We recently stayed for 2 nights in Henry’s Barn at Old Hall Farm in Walpole, Suffolk. We were truly enchanted with the quality of the facilities, the friendliness of the hosts, and the natural beauty and peace of the surroundings. Usually I am a difficult sleeper, but not here: I slept through both nights, in a very comfortable bed, and in very quiet surroundings. Henry’s Barn was very clean, well maintained, fully equipped with all modern amenities, and generally in very good order. It features a fantastic patio, with a spectacular view into open fields and distant copse towards the West. Henry’s Barn offered a quiet oasis where we could rest, but it was also our base for walks in the local peaceful bucolic surroundings and for short trips to the sea (Southwold, Aldeburgh and Orford). The owners are a very nice couple, who clearly care about the comfort and well-being of their guests. We left the place with the distinct intention to come back, hopefully even for a longer period. This stay rates amongst the very best we have experienced ever in the UK! It is difficult to come up with any negative points. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking quietness and comfort, between sea and land! Although it was just the two of us, I noted that Henry’s Barn would be imminently suitable for a family with young kids. Also, it’s design has been made with wheel chair users in mind.…
This place is fantastic, we booked all three cottages! The host Lucy (and her husband) are brilliant, everything you would want a host to be and she makes delicious brownies. The cottages and surroundings are amazing. Through Lucy’s recommendation we used a local caterer (emma), the food was excellent - would highly recommend. My sons couldn’t get enough of the games room and swimming pool. I cannot fault this place, so glad I came across it. Hoping to go back soon. There is a reason this place has only got 5 star reviews!!!!
We hired all three barns for a family get together this was our second visit the first was amazing and the second was too our family had the best time we could stay Covid friendly plenty to do kids loved the swimming pool they had missed being able to swimming our granddaughter swim for the first time no armbands We had Emma cook us an amazing meal it was a surprise from our children can’t thank Lucy enough for our super break wonderful memories back again next year
This is the 2nd time we have stayed here as a family , the cottages are fab , spotlessly clean and furnished lovely. Also on site is a play barn with push n rides for our younger family members and snooker and table tennis tables. And of course the pool. Lucy the owner is so helpful and provides a laundry room , fire pit and bbq. Have recommended to other family already but we will certainly be back. Located in gorgeous Suffolk countryside but not too far from lovely towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh. Pubs with gardens very near too !
We don’t count how many times we have stayed at Old Hall Farm, just look forward to the next time. Another fantastic week enjoyed in Henry’s Barn. Home comforts as always - thank you Lucy and all who make Old Hall such a treat to stay at. There cannot be a better place to enjoy a family (and dogs) break - especially this year. We cannot recommend highly enough.
