Sarah or Aaran Henry
We had a great time it was so relaxing and an incredible place for anyone to stay. The barn is beautiful with loads of space it was brilliant. Cooking facilites brilliant there is a garden bar Sarah and Aaron are amazing! my kids absolutley loved it i would highly recomend them as hosts and their place to stay in. We went for a lovley walk up to Boulge Church there is som uch to do around there. We really had a great time. It was absolutley lovely staying in the barn i wish we could live there forever i think we would all be very happy!
Our third trip to Partridge Lodge: Relaxing and homely as ever. And so useful that they supply baby paraphernalia such as bouncy chairs, play mats etc! Our daughter loved visiting the chickens and playing in the grounds.
This was a surprise party for my husbands 40th with a whole bunch of friends. Our hosts Aaran and Sarah were incredibly hospitable and very helpful. I had quite a few deliveries before we turned up and they put everything away. I couldn't recommend this place more. It was very comfortable, everything we needed was there. Our guests all had a brilliant time, next time I think we will bring the kids as there is lots to offer.
A great location for family gatherings
We had a lovely weekend at the Dairy Hall for my mothers 80th Birthday,
The main space was perfect for a family gathering.
However the barn conversion has meant all the toilets are downstairs and there is very little sound insulation - so the early risers woke up the rest of the party.
We enjoyed the tennis court and the fresh eggs from the chickens.
Fun for all
The Dairy Hall was a great base for a week in Suffolk with 4 young grandchildren, one set of parents and ourselves. Having 15 month old twins, a 3 year old and and 8 year old we were able to keep them safe with stair gates at the bottom of each set of stairs, thank goodness. The garden was a real plus - the trampoline etc was great for all the girls and they loved playing outside.
One downside for us was the fact that both toilets were downstairs, not a real problem except during the night - if you are frequent night time visitor to the bathroom then may I suggest you take a torch as putting on the light in the bathroom also turns on the fan which does sound loud in the 'wee' small hours and can disturb the lighter sleepers.
If staying with young children please make sure you tell them the chickens do not lay their eggs at 5 am they wait until at least 9am, you may get some sleep then!! My favourite moment was when I saw the chickens had got out of their enclosure area and Aaron led them back up the drive, they followed him like sheep!!!
The 2 older children enjoyed crabbing Walberswick, we did take extra bacon for bait but needed to buy buckets and lines -take them if you have them at home.
Sarah was so enthusiastic and really wanted us to all have a great time, which we did. Thank you Sarah and Aaron
Lovely location and plenty of room
Nice family oriented converted barn with big space for large family gatherings and meals. Lots of local footpaths. If you are keen on cooking large family meals you may find the ratber small kitchen separated from second dishwasher/ fridge/ bar makes cooking big family meals a bit challenging
