Just spent a weekend at Woodfarm Barns - our first visit to Suffolk and what a beautiful place Suffolk is. The barns are in a great location for exploring everywhere.
We stayed in Alde Barn and what a wonderful gem it is. Lovely secluded garden and totally secure for our dog to run around in. The new addition of the hot tub was lovely - we made good use of this in the evenings - Carl the owner even provides slippers and robes - a lovely touch. The barn itself is lovely and cozy. The breakfast hamper awaiting us was absolutely great and the dog was not left out either, his very own treats awaited him and even poo bags were provided.
The enclosed meadow across the road was brilliant for our dog to have a good run around in off the lead in the mornings and evenings - I can honestly say he was absolutely exhausted by the time we got him home after this and all the lovely trips that we took to explore Suffolk!
The whole of Woodfarm Barns is exceptionally well kept, staff are friendly, nothing is too much trouble - thanks again Carl for your help whilst we were there :) There is even a shed which is full of DVDs/CDs, books and maps. Lots of bicycles to use for free and even logs and kindling available for the woodburning stoves - every detail is thought of.
Running our own business does not give us much time off, but we certainly came back from here totally relaxed and we are now trying to work out when we can come again and chill at Woodfarm Barns and explore more of beautiful Suffolk. Carl has got this totally right for people to get away with their dogs - outstanding :)

It is often the little things which make all the difference between and good stay and an amazing time. At Woodfarm Barns they have thought of all the little details to make your stay magical and as romantic as you want it to be. A small but well equipped kitchen, lots of towels and crisp bedding. A breakfast basket full of locally sourced food and a book full of hints and tips including Sat Nav co-ordinates to local shops and amenities. A shed full of bikes, books and DVD and let's not forget the hot tub. Perfect after a day sight seeing with its low-level lighting and ice bucket on a stand. The welcome is warm and the goodbye is sad. I can't wait to visit again.
Secluded rural location set in the wonderful Suffolk countryside. The Alde Barn is simply furnished and well equipped. We loved the hot tub and the lovely private garden for the dogs. There is a large fenced field opposite the site for the dogs to run around in and a smaller fenced area for shy dogs who do not want to mix.
We stayed in Stour Barn for 4 Nights during the hottest week so far in 2017. Visited Felixstowe and Woodbridge, two of our favourite places. Stour Barn really does have every possible home comforts and more. No need to bring any household items as Carl provides it all, from washing up liquid, clingfilm and foil to ground coffee for the cafetière, and of course poo bags for our dog. We've already booked our next holiday in October to get a taste of Suffolk in the autumn. Can't wait.
Just spent four nights in Alde Barn with Henry our chocolate Labrador. Everything was perfect from the beautifully decorated and equipped barn, dog friendly garden and large meadow across the road. The delicious welcome breakfast basket was a lovely touch. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed lots of walking by the seaside and a visit to Flatford Mill. Looking forward to our next visit!
We stayed in Alde Barn for a week and had a wonderful time. The barn was very comfortable, clean and 'quirky'. The enclosed garden was perfect for our two dogs who also loved the meadow on the opposite side of the road. Carl was a perfect host - a real people's person who was always around if needed (especially for Nespresso capsules!!). There was plenty to do in the area and most places were dog-friendly. It is rare, in our experience, to find such great accommodation that is also so welcoming to dogs.
We spent four nights in Stour Barn which is in a great setting - rural, very quiet but easy to travel to other interesting locations. So nice to get away from all the hustle and bustle.The barn was adequately equipped and perfect for two people. It had a unique garden (lots of little quirky features) and the hot tub was just fantastic which we made good use of in the evenings with a glass of bubbbly!
Thank you Carl for a very pleasant stay.
