An excellent situation on the banks of the River Alde estuary within easy reach of the local places of interest my wife and I had always wanted to visit - Orford (Ness), Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh, Southwold and many others. We stayed in the Old Mill House which is one of the smaller dwellings but very comfortable and well furnished. The...

Good quality accommodation with good facilities within the cottage (greenacres). We had a great time and enjoyed the scenery and atmosphere . Our main reason for picking the accommodation was that we could take our horses with us and we were not disappointed in the slightest. Our horses are competition horses and needed the break as much as we did....

We stayed for a week in Estuary Barn. Well appointed, great view, excellent value, friendly hosts. Water from their own well; excellent but low or even no pressure at times due to demand from the livery stable. (Top tip: don't flush the loo while someone's having a shower - ouch!) I am informed that a new, better pump is on...

Very comfortable, well equipped holiday properties in a superb location. The barns overlook the estuary in a very quiet location. There's a very pleasant walk along the estuary path to Snape Maltings.

Iken barns sits on the beautiful Alde estuary, in a great location for exploring the lovely Suffolk coast.
