    “Lovely accommodation, had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay.”

    We were able to borrow games, DVDs and some crabbing buckets and nets which our sons loved! Location was great, just outside of the lovely town with everything there, Butchers, Bakery, Deli, choice of Take-aways and eating out. Only 15 minutes from the beach at Southwold which we visited a number of times. We were able to take our dog which was fantastic for us as a family! Didn't need to take towels (only beach towels) which saved us a lot of space in our suitcases, thank you!

The property

The stylish Living/Kitchen/Dining room is light and airy, ideal for socialising with friends and family. A bespoke well-equipped kitchen sits at one end, next to the dining area furnished with table and six chairs, with the comfortable sitting area next to the doors so you can make the most of the fresh air in the summer. Both bedrooms are beautifully furnished, one twin and the other king with the modern bathroom sitting between the two. Ground Floor You’re welcomed into a hall with all the rooms opening off it and a limed oak flooring running throughout, other than the bathroom which is tiled. Kitchen/Living/Dining Room A wonderful open plan space stretching to double doors opening onto the deck which sits over the moat with an adjacent pond with bi-fold windows along the side where you can sit and watch the wildlife; kingfishers, squirrels, and muntjac enjoying the moat. The bespoke and well-equipped kitchen sits at one end with integrated Bosch electric oven, induction hob, extractor, under counter fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher, and freestanding microwave. A solid oak table with six chairs sits between the kitchen and living space which is furnished with a three-seater leather Chesterfield sofa with matching armchair and an Ercol rocking chair, plus occasional tables with lamps and a wall-mounted TV. Master Bedroom Wake to the dawn chorus with bi-fold windows opening onto the moat and woodland beyond. The bed is king-size with two bedside tables, a single wardrobe with drawers, and a ladder desk/dressing table with mirror and light. Guest Bedroom Again sitting quietly at the back of the property with windows over the moat; furnished with twin beds with under bed storage and handsome metal drawer unit. Bathroom Conveniently sitting between the two bedrooms, this modern fully tiled bathroom has a bath with rain shower, WC, washbasin, heated towel rail and a Velux window giving natural light. Outside Red Poll Barn sits next to another self-catering cottage, Milk Parlour, which can be booked in conjunction to accommodate six guests. There's an additional holiday property opposite, Rookyards making it a great option for friends and family, although the dining and sitting areas aren't big enough for all ten guests to congregate comfortably. This stunning self-catering holiday home is surrounded by countryside with an abundance of wildlife including muntjac deer, bats, badgers, squirrels and many birds for you to identify from the comfort of your own private south facing sun deck which overlooks the moat with a wooden bridge across to the woodland and the pond just next door – an idyllic spot to sit with a good book or simply watch the wildlife. There’s outdoor furniture and a BBQ for you to use if you enjoy eating al fresco. The owners are happy for you to wander around almost two acres of their stunning moated gardens and grounds. For the ultimate in relaxation, guests can bring their rods and fish for rudd and perch in the pond. Please note there is a washing machine available for guests use in the outhouse (this is a communal washing machine, shared with two other properties) There’s a drive from the main road to the Rookyards Estate with ample parking for two cars and a path leads to the door of your accommodation. The surrounding countryside lends itself to cycling and you can store bikes undercover in one of the cart sheds. Note: This property can be booked with neighbouring Milk Parlour (Ref 1116921), together sleeping 6 guests.

Note: EV charging is via an external domestic plug socket and that there is an additional daily fee paid to the owner directly

The Halesworth Town Trail offers a walk through the town whilst learning about its history, whilst within easy reach is the gentle, undulating surrounding countryside, which is ideal for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers. The beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coastline features unspoilt heathlands and the RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve, whilst the internationally renowned Snape Maltings Concert Hall, and the delightful coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh are all within a short drive. With the cities of Ipswich and Norwich both within touring distance, Halesworth is an ideal location from which to discover Suffolk.
