We stayed at Old Manse Barn for Christmas Eve and Christmas night as we were celebrating Christmas locally with family. Sue welcomed us warmly, and we loved the very large yet warm cosy and very private self-contained studio and its charming views on the countryside, directly from the very comfortable bed. The shower is great too! Despite the fact that... More

We had a great weekend for road cycling in the area arranged at the last minute. The barn is fantatstic, the welcome could not be warmer or more friendly. The breakfasts were superb. To wake up with panoramic views of the countryside was an experience to behold. We were smitten and will be back.

Myself, My Husband and 2.5 year old had a lovely one night stay at Old Manse Barn. The entire place is finished to a very high standard, we couldn't fault it! We all had a wonderful nights sleep in the super comfy bed while our daughter slept in her travel cot next to us. We all enjoyed the yummy breakfast... More

This is a self-contained studio apartment above a garage (unused apart from storage, so no car noises to wake you up) at the side of the owner's large garden. There is a neat kitchenette with a well-stocked fridge for breakfast, which Sue (the owner) refreshes daily with something different. A huge and very comfortable double bed, seating area with TV,...

Deserves all the accolades it is getting. A great place for just chilling out after a long walk or visiting Lavenham just up the road. Sue is a marvellous host - nothing is too much trouble. The barn itself is well kitted out, clean, and very comfortable in a modern style. Once the door closes, you are on your own.... More

We can just agree with the other reviewers about all the qualities of Sue's B&B. This time we stayed here with our two children and they enjoyed the stay as much as we did. They loved searching the fridge and cupboards for their breakfast favourites. Their mattresses, which we could easily slide out of the way during the day (and... More

The Old Manse Barn is luxury accommodation, set in beautiful gardens off a quiet country lane. Sue, the owner, has sorted just the perfect set-up for us tired city folk, in need of rest and relaxation in the country. The breakfast was SUPERB. Something a little different each day, all fresh food and excellent quality. We could not fault it.... More

A fantastic b and b run by a person of outstanding ability to make visitors very welcome. The standard of the accommodation is of the highest achievable. Everything is superb - the position of the Old Manse Barn in the village of Cockfield in Suffolk is quite incredible. Under the big skies of Suffolk the view from the bed on... More

We only stayed one night at this beautiful property. It wasn't long enough! Sue, our host, was very welcoming and the amenities were brilliant. We loved being able to do our own thing at breakfast and the view when we woke up was wonderful. Nothing but positives about this place, clean, comfortable, wifi, outside space, big shower etc etc etc.

We stayed for 3 nights for our 30th wedding anniversary. The accommodation is just delightful - we loved it. The breakfast (which also includes some yummy treats for supper) is delicious and beautifully presented. Need another excuse to come back . . .
