    The venue met our needs perfectly for a group ranging in age from 15 months to 95 years! Everything we could expect was provided and the host was excellent, nothing was too much trouble and he stayed in contact throughout. Thoroughly recommend!

    Excellent for large groups or families. Plenty hot water, heating you control yourself. East walk to pub and shop. Need a car to appreciate the area

  • "We were recommended by friends to go to Quill Farm Barn for a family celebration and we were delighted that we did."

    It was perfect for all twelve of us and most traveled by car but several came from London by train and it was great that Wickham Market station was just three minutes away by car. On arrival we found the property spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Richard, the owner popped in and was very welcoming and said we could contact him if we had any problems.

  • "Overall it is a very sociable space for a family get together."

    There were a few maintenance issues which included the microwave sparking inside, which was replaced very quickly by the maintenance guy and some of the cooking utensils need replacing eg. The chopping boards, spatulas and frying pans, also there were only three tea towels. The oven was quite grubby and smelt of stale fat and some cooking pots had to be cleaned by us before we could use them. The bedrooms are a good size as are the bathrooms, and well presented, with the exception of one bed, when it was stripped, the mattress protector was quite stained. The tennis court and the equipment provided in were very popular with our grandchildren.

  • "A lovely place to stay in a beautiful setting."

    Richard the owner was very helpful and the barn was very well equipped with everything we needed including baby cots and high chair. Loads of space for the kids for run around and ample bedrooms to fit everyone very comfortably. Love this place and a great time for the memory bank.

  • "We had a brilliant stay at Quill Farm Barn and would definitely recommend."

  • "Fantastic property, we were a party of 10 Cousin's and our ages ranged from 80 to 71, the property provided great facilities for us."

    The weather was fantastic and we made good use of the BBQ. The surrounding areas of Southwold, Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and Felixstowe are well worth a visit. We all enjoyed our visit to Quill Farm Barn

  • "The Barn is in a superb location - Sutton Hoo, Aldeburgh, Dunwich and Framingham are a short drive away."

    The tennis court was a huge attraction for both children and adults ( the supplied first aid kit was appreciated!). Plenty of interesting walks in the area although the public footpaths are not well maintained. The Duck Inn in Campsee Ashe serves excellent food and the children loved the adjacent playground. The Co-op and butchers in Wickham Market met all our catering needs. The Barn was well equipped with crockery and cutlery. The ONLY criticism was the lack of a 2nd indoor communal space with a TV !

  • "This was our second year here, as we liked it so much and it is the ideal property for a multi generational family group of 8 adults, 3 children and a baby, plus two dogs."

    Spacious and very well equipped. Large, safe garden. Quiet location, but very convenient for exploring Suffolk. We would recommend sandy Southwold beach for a day out, as well as Jimmy’s Farm, which was a great hit with all ages. Sunday lunch at local pub, The Duck, was very enjoyable, with friendly service and there is a play area attached for the little ones. We had a couple of small maintenance problems which were duly reported and sorted out speedily. Highly recommended.

  • "Quill Farm Barn is an ideal venue for larger family get togethers or group of friends."

    We were a party of 13 and found the property well equipped and spacious for the four families making up our group. There's outdoor seating areas and vast grounds which enhance the stay by giving a sense of space and greenery. We made extensive use of the tennis court (some racquets and balls provided) throughout the day and into the evening. The outdoor BBQ area (sheltered) was ideal for the day the rain came, yet was warm enough to still be outside to cook, eat and enjoy the scenery. The kitchen is well equipped and Nespresso machine an essential piece of kit. Unlike some large properties there was enough crockery and plates for max groups and serving plates for BBQs. Inside the kitchen are two fridges and a freezer but the additional fridge freezer out back was much appreciated when the Sainsbury delivery arrived with a week's worth of food for 13 people! Situated in amongst the greenery means that there is no noise pollution and equally, as you are not overlooked we were able to let the children run about outside, without worrying about annoying other holiday makers. With regards to parking there really is ample room for multiple vehicles (we had 8 at one point). Only downside we found was a weak WiFi signal -especially with so many devices attached. One or two devices attached worked fine but with a larger group it is problematic if everyone is on phones/tablets. The property is a 20min walk along a well used trial from Wickham Market where you can buy all you need from the CO-OP as well as visit tea rooms and other useful shops -including hardware in case you need it. Best beach was Southwold approx 35mins away, lots of golden sand, interesting attractions along the pier and plenty of shops for eating, drinking and gift shopping. Another favourite was a visit to Sutton Hoo approx 15mins away which entertained our young family for the whole day (free for National trust members) We met the owners during our visit who were keen to ensure we were happy with the property and how to contact them should any issue arise. We were also given various local recommendations which was appreciated. I would definitely recommend this property to families/family groups for the space, safety, tennis courts, amenities, playpark within walking distance and short car trips to places of interest.

  • "We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Quill Farm Barn with the family."

    The accommodation was excellent with a beautiful garden and views. The owner was an attentive host who made us feel very welcome. The barn was perfect for allowing our large family to spend time together in the open plan living space and the numerous bathrooms and toilets saved any queueing! It was clear that this barn had been meticulously planned to allow comfortable living for a large group of people - absolutely perfect for our family celebration! We enjoyed a great day at Aldeburgh beach and some local walks as recommended by the owner. The tennis court was fantastic for allowing the children (and adults!) to burn some energy and the outdoor dining area was a great space for spectators to enjoy a drink or two. We would love to return to Quill Farm Barn and highly recommend to all!

    Bit dicey talking a walk with so many people and kids walking on the roads, couldn't walk through the fields or on the trails as had a pushchair with us. Pub down the road was lovely, with a great playground for all the kids to run around. Really enjoyed our stay.

Talking of meals, these can be whipped up in the beautifully curated kitchen which has everything needed for the designated chef to be able to prepare delicious food for the whole party.

There is an alternative social space on the galleried landing where you will find an open-plan layout with chairs, a bean bag and a foot stool, making it the ideal spot for chilling out away from the hustle and bustle of the main house.

The outside offers as much potential for socialising as the inside with extensive gardens to explore, a raised terrace area for relaxing on and even a tennis court!

Why not fire up the barbecue and really make an occasion of it?

Following a quick refreshing shower or soak in the bath, you’re good to go and ready to explore the wonders of the surrounding area.
