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 and washer/dryer.
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.

We had a lovely stay at Denzil and Nicky's barn. The barn is beautiful, clean and exactly like the photos. Denzil and Nicky were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. If you're looking for a peaceful place to stay, in a lovely setting this will not disappoint.

Stayed at Hedgerow Barn for three nights - my mum, sister and Casper the dog. Had a magical time - mooching around the lovely Suffolk countryside and the market towns of Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds. The barn is beautiful and the hosts very helpful and friendly. The barn had everything you could wish for a cosy weekend (or longer) stay.

Recommend, recommend, recommend. Book this place, you won't be disappointed. Looks exactly like it does in the photographs, with lovely surroundings. The place was spotless when we arrived and very cosy. It has everything you need from a short weekend break to an extended stay. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Nicky and Denzil, as they were away but communication was excellent and from what I read elsewhere they are terrific hosts. The only tiny proviso (and it isn't really a criticism) is that the indoor fireplace isn't a real one. Not surprising... who'd want to risk drunken guests razing their barn but just wanted to mention it, as the site isn't clear. It is a very convincing one, however and the place is warm enough without one anyway. 10/10

This delightful destination is the Jewel in the Crown of retreats! My friend and I loved it the moment we walked in and childishly raced around exploring. The barn is so characterful, quirky and charming that it can't fail to win you over. The beds were heavenly and hard to leave but there was lots to do beckon you on just on your doorstep - horses, hens, lovely grounds and pretty lanes and fields to tramp on before breakfast. Hedgerow Barn was also a warm and snug haven at night when returning from a multitude of nearby attractions. I defy anyone not to love this place!
