“Great quality accomodation in beautiful location”
Reviewed 7 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The Barn is in a small complex in a wildlife reserve with beautiful walks and runs.

The accommodation was well presented, homely and with well equipped kitchen.

Communication with the owner was easy - very quick to reply.

We spent a lot of time looking at possible accommodation near Bury - we were very happy we chose Holm Oak Barn

Thank you for such a positive review, Lackford Lakes Barns is a great Suffolk get away and we're very lucky to be located outside beautiful Bury St Edmunds, not far from Cambridge and surrounded by a nature reserve, we're so pleased that you enjoyed the accommodation.

Located just outside Bury St Edmonds, Holm Oak Barn was easy to travel around the area.
We would consider going again in the future.

“Excellent Accommodation & Stunning Location”
Reviewed 22 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

If you want to get away from it all in top class self catering accommodation, this is the place for you!

We booked a long weekend away (Friday to Monday) with our 2 sets of elderly parents (all in their 80s) as they had not had a holiday for a while. The accommodation at Holm Oak Barn was ideal - all on one level and all bedrooms with their own en-suites.

The place was spotless and décor/fittings high spec. We couldn't have asked for more. (It would be nice to say it was a home from home, but I think it was better than home!!).

We took a few nice walks around Lackford Lakes, with hides to overlook the lakes and watch the wildlife. We were very lucky with the weather (wall to wall sunshine), but whatever the weather, I am sure it would not spoil such lovely surroundings.

I can't wait to return!

“Christmas stay”
Reviewed 31 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Lovely place, with all amenities. Loved watching the birds on the feeder especially the pheasant who stayed around for a good hour just outside the window. Christmas decorations were a lovely touch too!

“Festive feast”
Reviewed 24 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We had a wonderful stay, hosts made it very festive, with decorations and a tree. We all had a wonderful early Christmas with family. Really warm and fire almost not needed. Well equipped, and everyone enjoyed their own bathroom. The nature reserve was a hit and we saw starling murmurations, awesome sight.
Would highly recommend a stay here. Thank you to the hosts.

Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the Christmas decorations. The starling murmuration is a spectacular sight at this time of year, like spells being cast into the twilight of a winter sky.
