This converted barn is set in a quiet rural location just outside Chediston village, near Halesworth, and convenient for ​Southwold​, Walberswick​​, Dunwich​, Aldeburgh​, Minsmer​e​​​ and​ Snape Maltings​​​ as well as the attractive inland Suffolk countryside and rural villages.​

​Set in twenty acres of peaceful woodland and paddocks belonging to Mount Pleasant Farm, this breathtaking thatched barn has been converted to a very high standard to provide spacious accommodation for a family or two couples.

Neighbouring market towns and villages include Halesworth, Holton, Rumburgh, Beccles and Bungay. These towns have a good selection of local shops, pub, restaurants and farmer’s markets. The local railway stations are at Halesworth and Beccles.

The barn, also dating from about 1635, has been restored, leaving fabulous beams exposed from floor to ceiling. The original entrance doors have been glazed and now let in huge amounts of light. At either end of the central thatched hall are two Victorian red brick extensions which house the additional living areas.

The allure of the barn is the vast central living area with its cosy triangle of sumptuous three-seater sofas positioned ideally between the floor to ceiling picture windows which let in the surrounding views and light. For entertainment in the main living space there are a plethora of things listed below:

Three movable bookcases providing a wide range of fiction, non-fiction and reference books, radio, CD player, modern flat screen TV with Freeview and a DVD player.. A superb three-quarter sized slate snooker and pool table, and a digital weighted-key piano.

Mount Pleasant Farm Barn is a seventeenth century, converted barn with a spacious central living space and two double bedrooms.

The barn has two double bedrooms at either end of a central living area; a ground floor double and a first floor double with additional double sofa-bed.

The Barn is close to the stunning seaside town of Southwold on the heritage coast and is convenient for many coastal and inland villages and towns.

Mount Pleasant Farm sits in the gentle folds of the north east Suffolk landscape. The main farm house consists of a seventeenth century thatched cottage joined by an extension to a farmhouse, of around 1635, typical of Suffolk’s agricultural heritage.


Ground floor double bedroom with en-suite shower room

This side has a spacious ground floor double bedroom with a large picture-window door with the original stable door acting as a shutter. This room looks out onto the grounds with views of the Jacobean farm house. The en-suite shower room and W/C is on the same level allowing access for less mobile visitors.

As can be seen from these aerial views the barn is surrounded by quiet paddocks and woodland, home to varied wildlife. Although, no longer a working farm, there are horses, swans, ducks, geese as well as visiting wildfowl to our four ponds.

Many marked footpaths and cyclepaths from the barn take walkers and cyclists through the beautiful surrounding countryside, these join with the ‘Munnings Trail’. The closest villages are Chediston Green & Chediston Village, with the closest local pub, the Rumburgh Buck, in Rumburgh village [2 miles north].
