Accommodation overview: Traditional barn in a unique location overlooking the tidal Alde Estuary. Iken is a reputed base of Boudicca and the marauding Iceni tribes who made good use of the commanding position on the south side of the Alde Estuary. Later, in 869AD, a Viking sailing fleet destroyed the 7th Century monastery at Iken. In the 19th Century sailing barges used the river to trade corn and coal between Snape, London and the east coast ports. Now, you will see the occasional pleasure boat whilst taking in the highly regarded SSSI wildlife habitat and the stunning estuary scenery. Views span from the 7th Century St Butolphs Church, standing on a promontory of higher ground, to the former maltings at Snape which are now vibrant with the sounds of the famous concert hall. Estuary Barn is the first floor (ground floor Bay View Barn (sleeps 6) ) of this traditional brick and tile barn, which no longer contains the Suffolk Punch horses that worked the surrounding farmland. The barn has been totally rebuilt retaining the many exciting original features, including the exposed roof timbers. The barn has been arranged to provide exceptionally spacious and well-equipped first floor accommodation with all the main rooms overlooking the stunning estuary.
