christmas in a Suffolk holiday cottage

Christmas is full… nearly

Now that we’re in December and the first snow has fallen, the countdown to Christmas is in full swing and we’re allowing ourselves to get a bit excited.

Here at Woodfarm Barns we love Christmas and take great pride and pleasure in adorning our holiday barns with traditional decorations and Christmas trees ready for our guests. We’ve stacked logs for the fires, made up the tasty breakfast hampers and have everything in place to welcome those of you who will be staying in one of our restored barns or barges.

We’re lucky that we get to enjoy the peace and quiet of the picturesque Suffolk countryside all year round, but there is something particularly special about the festive season. Being able to snuggle up in the rural peace and quiet is a nice antidote to the chaos of Christmas.

But for those who want to get out and about, there is plenty to do and see. There are plenty of walks close by, whether you prefer a gentle rural meandering or a bracing Christmas coastal stroll. The historic towns and villages offer great pubs and restaurants and wonderful independent shops.

Many people have already made the decision to treat themselves this Christmas to the ideal festive retreat, and long ago booked their stay with us in one of our luxury barns or barges, most of which are now fully booked. But if you are still looking for that perfect Christmas present there are a few nights left, and if you are quick, you can make someone’s Christmas dreams come true.
