We also have two floating Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages!

We created Woodfarm Barns with you in mind. We then did it again on the water, with two amazing Dutch Barges! Modern comforts with quirky charm, all within easy reach of so many fabulous and interesting places such as the stunning heritage coast and so many beautiful Suffolk villages.

As with our Suffolk Holiday Barns & Cottages, our Barges are Dog-Friendly, and we have Visit England Gold Awards for them too. Ten properties in all, and ten Gold Awards!

Both our Barges offer a truly unique stay, and have featured in ‘The Times’, as well as on ITV & the BBC! They’re both moored, so think of them as floating holiday cottages with amazing views!

Just click on the images to have a look at our other website Woodfarm Barges – Choose between one for couples on the River Deben in Woodbridge, and one for families or friends on the River Alde at Snape Maltings.

Stay. Relax. Share. Repeat.

Explore every cottage with our Google Virtual Tours

You can start here or click on the menu to choose a Cottage to look around. PLEASE NOTE: Seven of the properties have their own Private Hot Tub for the ultimate Luxury Break.

Log season is well and truly upon us, but at Woodfarm HQ we are as prepared as a particularly organised boy scout with OCD, during national preparedness week.

This is how our guests in Meadow View Cottage will unwind and relax during the evenings over the coming months.

Miss this at my old home.

With winter approaching I decided to invest in a new coat

Unfortunately I had an embarrassing situation talking to this guest. I thought they were a bit wooden, but it turns out they were just a tree

On the plus side, it's toasty warm. On the minus side, I do keep tripping over things. Not sure I should use the hood? 🤷🏼‍♂️

Hi there Nanook!🙋🏼‍♀️

You might need it with today's forecast x

No don’t use the hood cos it makes you look like you’ve crawled up a dead bears bum 🐻

You need wing mirrors... indicators.....

Big foot is alive

New modeling job then Carlos??😁

All coat/ anorak hoods are miles too big…..! The manufacturers must think people are all big heads 😂😂🤣🤣!!

‘Tunnel vision’ for you then. I’m guessing you checked to see if it had a hood adjuster. Had to ask after all you are a man..........

It does make it easy to go incognito. On a serious note if you grab the hood lining and twist then put a safety pin in or seq it (depending on your talents) it makes it smaller. Job done and cosy still

I have the same problem with hoods, turn your head, and the hood doesn’t turn with your head 🥺🥺

As a kid I collected things. I still have (somewhere) a small case full of beer mats, tons of original first day covers from the Channel Islands, and a five litre container full of badges

Here are just a few of my badges, which does make me laugh. Check out my early musical tastes with the Wombles and Bay City Rollers, progressing through to my punk era with Blondie, Sham 60, The Clash, and The Stranglers. There are a few cultural references to the 70's in there that some of you will recognise too!

What did you collect as a kid (or now) and what have you held on to?

Nothing wrong with the Wombles and the Bay City Rollers - great early taste I’d say 😁😆 x

Blast from the past, Matey bubble bath and Buzzby wow, I didn't keep much of anything except memories and a motorcycle I bought 30years ago 🏍️

I have some of those too, but I collected key rings and put them on a chain and hung on my bedroom wall.

Matchboxes which I only have a few left ( I was a bright spark)😜

The wombles and Bay city rollers my growing up memories. I collected frogs. Sold my collection 😢

Bay City Rollers??? Did you also have dodgy tartan half-mast trousers???😱

Loved my womble badges

I don’t remember collecting anything when I was young but I have been collecting souvenir tea towels for many years. I keep telling myself and the family not to give me anymore but when I visit somewhere different I can’t resist purchasing one. I have a few duplicates which have been gifted to me by other people ie from Canada for instance. I have more than 200 and use them all.

We spent ages watching old wombles episodes a while ago after a reference was made to them and our foster child asked what a womble was 🤣

I used to collect old (well they were still legal tender back then!!) halfpenny’s - one for each year they were in circulation from Victorian upwards. Was so frustrated by the 4 years I could never get (think they were war years!) Didn’t think any more of them until I found them again 3 years ago - wonder if they are worth anything now!! Also from about 35 years ago for a while I collected all the rare vinyl records/ picture discs etc of a Scottish band called Runrig. Fairly recently tried to sell them but nobody wants them now 😀😀. Any takers??!!😂😂🤣🤣

I've always loved the wombles...when you think about it they were the first eco warriors in their own quiet way!! And Bernard Cribbens narration was excellent!

I used to collect thimbles! I now collect vintage brooches and badges, I just wish I knew what had happened to my World Cup Willy badge ! ( he was the lion mascot for those too young to remember) 😉😁

Love your badge collection! Curly wurly 😁 - when they were huge eh!? I did still have some badges but not sure if I have. I have a tin of old coppers, mainly pennies, Victorian onwards, but otherwise mainly junk. I've got a meerkat collection,. All still in their boxes. Can't resist free things, then I hoard them. Still got all my old vinyls from about 68 onwards, but no record player for 12 years 🙈 Don't start me on hoarding/collecting 🤣

Love the Stranglers. Great taste!

I collected stamps but sadly I gave them away when I was in my 20s. Wish I had kept them now!

I used to collect them too, definitely had the Wombles ones, Buzby, slush and keep Britain tidy! Lovely memories x

I collected badges too …. Wish I’d kept them !

Loved the bay city rollers

Wonderful collection. I still have a Wombles LP somewhere!

I collect ticket stubbs from things ive been to and still collect now for my sons memory box! I have a ticket stubb from being at the Discoteque royal in manchester when the hit man and her was there , i was 15 🤣 i have one from the only time ive been to Alton towers in 92, i must go nosey in that box now 😅

Stamps, cigarette cards, match books, postcards & tissue oranges were wrapped in in those days. I still have some up in the loft some 50 years latter !!

I used to collect badges, although I suspect my mum got rid of them decades ago, and I also had a Pompeii Lives one! we went on a school trip to the Pompeii exhibition which I think was at the RA ... if not it was the Tutankhamun exhibition that was at the RA and the Pompeii one was at the Natural History Museum? memory’s a bit sketchy; it was around 50 yrs ago after all. think my Tufty Club badge was my favourite and the most beautifully made, with a brass safety pin threaded through a metal plate at the back.

Train spotting, collecting engine numbers back in the days of steam. Still got some of my spotting books.

A few badges too ! Still have my Magpie one plus a stack of Starsky and Hutch posters 💙💙🙄🤣

Used to have a poster of the Bay City Rollers in my bedroom - same image as the badge you’ve got!

Very sad RIP xxx

Agreed. Absolutely shocking event 😕

A very sad day for my hometown 😢

Shocking x

🙏

Terrible news

Dreadful , his poor family 😢 RIP x

Thanks, he was our MP, met him many times, in total shock and disbelief!

Absolutely horrendous 💔 R.I.P. Sir David

Agreed. RIP

Absolutely tragic. RIP Sir David

Very sad certainly a well thought of MP who certainly worked hard for his constituency

Tragic, RIP

So sad x🙏

Such awful news about our local MP 😢 he was very well thought of in his constituency

So sad RIP Sir David

A terrible day indeed. So very sad. Thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues and particularly with those there at the time. A true gentleman 😔

Very appropriate. He was a great supporter of animal welfare issues if I remember correctly. An awful tragedy 😢

Good man down.

My local MP, such a kind man. He supported a charity ball myself and my husband organised and put lots of gifts into the auction and even bid and won some himself. We are all still so shocked 😪

So very sad😥poor family

R.I.P. God bless. 💜

Great recycling of lost property in a local pub

I remember forgetting mine years ago at my friends pub. He went off and came back with about 20 pairs to choose from! 🤣

I must point out that it was lunchtime and I had fizzy water as I don't drink much

Actually you might shout "Ouch" if you're old enough to remember them!

Always had bruise on my wrist.

Used to love them and definitely ouch lol

OMG i forgot them, had lots of bruises from them.

Mine were so heavy, its a wonder they didn't fly off lol wouldn't be allowed today with health and safety rules.

Loved these. K-knockers if I remember correctly. Handy weapon too when you have older brothers 😂

Still have the bruises to prove it 😂

Yessss! They were lethal but great fun! 😁

Loved the sound of them, didn't like the bruises when I got it wrong xx 😳😂❤

Oh the pain when you got the rhythm wrong! 😳🤣

Clackers!

Clackers

I think I must be TOO old as I don't remember these at all. When were they popular?

One word sums up my experience with these. “Ouch”

Black and blue knuckles 🥱

Still got mine, I have a go every now and again 🤣🤣🤣

I loved my clackers but one false move and boy did it hurt. When the swelling went down I was right back at it 😂😂

They weren't toys. They were ruddy weapons 🤣🤣

Ha, ha! Totally forgotten that joy! 🤣

Painful memories 😂

Ooh my bruised wrists 🤣

Loved these great fun 🤣

I had red ones, loved them!😃

Loved mine 😂

Well I remember confiscating them from kids when I was teaching in London…..😂😂🤣🤣!! Bet I was called a miserable old bag (or words to that effect….!!!)
