  • "This is just perfect."

    It is so spacious - so light and bright and beautifully warm. We loved the high ceilings with the fantastic beams. It has been so thoughtfully renovated and the surroundings are just so peaceful. Our dog loved the huge field which forms part of the garden and it is perfectly enclosed. We would recommend this property wholeheartedly.

  • "Another wonderful visit to Mousehall Barn, like home from home."

    A lovely welcome with the hamper & flowers. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed a relaxing week with BBQ and brought our croquet set which was great fun in the garden. Our two Pointers love the freedom to run and play in the garden. Looking forward to a return visit next year!

  • "Yet another fantastic holiday at this idyllic converted barn."

    It is so incredibly peaceful, I cannot recommend Mousehall Barn highly enough. If you want peace and quiet, secure garden for your dogs to roam and play. This is the place to go.

    Thank you so much for your very kind feedback! We are delighted that you had a lovely break. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely weeks stay at Mousehall Barn and the weather was fantastic for us to enjoy the large garden."

    Our Great Dane thoroughly enjoyed running around the garden. We loved watching the squirrels in the garden. Very peaceful village. Thank you for the lovely flowers and hamper on arrival. If you enjoy a good Chinese then you have to go to "TRONGS" in Ipswich 01473256833 we had lovely take-aways. Many thanks.

  • "We found this to be a perfect and luxurious base for exploring Suffolk."

    Everything we needed was here but the one overriding factor that we loved was its dog friendliness. If in your real life you live in a flat or apartment as we do, this place will be a revelation to your mutt. And if he is happy then we are relaxed too. We all loved it.

  • "We all had a great week in this lovely barn conversion, it has everything you need to a high standard."

    It is a great getaway location, with the large secure garden it makes for a fantastic stay for the dogs too, ours enjoyed exploring and looking for the pheasants when they decided to show. Lots of places to visit, Coast too, although we left the car alone on this occasion and just enjoyed the surroundings.

  • "An absolute gem of a place to stay, thank you."

    Anyone that wants a quiet peaceful rest, this is the place for you. The large garden was dog secure and was ideal for our border terrier, even he couldn't escape. We will certainly be back, if we are able to book a suitable date.

  • "Wonderful barn, to a high standard throughout."

    The decor had been thoughtfully selected to match a truly characterful barn conversion. Thanks to the owner for rectifying the one minor issue we had so promptly, much appreciated, as was the hamper and flowers on arrival. The secure grounds were excellent for our 2 pointers, who loved being able to roam and explore, as well as the chihuahua. And all less than 90 minutes from home. Would, and have recommended it already, truly a credit to the owners. Thanks for sharing this little piece of calm and tranquility.
