Our converted barn is in a peaceful location and beautiful setting. In close proximity to a stunning local nature reserve and a short drive from historic Bury St Edmunds and Lavenham. The station in the local village of Thurston offers regular services to Cambridge and Norwich. The area has plenty of country walks,great pubs and restaurants, and the Suffolk coast is within an hours drive.

The space

Hedgerow Barn is Grade II listed and has been beautifully converted to retain its original features. The studded beam work is all exposed, and it offers a large open plan living space with all the facilities you would expect. The Barn offers rustic period charm with 21st century living. Many of the furnishings are antique. There are two TVs, one concealed behind the cupboard doors above the fireplace in the living area with a DVD player, the other in the upstairs double bedroom. There is a very efficient electric heating system with an independent thermostat for every room.
The Barn is well equipped for self catering with many cooking utensils, gas hob and oven, microwave, toaster, undercounter fridge with small freezer compartment, dishwasher, washer/dryer, iron and ironing board.
To minimise the provisions you need to bring the following are all provided in the Barn: Muesli, Cornflakes, 1.5 litres milk, tea, green or herbal tea, coffee ( freeze dried instant and cafetière if you want to bring ground coffee) black pepper, salt and olive oil. You will also find kitchen roll, dustbin liners and all washing up equipment, including dishwasher tablets.

If you want to eat out there are plenty of places locally, many of them listed in the orange file in the Barn - ask us if you want any details in advance. Bury st Edmunds has all the major supermarkets (Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda ) so if you want to arrange an online delivery to arrive ahead of you, tell us your slot and we will receive it for you and make sure all perishables are put in the fridge/freezer. Additional fridge/ freezer space can be provided on site if required.
We also provide loo roll, all towels, tea towels, bed linen ( except if you are using our travel cot when you will need to bring your own cot bedding). You'll find shampoo, hairdryer and soap at every basin. We are happy to clean the Barn and change the linen mid-stay for guests renting the Barn for more than a week - let us know when you arrive ( or during your stay)if you would like this and we can arrange a mutually convenient time.

- Children are very welcome at Hedgerow Barn and we don't put the price up during school holidays! We can supply a Mothercare travel cot for small children but you will need to bring your own cot linen. There is a door at the bottom of the stairs, and we have installed a retractable stair gate for the top, which goes straight into the upstairs bedroom. The downstairs double bed converts to a single, if preferred. There are two ponds in the garden, usually dry in the summer but often holding water in the winter so, though small children are welcome in the garden, they must be supervised at all times. There are many activities locally for children ranging from the local playground to the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds where there are aviaries and a playground (admission free) to a Gruffalo Hunt in Thetford Forest, Jimmy's Farm and the excellent Banham Zoo. Ickworth Park offers lovely walks, a playground and a cafe.
- Check in is any time after 3pm and check out any time before 11am.
- Well behaved dogs are welcome at a cost of £5 per dog per night. If you are planning to bring more than one dog to Hedgerow Barn please check with us as to suitability before instant booking. We have our own dogs here as well as horses and chickens so dogs must be kept under control at all times. Usual rules apply to clearing up after your dog. No dogs upstairs or on the furniture and we ask that you don't leave your dog unattended in the barn, and if you think it might jump on the sofa during the night, it is put in a crate.

This is a beautifully presented cottage - if anything it's even prettier than the pictures! There are a few comings-and-goings outside, but it's overall quite quiet. Nicky was very helpful and communicative before and through the trip, but also left us space to do our own thing, which was appreciated. The decorative fireplace was on when we arrived, which was really welcoming, and there was all the information we needed there. Thoroughly recommended and I hope we'll be back soon.

If you are looking for a beautiful location with great amenities and wonderful hosts, this is the destination for you. The barn is simply stunning with plenty of space for 4 adults. Nicky and Denzil went out of their way to accommodate our needs and we had a lovely stay. We visited on the weekend of the Christmas Market and found it the perfect place to rest and recuperate after a busy day shopping! Taxis were around £10-15 into Bury St Edmunds depending on time of day. Can't recommend more highly. Book now, you won't regret it! :)

We had a really lovely time at Hedgerow Barn. The barn itself is really well equipped, very cosy and a great place for a very peaceful get away

If you are thinking about a stay in this part of Suffolk, then don't hestitate - this is the place to come. The barn is welcoming, expertly and thoughtfully decorated and furnished with lots of little touches above and beyond the mediocre and standard. The property itself is very pretty, with a lovely garden and a path around the outside which is great is you have a dog in tow. Denzil and Nicky are enthusiastic and knowlegeable hosts and supply lots of information on local attractions - something that isn't always the case these days. Thurston is well connected for getting to most of West Suffolk's main attractions with Cambridge too under an hour's drive away. All in all, couldn't speak more highly about staying there.

We had a wonderful time at the Barn - it's such an idyllic setting and the barn itself is just lovely. We didn't want to leave! Denzil & Nicky were delightful and super helpful hosts. Highly recommend.

We spent a weekend in Suffolk and hadn’t been to the area around bury-st-Edmamds, we couldn’t be happier with hedgerow barn. Nicky and Denzil were so easy to deal with, their communication was excellent and very prompt with responses and information on the barn, and the area. They went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible from setting up an extra camping cot for our son (he ended up taking my spot in the bed) to offering to collect my wife from the train station as I was running late driving up. The location is great! Very quiet with lots of wildlife around, horses, rabbits and hares, free range chickens and pheasants. The tips we were given for the area were fantastic and we only wish we had more time to spend exploring this beautiful part of England. We would defiantly go back and 100% recommend to friends and family!

Had a lovely weekend stay at Denzil and Nicky's place. The barn was so welcoming and cosy. The sitting and dining room was a fantastic place to relax and enjoy a movie. The sounding area is stunning and the gardens are beautiful. Nicky and Denzil were fantastic hosts. Highly recommend staying here!!
