“Good location, no phone signal”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was prefect height for me at 5foot 3, but unfornately my boyfriend is 5 11, and several features caused him some problems. The shower over the bath meant that he couldn't use it. The slopping ceilings made it difficult to stand. Small tv which was some distance from the sofa, so we had to sit at the breakfast bar. The location was ideal for us as we attended a wedding at Bruisyard barn, it's a beautiful setting and very peaceful. If you want phone signal don't stop here, however, there is free wifi. Overall good location just to short in height.

Management Response
Jun 10, 2014
I am not sure which network this customer used but we have never had the comment of 'no signal' before. We use Vodafone which has an excellent signal and I also know that O2 and Orange do have some signal especially from the elevated position of Owls Nest but I can not comment on all networks. With regards to the slopping roof, the main living area does have a high ceiling but maybe the ground floor accommodation 'Paddock Barn' would have been more suitable in this case as it has a large walk in shower and regular ceilings throughout.

“Fantastic short break!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Lovely barn conversion all you need for a short break. Adequate facilities, very friendly owners with lots of suggestions on places to visit. Just beware of the pitched roof as my partner kept hitting his head and he is 5'9.

“Secluded but accessible”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This property would be difficult to find without a sat nav but once one has got one's bearings it is surprising how convenient it is for all the lovely villages and towns in that vicinity.
There is a sense of stepping back in time and it is wonderful to have totally black nights with the only sounds being the owls.
The area is surrounded by footpaths and bridle paths and it is ideal for cycling with a miriad of quiet lanes. Woodbridge is approx. 45 mins by bike and offers many delightful eating places.
