The Balancing Barn

The Balancing Barn is next available for the weekend of 15- 18 December, see here.

For dates in 2018, see here.

The Balancing Barn stands on the edge of a tranquil nature reserve a few miles inland from the Suffolk coast, near the historic towns of Walberswick and Aldeburgh.  Clad in elegant silver tiles, the house dramatically cantilevers over the landscape, providing views from its huge panoramic windows over woods, ponds and meadows. The house was designed by the Dutch firm MVRDV, who have won a world-wide reputation for the ingenuity, playfulness and comfort of their designs.

The Balancing Barn sleeps 8 people. See more photos and find out more about the accommodation and what's included.
