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.

Please check out our GDPR Policy here and our Privacy Policy here to see how we protect your data.

Terms & Conditions for this FREE BREAK;
The prize is for a FOUR NIGHT MIDWEEK BREAK either in The Granary Barn, or aboard Twee Gebroeders, between 31st October and 28th March, 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.

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!

There is no cash alternative.

If all that doesn’t suit you, your chosen profession dictates that you can’t stay when we are GIVING THIS AWAY, 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 years to some very happy people, but you’ll never be one of them. We can’t do much more.

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!

Country Cottage Breaks for small groups

Cosy fireplace in our Suffolk country cottage

Rambling country cottage in the heart of Suffolk‘Four For Less’ in our big old rambling Country Cottage farmhouse.

Our gorgeous 500 year-old thatched farmhouse is big. VERY BIG. It’s the perfect country cottage for groups of seven or so, so that’s where we’ve always succeeded with marketing it. We’ve been welcoming large groups of guests now since 2010 and everybody loves it!

We’ve built this business by putting customers first wherever we can and we have seen more and more enquiries for couples with a kiddie or two, or couples wanting to have a break with another couple of friends. So….. We’ve decided to extend the discount period and rate on this lovely cottage to make it available, cheaper, to smaller groups for longer.

Cosy country cottage in the heart of rural SuffolkWe have always offered a discount for smaller groups taking a midweek break off peak and we’re now taking this right up to the start of the Summer and beyond! We are going to run this for the rest of 2017, except for July and August because that’s when families love to come and stay. And do!

So now you have the chance to enjoy our wonderful, rambling old farmhouse for less.

If you can picture yourselves having lunch in this fab old beamy country cottage kitchen then just decide who’s coming with you!

Whether its two couples, four friends, mum and dad with two kids, four of you can now come for less. So Four For Less is now more for less in this lovely old country cottage. If it’s a bunch of friends, then it’ll be cheaper than having two barns and you’ll have looooads more room! A choice of bedrooms, bathrooms, lounges and dining areas! You will have to share the kitchen with each other though, but what a place for you to socialise!

Simply pick any midweek before the Summer (July and August) and then for the rest of the year. Just select ‘4’ in the drop down box for number of guests, when getting a price and you’ll automatically get a 20% discounted price so the four of you can come and chill out in your own old country cottage, in the heart of rural Suffolk.

Please note that this is for all NEW bookings, we cannot apply it retrospectively.
