About Janice Hogan
I grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland and my husband, Dave, is from Wales. I am documentary film director and Dave is a well-established photographer. We live in north London with our family, and Hollybush is our much-loved, get-away-from-it all, in the glorious Suffolk countryside.
Janice Hogan purchased this Barn in 2004
Why Janice Hogan chose Brampton with Stoven
We stumbled across the barn while driving through the Suffolk countryside. At that point it was a near tumble-down wreck. The outer doors were held together by string, the cow's original trough was still intact. But you could immediately see that it would be a magnificent building once restored, and the setting was magical - miles of fields all around. Our reverie was suddenly interrupted by the farmer - accompanied by his son and shotgun! He thought we had come to steal the pantile tiles off the roof. One year later, our "dream" was complete and we've had many happy vacations there ever since.
What makes this Barn unique
Perfect location for hosting a large group of friends and/or family. There's enough room that everyone feels they have space. Ample room for children to run around safely, and quiet spots for adults to retreat to. Sunny evening on the patio overlooking the fields with a glass of wine are a perfect end to the day!

Stunning barn in beautiful settings
We stayed here for my husband and friends 40th birthday, 4 couples with children. From beginning to end we had an amazing experience staying at Holly Bush Barn! The photos on the site don’t do it any justice and we walked into the stunning open living area feeling the full wow effect! Every bedroom has comfortable bed and are beautifully decorated too!
Beautiful scenic views from every window!
Well equipped kitchen with everything you need in a house that caters for this amount of people!
Great location and 10 minutes drive from Southwolds Pier!
Home with the holiday blues!! We will be back :0)
Julie was so helpful leading up to our weekend and also when we arrived knowing everything we needed to know about the house and area!! Huge thank you!
Lovely converted barn for extended family holiday
We had a wonderful time in this characterful and well equipped converted barn. It seems to be miles from anywhere but in fact we found some lovely places within easy reach. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much - I’m so glad you had a relaxing time.
This place is fantastic! Was very close to a festival we were attending, and we couldn't have been luckier to find this place.
- Tons of sleeping room with high quality beds, pillows and linens.
- Fully equipped kitchen with literally every gadget you could need to cook, including an outdoor grill
- Lots of space to spread out and relax
- Easy to get to, both by car or by train (walking distance from the station)
- Super accommodating owner
Beautiful countryside views, especially at sunset
I would not hesitate to stay here again!
Amazing Barn, well equipped and we loved it
The owners and caretaker have thought of everything. There were 10 of us staying for a friends wedding, and we all loved our visit to the Barn. So welcoming and a stunning building with lots of charm.
Really recommend staying here.
Amazing space beautiful setting
Beautiful property beautifully presented throughout! Kitchen very very well equipped . A fun space for families and groups alike. Beds fabulous in fact all furnishings fabulous. Fire pit such a bonus in the evening outside . Lots of space outside lovely walks . Southwold 6 miles away is beautiful! A truly lovely Barn In a lovely area!
An immaculate property in peaceful surroundings, perfect for large groups
We were a large family group staying at the property to attend a funeral.
The property was exactly as we had hoped. It offers a large living/dining area so we had space to socialise and share memories as well as a snug room for those who wanted some quiet time and to watch the football!
The property is immaculate, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is extremely well equiped with high quality appliances. The surroundings are peaceful and very beautiful helped by the fact that we had perfect weather. We spent a lovely evening around the fire pit.
The owner and the housekeeper were both very helpful and there were lots of little touches such as fresh milk, tea, coffee, toiletries in the bathrooms and also logs and firelighters for the fire or fire pit. They had even set the channel on the TV in the snug room up ready to watch the World Cup football.
There are a lot of steps within the property which adds to the character but could be a drawback to folks with young children. Bearing this in mind, I would have no hesitation in highly recommending this property to others.
Southwold beach front is approx 7 miles away by car, with its array of fashionable shops and restaurants, and award-winning beach and pier.
Beccles market town is a 10 minute drive away, with supermarkets, local shops, outdoor swimming pool, and the beginning of the Norfolk broads for boating expeditions.
