Bunkhouse
Youth group bunkhouse accommodation sleeping 20, with flexible catering options and tuition available, near Sudbury

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Old Brooder Bunkhouse, Lavenham, Suffolk, sleeps 4-20 in 4 bedrooms.

Available from mid-February.

The Old Brooder Bunkhouse, sleeping 20, is situated down a quiet farm track but within 3 miles of historic Lavenham, 1.25 hrs from London by train and 1 hr from Stansted airport. It is peacefully surrounded by environmentally-friendly farmed countryside, with Grade II* listed hall farmhouse and aisled barns.

These bunkhouse rooms are ideal for teams on tour, school groups visiting nearby Kentwell Hall or the coast, or as overflow from our Tudor barn for large residential groups (combined total 40+ guests) studying the environment, art, photography or the Tudors or WWII here on our quiet farm.

Bring your tutors (or ask what tuition we can offer) and study farmland habitats; run catch-up art/photography sessions in a beautiful landscape with ancient barns, hedges, trees, wildflower meadows, ponds; enjoy the peace and write poetry; run, hug trees or orienteer; eat together inside, picnic or barbecue outside; play football or rounders on the meadows; or ping-pong, badminton or table football. Ask us about the massive Tudor barn for dance, yoga, drama and concert space.

Beyond, you can explore the local medieval Wool Towns Duke of Edinburgh Award style on footpaths or cycle the peaceful village roads of the South Suffolk Cycle Route (we have bikes), hire boats (canoe/kayak) on the River Stour, Go Ape in Thetford Forest, or visit the Suffolk coast.

Newly kitted out, we've tried to be really practical with the sleeping space. There is an upstairs bedroom that sleeps 8 (conventional beds) and downstairs a bunk-bedroom that sleeps 8, and two twin-bunk bedrooms for those who want more privacy or for supervising staff - all extra-wide bunk beds with thick comfy mattresses. There are four showers and four loos, including a downstairs wet shower room for less mobile guests. We can unpack a supermarket delivery, organise catering or you can do it all yourself.
