Description

All the properties at Iken Barns have been converted from a range of former farm buildings (or byres) and now provide a high standard of accommodation. Exposed brickwork and ceiling timbers have been retained to give interest. They are all approached from the central yard but have individual patios and low enclosures. The outlook from the barns is either over farmland towards Tunstall Forest or over the River Alde towards Snape.

Old Mill House is a large single storey self-catering holiday cottage.  The barn provides exceptionally spacious and well-equipped accommodation perfect for a couple or small family. Shop: 2 miles Pub: 2 miles.

Iken is a reputed base of Boudica and the marauding Iceni tribes who made good use of the commanding position on the south side of the Alde Estuary. Later, in 869AD, a Viking sailing fleet destroyed the 7th Century monastery at Iken. In the 19th Century sailing barges used the river to trade corn and coal between Snape, London and the east coast ports. Now, you will see the occasional pleasure boat whilst taking in the highly regarded SSSI wildlife habitat and the stunning estuary scenery. Views span from the 7th Century St Butolphs Church, standing on a promontory of higher ground, to the former maltings at Snape which are now vibrant with the sounds of the famous concert hall.

Reviews

Great location. Excellent parking. High standard of fittings.

Mrs Barbara N,

The accommodation is lovely and the surrounding area is peaceful rural environment, yet not too far from supermarkets and local pubs/restaurants. There are plenty of outdoor activities in the area. My wife and I spent a wonderful week in Suffolk and we’ll definitely go back there again and book the same accommodation.

Past Customer,

Clean, tidy, warm & cosy. ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ Ideal centre for bird watching / walking & handy for Sutton Hoo.

Past Customer,

The accommodation was in a beautiful location

Dr Ian H,

Very well appointed and a great location. Fantastic walking and brilliant with our lively puppy. The underfloor heating was such a treat. I would definitely recommend it and would come again.
