Okay, You've Convinced Me, Where Is This Magical Barn?

The Balancing Barn stands on the edge of a tranquil nature reserve a few miles inland from the Suffolk coast, near the historic town of Walberswick.

Whether you’re young or old, it’s an area rich in opportunities, including walking, birdwatching, cycling, swimming and sailing, restaurants, pubs and teashops.

Clad in silver tiles and looking like something out of a 1950's American science fiction movie, the house dramatically cantilevers over the landscape, providing views from its huge panoramic windows over nearby woods, ponds and meadows and, sleeping 8 people means that costs are incredibly reasonable.
