The Balancing Barn
The Balancing Barn in Suffolk is the first and still probably the most iconic of the houses available through Living Architecture group of upscale and unusual holiday lets. Their speciality is stunning contemporary architectural extravagances that most people wouldn't otherwise get the chance to experience, and this one, clad in silver tiles the barn is cantilevered and balanced over a ridge to give panoramic views over the surrounding woods, ponds and meadows. Sleeping up to 8 people, the Balancing Barn – not surprisingly one of the most unusual and unique holiday homes in Suffolk -– is situated very near the seaside village of Walberswick on the Suffolk coast – a relatively hidden part of the world that is well worth a long weekend break. Not only is there the beach at Walberswick itself, and its two excellent pubs, but you're close by Dunwich Heath and the Minsmere RSPB reserve and some spectacular coastal walks. You can also easily reach Southwold by taking the foot ferry across the Blyth river. Inside, the barn is spectacular, greatly influenced by Dutch design, with crisp, modern bedrooms, living room and kitchen, with clean lines and bright yet soothing colours, and the walls decorated by the paintings of Suffolk artists Constable and Gainsborough . A truly outstanding and very different place to spend a few days for a family or group of friends.
From around £1300 for a midweek stay out of season to just under £3000 per week for a full week in high season.
Open all year.
