    Gorgeous sunset last night over Suffolkshire, and this wasn't even looking towards the sun. High tide at Pin Mill.

    The only thing missing was a pint of Adnams at the The Butt & Oyster. Hopefully soon they can be back to some sort of normality and doing what they do best

    Many happy weekends spent sailing at Pin Mill although probably rather more time spent replacing rotten bits of wood and antifouling. Always glad of a pint in the Butt and Oyster.

    Lovely spot!

    Looks lovely. A pint sounds good

    Let me pop in and get you one!! Cheers!! xx

    Stunning

    Looks lovely xx

    Awww luffly, peace and quiet 😆

    If ever you've sat there wondering what it looked like at sunrise across our meadow, then wonder no more. By the wonders of technology, we can bring that experience to your compooter or phone!

    Along with some music that I have no idea where it came from, it was just in my GoPro studio app, but it does make me look like a professional film-maker. Or at least it would if I hadn't told you that.

    Anyway, put the kettle on, sit back, and admire Mother Nature at work again.

    Have a lovely Friday and feel free to share this with someone who could do with a little sunshine in their life right now.

    Who sunk the boat? 😝 Lovely view and picture perfect, you missed your calling Carl 😂 x

    Maceys favourite place at the barns

    I was telling the kids at school yesterday how I got up at 5.15am, ran to the meadow last year & caught the sunrise. It was truly spectacular 😍 x

    Just what I needed this morning. Beautiful. Thank you. 🌞

    Next March! Wow

    Hopefully see that view again in just over a couple of weeks time

    I remember it well... So beautiful. ❤️xx

    Beautiful, thanks ( & I didn't have to get up early to see it 😀) xx

    My 3 just think it's great in the meadow

    Watching the sunrise at 9 pm. Sounds perfect to me! As for the music...... 🤔...😆

    We loved our stay at woodfarm barns we will definitely be back again xx

    Throwback Thursday to June 2016...

    As you can tell from my letter, I was outraged at seeing Superman having to pay to park in Woodbridge. This was a genuine photo that I took, so I know it was true!

    I wrote to the local authority, who sent me a brilliant reply! I have redacted their contact details of course in their response and my follow up.

    I also followed it up with a letter to Budgens, but it seems that they didn't have a sense of humour.

    Wonder what they would do if Batman turned up, he could hover his car and avoid parking charges altogether 😆

    You must have given them a good laugh in the council offices 😂😂 the question is, has Superman ever parked again or is he too busy saving Suffolk from those pesky meteorites? 🤣🤣

    That is hilarious! 🤣

    You're a nutter 😂😂😂😂

    Weird... Superman usually flies or gets the tube 🤔

    Love it!!! Glad I’m not the only nutter in the world 🤪

    Brilliant

    Love this, Batman would certainly have trouble fitting his car in a bay if he visited, may get get fined if overhanging the lines!

    Love it!!! 😂😂xx

    OK!

    Here it is!

    The moment you've all been waiting for!

    Yes folks, it's time for our 2020 Christmas advert video thing!

    Alongside the amateur productions from John Lewis and M&S every year, as well as couple of other Christmas advert wannabe’s, there is ONLY one eagerly awaited videographic festive extravaganza that really matters…

    Yes you beautiful people of Internetland, it’s the Woodfarm Barns & Barges 2020 Christmas advert!!!

    But, and it’s a big but… On the basis that 2020 has been a bit pants to say the least, we have something different for you this year.

    Once again we set out with our standard Yuletide budget of £3.60 to make an explosive feast for your eyes. We had our top scriptwriters (Carl & Andrew) locking horns for months over the words, Andrew purchased a new lens cap for his camera, and Carl polished one of his shoes.

    However, during an afternoon of filming, we ended up with a load of bloopers, which we found far more entertaining than anything we’d come up with by trying. So we figured after the year of COVID we have all endured we could do with a good laugh instead of our usual (very professional and serious) Christmas message.

    Ladies, Gentlemen, and four-legged Woodentops, we proudly bring you the Woodfarm Barns & Barges 2020 Christmas (out-takes) advert

    You all seemed to very much like the boaty photo I posted yesterday, so I thought this week I'd share a few pics of the sun with you.

    You've seen this one before but I think it's striking enough to see it again.

    This is the boardwalk at Snape Maltings, just a stone's throw from 'Onderneming'. Such a lovely walk to Iken, and it's easily done from Woodfarm Barns and 'Twee Gebroeders' too.

    One of my favourite things to do is this walk and a mooch around the shops at the Maltings. A perfect way to walk off a fab lunch at The Plough and Sail, Snape.

    Let's hope that we can all get away again soon and enjoy our awesome independent pubs once more.
