The Suffolk Byre

We have been in business for over 30 years, but decided to change direction and move into sharing our home as a B&B. As the children are now grown up and living in London, we have the space to embark upon a new venture.

As musicians, we purchased Marsh Farm Barn in 1991; an attractive building perfectly suited for a large music room.

The property was once a home for cattle owned by the local farm, hence we decided to re-name it ‘The Byre’. The barns were established in the early 1800′s. With a mind to conservation, sensitive planning, and craftsmanship, we have embellished the barns to the high standard we offer today.

We have maintained many of the original materials in the rooms; beams in the Music Room, where breakfast is served, and bricks in the kitchen, to name but a few.


The en suite rooms themselves have been beautifully designed in a Georgian style. Each room has a half tester panelled headboard with independently-switched down lighting for bedtime reading, a matching mirror and wardrobes finished with ‘Old White’ Farrow and Ball paint. There is a television and remote control with Freeview, complimentary tea and coffee making facilities and bottled water. Each room has an en suite bathroom with shower, bath and toilet.

Our Courtyard Apartment*:
(please also refer to our Tariffs page for special rates for four nights or more).
The Apartment has a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom, as well as a complete kitchen with dining facility.
There is a courtyard view from the bedroom and the kitchen.

In the summer, sit outside in the Courtyard under the parasol and enjoy the beautiful flowers and peaceful surroundings.

*Please note that breakfast is not included as the Apartment is furnished with a full kitchen; however, should you wish for us to arrange breakfast, please call us on 01502 475196 or 07736161003. An additional charge will apply.

Breakfast is served in the beautiful Music Room, with its York stone flooring, original beams, wood burner and panelling, creating a unique atmosphere, again with a view in to the courtyard.
Our breakfasts include fruit juice, fresh fruit, cereals, a cooked English breakfast of grilled bacon, sausage, egg and tomato. Gluten free bread and sausages are available on request. We are very happy to accommodate any food allergies (please let us know before you arrive).
We operate a strict non-smoking policy inside.
We are unfortunately unable to host pets.
