BFB's Overview.

This stylish Grade II-listed barn conversion is a real treat for a family of four or two couples with babies. It's a peaceful, rural idyll but with an excellent child-friendly pub a short stroll away and many coastal towns and beaches within an easy drive.

The barn's interiors are tasteful and contemporary but sensitive to the original features and come with added luxury in the form of top notch bed linens, a huge comfortable sofa and elegant ensuite shower rooms attached to both bedrooms. The open-beamed ceilings give the barn a light and airy feel, whilst contemporary prints on the walls and comfortable modern furnishings bring it bang up to date.

Mini guests will love discovering the stash of toys, games and arts materials suitable for all ages, along with buckets and spades for fun-filled days on the many beaches within 20 - 30 minutes drive. Outside, the raised garden boasts glorious rural views best enjoyed with a chilled glass of wine and BBQ (provided) whilst junior plays with the kiddies' water table.

The single-storey design makes this ideal for crawlers and toddlers, with no need for stairgates. Plus, a useful list of baby kit (see fast facts) ensures parents can pack light and relax on arrival. Speaking of relaxing, the award-winning gastro pub 'the Turk's Head' is only a few minutes pleasant stroll away and has lovely gardens with outside seating and a kiddies menu with all the usual favourites - perfect for a sunny Sunday lunch or early evening supper. It also offers take-away if grown ups fancy a special treat at home when little ones are tucked up in bed. Added to that, there's a lovely farm shop and cafe within about 10mins walk offering breakfast, brunch and lunch, plus delicious local produce and wine to take home and enjoy during the evenings.

All in all, its hard to a imagine a more relaxing rural retreat with tots in tow!

The excellent village pub is only a few minutes walk away and offers good quality meals including a kid's menu and a highly rated Sunday lunch. It also offers take-away, which is a real treat for parents trying to stick to their little ones' bedtime routines.

For those who do fancy cooking, the village fishmonger and farmshop are both only about 10mins away on foot and boast a great selection of delicious local produce and treats. The latter offers a delivery service too, so parents can pre-order arrival night nibbles, or local sausages, bacon and bread for first morning breakfasts and get their holiday off to a great start. The adjoining cafe is open daily (except Sundays) for breakfasts and lunches with sausage rolls that come highly recommended!

Further afield, the Africa Alive safari park nr Lowerstoft has a fabulous re-creation of the African savannah in which animals roam freely as they would in the wild, plus a fun land train trip with commentary on the animals.
