Woodfarm barn is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend away and would recommend it to anyone. I will be booking a return trip. The customer service has been outstanding, and the extra 'luxury' touches were spot on! I would just recommend that you pack lots of jumpers if going in winter - but the log fire soon helped the cold.
Four friends booked the farmhouse for a long weekend break with our dogs.
The farmhouse is a large rambling house with lots of character including low ceilings and sloping floors. You need to mind your head.
It's very well appointed, comfortable and had everything we could ask for. Our dogs loved being able to run in the two acre fully fenced field opposite.
It's in a great location, only half an hour from the coast. However there are some great walks and pubs nearby, including Thornham walks.
Carl is a great host and very welcoming.
Our daughter Yvonne Hay bought us a weekend away at your lovely barn for our anniversary. It was a very nice comfortable stay which included a very nice welcome pack. The weather was very kind to us so were able to use the garden. Would recommend a stay to any of my friends.
Great weekend at Woodfarm Barns
Top quality barns
Great location, for days out and great pubs for dining
We stayed in Stour Barn, not the main house, and this was our second trip back to Woodfarm Barns, and it didn't disappoint. Carl is a very warm welcoming host and the barn was a delight, with a very tasty deli hamper waiting to be devoured. We even managed some warm(ish) weather which meant we could sit out under the covered seating area, listening to the night-time wildlife. A very relaxing break and can't wait to return to try out another barn!!
We stayed in Deben Cottage not the main house. The cottage was clean, had a lovely welcoming hamper and all the amenities we needed including wood for the wood burner. The hot tub was also great! There was plenty of information about local things to do and Carl's communication has been prompt and he was very helpful. Highly recommended.
We actually visited Woodfarm Barns shortly after it opened a few years back and to be honest I don't know why we waited this long to return.
But return we did, and I am pleased to say that it is even better than before!
Carl still owns and runs the business (I'm pleased to say) and it is very clear that he has continued to invest time and money in the place.
The entire plot is delightful. There is now a large pond with seating, which I don't remember being there before, and, talking of water, there are now hot tubs available for certain cottages as well!
The whole experience was extremely relaxing and the service and advice offered by Carl was exemplary. This is clearly a business that he thoroughly enjoys and that comes across in spades.
We will definitely return in the near future.
Thanks for everything Carl - Woodfarm Barns are a credit to you!
