From the owner

Swallow Barn is a converted barn adjacent to our very special 16th Century timber framed house. We have converted the barn to a high specification, taking into account our favourite bits of all the holiday lets we have stayed in over the years. We aim to create a sense of cosiness without loss of practicality. the barn affords lovely views over the field and is light and airy.

Swallow Barn's unique feature is that it is in a very special position, overlooking open fields. It has its own garden which is a haven for wildlife. We commonly see a variety of birds and deer walk through our meadow.

We are dog lovers and own 2 rescue dogs so we are happy to accept well behaved dogs at the property. We also have a cat who is dog friendly to dogs who know how to treat him!

Dog guests will be able to share the use of our 2 acre field behind the house. Please note owners will need to bring their own dog bowls and bedding.

Guests will have sole use of the barn which has its own enclosed garden.

We are always happy to help with any questions you may have but will also leave you in peace if this is what you prefer.

Stowmarket Station is 20 mins away and is an hour or so from London Liverpool Street. Public Transport is limited so a car is essential. There is a bus service from the village which goes to Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket. The local shop is 5 minutes by car and the Pub is about 8 mins away by car or half an hour on foot.
