The Experience

Why venture to Bali when paradise lies here? Seasoned travellers Jo and Nick have transported a slice of the Orient to their ‘nest’ in rural Suffolk. Within handsome oak barns they’ve laid out their treasures, from a romantic gatehouse for two to an opulent barn; each has its idiosyncratic style and private walled garden. Enter the Coach House through a terracotta-tiled kitchen to stumble upon the first of many Indonesian delights: rich red sofas, rugs, massive fireplace.

Upstairs are carved doors and walls a deep blue; centre stage: a cushion-strewn four-poster. The vaulted bedroom is a rich red, with a carved bedhead and glamorous textiles, and the en suites are little gems – thick white towels and bathrobes, glittering tiles, vibrant walls.

Halesworth has brilliant butchers and grocers, there’s a pub 20 minutes by foot and the sparkling sea at Southwold – seven miles. You can even hire the owners’ beach hut for the day.

The atmosphere is like nothing I've met before in visiting Sawdays properties. The sense of discovering a secret lost world is overwhelming, down to the tiniest detail. each unique and overwhelmingly the sense of the exotic far east, yet in sleepy green Suffolk.

The neighbourhood

This is a particularly remote part of rural Suffolk, on a minor road, but once you turn off into the narrow driveway between encircling trees the adventure begins. Each barn is separate, hidden among trees, and each is different. Find a summer house, a pond for gazing and lots of walks through the woods or a circular walk around the farm for about a mile. Halesworth is 3.5 miles for a train station.

Local points of interest from Jo Jordan & Nick Fisher

  • Beach Hut available in nearby Southwold between April & October! It's near the Pier which has got to be the zaniest funkiest Pier in the country and a great place for a bracing walk even in the Winter!
  • This area is Foodie Heaven what with all the Produce Markets, Farm Shops, seasonal Food Fairs, proper Butcher shops in all the towns around and famous delis not to mention fresh fish straight off the boats .
  • Suffolk may not be famous for hills but that makes it all the better for walking! There's loads of paths along the coast and through the countryside, heath and forest. Plenty of wildlife and birds.
  • You're spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out - from award-winning public houses to posh restaurants; downhome pub grub to the best fish & chips in the country!
  • We're perfectly placed for coast, country & town. Quiet &rural it may be but not inconvenient as there's a village pub & shop and the nearest market town, with all facilities, is only 2 miles away.
  • Please do visit our own WEBSITE for lots more detailed information on what you can expect here and what is around and about.


Jo Jordan & Nick Fisher

Jo is the main point of contact and Nick is a talented builder and recycles everything: beams, bricks, troughs and tractors; solar panels fuel constant hot water. They completely rebuilt the house and barns then went to Sumatra and brought back two containers of furniture, wooden beams, pictures, old doors, lamps and knick-knacks. They are laid back, unfussy hosts who are there if you need.
