About Janice Hogan
I grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland and my husband, Dave, is from Wales. I am documentary film director and Dave is a well-established photographer. We live in north London with our family, and Hollybush is our much-loved, get-away-from-it all, in the glorious Suffolk countryside.
Janice Hogan purchased this Barn in 2004
Why Janice Hogan chose Brampton
We stumbled across the barn while driving through the Suffolk countryside. At that point it was a near tumble-down wreck. The outer doors were held together by string, the cow's original trough was still intact. But you could immediately see that it would be a magnificent building once restored, and the setting was magical - miles of fields all around. Our reverie was suddenly interrupted by the farmer - accompanied by his son and shotgun! He thought we had come to steal the pantile tiles off the roof. One year later, our "dream" was complete and we've had many happy vacations there ever since.
What makes this Barn unique
Perfect location for hosting a large group of friends and/or family. There's enough room that everyone feels they have space. Ample room for children to run around safely, and quiet spots for adults to retreat to. Sunny evening on the patio overlooking the fields with a glass of wine are a perfect end to the day!

Loved it! Beautifully converted barn with plenty of space
Very friendly owners, stunning barn, beauty setting. Hassle free stay will come again
Brilliant Barn conversion!
The property itself is gorgeous, centred around a fantastic social space. The kitchen is huge and very well equipped. We celebrated my wife’s 30th here with close family and friends and had a great time. Only comment would be that one of the bedrooms isn’t really separated from that central part so if you are a light sleeper that can be an issue. Overall loved the property and the owners were very accommodating.
Stunning barn in beautiful settings
We stayed here for my husband and friends 40th birthday, 4 couples with children. From beginning to end we had an amazing experience staying at Holly Bush Barn! The photos on the site don’t do it any justice and we walked into the stunning open living area feeling the full wow effect! Every bedroom has comfortable bed and are beautifully decorated too!
Beautiful scenic views from every window!
Well equipped kitchen with everything you need in a house that caters for this amount of people!
Great location and 10 minutes drive from Southwolds Pier!
Home with the holiday blues!! We will be back :0)
Julie was so helpful leading up to our weekend and also when we arrived knowing everything we needed to know about the house and area!! Huge thank you!
We visited the barn recently for a family gathering. The barn accommodated us brilliantly. The enormous open spaces worked really well for our group.
Lovely converted barn for extended family holiday
We had a wonderful time in this characterful and well equipped converted barn. It seems to be miles from anywhere but in fact we found some lovely places within easy reach. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much - I’m so glad you had a relaxing time.
This place is fantastic! Was very close to a festival we were attending, and we couldn't have been luckier to find this place.
