About Doves Barn

Doves Barn can be hired for the weekend, midweek or the whole week and sleeps up to twenty two guests. Sitting in the beautiful hamlet of Badley in Suffolk, Doves Barn is an ideal country retreat for a relaxing holiday and full of 16th Century Grade II listed charm, perfectly combined with modern conveniences. A haven from which to relax and unwind, guests can escape the pressures of every day life whilst still being within easy driving distance of the pretty villages and historic towns that Suffolk is famed for. Whether you are arranging a reunion of friends, family holiday or want to celebrate a milestone occassion, Doves Barn is a perfect choice and a magical setting.

This picturesque unspoilt area Suffolk is just waiting to be discovered. With its country charm guests can enjoy peace and tranquility where lovely serene rural views compliment the seascapes that Suffolk's glorious coastline has to offer.

Sitting amongst two acres of extensive grounds, Doves Barn is spacious and well-equipped to offer a high level of comfort with the added bonus of a a six seater hot tub as well as a courtyard and two patios for alfresco dining when the sun shines. Wonderful original features such as the vaulted ceiling criss crossed with exposed beams in the living room provide immense charm and the large inglenooks housing wood burners are warm and inviting during the winter months.

Whether you enjoy walking, wildlife spotting or cycling, Doves Barn is a popular choice and easy to access from London by train or car. It is less than a mile away from historic Needham Market which played its part in Suffolk's wool industry; and within easy driving distance of Bury St. Edmunds with its theatre and attractive Abbey with beautiful grounds. Ipswich with its bustling marina, Colchester, and the vibrant historic city of Norwich are also accessible as are the picturesque Suffolk villages of Long Melford, Lavenham and Kersey, as well as the Museum of East Anglia.

Discover the traditional delights and wealth of attractions along the Suffolk Heritage Coastline including: the popular coastal town of Aldeburgh which offers a vast array of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants; the intriguing sleepy village of Dunwich (with its glorious heathland abundant with wildlife); Walberswick, small, secluded and perfectly formed; and Southwold with its lovely pier, famous Adnams Brewery, beach huts, galleries, lighthouse and superb fish and chips!

Whatever the time of the year, Doves Barn provides a warm welcome for you and your party with plenty of things to see and do.
