A coastal break with a unique twist

Thorrington & Thorpeness, Suffolk

Swap a standard double for a balancing barn or geometric house, both are worthy of spot on Grand Designs.

The Balancing Barn cantilevers across the landscape, providing panoramic views of the woods, ponds and meadows, and from the living room of the Dune House you can walk straight out onto the beach. Ingenious and playful, these two buildings combine art with comfort to create an extraordinary experience. You’ll be bragging about your quirky stay to your friends for months.

The Dune House in Thorpeness and The Balancing Barn in Thorington are both one of a kind properties, created by Living Architecture - a group of architects who’ve created a range of unique rental accommodations across the country.
