Inspirational venue sleeping 22 for youth and school groups for education, music and activities, near Ipswich

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Tudor Barn, Lavenham, Sudbury, Suffolk, sleeps 10-22 in 3 bedrooms.

Ancient, whacky, quirky, beautiful, unusual, inspirational ... Our huge Tudor barn provides very comfortable but highly unusual accommodation in which groups can, if they wish, step back into the 16th century. (The separate Old Brooder bunkhouse provides additional sleeping for 20.)

Sleep in oak four-poster beds, truckle beds and box beds and feast at oak banquet tables. And if you want, dress up and go Tudor for an evening - eat off wooden platters, learn to dance – and play games -Tudor style! More bedrooms sleep 6+ in adjacent farmhouse.

Outdoor adventure, eco-challenges, WWII & Tudor history days. The 500-acre environmentally friendly farm is an outdoor classroom to explore, orienteer around, pond dip, tree hug, study insects, build dens, metal detect and much more. And if it rains you can carry on indoors in the massive barn space - basket-weave, whittle hazel, paint, sing, dance, make lanterns, or study flints, pottery and WWII artefacts in the little farm museum.

You can use our quiet farm as a base to do your own thing or we can provide guidance, support, tutors and help design activities or local itineraries that suit your particular needs for midweek

• Day only
• Accommodation only or
• Activity breaks with accommodation, tailor-made to suit curriculum topics or just fun, confidence- & team-building days away from school

We grow arable crops, flower-rich grassland, happy pigs and wild game, ancient hedges, woodland, ponds and lots of wildlife! We have Norman castle earthworks and prehistoric, Roman and medieval farm finds. An annual regional or national winner of the Wildlife Trusts’ Wildlife Watch Award for six years, and 16 years of hosting and teaching on school visits.

Minimise your carbon and water footprint! We have an award-winning environmental policy – the wood-burner barn uses hedge-coppice firewood, we avoid packaging wherever possible, we recycle and compost, we encourage you to use your feet and our fleet of bicycles.
