Our luxury dog-friendly Holiday Cottages

Chocolate box holiday cottage on film

A preview of our chocolate box holiday cottage.

After almost a year in the making we now have a series of videos to give prospective guests a really good look around Woodfarm so they can choose which of our Dog-Friendly cottages they want to stay in. This one features Alde Barn, which sleeps two. Do look at the others too as we have one for each cottage, including Woodfarm House, which also sleeps two. Our barns all sleep two.

So welcome to our Alde Barn, often referred to as our chocolate box holiday cottage. The idea of these films is for guests to be able to choose their own cottage at Woodfarm, based upon a short movie showing you what they each have to offer. If you haven’t stayed here before then they are well worth a look as they really showcase what Woodfarm is all about. And don’t forget to watch the overall Woodfarm video too!

They have all been made by Paula Brown of Positive FX Studio, a previous guest who also happens to be a film producer! They are all within the grounds of Woodfarm House and ideally situated for exploring the whole county.

Please watch, share, pass on and shout about them. It’d be great if we could get the whole world to see these so they can all choose their cottage in Suffolk to come and stay at!

If you don’t have time to watch it right now and just want to know the main bits, this is what I say in the video:

“Alde Barn sleeps two.

It’s very much one that guests tend to feed back that it feels like a Hansel and Gretel chocolate box cottage type of place.

It’s got a very large enclosed garden.

You walk into the dining kitchen area; there’s a really lovely old antique dining table there.

Guests feel so welcome here because we provide all of the bedding, all of the laundry, tea, coffee.

We have a fabulous local breakfast basket.

There’s luxurious touches like an espresso coffee machine and then as you walk through to the lounge there’s a lovely old pine dresser.

We have flat screen television, iPod docking station.

There’s a big sumptuous sofa and log burner.

And then there’s a shower room just off there.

And then there’s a winding stair case up to the mezzanine bedroom
which is all open plan.

And you get a real sense of height, the ceiling’s six metres high in there.

And then there’s a lovely old cosy wooden bed in there.

We offer a people a home from home, its filled with creature comforts but its got that real country charm.”

So I hope you like the look of our chocolate box holiday cottage. These are a few of our favourite shots:
