The detail

This one-of-a-kind accommodation is packed full of history and charm. From its humble beginnings as an apple press barn, it’s been lovingly converted into a stylish hideaway for two. Situated in picturesque, rural Suffolk, it provides the perfect countryside retreat.

Inside this charming barn you’ll find a cosy, welcoming space in which to relax. Exposed brickwork and rustic beams sit alongside antique furniture and decorative floor tiles to create a truly unique property.

The studio-style, open-plan accommodation has the restful bedroom at its centre. The comfortable bed, with its decorative floral headboard, boasts a luxury mattress and handmade blankets. From here you can lie and stargaze through the perfectly positioned roof window.

The living area, with its soft stripy sofa, offers another space to relax. Here you’ll also find a small table and stools, ideal for enjoying your morning coffee or a light bite. Rustic shutters at the windows and a fabulous rust-coloured chandelier add to the barn’s charm.

The ensuite is fully equipped with a traditional, free-standing roll-top bath, large shower, WC and hand basin.

Outside in the private garden area you’ll find a pretty lawned area, some comfy deck chairs, and a wood-fired hot tub, ideal for a relaxing soak at the end of the day. There's also a fire pit with a BBQ grill, so you can source some local ingredients and cook up a storm in style before dining al fresco in the fresh Suffolk air.

The Old Press is set within four acres of peaceful grounds. Surrounded by trees, meadows, bird song and wildlife, you’ll really feel like you’ve got away from it all. There’s even a pretty pond where you can sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. And if all that R&R isn’t enough, why not book yourself into the on-site Piggery Spa for a relaxing sauna? Or if you’re feeling a little more energetic, Dutch-style bikes are available to hire and the surrounding, quiet country lanes provide the perfect place to cycle.

In the local area, you can enjoy a meal at one of the welcoming pubs, visit a vineyard to sample the wine or wander along some of the many beautiful lanes. You’re also within a half an hour drive of the Suffolk coast where you’ll find charming seaside towns such as Southwold, with its lovely sandy beach, hut-lined promenade and landmark lighthouse.
