This grade 2 listed barn has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard and has been awarded a 4 star rating with a gold award from visit England. It is situated in a large enclosed and landscaped courtyard garden which has access to a well equipped games room, surrounded by Suffolk Wildlife Trust's Lackford Lakes Nature reserve which is a birdwatchers paradise. Wildlife is all around, many migratory birds come to Lackford Lakes and from here you can enjoy the sound of owls, nightingales, turtle doves, Canada geese and deer. Here you can really get away from it all yet the beautiful historic town of Bury St Edmunds is only 5 miles away and the racing town of Newmarket is 12 miles away. Ely, Cambridge, Norwich, the suffolk coast and Norfolk coasts are all easily within reach.

"Peaceful and Tranquil"

What a wonderful stay at a beautifully renovated barn in the Suffolk countryside.The photos on the website do not do this place justice. All of the rooms were immaculate and extremely comfortable. the welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, butter and hot cross buns was a lovely touch. The gardens were so pretty and well looked after. It was very quiet and we could totally relax. It was also great to be near the nature reserve. Would recommend this holiday cottage to anyone. The only problem was from the booking website not giving us any details about how to collect the keys. We had to contact them to ask what to do as there were security gates and key codes needed to access the property.

We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry that you had problems accessing the property. We have an access statement for each of the cottages at Lackford Lakes Barns and we are now sending this out routinely when balancing payments are made. Hope you come again! Best wishes, Emma

"Simply Stunning"

This was our second stay at Lackford Lake Barns and infact Curlew Cottage. For a UK break there is simply nowhere better.The lodges are set in a beautifully landscaped courtyard behind electric gates … More

Thank you so much! I think you stayed in Lark Lodge on your first visit and Curlew Cottage on your second visit. I think this review relates to Lark Lodge as it sleeps 6 unlike Curlew Cottage. Which sleeps 4. Lark Lodge has big blue sofas whereas Curlew Cottage has red! They are very similar though (next door to each other ) I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay!
