Stylish 5 Bedroom Barn Conversion With Hot Tub Option

This beautifully converted barn dating back to the 16th Century is located in Pages Green - a secluded part of the tranquil village - Wetheringsett.

Old Oak Barn is accessed through a chunky solid oak door with a natural stone entrance hall. Not only will barn enthusiasts get excited over the traditional, hand-crafted, Suffolk latched doors, timber floors, massive supporting beams and distinctive floor to ceiling windows flooding light into this open-plan living and dining space, but they will also note the warm, friendly and welcoming character of the building.

The living space features dimable designer lights, leather sofas and a hearty wood burning stove. The large bespoke kitchen boasts a beautiful stone floor, thick luxurious granite work tops, traditional butler sink, cosy corner breakfast area and all the high-end appliances you would expect from a quality barn conversion.

About marcus morley

Hi and Welcome to Old Oak Barn ....The photo shows the state the property was in when I first saw it and decided to take on the challenge of converting it into a beautiful dwelling!

marcus morley purchased this barn in 2010

Why marcus morley chose Wetheringsett-cum-Brockford

I bought this barn as my family live a couple of villages away also in a converted barn, so with their experience and a good builder, it gave me comfort to turn it into something special and be closer to them when I turn my back on the hustle and bustle of London.

What makes this barn unique

The Barn is a very special place hidden down a narrow country lane with few disturbances! Despite the frame being from the 16th century, it has all the facilities you would expect from a modern house but oozes character! You can enjoy a meal at the oak 10 seater trestle dining table, listen to your music on the fantastic sonos system or light a fire and sip a drink whilst staring at the flickering flames....it's up to you....The sleeping arrangements are such that you can have 5 double beds or switch 3 of the rooms into twins tailoring to the requirements of your group. If you would like to treat yourself to a hot tub during your stay, a purpose built patio area can also accommodate your needs - please let me know in advance of your booking if you would like to include a 5-6 person hot tub.

Beautifully converted barn with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The barn is beautiful, from the moment you step into the property you know it is going to be great. The bedrooms are lovely, as are the bathrooms. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need for 10 people. The boys enjoyed the pool in the garage too. One evening we lit the fire; it was not really needed as the underfloor heating was so efficient, but the fire looked so good. Only one thing to perhaps be considered. The upstairs bedrooms - the floors creaked so badly when anyone moved that it woke people downstairs. This was in the bedroom in the far end of the property. We live in an old property which creaks, and so know the problems, but it really does need some sort of soundproofing. Other than that, it was perfect. Thank you so much.

One of the best properties we've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of uni friends who've been going away together, with our families, for the past 28 years and this is definitely one of the best properties we've stayed in.

The barn was well-maintained and comfortable; the conversion is interesting and the middle section of the barn is bright and airy.

One of the plus points when booking was the fireplace as two of our number love making fires but in fact it was so warm in the house that we didn't need to light it!

When we arrived the kettle wasn't working so we phoned the owner and he asked us to buy another when we were out food shopping.

The barn is quite secluded in a small village so we had to drive quite a distance to get to places but that wasn't a problem and we did go out for a local walk straight from the house on one of the days.

All in all a very enjoyable holiday.

Great family break!

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a family break. From 86 year old nanny down to my 7 year old daughter and family members of all ages in between, everyone enjoyed the weekend thoroughly. Spacious enough for you not to feel on top of each other but areas where you can all be cosy together. A lovely walk to the Black Horse on Sunday morning and a fun Saturday evening dinner around the cosy kitchen table. Mornings in the sun out in the garden with a cuppa, snuggled around the tv in the afternoon, playing pool in the games room. Thoughtful touches from the owner on arrival (wine and chocolates), fantastic Sonos playlist (I'm a big fan of music playing in the background), beautiful galleried staircase, peaceful, lovely views. Little things that add up to give special memories. Will definitely be back again with the family.

Fantastic !!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we have just had staying at Old Oak Barn,10 family members so comfortably accommodated for in such a lovely place.

Marcus has very thoughtfully created a warm,bright and spacious holiday home that is luxurious but so relaxing,a huge kitchen for family breakfasts and a beautiful dining table where we enjoyed sitting together of an evening,having dinner then playing games,such fun.An open plan lounge area,beautiful lighting and furnishings.The bedrooms are very spacious and the beds extremely comfortable.

The pool table and dartboard were a real bonus for the younger members of the group and the huge bath a hit with the ladies who loved a bubbly soak.

Plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas,would highly recommend a day trip to Southwold via Walberswick ferry,a visit to the pier a must.

We will all be highly recommending the barn to friends and family....thank you Marcus,you have created a fantastic holiday home.

Ideal for family get togethers - Quiet but close enough to local facilities

  • 5 of 5

Very impressive accommodation with plenty of room. Comfortable beds and a super kitchen which we used for most of our meals (9 adults).

The nearest village of Debenham has a Co-op and newsagent and two pubs. We used the Black Horse at Thornden and the food was fine.

Use Tesco for a home delivery, it saved us a lot of time.

Would we go again - Yes

Lovely property - well equipped and ideal for large group of people.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this converted barn to others. Ideal for a large group but plenty of space to have privacy and you're not tripping over each other.
