Spexhall Barns are two self-contained self-catering cottages surrounded by countryside with an abundance of wildlife including muntjac deer, bats, badgers, squirrels and many birds for you to identify. Both properties have private decks and the one outside Red Poll Barn, overlooking the moat has sufficient space and outdoor furniture for six guests to enjoy eating al fresco, perhaps enjoying a BBQ.
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.
There’s a drive from the main road to the Rookyards Estate with ample parking for three cars and a path leads to the doors of your accommodation. There's an additional holiday cottage opposite, great for extra friends and family, although the living areas aren't big enough for ten people to socialise comfortably.

Spexhall Barns lie in the village of Spexhall, surrounded by idyllic Suffolk countryside offering country walks or cycling, and easy access to the old market towns of Bungay, Beccles and Halesworth with an excellent array of local shop and eateries.
The 500 year old ‘Huntsman and Hounds’ pub is approximately a ten minute walk away and, as well as offering good cuisine by the fire or in the mature gardens.
The Suffolk Heritage Coast to the east includes the popular Georgian seafront town of Southwold, home to the Adnams Sole Bay brewery.
There are excellent sporting and leisure facilities in the area including a number of golf courses, sailing and water sports on the river estuaries as well as fishing, horse-riding and bird-watching.
Please note that Spexhall Barns are adjacent and not interconnecting and there needs to be an adult sleeping in each barn for security reasons. There is an open air courtyard between the two, with a low wall giving easy access between them.
A well-behaved dog is welcome. If you wish to bring a dog it must be mentioned at the time of booking on the booking form and is subject to our conditions of booking. If your dog’s a swimmer please make sure it’s dry before going back into the barn and obviously supervise it in the water.
The garden is also not fully fenced and the main road is about 200 metres down the drive.
A cot and high chair are available from the owners if requested at the time of booking. There is a lot of unfenced water around in the pond and moat so ‘little guests’ will need to be supervised at all times.
The accommodation is single storey so suitable for guests with a mobility problem, however please note that the shower is over the bath and the entrance is too tight for a wheelchair to turn.
Sorry, no smoking or unaccompanied teenagers.
