Tastefully converted by its owners, this barn is ideal for both couples and families wishing to spend time relaxing and experiencing the many attractions located in this stunning part of East Anglia.

This contemporary barn conversion is located in a pretty Suffolk village and is ideal for taking a stroll through the countryside made famous by the paintings of John Constable. The family-friendly home is situated in a complex of properties with its own enclosed garden, suitable for dogs, which affords you views of the paddocks and farmland beyond. The property has two bedrooms which comfortably provide sleeping accommodation for four family members and their two pooches.

The open-plan interior of this property is low maintenance, with brick flooring that makes wiping up muddy pawprints a doddle. Pups are also sure to appreciate the free-standing wood burner in the lounge area, which is guaranteed to take the chill off any evening and can add a romantic touch to an evening for two. For larger groups, you can also rent the adjoining barn which can be accessed via interconnecting doors, sleeping parties of up to six people. A contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need for holiday dining, including a dishwasher to take the effort out of washing up.

This cottage sits on the edge of Dedham Vale, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For those looking to explore the local area, you’ll find a myriad of walking and cycling tracks joining the quaint wool towns and villages nearby, each with their own independent shops and antique stores. Historic Colchester can be found just 11 miles away, which has the honour of being named the first Roman town ever recorded. Elements of the colonisation remain here, with the original Roman walls forming part of a local walking trail.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Very comfortable and well-equipped little house, although it would, we think, be too small for four adults to stay in happily. As we were two adults and one dog, we were perfectly comfy. Really appreciated the generous provisions that the owners kindly left for us and also heartily appreciated the absence of bossy 'dos and don'ts', which seem to beRead more part and parcel of most holiday home experiences these days.

An absolutely lovely cottage, very modern and clean. A gift of breakfast items was left which was lovely and very much appreciated, much better than the standard what people usually leave. This is a two bedroom cottage and joined on is a 1 bedroom one. The only downside is possibly who may be staying if anyone in the adjoining cottage.

The cottage was perfect in every way, and the owners were delightful. However from day one we had problems with the heating and hot water - it kept going off. The owners did their very best to come and try to rectify it but sadly without success. We also had a problem with the wifi - it worked for the first three days but then we couldn't connect, Read morethis may be because our laptop is about 5 years old.

Fig Barn is finished to a very high standard, and has a wonderful outlook across open fields. There are some great local walks nearby, plus a pub and cafe within easy walking distance along very quiet roads. We fell in love with the local area, there is so much history, and would have loved to stay longer!
