The Great Barn - Club Room
This is the soclal heart of the complex. The breathtaking double-height room with solid oak frame and massive inglenook fireplace is the restaurant and socialising space. Enjoy brunches, lunches, evening meals or bring a drink through from the bar. Special events will also take place here for our members: celebrations of music, food, cinema etc. Underfloor heating, triple glazing and a roaring fire keeps things snug in winter; in summer the doors open up and let the elements in.

The beautiful open pitched ceilings show off the massive oak frame of the building. An open-planned kitchen with breakfast bar and living area with bee-hive chimney place form one wing, while on the other an indulgently over-sized bedroom leads through a dressing area into a huge bathroom with double walk-in shower and two-person roll-top bath.

Dairy Barn Five
Dairy Barn Five is a very generously proportioned one-bedroom room with facilities for the mobility impaired. You can bring the outside inside, by opening up the doors of the lovely panelled living room with bee-hive chimney place and open-plan kitchen, straight onto a large outside terrace. Barrier free access is provided to the large double bedroom with roll-top bath and separate shower room. Beautiful open pitched ceilings create a huge feeling of space and show off the magnificent oak beams. Features full under-floor heating and a wood burning stove. 700 sq feet total area.
Field & Studio Barns
There are two types of field barns: 550sq feet one bedroom studios, and 1100sq feet two-bedroom field barns. Both are designed to bring the outside elements in, while offering complete privacy when needed. A truly wonderful design feature is that the beds allow direct views of the star-filled nights via huge skylights that black out at a touch of a button. Triple-glazed doors, thick insulation, full underfloor heating and wood burners (in the two bedroom units only) make the spaces cosy on winter days. Sit back and watch the changing elements across the meadow they’re sited on. On summer days throw open the doors and let the sunshine and fresh air in.
The original 16th century Suffolk Brick Kiln farmhouse sits at the end of the club in its own land and frames the setting for the entire complex.
The Great Barn Terrace
In summer the doors of the Great Barn open out on to the terrace where drinks are served and barbecues are held. Enjoy the sunshine, the birdsong, and the beautiful magnolia trees.
Great Barn Spa Wing
The spa wing contains an air-conditioned, fully equipped gym with views across the beautiful barn complex. Adjacent to it are two restful massage and body treatment rooms large couple for couples to be pampered together. Then comes the breathtaking "farm style" Hammam (wet sauna) and next to it a solid cedar Finnish dry sauna with views to the outside. As you leave, cool off with a ceiling mounted bucket of cold water all over you, or shower next to the magnificent Bull mosaic.
Great Barn Entertainment Wing
Here we find the beautiful cocktail bar, air-conditioned silk-lined private screening room, large private dining room, billiards room, and big doors that open out on to the terrace.
