Had 4 nights at Bunkers Barn Cottage and absolutely loved it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to relax and just let the world go by without them. No shops nearby so need to take supplies. A car is essential as its approximately 6 miles to Bury St. Edmunds the nearest town (and shops). I have already booked my next stay and would recommend it to anyone who loves the countryside.
We arrived at Bunkers Barn cottage to find a superbly appointed and spotlessly clean cottage for two.
Pierre & Tonya were the perfect hosts, easy to get hold of, but respected our privacy.
The swimming pool, which felt like we had exclusive use of, was at a perfect temperature and had changing facilities and shower room - superb!
When we are in this area of the country again, Bunkers Barn Cottage will be our first choice for acommodation.
The barn was spotless and had everything we needed. Unfortunately we didn’t have time for swimming as we only stayed 2 nights and got the bus both days to Bury St Edmunds for the Christmas Market. Tonya was kind enough to drop us at the bus stop on the Friday morning and we discovered lots of goodies that had been left for us when we checked in later that evening - so thank you very much Tonya!
The bed was huge and comfortable - I would like to say that it had a feather quilt and not one of those horrible unbreathable Micro fibre ones and the shower had excellent power and heat.
The barn is very private, wildlife and tranquility in abundance - there really is nothing not to like - we will be back...
We stayed at the barn twice in the last few weeks while house hunting and can thoroughly recommend it for a luxury, relaxing break. It has panoramic views of open countryside and is only six miles from Bury St Edmunds. Everything is clean and tidy and the super kingsize bed is very comfortable. What made it extra special for us was the heated indoor pool and the lady owner’s warm welcome.
Lovely swimming pool, which my son couldn't get enough of.
About 15 minutes to Bury St Edmunds and 45 minutes to Banham Zoo which as some good activities for the kids.
Really lovely short break.
Accommodation and the location are excellent.The heating swimming pool was a well added bonus after a day of visiting surrounding places of interest.Everything you need in the barn cottage.Would certainly recommend this and would stay again. .
