Eight Oaks Barn

Eight Oaks Barn is a grade two listed thatched, Oak clad Suffolk long barn originally named Ufford Hall Barn which has historical links back to the Eighteenth century.

The barn has been left completely open in the centre to create a large vaulted living area in the centre of the barn, with the original threshing aisle also retained and the bedroom accommodation in wings at either end with hand crafted Oak staircases at either end leading the first floor bedrooms.

The central vaulted area of the barn is enhanced by a polished concrete floor which provides an agricultural atmosphere and enhances the colours of the exposed timbers. The polished concrete floor is enhanced by the presence of underfloor heating throughout the ground floor creating a beautifully warm texture under foot.
