Free Break at Woodfarm Barns or Barges

Suffolk Holiday Cottage business with 600 Five Star ReviewsFree Break giveaway to show our thanks

Having given away a FREE BREAK to so many lucky winners over the years, when we run our various competitions, we have decided to simply give one away every year just to say thank you to you for being on our mailing list, which we call our VIP Rewards Group.

There’s no catch! Just a FREE BREAK for being part of the gang! Yup, that’s it!

“Why are you just giving away a FREE BREAK”? I hear you ask (I often hear voices!). Well, it’s quite simple really. We have spent years building up our mailing list/ database/ VIP Rewards Group, call it what you will. Every single one of the people on it are there because they have stayed with us, enquired about staying with us, or entered one of our regular competitions for another FREE BREAK. What we then do is email details of cancellations, exclusive offers, news about all things Suffolk that may be of interest etc. We call this marketing. I’ll let you into a secret if you promise not to tell…… It isn’t rocket science! 

We do all our marketing in a very transparent way and everyone in our VIP Rewards Group can unsubscribe at any time. They will never be contacted again if they do. We will also never share your information with anyone. We simply use it to keep Woodfarm Barns and Barges foremost in your mind when you are making your holiday or short break decisions. That’s it!

We have worked for years to build our reputation and we work hard to provide you with as many reasons to come and stay in Suffolk as we can possibly think of. We provide the best possible place we can for you to stay and then make sure you have an endless supply of things to tap into whilst you’re here. Pubs, Restaurants, Delis, Coffee Shops etc etc.

Free Break giveaway at WoodfarmHundreds of Five Star reviews on Tripadvisor, Facebook and Google

Quality in Tourism GOLD awards for ALL of our Cottages and Barges

Features in Dog Friendly Magazine (Twice), The Times (Twice) and Uniquely Away and as well as other publications

Why on earth would even consider staying anywhere else? 

Well if you simply stay connected with us you are in with a chance of winning a FREE BREAK, as well as hearing about all the other opportunities to do so with our competitions. Do feel free to book a break and pay us though, that’s kind of why we do this!

If you’d like to book a break and you haven’t stayed before then you can also grab a £25 Voucher towards your first stay by clicking here and adding yourself to our VIP Rewards Group. Our availability calendar is at the bottom of this page but please be advised that we get very full so do try to book in advance.

It’ll be for two adults and up to three dogs.

We will draw this annual FREE BREAK during September by picking one of our VIP Rewards Group ‘members’ at random. 

Free Break giveaway at Woodfarm Barns or BargesIf you are that person we will notify you by email. If we do not hear back from you within 48 hours of notifying you that you have won, we will pick another correct entrant and so on until someone responds. By entering you do consent to us announcing your name on Social Media once you have accepted your prize. We’d obviously really appreciate it if you could then shout it from the rooftops!

We have given away many breaks over the years to some very happy people, but you’ll never be one of them. We can’t do much more.

Add a Dog Photography package to your Suffolk break

Dog Photography for Woodfarm by Gill Moon

We’re all about trying to think of new ways to make your Woodfarm Barns or Barges break extra special and for the many dog lovers who stay with us, we’ve got an absolute cracker for you with an exclusive Dog Photography package!

Gill Moon Dog PhotographyIn a strange twist of fate, the previous owner of our beautiful Dutch Barge Twee Gebroeders, in Woodbridge, just happens to be an amazing professional photographer and just happens to be very good at Dog Photography!

I’ve always thought that many of our dog owner guests would love a really high quality reminder of their stay with their furry friends and having met Gill Moon last year when I bought ‘TG’, the idea has gradually come together. I’ve seen a lot of Gill’s work and have her photos of dogs are particularly striking.

So let’s tell you more about Gill and how you can take advantage of her fabulous, exclusive Dog Photography offer for Woodfarm guests;

Gill Moon Photography

Gill Moon Dog Photography for Woodfarm guestsGill is a professional freelance photographer specialising in Suffolk scenes. Her landscape images cover much of the Suffolk Coast and have been published widely online and in many local and national magazines. We also have an amazing framed print of one of her River Deben scenes on the wall of ‘TG’.

Her love of the outdoors and the natural world also extends to animals and pets in particular which has lead Gill to set up a dog photography arm to her business.

Gill says “I love animals and have always had pets. There is nothing more rewarding than the connection you get when interacting with an animal and it is this that I try to capture in my images. 

Dog Photography by Gill Moon

I began by photographing my own dog, a rescue saluki cross called Spud, who is a real character but a complete softy. As luck would have it Spud was a natural in front of the camera and has been a willing model for my photography for several years (spurred on by a continuous supply of dog treats!)”

Photographing pets has developed over the years and now provides a natural extension to Gill’s landscape work.

Gill offers outdoor dog photography sessions in the Suffolk countryside or indoor sessions for all pets in her studio in Hollesley.

 

Dog Photography for Woodfarm guests by Gill MoonFor Woodfarm guests Gill is offering a 45 minute session at any of our barns or barges at a special Woodfarm rate of just £45!

During the session she will shoot a variety of natural looking images of your dog or dogs (She’s happy to photograph more than one dog per session), some posed and some playful. All these images will be available to view the day after the session via an online private gallery. From this collection you can choose 4 high resolution digital files, which can be downloaded and used however you wish for print or digital display.

In addition to your digital files she will offer other ways to display your images including framed prints, canvas prints, metal prints, collages and albums. All guests will be offered a 10% discount on any of these products.

Please click on any of the images to see Gill’s website and her astonishing work! There’s a tab on there for her pet photography work too.

Please contact Gill directly to arrange your shoot as we do not take a commission. We are just happy to recommend Gill and put you in touch for that something special to make your break even better.

Call her on 01394 410347 or 07920162319

12 days of Christmas at Woodfarm

A hit single on your Woodfarm barns holiday?

We all know the words to the 12 days of Christmas but we’ve re-written it just to give you a very special Christmas present from us, worth over £60!

We did our own take on the 12 days of Christmas last year to bring you a very special offer and it went so well we’re doing it again this year!

You may think that it is a much treasured traditional, seasonal song and shouldn’t be tampered with. However, in true Woodfarm style, we do like to buck the trend so we’ve kinda juggled with it to bring you a new perspective with a Suffolk twist….

We’re using our version to give you a lovely Christmas present from us!

The 12 days of Christmas starts on Christmas day and ends on the 5th January. So, all you need to do is book any 2018 break during the Twelve Days of Christmas and you will receive have all these mouth-watering treats waiting for you when you arrive! You don’t need to actually come before the 5th January, you just need to book your 2018 break by then, and you MUST use the Voucher Code given below.

Please note we cannot apply this offer in conjunction with any other offer or retrospectively to any existing booking, or if you see this offer after booking. It is a new offer just for the 12 days of Christmas to incentivise people to book. That’s why they are called “special offers”. We cannot be clearer on this.

Free Hamper with your 12 days of ChristmasFirstly you’ll have one of our deli-cious deli Hampers from the Deli at the Chilli Farm, just around the corner from Woodfarm.

It’ll contain all sorts of amazing foodie treats such as locally produced tarts, pies, cheeses etc, as well as their life-changing chocolate brownies! There’ll also be some local beer or cyder in there, as well as crisps, crackers, chutney etc too, so plenty to feast on during your Suffolk stay.

Champagne on your 12 days of ChristmasNext, you’ll find a chilled bottle of Champagne in your fridge waiting for you to toast your occasion, whatever that may be.

So you can get the fire going (if it’s that kind of weather), pop the cork and put your feet up with your loved one, relax and unwind.

Now you have everything you need to complete your 12 days of Christmas treat.

Almost….

Handmade chocolates with your 12 days of ChristmasAll you need now is chocolate!

Well, we have that covered too! You’ll also find an amazing box of local, handmade chocolates waiting for you too!

These fabulous honey and sea salt chocolates are handmade in Suffolk, with the help of some very friendly Suffolk bees.

So, we hope you like the sound of our Christmas present to you! All you need to do to scoop all these tasty treats is to book your 2018 break, any time up until the 12th day of Christmas (5th January) and use this Voucher Code; twelve. And you’ll have all this lot waiting for you when you arrive.

If you book Woodfarm House or Onderneming, there will be a much larger hamper!

2018 is booking VERY quickly and we are way ahead of last year again so do book early to avoid disappointment. We all hear that phrase but I am turning a lot of enquiries away simply because we are heavily booked. Just CLICK HERE to go straight to our availability page and get yourselves booked in and grab these goodies!

Please note this cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers including our £25 Discount for first time guests. I’m generous but not daft.

So, to our re-written song;

Our take on the lyrics are below and it was written in 2016 before we had our Barges and we only had three Hot Tubs.

Showing you how it’s done is my lovely friend and bandmate Fern Teather. Whilst I got her to do this daft version of the 12 days of Christmas for me, she is actually a very talented singer/ songwriter so do check out her website here!

[youtube url=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/xoPdFjhfDzM” autoplay=”false” repeat=”false”]

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a weekend in the country.

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me, two local lakes on a weekend in the country.

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, three hot tubs, two local lakes, on a weekend in the country.

Win a FREE Break for our Birthday! Lucky Number Eight

So then. Lucky Number Eight. Yup, eight years ago on May 9th, 2009, I became the proud (?) owner of a dilapidated old farmhouse and some run down old barns, set in two acres of the Suffolk countryside. None of it looked like it does now! 

Lucky Number EightLucky Number Eight wasn’t even on the radar! All that lay ahead was years of hard work building my Suffolk Holiday Cottage dream. Simples!

I won’t bore you with the gory details here but suffice it to say, I shed blood, sweat and tears, in various amounts and now have a thriving business, with a reputation and level of business I am absolutely over the moon with and very proud of.

And to celebrate I have decided to give away a FREE BREAK to mark our 8th Birthday!

Lucky Number Eight BentleyThe number 8 is regarded as the luckiest number in Chinese culture. The pronunciation of their word for 8, ’Ba’, sounds similar to the word ‘Fa’, which means to make a fortune. It contains meanings of prosperity, success and high social status too, so all business people favour it very much. Every day’s a school day hey?!

8 years of hard work and making customers happy have certainly started to pay off so I figured I’d make it Lucky Number Eight for someone and give away a FREE BREAK

Please note we are not giving away a Bentley, just a FREE HOLIDAY!

All you have to do is to follow these 3 very simple steps;

1) Like our main Woodfarm Barns Facebook Page or Follow us on Twitter if you haven’t already

2) Share this Post/ Tweet on your timeline

3) Complete the form below to tell me in which country is the Lucky Number Eight considered a sign of wealth and fortune

It’s three very simple steps to be our Lucky Number Eight so please make sure you follow all three. You’d be amazed how some people don’t!

One Lucky Number Eight winner will be picked from the hat of all our correct entries on birthday on May 9th.

Terms & Conditions;

Win a 4 night Break in The Granary Barn with Lucky number EightThe prize is for a FOUR NIGHT MIDWEEK BREAK in The Granary Barn, between 31st October 2017 and 28th February 2018, subject to availability, excluding Christmas, New Year, Valentines, School and Bank Holidays so you have a full five months to take your FREE BREAK! 

It’ll be for two adults and up to three dogs.

Win a break in The Granary Barn with Lucky Number EightPlease note that we cannot announce the winner first on Social Media, it has to be by email. If we do not hear back from you within 48 hours of notifying you that you have won, we will pick another correct Lucky Number Eight entrant and so on until someone responds. By entering you do consent to us announcing your name on Social Media once you have accepted your prize. We’d obviously really appreciate it if you could then shout it from the rooftops!

There is no cash alternative.

If all that doesn’t suit you or you are of the opinion that “no-one ever wins these” then feel free to not enter and gaze at your navel instead. We have given away many breaks over the last 8 years to some very happy people, but you’ll never be one of them.

Kate Nash from Northamptonshire!

I’ve been in touch with Kate and she’s over the moon with her win! And Kate’s winning entry was……

“Meanwhile, in Norfolk….”

Its a shame that there can only be one main prize winner, but because we had such an amazing response and such great entries we have decided to offer ALL of our entrants a 10% Discount and are emailing them the Voucher Code.

This was the rest of the original post if you’d like to see what it was all about…

We do like to give away a FREE BREAK from time to time in our dog-friendly holiday cottages so get your creative juices flowing and see if you can make us laugh. It’s another caption competition as you all had such fun with the last one that we did.

We get to hear lots of horror stories about people’s experiences elsewhere and they’re pleasantly surprised when they arrive here for the first time so we thought we’d have some fun with this photo!

So, what do you have to do? Well, it’s very simple;

  1. NOT one of our dog-friendly Holiday CottagesMake sure you ‘Like’ our main Facebook page or ‘Follow’ us on Twitter if you haven’t already.
  2. Share the competition post on Facebook or Re-Tweet it on Twitter.
  3. Come up with your funniest or most creative caption for this picture and enter it along with your details below. Then hit SEND!

Please make sure you follow ALL THREE steps. If you don’t, you simply won’t be in with a chance as you must do what it says on the tin!

So that’s it! If you’d like to win a FREE FOUR NIGHT BREAK in one of our luxurious Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottages, thats all you have to do. We will add every entry that makes us laugh into a big hat and choose one at random when the competition closes at midnight on Halloween! (Horror, geddit?)

The prize is for a Four-night midweek break, Monday to Friday, in Alde or Stour Barn depending upon availability when you choose your dates.

The prize winner can select from midweek dates from 31st October 2016 to 31st March 2017, excluding bank and school holidays, Valentines, Xmas and New Year. Dates chosen are subject to availability of course. The prize is for two people to stay, one of whom must be at least 18 years of age, and up to three dogs.

The prize cannot be transferred to an existing booking or used in conjunction with any other offer. The prize is non-transferable, cannot be sold, and no cash alternative is offered. Only one entry per person.

By entering this competition, all participants will be deemed to have read and understood the above Terms and our Standard Terms and Conditions (all references to payment can be ignored)

We will notify the winner by email so look out for it after Halloween! We will post your name only on Facebook and Twitter and would really appreciate it if you would shout about it too!

Our luxury dog-friendly Holiday Cottages

 

With hundreds of Five Star TripAdvisor, Facebook and Google reviews, our guests certainly think our dog-friendly holiday cottages are a tad more luxurious than the one we’re using for the competition!

With all the modern comforts you’d want such as comfy sofas and beds, underfloor heating, cosy log-burners, cotton bed-linen, towels, luxury hand soap, tea, coffee, sugar and a delicious local breakfast basket with every stay, we like to think we’ve thought of everything to make your stay special.

If you’d like to check our our availability and prices anyway then simply CLICK HERE to go straight to that page and book your next escape from the norm.

Please note that by entering we will also add you to our VIP Rewards Group, for other competitions, exclusive offers, priority notice of cancellations etc. You can also then use the Voucher Code 25OFF when booking your first break, for a £25 Discount. We will also keep you updated with things to do, places to go, points of interest etc in Suffolk. We will NOT pass your details on to anyone else and you may unsubscribe at any time if you want to miss out on all this.

So get thinking, we draw a winner from the hat on Halloween!
