“Simply idillic”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a beautiful barn, which has been restored to a high standard, it retains character but has a modern feel. Both furniture and facilities are of a good quality, enhancing any stay. Lackford Lakes Nature Reserve is within easy walking distance, perfect for peaceful walks. The surrounding area has many pretty villages, with a choice of restaurants a short drive away. This is the second time we have stayed at these barns, the first time we stayed in Lark Lodge, again we can highly recommended this property. We would most definitely stay again and indeed our parents who joined us during our stay have already booked to stay again.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Wonderful quiet location , Holm Oak Barn a joy to stay in & being able to take summer evening walks around Lackford Lakes is an added bonus. We felt like "James Bond" while waiting for the electronic gates to open & as they did to see the lovely gardens beyond really set the scene for a delighful weeks stay of four generations. Will be lovely to go back in the future to see this complex of barn conversions finished.

“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I brought my Australian relations here to use as a base for touring Suffolk. It is an impressive open plan barn with two double and one twin bedroom - all en suite. It was a fantastic place to stay with everything you could ever need. It has a weak wifi connection which the owners are aware of and will rectify. The area is quiet and peaceful with a few minutes stroll to the Lackford Lakes Reserve. We went to Cambridge, Jimmy's Farm, Sandringham and around the local area, so a great base. There is a games barn to entertain and a laundry. The owners were lovely and helpful and we all had a great week. My aussie relatives were very impressed! Will definitely go again...in fact we did, to Curlew Cottage this time!
