amazing traditional Suffolk Barn that the current owners have gone to great lengths to preserve; this includes reinforcement of the timber frame and new weather-boarded elevations; the roof is part tiled and part corrugated.

To one end of the barn is a store area and adjoining it is a wood store and workshop. In the furthest part of the formal gardens lies an octagonal wooden summer house.
