    Garden project...

    For years, Stour barn had this lovely feature in the garden, which was originally an old animal feed trough I believe. I topped it with a couple of ancient floorboards from The Granary Barn and mounted it on two tree stumps. It's been there a long time, but the wood inside and underneath has finally given up the ghost as you can see when I took the floorboards off 😟

    So... I pulled it down, cut up a scaffold board, stained them, popped on a couple of very old iron hinges (again that I found in The Granary Barn), treated the wood and fitted it back to the tree stumps.

    Just thought I'd share it with you. Hope you like it.

    Aren’t you so resourceful 😊

    My friends popped over to see me last night and we were all commenting on the table (not that we'd seen it before) and how it was genius fixing it to the tree stumps! I'm so pleased it was upgraded just for my royal visit 😊🤣 x

    Nicole Yvette Phelan

    There is definitely no end to your talents x

    Fabulous, clever sausage!

    Ohh, a new feature for us in a couple of weeks 😊

    We are staying Sunday! Can't wait.

    Looks great

    It looks fabulous - well done.

    You are very talented!!

    Thank you for taking such good care of our holiday home , liking your work will give it a try in November hope our Robin likes it 👍👋🐾

    Great job....

    Ahhh, that's what it was! Liam and I weren't sure what it was originally! Looks great 👍🏻

    Listening with interest to the new simple, seven-step traffic light system for foreign travel. I do hope they'll bring this into our roads soon as the current system is far too easy.

    As somebody fortunate enough to have a home in another country, I've adopted the 'wait til this thing is over' system. I've weighed up a trip to Tuscany versus staying alive, and the latter won.

    If only there was an option somehow to enjoy a holiday in this country. I see a gap in the market 😳

    Loving my current staycation in Stour Barn thank you very much. Glad those traffic lights weren't there when I arrived...I'd still be waiting! 🤣🤣🤣

    Please don’t tell Kent about those traffic lights - there’s enough chaos on the roads here already 😱

    Na go for it. I’m falling apart and a bit older than you and Im going to Fuerteventurer for 10 days next week and Portugal in Sept and Rye in the middle. You only live once that time is NOW!

    As long as Woodfarm is on the permenant green list!

    SOCK NEWS!!!

    I have shared my various sock troubles with you in the past, and this one warrants your attention...

    Imagine my horror when doing the laundry yesterday, only to find that one of my stray socks had somehow made it into the washing machine on changeover day. Not only had it shrunk massively, but it had also grown dinosaurs!!!

    It was then that I remembered that we had young Iris and Max staying in Woodfarm House, making a lot of washing during the week for their mummy and daddy. I guessed correctly that this was actually the property of Max, and returned to him before he left. So sweet when he assured me they would be back.

    It’s a tricerasock!

    Went house-hunting over the weekend. Liked this place, but it was a bit small. Oh, and it wasn't for sale. Apparently the National Trust still want it.

    Blickling Hall may be in Norfolk, but it's an easy trip out from Woodfarm HQ, just over an hour away. Don't forget to bring your passport though, as there's a border control just this side of Diss. I shouldn't say this, but they are easily bribed with a tortoise and three magic beans.

    Just as well you didn’t buy it - looks like it’s falling down in the last photo🤪

    My kinda pad! Just back from a fab weekend camping and selling at VW Beetle-Juiced Festival at Stonham Barns Events. I think we could see you if we tried really hard xx

    Had an office at Blickling Hall for a few years. Beautiful place and lovely dog friendly cafe. Happy memories 😊

    Oh, maybe one to visit in a couple of weeks if dog friendly 😊

    You sure that’s Norfolk, and not Italy 🇮🇹

    My favourite house-absolutly stunning and almost as good as Granary Barn x

    You were down the road!

    Love that place .. Great walks

    Blickling is about a 20 minutes drive from us - you could have dropped by for a cuppa!😜

    Love Blickling Hall x

    Err I hope now I’ve just bought a piece of Woodland in Suffolk you don’t expect that from this carrot cruncher? You’ll get a tin of baked beans and a crispy fried rat and like it!

    Haha, August Fools Day!

    Yes it's August the 1st and I hear on the radio that the Government are now incentivising younger people to get their jabs by offering them a slice of pizza! Hahahaha, nearly got me!

    Wait what, it's actually true?

    Wow, just wow. I think I'm going to get in touch with the Mothership and ask if I can head home now

    Is that the mothership with the alien lizards that are reading the chips in our vaccines??

    Whilst all the old codgers had to make their own way to the vaccine centre and queue out in the cold/rain (not us personally as we were lucky to go straight in at our GP) but…… you couldn’t make it up - or could you…!!!!

    It’s the only way they can get a “pizza the action”!!!😜😜😜

    Next it's sweeties for the under 5 year olds......

    Beneath all the humour, people should start really asking the serious questions regarding this. Covid is virtually no threat to younger people, the risk of the vaccine ranges from 10x to 50x greater depending on which studies you read. This jab everyone regardless of the cost using coercion and inducements is very, very worrying.

    I persuaded my children by offering them "not dying"...

    I try to avoid blatant 'selling' on here, as I'd rather just have fun and the occasional rant. And besides, our guests are far better at it. Guests like Kate here, with our latest Five Star Tripadvisor review. Thanks Kate...

    "Fantastic stay for a relaxing break"

    Left on Jul 26, 2021 for a stay in Jul 2021

    "I have wanted to stay at Woodfarm Barns for years but it is always fully booked!

    I am glad I eventually got to stay at the relaxing barns as it was well worth the wait. We had a cockapoo dog with us and he is normally nervous on the first night due to different noises, due to the lovely quiet location and the barns not being right next to each other every evening was lovely and quiet.

    After our evening meals we came back to relax in the lovely hot tub and just chill out ready for a relaxing sleep. Carl has left loads of leaflets and information on every possible location you might want to visit, information on local dog walks, shops and restaurants. A lot of thought has been put into Woodfarm to make your visit special ranging from the delicious breakfasts, dressing gown and slippers, Molton Brown hand-wash, even treats left for the dog.

    Carl was at Woodfarm Barns when we arrived ready to show us around and answer any questions we had which was really appreciated. Our son was due to visit two weeks after us, we left a card, chocolates and some champagne for them which Carl put in their barn before they arrived. Many thanks Carl for a lovely relaxing break"

    Love that little barn, we stayed in there, that’s where I accidentally left my dogs £15 antler bone under the coffee table!!!🙄

    Look, I know this page isn't always taken seriously, as every now and then it contains what may sometimes be tentatively described as humour, or very occasionally poke fun at people in the news.

    But today is not one of those days. When it comes to matters of national importance and a stern mind is needed, then of course we can step up to the plate. This is indeed the case today.

    I implore you to treat this with the respect it deserves folks, as the very future reputation of Great Britain is at stake here. We must apply reason and common sense otherwise our dear nation will simply lose credibility on the global stage. Please share with your friends as we must all be in this together.

    Therefore it is with an austere demeanour that I must ask you this question;

    "Gravy with chips" - YES or NO? Hit 'Like' and post your answer!

    (I might send a Woodfarm T-Shirt to the one that makes me laugh the most)

    Yes, when with a pie but not with fish, that would be curry sauce 😋

    Only if Yorkshire puddings on the plate too..then you push the boat out..😜

    No way, salt is fine, sauce if you must but never ever gravy

    Yes

    Chips & Gravy go together like Roast beef and custard. 😉

    Yes!! After a night on the tiles and painting the town red, the night wouldn’t be complete without chips and gravy from the takeaway BUT you also have to have cheese too! No better way to end the night than sitting in the takeaway (or bus stop/taxi shelter/negotiating the walk home) bleary eyed conquering such a feast reminiscing about past nights out that all ended the same way 😂😂 Can take the girl outta Hastings, but not ‘Astings out of the girl 🙈

    Yes, there is no other way. Unless you have baked beans

    Can’t say as I’ve never tried it! 🤔 🍟

    Nope, cheese (only if it melts), mayonnaise, ketchup at a push but never gravy - oh unless it’s KFC chicken gravy and then that’s a must 😊

    Why oh why would you want to turn crisp salty perfection into a soggy swimmy mess?! Don’t do it!!

    Only place to have chips and gravy is yarmy market 😋

    NO!!!!!!!😱😱😱 SOGGY CHIPS - YUK🤢

    No.

    Nope only ever vinegar then the salt. Lovely 😋

    No way Jose. Gravy has its place but not on chips.

    Noooooo!

    Definitely…northern girls love gravy😅

    Yes bloody amazing 😻

    Depends on whether there is fish! If not , yes x glad to see a serious post

    Nooo…… revolting 🤮- I don’t “do” soggy - why ruin something that has been cooked to be crispy!!

    Yes,of course 😋 and cheese too if possible 😋😋

    Yes if you can eat quickly!No if you’re a slow eater as they’ll be wet and soggy

    Yes (converted when I moved oop north for uni) but on the side!!

    NO🤢

    No way, Mayo every time,

    You've heard that they are now recruiting a new 'Doctor' for Doctor Who?

    I can neither confirm, nor deny if any filming has already started at Woodfarm HQ. This photo could be real or it could be #fakenews

    This guy.

    Aaaargh! Daleks crossed with mop haired idiots! Don’t you think the world has suffered enough without this?😱😱😱😱😱

    Mmm someone entrepreneurial, good sense of humour, resilient, charming… know anyone who fits the bill?! 🤣🤣

    Neither of these two buffoons.

    The ideal Dr to make sense of this crazy world.....

    Bill Nighy

    Sean Pertwee...

    Julian Clary.

    Wrong image, they're both cybermen.

    A trans black one legged drug addict recovered vegan straight curious self harming midget should fit BBCs requirements

    I am certain that this could be Trumped!

    How about this guy. He’d be a cool Dr. Who 😊

    Invigorating 50 mile bike ride through the lanes of Suffolk this morning, despite the grey and windy summer!

    I was spurred on at about 35 miles when I thought I was cycling through the Olympic village!

    I'm guessing this person is really into it, and possibly feels as though the games should have been held in Mid-Suffolk!

    Wowser! Good going 🚴‍♂️

    👍🏻

    Good effort old boy 😁

    Blimey. You certainly are the ‘local legend of Station Road’.

    The secret must be emerging, it’s a relief to be open and honest at last. The ‘Olympic bid’ was offered to Suffolk, with the proviso that the Village was under Woodfarm juristriction. Plus that ball with the funny face is banned, plus you’re being offered a long stay-vacation, as part of the deal 😂😂

    Well done......

    Well versions have been held Shropshire why not Suffolk but can you imagine parking in Southwold if they did.
