The Barn on Suffolk’s Wilderness estate offers you the grand life beneath its vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. Flagstone floors come heated to encourage you to shake off your shoes. And you’ll want to stay barefoot as you pad across the soft, luxuriant grass to the heated pool and hot tub.
Filled with light and good living, this is a traditional timber barn that contrasts quaint and quirky furnishings with high-end luxuries. Freshen up in the morning in your wet room, then be coerced by coffee and croissants in the conservatory. A cook’s kitchen with range cooker makes meals into self-signed masterworks.
Fire up a family film night in the sitting room before bed, with its cosseted cosiness, eclectic soft furnishings and discreet technology. Prepare to do battle for the master, whose four-poster keeps watch over its own elegant sitting room. In the morning, potter out to your own private terrace. This is luxury you could get used to.
