Why Eleanor de Goni Parks chose Badley
We loved living in Doves Barn, but when the children left home the property was far too big for us. It dates back to the 16th Century and has amazing authentic features and a magical atmosphere where you will feel immediately relaxed as you enter.
What makes this Barn unique
The property is semi rural with open spaces, countryside and beautiful views. Doves Barn is a very spacious property, so although we have up to 22 guests staying everyone has plenty of room to spend a quiet moment or join the party. We would recommend this property for all your special occasions from family celebrations, birthdays, Hen Parties, rural retreats (bird watching) or simply spend time at Doves Barn to relax and unwind. Please see Trip Advisor for all our great reviews from our valued guests.

Golf tour 2019
Our group have been going on a golf tour for the past 22 years and have stayed in types of accommodation.
Doves Barn certainly did not disappoint when it came to our 2019 trip to Suffolk. The accommodation was an excellent base from which we could access the golf courses that we were playing in and around Ipswich.
The accommodation is listed as able to sleep, 22. We were a party of 14 chaps and each had a separate bed, but some guys were not as fortunate as others, as they had to share rooms of different configurations.
The property provided all that we required in terms of space and amenities from the hot tub, bbq, pool table and Sky Tv.
All my communications with the owners, prior to arrival and during our stay were always promptly dealt with. On this point I must say that on the day of our arrival, as we were all arriving at different times, the group were especially grateful to be able to arrive early and drop off belongings before we went off to play golf.
In summary the property was perfect for our requirements, the hosts were very friendly and helpful when required and I would happily recommend Doves Barn to anybody looking for a large property in the Ipswich area.
All the hens had a wonderful weekend - the hot tub, the comfy beds, the whole house was delightful. We would love to go back!
Attractive barn with impressive space and very good facilities. Hot tub, pool table and table tennis were the star attractions for our large multi-age family group. Owners are very helpful.
Thank you Mike for your review, we would love to see you again.
The pictures do not do it justice!

Well maintained, well equipped, clean barn conversion
Celebrated our Golden Wedding here with all our family and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We arrived on the Friday afternoon to be greeted by the owner who showed us around and made us feel very welcome. Plenty of logs provided for the wood burner and a lovely hamper waiting for us. Although the weather was bitterly cold the barn was very warm and inviting.
Thank you for your lovely review of Doves Barn in Suffolk.
We were thrilled that you and your partner chose Doves Barn to celebrate your Golden Wedding Anniversary.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here with us and that you found the barn warm in such frosty weather, the underfloor heating and wood burners really do throw out some heat.
We enjoyed meeting you and your family and we do hope to meet you all again very soon.
