ensure you have a happy stay and so are keen to be flexible about the use of the outside space and are happy to discuss your requirements.
