Description from owner


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.

Very Good

“Excellent and comfortable”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2015

Clean, tidy, spacious and very comfortable. This was a second stay there and we will likely go back again. Conveniently located in lovely settings.

Thank you for your review and for being a returning guest, hope to see you soon!

“A charming oasis.”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2015

I feel very lucky to have found Lark Cottage. Its set in a gorgeous location next to a wildlife sanctuary, yet still really close to all amenities. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable and surprisingly more light and spacious than it looked online - it comfortably accommodated our family of 5. The owner Emma greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcome; it was lovely to find a welcome pack, and lots of toys, board games and reading material. The place was very quiet and peaceful and had a nice outdoor space which would be great for dining outdoors in the summer.Unfortunately we didn't have time to use the games room but if we had stayed longer it would have been a definite hit! All in all, a really lovely cottage for a family and a great base for exploring the surrounding area.

“Great self catering location”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2015

We stayed at the barns as a base for a weeks meeting at our nearby HQ. Great spot with tidy accommodation with everything you would expect. The team enjoyed the log fire and the board games. Many thanks

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the board games and the log fire in Holm Oak! Best wishes to you all

“Beautiful location, lovely cottages in a private area with communal facilities.”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2014

We have stayed in three out of the four cottages and all are unique. Something to suit everyone. There is a separate laundry room and games room, which are a short walk across the quad. The televisions and appliances are quite old and some may need updating. The level of cleanliness was disappointing. With only a minimum done between change overs. The underfloor heating is lovely, but can be a bit difficult to use, we found it was hard to get the perfect constant temperature. The owners are extremely friendly and amenable and it's a nice touch to have some basics like bread and milk waiting for you on arrival. Having a small child is not a problem our son loved it there, especially the wonderful wildlife all around, as the lakes are a short walk away.

“This was a great holiday, in a luxurious cottage in a beautiful setting.”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2014

We had a great holiday. The cottage was very luxurious, and very well appointed, with every convenience. The kitchen was excellent, & television etc state of the art.The whole complex, set in a quadrangle of old farm buildingswas beautiful, with lovingly tended gardens, and there was a games room etc as well. The area was amazinging for people who like the outdoors, as we do: set adjacent to an Suffolk county nature reserve on the river Lark, with lakes and woodland. There is a circular walk round the other side of the river Lark, through a piece of the old Breckland woodland, that is magical. If you need the city, Bury St. Edmonds, Cambridge & Newmarket are within easy driving distance, with Bury being the closest, with convenient shopping.

“Wonderful break”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2014

We had a wonderful week's holiday staying at Curlew Cottage near Lackford Lakes. The complex was gated which was of great benefit as a toddler was in our party. The Cottage was designed and decorated to an extremely high standard. It was equipment with a fridge/freezer, microwave, electric cooker, flat screen TV, DVD player, dish washer and ample cutlery and crockery. The lounge was spacious for the four adults and baby we had in our party. The two toilets were most welcome fo rthe changing of the baby. A lovely tranquil break with access to short walks around the lakes. Will recommend to friends and hopefully book up again for next year.
