About Leigh Barnes
My name is Leigh Barnes and I own and manage the properties. I was born on the same site where our timber lodges are sited, but now live the other end of Garboldisham village with my husband and we really enjoy the area we live in. As we live close to our properties, we are always at hand for any queries or advice on places to visit. We aim to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Leigh Barnes purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Leigh Barnes chose Garboldisham
We bought our timber lodges as its just the ideal place for peace and quiet and it means we can share our 9 acre site for others to enjoy.

Charming, well presented with lots of thought gone in to it in a peaceful surrounding
We wanted a hide away for a weekend, while we worked, and that is what we got.
Peaceful surroundings with lots of nature to watch, we were able to work and relax at the same time.
We were even able to stretch our legs in the 9 acres of woodland walking and spent some time in the bird hide.
Everything we needed was on hand. The cabin was well insulated and quiet and even made us think about the way we look at recycling
We will defiantly be back
That's great you enjoyed your stay and that everything was ok for you during your stay and I look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Brambles is a home away from home.
Brambles has everything you need to either stay out and relax or to use as a base for whatever you’re doing in the surrounding area. Leigh is a marvellous host - couldn’t be more helpful - and the village of Garboldisham is a real community should you choose to get involved. Thank you so much Leigh.
Thank you and so glad you all enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully see you again in the future.
