Woodbridge Barn Rental Photos and Description

DairyHall with vaulted barn living to Farm House with its AGA and wood burners

We welcome you to Partridge Lodge for luxury self catering holiday accommodation in the heart of Suffolk. Just a 5 minute drive from the popular market town of Woodbridge, this is an ideal location for holidays or weekend breaks within easy reach of Aldeburgh, Snape, Southwold, Orford, Bawdsey and many other beautiful Suffolk hi-lights.

Our self catering accommodation comprises of three excellently equipped child friendly facilities, The Farmhouse (sleeps 8), The Granary (sleeps 4) and The Dairy (sleeps 8). We set ourselves the challenge of providing all our self catering facilities with child friendly equipment that we know from our own experiences can lead to heavy and rather bulky packing which would be great to avoid.

Our plan has always been and remains one that Partridge Lodge should be a relaxing, interesting and fun place for families to come and spend their much prized holiday time.

Although there is (thankfully) no getting away from the beautiful Suffolk countryside and all the areas of interest that it has to offer.

We continue to build and share our now sizeable local knowledge of historic and fun things to do. We'll happily offer restaurant recommendations (which we'll book on your behalf if you like) From Bawdsey Quay to Sutton Hoo to Orford to Aldeburgh to Southwold to Thorpeness to Friday Street Farm Shop to The FarmCafe to the charm of Woodbridge itself, there is so much life and these are only some of our favourite places. It could be useful to know that we have also teamed up with “The Cook Shed” to offer our guests, chef prepared meals delivered to your door. (Click the 'Cook Shed' link below to read on Facebook more about what they do)

The feedback from our guests is always uplifting and gives us a real sense of purpose. We have been rewarded enormously over the last six years from editorial articles to awards and special star ratings .

April 2012 saw the Guardian run our latest editorial piece featuring Partridge Lodge.

Kind Regards, Sarah and Aaran.

About Sarah Henry

About us, In 2007 my wife, Sarah, and I decided to move away from city life. We bundled up our four kids and the furniture in search of a sense of reality that we had both enjoyed during our own childhoods.

We found and bought an old run down dairy farm and set about renovating it with the plan to turn it into a rural retreat for guests to come and unwind close by to the majestic historic coast in Suffolk that we so loved ourselves.

This has and continues to be a family project and our boys have helped right the way through with innovative ideas, giving us a valuable kids perspective on what real spaces should be.

Our Holiday lets are secluded enough to feel freedom and the grounds relaxed enough to have a wander and take in all the wild life, including owls, woodpeckers, kingfishers and deer that inhabit our surroundings. We also have our own fair share of 'wonders' from the chickens (with great tasting real eggs for breakfast) a petting rabbit (which kids adore spending time with), to our tree house, tennis court and football area, to our boat house and fishing pond where a monster three pound eel was caught last year. (The Pike, however, continues to allude anglers alike). We hope there is something for all.

Slightly further afield there are stunning walks through the footpaths from Partridge Lodge which one way guide you to the beautiful Boulge Estate where lies, in a quiet secluded churchyard, Mr Edward Fitzgerald (translator of Omar Khayyam). Amble in the other direction and find yourself in Bredfield village itself, with a local pub, The Castle and the Village Shop to investigate.

Our latest venture's include facebook (a living history of life and holidays at Partridge Lodge). Our river kayak tours and weekend events (including guitar workshops, yoga seminars and Special Occassion hire).

Sarah Henry purchased this barn in 2007

Why Sarah Henry chose Woodbridge

We are idealy set amongst a rural peaceful idyl just outside Woodbridge, with a wonderful local community in Bredfield with its community shop, play ground and local pub with good food (its a lovely walk over a footpath from Partridge Lodge). Our lets have their own unique sence of style, space and independance here, with plenty of space in and around the grounds to explore.

Excellent stay at DairyHall.

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a fantastic week at DairyHall, we received a warm welcome from Sarah & the setting and facilities were excellent. There is so much to do in the area that a week is not enough, particularly with the tennis court on site & the lovely walks on the doorstep. It was hard to get my young nephew away from the grounds as he was enjoying the tree house and the freedom so much.
Having stayed in many cottages and barns over the years, Partridge Lodge is definitely up there with the best of them and I cannot imagine anyone not enjoying their time there and hope that I get to return.
Highly recommended.

Fantastic barn conversion and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Dairy Hall (with some friends in the Granary) over Christmas 2012 and we couldn't have asked for a better place. Sarah and Aaran were so welcoming to us, and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and set up for a dream Christmas holiday. Young children were not a problem, and there was so much space for them to run around, as well as feeding the rabbit and chickens (and collecting fresh eggs every morning). The location is a great base for exploring the surrounding Suffolk highlights - Woodbridge, Rendalsham Forest, Aldeburgh, Orford and Sutton Hoo all within easy driving distance. I would absolutely recommend Partridge Lodge to anyone considering a holiday in Suffolk. - Marianne, Brendan, Ian, Toshi, Eva (8), Bea (6), Kahu (3).

Autumn Break

  • 5 of 5
This was our fourth stay at a property at this location, having previously stayed in the Granary and the Farmhouse, so we are familiar with the setting and area. It was however our first stay in the Dairy Hall.

As expected from our previous experiences, the interior met expectations. It was clean and well equipped, although some might find the kitchen on the small side if catering for 8 (we were only four). The decor is not over-fussy, but is up to date yet not too minimalist. In our experience, Sarah tries hard to take good care of you and ensure you know what's what, both on site and nearby.

The site itself has a fair few activities and there are things for children to play with indoor and outside.

Woodbridge and Sutton Hoo are close, Bawdsey beach not much further, and Framlingham, Aldeburgh and Southwold all accessible. Autumn is not as good time of year to visit some of the above as late spring/summer, although we had a good time (and we had our own reasons for choosing this time of year).

We had a good lunch at The British Larder pub just outside Woodbridge (gastropub fare, and with playground in the garden). Also enjoyed the fireworks in Framlingham.

We set ourselves the challenge of providing all our self catering facilities with child friendly equipment that we know from our own experiences can lead to heavy and rather bulky packing which would be great to avoid.

The village of Bredfield is a lovely 10 minute walk along public footpaths, it has a wonderful village shop selling local produce, there is a play ground and a pub which serves real ales and is fast gathering acclaim for its food menu. The popular and pretty waterfront towns of Woodbridge, Sutton Hoo, Bawdsey, Orford, Aldeburgh and Snape with their boutiques, cafés, bistros and gastro-pubs are all within a short drive.

Just a few minutes drive from the property is award-winning Easton Farm Park which is perfect for toddlers and offers animal feeding, petting, egg collecting, horse and cart rides and mini train trips. 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.

Don't miss the Farmcafe and Farmshop in Marlesford (10mins away) which not only sells fabulous local produce for cooking at home but has an excellent cafe with space of kids to play and have been listed amongst the best brunch venues in the country by the likes of The Times and The Independent. Similarly high praise has been won by the Watermill café in Woodbridge and its excellent deli, which is brilliant for gourmet picnic supplies, seafood, good wines and local cheeses. The Crown in Woodbridge gets rave review for its gastro-pub and is well worth arranging a night of babysitting for.
