A quick intro…

The owner, Carl, started Woodfarm in 2009, with a simple philosophy, which we still follow every week:

To provide the very best accommodation we can, give our guests everything they need for an immersive Suffolk stay, and have them leave wanting to rebook and recommend.

We welcome up to three dogs in each Barn, Cottage and Barge, and we have Visit England Gold Awards for everything (in England, obviously). We have well in excess of 1,000 Five Star Reviews on Tripadvisor, Facebook and Google, so we must be doing something right.

The whole Woodfarm team works to ensure that you have the best standard of accommodation, have access to all the information you could possibly ever need for your break. Whether it’s in Suffolk or Tuscany, when you leave us, we want you to shout about us to your family and friends, and get your next booking in the diary!

Barns & Cottages in Suffolk

Deep in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, just outside Stonham Aspal, we have eight luxurious Suffolk Barns and Cottages, each sleeping two guests. Each Barn features a fully equipped kitchen, lounge (with a wood burner or open fire), dining room, bathroom and luxury bedroom. Most have their own private hot tubs.

Each Barn and Cottage has its own fully enclosed garden, and we also have a fully enclosed two-acre meadow for dogs to socialise and run around. Each of the Barns and Cottages has a Doggy Shower Station!

We are within easy striking distance of all the popular coastal destinations and perfectly located for the historic wool towns.

Barges in Suffolk

We have two unique, historic Dutch Barges, converted into fabulous Dog-Friendly ‘Floating Holiday Cottages’, with free WiFi and bicycle use.

‘Twee Gebroeders’ is moored on the Quay in historic Woodbridge. The Barge sleeps up to two adults and two children, and offers a perfect romantic getaway, so much so that she featured in The Times in an article on ‘Love Nests’.

‘Onderneming’ is an iconic sight at the world-famous Snape Maltings music and arts venue, and sleeps up to eight adults and two children. She also featured in The Times in their ‘Best Unusual Holiday Homes’ article.

Country House in Tuscany

Imagine yourself as the sun goes down, sipping a nice glass of Chianti, gazing across the valley from your Tuscan terrace, waiting for your dinner to come out of your pizza oven.

Having established the Woodfarm brand in Suffolk, we hopped across the sea and found a little house called ‘ Casa Trebbio’, located on a lush green hillside less than an hour by car from Pisa, and just 20 minutes from Lucca.

The little place with BIG views, Casa Trebbio is our dog-friendly country place in a tiny hamlet called Piazza Di Brancoli. It’s a classic Tuscan farmhouse, sleeping two guests. It has air-conditioning and all the modern bits and bobs you could wish for.
