The best of village life in a flourishing community
Barleyfields is situated in the pretty mid Suffolk village of Debenham, renowned for its charm and character. For a quaint village, Debenham has a surprisingly wide range of amenities, most of which are just a short walk away, with everything you need from a dentist to a vet. The village embraces local produce offering a local butcher and popular greengrocers. In fact, you don’t need to leave the village for your shopping. From the local Co-op food store which is open 7-days a week, offering a handy Post Office inside, to the hardware store, eco-shop, or newsagents, your daily needs are well catered for. For larger food shops, there is a wide range of options in nearby Ipswich or Stowmarket.
The village is home to a highly rated pre-school, primary school, and high school. For independent schooling and within 10 miles, there is Framlingham College Prep School and Framlingham College, providing day and boarding options. For further education, nearby Ipswich has Suffolk New College and the University of Suffolk, offering GCSE subjects to post-graduate qualifications including vocational, professional and leisure awards.
Surrounded by rolling countryside, it comes as no surprise that Debenham is the perfect place for a country stroll. Barleyfields overlooks the Hoppit Woods and Lake, ideal for dog walking and scenic picnics. Debenham is also close to the Mickfield Meadow circular walk
and part of the Heart of Suffolk cycle route. Just a short drive away at
Helmingham Hall you can explore the gardens and a 400-acre deer
park, home to both red and fallow deer. The Hall hosts regular events,
including Suffolk Dog Day, Festival of Classic & Sports Cars and the
popular Illuminated Garden Trail during the festive season.
