Outside: The Granary is attached to the owners' home which is a converted Suffolk thatched barn and the driveway from the road is shared through a gated entrance.  The drive to The Granary is separate and leads guests to the parking area and garden for the Granary which is not overlooked by the Barn.  There is a wooden shed with additional garden furniture for the use of granary guests only.

There is a Barbeque platform adjacent to the Summer House for disposable barbecues.

The area:

The cottage is located close to the Sotterley Estate which holds various local events throughout the year including the pony club meetings and horse trails around the estate. The estate is well known for the snowdrops in the grounds in the spring and is a haven for song birds and other wildlife, supported by the combination of sensitve farming methods, traditional field sports and 400 acres of carefully managed mixed woodland.  

As well as being close to the Suffolk Coast and nearby market town of Beccles, The Granary is also within easy reach of beautiful historic houses like Somerleyton and other National Trust properties, the castles at Bungay and Framlingham, wildlife sancturaries at Minsmere, Carlton Marshes and Lopham Fen as well as local farmers markets, farm shops, restaurants and pubs.


The Granary has central heating and WiFi. 

A small basket of logs and kindling is provided on arrival in the winter months (November-March)

Two medium-sized well behaved dogs are welcome at the cottage but should be kept under control whilst walking in the countryside as the cottage is located within the Sotterley Estate where country pursuits take place. We ask that dogs do not go on the furniture. A dog bath and shower is provided on the terrace!
