The Barn at Assington

Based on a farm a few miles out of Sudbury, The Barn is a community of small businesses, including a cafe and restaurant; a farm shop, gifts and interiors and a florist.

In addition to a shopping trip in beautiful countryside you can also explore nearby Arger Fen & Spouse’s Vale, an ancient woodland with a mix of trees including oak, ash, field maple, holly, crab apple, superb large alder and hazel stools. This reserve is also one of only a few ancient woodlands in Suffolk with wild cherry. Arger Fen and Spouse's Vale, Suffolk

The best time to visit is during the bluebell season in the spring. The display is fabulous and if you listen carefully, you may also catch a song or two from the woodland birdsĀ  – listen out for black cap, whitethroat and the willow warbler.

Assington also has a lovely self-catering cottage on site, if you want to make a weekend of it.
