  • "This is our second time at Jacko’s Barn and we had a lovely restful stay."

    The barn is cosy and welcoming and a great place to relax. It is well placed to visit a lot of different area’s, our 2 dogs loved Dunwich beach and forest. We had good meals at local pubs, and Harleston has a good selection of takeaways if you don’t want to cook! We will definitely be booking again.

    The property was spotless and very well equipped, there were all the essentials you need. Milk, tea, coffee, sugar and lovely biscuits but also washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc all the things that you tend to forget. The Barn is well situated to visit lots of places, we liked the area and will definitely be booking again! It was excellent for our two dogs and the garden was a good size and fully enclosed.

  • "The Barn provided a warm, cosy atmosphere."

    I would say that it wouldn't be able to accommodate more than 6x people. Kitchen was modern and well equipped. Oven although modern, can be a bit tricky to use! Small lounge area with a TV. Suite is worn but comfortable. Bedrooms are presented well and have ample lighting and basic. Courtyard has pebbles, a seating area & drying facility. It's not bad for dogs to mooch around in. The Owners have land and will allow a paddock to be used for exercising dogs! Bear in mind that the area outside of the property, on the main road, there are no street lights and only pavements intermittently! ( I couldn't walk my dog at night and the road is quite busy, day and night)! You would need a car/bus to access tourist attractions. Also to access shops and petrol garages. There is a cafe etc.,that you can walk to from the Barn. The Owners were friendly and approachable.

    The place is so cosy, comfortable & clean and from the moment we parked up we felt very welcome (even though our little furry friend was a little excited & noisy!). The location is ideal to explore the surrounding Suffolk/Norfolk border and a short trip to the beaches of Lowestoft, Yarmouth & Southwold. Thanks for a relaxing short stay, we’ll definitely look to book again soon!

    Cottage had everything you need for a short stay, friendly pub within easy walking distance. Only 2 slight negatives, the signpost at the end of the drive could of been clearer, (we drove past it twice!!), and the village has no shop (despite Sykes website saying it had one). Would definitely recommend.

  • "Comfortable cottage with everything we needed."

    All in good working order except for kettle which was replaced by Ian the next day, also TV remote wasn’t working properly so we only had limited use of TV. Very dog friendly with cover for sofa and nice enclosed gravel courtyard. Beds comfy and nice bedding and towels etc. We asked for the singles to be made into king as the other bed said double, but it looked like the ‘double’ was a king size anyway Good location, lots of places in easy reach. The barn needs better signposting off the main road and the track to it is beginning to need some attention. Shower had great water flow but was fixed way too high on wall, needed an adjustable height for the shower head. I had to hold the shower head for a decent shower. Dishwasher, washing machine, oven, fridge, microwave all in good condition and working order. Lighting in bathroom needs looking at as not bright enough for shaving etc, there is a light up mirror but was so dim you could hardly tell it was on. Hairdryer provided but no sockets near mirrors, just needs an extension cable leaving in bedrooms. Overall we enjoyed our stay, Ian was very friendly when we needed him. I would recommend this place to anyone.

  • "We had a lovely relaxing week at Jackos barn, our westie was like a different dog and she was so much more relaxed not having anything to bark at!"

    ! The owner Ian was a lovely man (we didn't see Laura) he was happy to stop for a chat when we saw him but left us alone to enjoy our holiday, the Black Swan pub, which is dog friendly and the landlord came out and gave our dog some treats, they had some lovely ales to sample (I recommend the Wherry Ale) , was only a few mins walk away across the main road which is a B road and not to busy, there is another pet friendly pub in worwell (down the road next to the garden/cafe bistro) there is a nice walk you can go down to stretch your legs and the dogs, ask Daniel in the pub and he will tell you which way to go for a stroll (there is a circuit you can do that leads you straight back to the car and it isn't too long) after you have had a drink and in my case a chocolate fudge cake with custard, well it had to be done as it was my birthday . The barn itself was lovely and comfy and had everything we needed including a basketful of towels for our dog. Lovely and quiet (the hum of the traffic didn't bother us or our dog at all and you couldn't hear it once inside) . We got a morrisons delivery to the barn twice on our stay and they found us easily. The use of the owners paddocks was a bonus. The underfloor heating in the barn was lovely and our dog liked to lay on it. There was a welcome pack of biscuits and milk and sachets of kenco coffee (the coffee jar was also full of nescafe sachets) and cappuccinos and the tea jar was full and the sugar bowl to so we had a nice cuppa and a biscuit while we unpacked and waited for the shopping to be delivered. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a nice quiet and relaxing holiday but with a main road close by to explore the local area. Regarding finding the barn itself if you come in from A143 and then turn into the B1062 then you go about 30 secs along that road(maybe a bit less) then over the little white fenced bridge and it's the first turning on the left, literally - 5secs , there is a black sign that says Laurian Barn (that is the owners barn) and a sign in white for Dove Barn (you can see this sign much more clearly) go down the single dirt track and you will then see the sign for Jackos Barn. Happy holidays everyone you won't be disappointed I can assure you.

Watch out for the small sign saying “Laurian’s Barn” and another sign saying “Dove Cottage” down a dirt track off the main road. If you see Flixton Cemex Quarry on your right you’ve gone way too far! Suffolk is a great place to visit and the Aviation Museum is a stone’s throw away from the Barn and well worth a look.

  • "A lovely barn conversion attached to the owners property with its own courtyard garden for relaxing in."

    The property had all the all amenities you needed,washing machine, dishwasher etc, the lounge was very comfortable and everything was very clean and well presented. there were an abundance of towels for both us and also for the dog which was a nice thought. the hosts Laura and Ian were very welcoming and informative but otherwise invisible during our stay. A nice touch were the biscuits sweets and milk waiting for us when we arrived.The property sits in nine acres of the owners land leading down to the river in which we could walk our dog. A lovely area the local village hosts a pub which serves average but expensive meals though there are other better valued venues in the locality ( although you need a car to reach them), the village has a community wooded area behind the Church which provides a lovely shaded walk to enjoy. There is a small aviation museum in the locality that is worth a visit also Framlingham Castle and the coastal areas from Gt Yarmouth to Southwold are all within 40/50 minutes drive on very quiet roads that are a pleasure to drive on. We loved our stay and would not hesitate to return again in the future one of the best Sykes cottages we have stayed in.

    There is a pub within walking distance with a lovely stream and a lovely little dog walk through a small wooded area. There is also a farmers shop and cafe within walking distance with lovely gardens where you can sit with your dog. Absolutely ideal.

  • "From the welcome as we arrived to the willingness to help in any way during the week to the peace and quiet of the Barn everything made our week so enjoyable."

    From extra towels provided by the door for the dog to milk in the fridge and sweets and biscuits on the table this was 5 star service at the very least. Easily the best accommodation we have stayed in for a long long time. The quiet roads made for pleasant drives, the Aviation Museum (free entry) just two or three miles along the road brought back so many memories and we could have spent the whole day there easily. Less than an hour from the coast with plenty of places to visit around you do need a car but parking was easy and reasonably priced in most towns and free in some.
