PEACE AND TRANQUILITY. Nestled in the heart of the Suffolk country-side, our accommodation is perfectly located for the long weekend break, a leisurely midweek holiday or a longer stay. Many of our guests comment on the wonderful rural setting as soon as they arrive.
Paddock Barn is a ground floor barn accommodation sleeping 2-4 people. It consists of a bedroom, lounge, kitchen/ dining room and a bathroom. The bedroom has twin beds and there is a double sofa bed in the lounge as well as a sofa and 2 reclining arm chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped and fitted with electric oven, fridge freezer, microwave & washing machine. The bathroom has a walk in shower and there is also further separate WC and wash basin.

Double patio doors open on to a paved area with garden seating and guests can also spend time in a shared grassed garden area to the rear of the barn. Plenty of available parking.
Dogs are welcome but we have to consider the safety of our own animals so any dog visiting must be able to get along with our cats, dogs and horses.
The barn enjoys a very quiet rural location with 17 acres of land encompassing the property and acres of farmland surrounding its boundaries which can be explored on one of the many public footpaths. The local landscape is mostly made up of various arable crops and hop farming is also popular in the area along with the odd field of sheep.
Quiet single track lanes lead to the nearest village of Charsfield about 1.5 miles away where there is a pub, petrol station, church and recreation ground with a tennis court. The nearest shop and post office is located in the village of Otley about 10 minutes drive away or alternatively at Wickham Market also a 10 minute drive where there are shops and amenities including Chinese & Indian restaurants and a fish & chip shop.
The Suffolk Heritage Coast has many lovely towns and villages to visit including Southwold, Aldeburgh and Orford, the later being about 15 miles from the farm. Forest walks are close by in the forests of Tunstall, Rendlesham and Dunwich.

There are lots of meetings during the flat season and during the Summer the race course hosts 'Newmarket Nights' where you can enjoy a concert by famous acts after the racing has finished. Newmarket is also home to the National Horseracing Museum. In the winter you can go racing at Higham, Ampton or Marks Tey point to point courses.

"Peace and quiet"
We had a lovely 4 night stay at paddock barn. Set in the grounds of the owners house in the middle of the Suffolk countryside,the accommodation is very comfortable and spacious. Was also exceptionally clean.
Nice to have a patio and the garden to use as well and some good walks on your doorstep.
Very quiet and peaceful but only 20-30 minute drive to the coast.
An ideal pet friendly getaway.

"Very comfortable, ultra quiet a real gem."
Well appointed accomodation with lots of local amenities. We visited the nearby coast and several superb resturants. Also a central base for our cycling which was excellent.
Lovely place to just sit and read and enjoy the quiet.

"Relaxing ambiance. Countryside setting. friendly owners"
A 3 night stay in a county we love. The barn has all the facilities you need and Clare and Chris, the owners, are on hand should there be any hiccups. Great footpaths for walking the dog.
The interior of the barn has a comfortable feel to it - plenty of space for us two oldies! And we loved the recking/rocking chairs!
It takes concentration on the map to locate Kiln Farm (unless you are a sat nav user) but the wriggly rural roads you use to reach your destination are a pleasure to drive along.
The highlight for us was seeing a lively young brown hare gambling along the road when we were driving (slowly) out of the drive very early on the Sunday morning on our way to the start of my husband's cycling sport if at Framlingham.
We are thinking of coming back - perhaps with another couple who could book Owls Nest.
