About Alde Barn

Alde Barn Cottage sleeps two guests and is one of a collection of exceptionally dog-friendly holiday cottages located at Woodfarm Barns in the Suffolk village of Stonham Aspal. With an immense amount of character and style (including antiques and wood burning fire for cosy nights in), Alde Barn Cottage is a wonderful romantic retreat for couples with hot tub, located in the very heart of Suffolk.

Wide open skies, great pubs, country lanes, picture postcard villages with thatched cottages and rolling countryside criss crossed with footpaths are just a few of the reasons for visiting Suffolk. Under two hours from London, Suffolk provides a perfect holiday destination at any time of the year, whether you are looking for a short break or longer stay.

Offering holiday accommodation of a very high standard, Alde Barn Cottage provides an ideal place to relax and unwind with its character-full interior that oozes quaint country charm.

Locally there are some wonderful country walks to enjoy, along with some great pubs for leisurely lunches, nature reserves for wildlife enthusiasts and local tourist attractions. For water lovers, there are good opportunities for kayaking, sailing and river cruises on the River Orwell and River Stour, along with lovely riverside walks. Alternatively, explore the coastline with its many delights including Aldeburgh, Dunwich, Southwold, Thorpeness, Orford and Snape Maltings to name just a few. A trip to Minsmere RSPB Bird sanctuary is also a must!

Beautifully combining dog-friendly principles with a high level of luxury, there is no need to leave your dog at home or compromise the quality of holiday accommodation - the owner's don’t simply ‘accept’ dogs, they go out of their way to welcome them!
