Iken Barns offers more than the very best in Self Catering Accommodation with a host of events and activities on your door step there is something to keep everyone entertained! We have eight converted barns overlooking the Alde estuary a view many believe to be one of the best in England, this is a truly magical area.
Each barn has been sympathetically renovated and furnished to give guests a comfortable, luxurious experience during their stay with the added benefit of freshly laundered linen and towels for every guest.
'Hardy's Barn' our beautiful function room is available for celebrations, launches, meetings and functions. Situated up on the cliff looking down over the River Alde and across to the famous St Botolphs Church, it creates the perfect setting for intimate wedding celebrations, small gatherings and corporate meetings. We have a number of functions and events on throughout the year, keep an eye on our 'what's on' pages and click here to view our quarterly newsletter for regular updates.
Our 'Iken be active' pages offer you the chance to do more than just relax during your stay here. There are extensive footpaths, tracks and quiet roads for walkers, horse riders and cyclists and a chance to explore the river our Thames Sailing Barge 'Dinah'.
The Suffolk Heritage coastline offers many places of historical interest. For bird watchers avocets, curlews and marsh harriers to name a few can be spotted locally. Alternatively you may just want to stay on site and relax with a book. Whatever you choose we are confident you will return home fully recharged.
If you have a well behaved dog we are happy for you to bring them along too. With endless walking locally you will both be disappointed if your four legged friend is left at home!
We are surrounded by fantastic restaurants, pubs and gastro pubs so you will never go hungry, most eateries offer locally sourced food but if you would rather have a chef come and cook for you in your barn let us know and we will put you in touch with the right people for what you require.
Although Iken is only a few minutes from good road networks (The A12) you will forget about the fast pace of everyday life and soon feel completely relaxed here.
Whatever your reason for visiting we are confident you will love it here.
