What a delightful rural retreat.  We were made to feel welcome on arrival and felt at home.  Great doggy hamper – woofs and wags from Toby!  We have spent most of the wonderful days at the beach and have been spoilt for choice of where and what to do, but the highlight was the hot tub.  Thank you so much Carl, you have a wonderful place here and so grateful we’ve discovered it!

Friday 14th April 2017 – Andy and Christine;

Amazing stay, really enjoyable and relaxing.  The cathedral at Bury St Edmunds is very beautiful.  The Fire Station Coffee Shop in Woodbridge is worth a visit.  Remember to book any eating places as they are all very good and get booked up.  From the nice touches, the Barn has been clearly thought through creating a warm environment that is a pleasure to be in.

The barn is beautiful and it is obvious that love, thought and time have gone into every inch of the space.  It certainly filled the luxury brief.  We recommend the Harbour Inn at Southwold with great menu and dog friendly.  The Four Horseshoes at Thornham has good pub grub and dog friendly with lovely staff.

Sunday 5th March 2017 – Dave and Kathryn with Col the dog;

The location was great for dog walking and generally for chilling out.  We had everything we could possibly need and the breakfast hamper was a lovely touch.  Star gazing and champagne in the hot tub was a real special treat.  Recommend the Four Horseshoes pub for a great meal.

Such amazing, personable service from Carl right from the first call, all the way through to departure.  Really cannot praise enough!  Great perfect touches for our break away in Deben Barn.  The hot tub and the woodburner were the icing on the cake!  We have filled our days with local walks, a trip to Needham Lake and Lavenham.  Thank you.

Sunday 15th January 2017 – James and Victoria;

Thank you for a relaxing stay at Deben Barn.  Highly recommend visiting Framlingham on Saturday as there’s a small market in the square, with small boutiques and the Castle also.  We had lunch in the Crown which was great.  We also enjoyed Dunwich with the Greyfriars ruins, cliff tops and beach together with the Chip shop and pub!  We will be shouting about Wood Farm Barns from the rooftops & facebook!

Friday 8th April 2016 – Freda and Tom;

Another wonderful few days staying in this lovely barn.  We have had a relaxing time especially in the hot tub, what a treat!  Visited Orford, a charming place, the fish restaurant should not be missed and the “meat shed” has to be seen to be believed. 

Thursday 24th March 2016 – John and Karen;

Thank you Carl and Team.  A fantastic stay and brilliant way to destress and chill out.  Sutton Hoo is an interesting place to visit and Dunwich is great but the shingle beach is hard work.  The Ship Inn at Dunwich and the Butt and Oyster at Pin Mill are great pubs.

Monday 20th March 2016 – Roman and Peter;

Another great stay at Wood Farm Barns.  We visited the pretty town of Framlingham with it’s castle.  It was great using the woodburner in the evenings and the hot tub was a hit!

We have had such a relaxing couple of days.  The Barn is beautiful and everything you need – spotless.  This makes it an easy choice to come back as we are able to bring our “pooches”.  The hot tub is an added bonus.

Sunday 27th December 2015 – Kate and Mike with Toddy and Nancy the dogs;

We had a wonderful time at Deben Barn and a very warm welcome by Carl.  The Carol Service at Crowfield on Christmas Eve had a lovely atmosphere.  We enjoyed the peaceful countryside and the enclosed garden was great for the dogs.

Our first visit here, after winning a Facebook caption competition!  We were in need of some time out and the hot tub soaked away all our worries. The hot tub, hamper, and dog treats were the icing on the cake.  Farm shops to visit are the Chilli Farm and Jimmy’s Farm.  For a day trip we recommend Southwold.  For dog walking the walk at Flatford along the river to Dedham and back.  Suffolk and Wood Farm Barns are the dog friendliest place to stay and we will be back.

Friday 30th October 2015 – Tracey and James;

The standard at Wood Farm Barns is very high and each of the Barns are cosy and unique, but the hot tub tops what is already a great experience here.  The Crown at Stowupland serves excellent food and at good prices and the Kitchen in Thorpness is worth a visit.

Thank you for a lovely stay, with the breakfast hamper being such a lovely touch.  The hot tub was an added bonus!  Dunwich Heath is great and The White Horse at Badingham was lovely.  Needham Lake is great and walking by the river following the Aggregates Trail.  We ate at the Sorrel Horse – great value for money.  Wood Farm Barns is a great place to stay and we’d love to come back again soon.

We couldn’t have been happier with our stay and felt relaxed and at home.  The breakfast hamper was a lovely touch, with the best bacon ever!  We visited Bury St Edmunds and Southwold as well as exploring the nearby area.  It has been absolutely wonderful to find an area of the country that is truly dog friendly.  Thanks for a fabulous stay.

Sunday 2nd August 2015 – Kevin and Lisa with Rocky the dog;

recommend to friends and family. Thank you.

Sunday 21st September 2014 – Kim and John with their 2 dogs;
Our first visit to Suffolk and found the County and the people very welcoming. Deban barn has all that you need and the extra
touches are so thoughtful. Did not expect the breakfast basket and the extra touches including dog tags – great idea especially for two naughty terriers! Found the pubs and shops very dog friendly which is a priority for us. Not cold enough for the wood burner so might have to make a Winter visit! Lay out is great – enough privacy but a community feel at the same time – not easily achieved. Thank you for a great holiday.

Sunday 7th September 2014 – Sarah and Terry with Tilly the dog;
Our first visit but not our last. The rural idyll has captivated us and we have had a superb week. The thoughtfulness and attention to detail from Carl and the team is exceptional. We have enjoyed the friendliness of all we have met and Suffolk is certainly a county of dog lovers who have welcomed us and our dog warmly and sincerely. Worthy of note is Needham lake (this was Tilly’s contribution) The Victoria Pub at Earl Soham for warm welcome and good food, Alder Carr Farmshop – dogs welcome in the courtyard whilst you eat lunch etc. and the Dog at Grundisburgh.. Exceptional and dogs welcome in all areas – not only given a dog biscuit but
a whole bowlful! Warm and friendly, genuine and great service. Totally enjoyable stay -Thanks Carl and the team

Monday 25th August 2014 – Larson and Denise with Chloe and Jake the dogs;
Another splendid holiday here – setting is idyllic as ever, Carl as welcoming as ever. Now to re-book! Hopefully quick enough for a free hamper!

Friday 22nd August 2014 – Glynis and Mick with Rupert and Smartie the dogs;
Idyllic complex of barns in pretty landscaped surroundings ~ a good balance between hideaway retreat and the chance to be sociable with the other guests. Excellent warm welcome and thoughtful touches didn’t go unnoticed! Time melted away too quickly!

Monday 18th August 2014 – Sharon and Stewie with Sky, Scrappy & Summer the dogs;
Was everything we hoped it would be. The kids – Sky, Scrappy and Summer have had the best time. As we have. Lovely little cosy barn and log fire was a dream. Thank you Carl.

Sunday 17th August 2014 – Tom and Ellie with Pluto the dog;
A lovely spot for a much needed break. Beautifully set up and definitely dog friendly. ~The small touches of providing a holiday dog tag was brilliant and made the stay even more relaxing. Gorgeous countryside, a place to visit more than once!

Friday 15th August 2014 – Sarah and David with Tilly & Poppy;
We have had another lovely holiday this year in Deban Barn as much as our stay in Alde Barn last year. Feeling relaxed and ready to get back to normality (whatever that is!) Thanks again.

11th August 2014 –June and Jim & Moss the dog;
We had a very relaxing week in Deban barn; perfect for our needs and that of our border collie. We loved the area and found it very
peaceful and beautiful. Moss loved Dunwich Beach – his first ever visit to the sea! We look forward to returning to Woodfarm Barns
in the very near future.

3rd August 2014 – Pat and Phil;
We have had a brilliant week in Deban Barn. Carl Made us feel really welcome when we arrived and we just loved all the trimmings he added to the barn to make us feel special on our Honeymoon! We enjoyed visiting many of the lovely local villages like Framlingham, Debenham, Aldeburgh and many others. We also enjoyed some lovely walks. The setting is just beautiful for these lovely barns and we can’t wait to come back. We will be telling our friends and family about our time here and sharing out photo’s of Woodfarm barns. Thank you Anne and Carl.

Monday 7th July – Barry, Hilary, Meg & Hattie;
Our second visit to Deben Barn and hopefully will not be our last.  We have had a lovely relaxing weekend despite the rain.  Framlingham Castle is well worth a visit as is Thorpeness. We had a lovely meal at the ‘ship Inn’ at Dunwich which is also dog friendly.  Thanks for the breakfast basket and lovely welcome. 

Friday 27th June – Gren and Lynda & Tilly the dog;
Second visit to Deben Barn.  Lovely to see how garden has matured and fish have grown.  Debenham, Eye and Framlingham Castle worth a visit.  Tilly loved Dunwich beach.  Hope to return to Woodfarm Barns and beautiful Suffolk villages.  So much to see.  Thank you Carl.

Sandra and Graham;
A great place of interest to some is the reclaim centre close to the barns. We loved the sights and sounds of the birds in the garden and all in all have had a great time. We hope to return soon!

Thursday 26th June – Sarah and Stephen with lottie the beagle;
We loved this place – the gardens the fish and the ‘flower bed’.  We went out every day and sampled the fare of various pubs.  Best menu the Ship at Dunwich.  The Deli at Coddenham was excellent and they were very dog friendly.  The villages are so pretty with lovely thatched cottages.  We’ll be back.

Julia and Ian;
A brilliant few days, so relaxing.  We did eventually venture out and enjoyed visiting Framlingham, Orford, Woodbridge and Aldeburgh.  Favourite places being Fram and the countryside around here.  The welcome basket was a real plus point.  The only negative is having to leave!

Friday 20th June 2014 – Steve and Sharon with Jay the dog;
Beautiful cottage set in a very peaceful location offering tranquility and serenity leaving us all very relaxed. The barn is very comfortable. Lovely breakfast basket

Our 3rd visit to Woodfarm Barns. We love it here. It’s a great getaway break and only an hours drive for us. As usual delicious breakfast provided, thank you Carl, and for the choc Easter eggs! Lovely to visit in the Spring with warmer weather and beautiful wild flowers all around. As usual, everyhting we could possibly need has been provided. We will return home relaxed and refreshed ’til the next holiday. Thank you

Sunday 13th April 2014 – Kelly & Lee with Ellie the dog;
We will definitely be recommending Woodfarm barns to friends. Absolutely excellent holiday accommodation in a beautiful location. A well needed break away from the demands of a busy job and city life. We will definitely be coming back. Many thanks

Friday 21st March 2014 – Lyn & Tim:
Thank you Carl, we have had the most amazing four days. Love this place, the attention to detail, the small touches that make it special and top notch vacation accommodation. The Woolpack in Debenham has great food and staff. We will most definitely be back and will be recommending this place to others

Monday 17th March 2014 – Julie & Flora;
Happy and most wonderful week. Deben Barn is all one would wish for plus more. Househunting unsuccesful, which gives an excellent opportunity to return for another visit. Many thanks

Friday 7th March 2014 – Neil & Sarah with Alice the dog;
The fact that we are on our 4th holiday at Woodfarm Barns…. says it all!; 🙂 On our first visit to the Granary in September 2011 we watched the oak beams being delivered for the other barns. Having stayed in the Granary again and also Woodfarm House with the family we decided this time to try Deben Barn. It’s cosy and warm and you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in the door. Alice our dog loves the garden, her usual walk down to the churchyard and then on the footpath across the field to a pool for her morning swim!! The weather has been amazing and we have walked and walked. We found that you can park at the harbour in Southwold and then walk over the bridge to Walberswick. It takes about 40-50 minutes, then you can walk over the sand dunes and along the beach for miles. Lunch served at 3pm at the Anchor Inn was a bonus and they welcome dogs. Thank you Carl as usual and we will be back later in the year x PS – didn’t mean to write another novel in your book but get carried away! xx

Sunday 2nd March 2014 – Michael & Diana;
Second visit, as fab as our first. We’ve stayed in Woodfarm House for a family holiday and now tried the romantic barns. Looking forward to coming again

Sunday 23rd February 2014 – Steve & Mandy with Sammie the dog;
Fantastic! Great welcome, relaxing 🙂 beautifully quiet but the birdsong was lovely; Robins, Greenfinches and Great Tits so far. Brilliant little touches all the way round such as bacon, butter and milk in the fridge, a lovely holiday welcome basket of biscuits, eggs, fruit, mushrooms and tomatoes, coffee, tea, sugar, shampoo and shower gel all here! Even a dog biscuit for Sammie our dog. We visited Aldeburgh and highly recommend the fish & chips and Deli there 🙂 – Bury St Edmunds, Needham Market, Lavenham, Debenham (Fish & Chips handy for your first night here) Comfy, cosy and warm – just the place to unwind. We enjoyed waking up to birdsong every morning. Reluctantly packing but still have lots of great memories to take away with us. Many thanks Carl, you’re a star! xx

Monday 20th January 2014 – Nicholas and Steve with Bertie and George the dogs;
Warmly welcomed by Carl and impressed by the standard of the barn. Warm in the barn too; the heating was so efficient we had to turn it down and never needed the woodburner! The dogs enjoyed themselves and we were glad of the 100% enclosed garden; perfect for dogs. We visited Rendlesham, Dunwich and Tunstall for walks and also discovered Kings forest. Most days were spent visiting favourite places along the coast from Orford to Southwold. Thanks also for the welcome basket, particularly the delicious eggs. Thanks to Carl and his team for an enjoyable winter mini-break with the dogs

Monday 10th February 2014 – Betty and Fafryn;
We have had a lovely time staying in Deben Barn and couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing, comfortable place for our first little romantic holiday together. We have wanted for nothing and have very much appreciated the beautiful finishing touches. Woodfarm Barns has helped us create a precious memory. Great cottage

Monday 6th January 2014 – Jack & Elsa with Lima & Luna the dogs (from Holland);
We have already been several times to England but have never had such a warm and well-eqipped cottage that allowed our two boxer dogs. We enjoyed it very much, the dogs did too. Thanks a lot and we will definitely return for our next holiday

Monday 30th December 2013 – Andrew & Val;
What a lovely way to end the year. We were blessed with sunshine and blue skies every day. We saw the footings of these lovely little barns going up in 2011 when we stayed in the beautiful Granary Barn for our first holiday here. It’s great to see the end result and to enjoy a weekend in Deben. Everything so well thought out and provided for our comfort and enjoyment. Especially enjoyed the festive holiday hamper and Carl’s Damson Gin! Well done!

Monday 2nd December 2013 – Beth and Sam;
Such a gorgeous place. Spent the weekend here as a surprise for my 21st! Couldn’t have asked for anything more from a holiday cottage! Bed extremely comfortable and the woodburner was very easy to work and kept us warm all weekend. We’ll be back very soon. Thank you ever so much xxxx

Sunday 10th November 2013 – Lisa and David;
This was our first trip here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottages are beautiful and we had time to relax and chill. We were surprised at how gorgeous the barns were and we really felt at home even though we were on holiday. Even tried to learn to ride a bike and did ok! Loved the cosy log burner and just chilling, watching DVD’s We will definitely be back and recommending you! x

Sunday 3rd November 2013 – Mark, Donna and Simba the dog;
A great palce to switch off and relax. Phones off! We felt rejuvenated and so did the dog! We would definitely come again. Fabulous holiday cottage. Loved the local beer! x

Sunday 27th October 2013 – Julie and Justin;
Perfect weekend! The barn cottage is so cosy and special and the log burner was such a treat! Very romantic atmosphere with the candles and peaceful surroundings. The breakfast hamper was excellent! You have thought of everything! We celebrated our 15th anniversary here and decided to eat in rather than go out because we loved the barn so much. Thoroughly recommend the Curry Inn at Needham Market. We will be recommending this place to our friends and family for their holidays and definitely be back soon. Thank you

Friday 20th September 2013 – Marilyn and Rob with Bella & Rosie the dogs;

It must be special over the holiday season

Sunday 18th August 2013 – Paul & Angela:
A great place to stay for a mini-break. Really peaceful and relaxing. Highlights – Churches here at Crowfield and also in Lavenham. The “Under the pier show” on Southwold Pier is a must! Thanks for the time to relax and unwind in romantic surroundings!

What a wonderful experience, everything you could possibly want and more. From the warm, friendly greeting from Carl, to the lovely breakfast basket.

Friday, 28th of June, 2013, Bill & Rosemary: 
We were recommended Woodfarm Barns by friends who holidayed here whilst looking for a home to rent. They said how lovely it is and it certainly lived up to expectations. As you walk from the car park into the lovely development of the cottage barns and the garden area everything looks very romantic! Deben Barn was just right for two people and our dog. The enclosed garden was great; perfect for dogs. The Barn is very well equipped and a lovely comfy bed. Carl was very friendly and welcoming. He seems to have thought of everything.

Friday, 14th of June, 2013, Patricia & Brian: 
We had to visit Suffolk due to illness in the family. Being able to come back in the evenings to such peaceful and beautiful place as Deben Barn made a sad visit much more enjoyable. Beautiful cottage. Thank you

Monday, 24th of September, 2012, Dawn & Paul with Sandy & Scamp the dogs:
Our second visit to Woodfarm, having previously stayed at The Granary. Once again we had a lovely relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. Made to feel very welcome by Carl and great location.

Sunday, 5th of August, 2012, Deirlove:
We’ve had a wonderful stay in Deben Barn. It’s perfect for a family break with a baby and a toddler. The enclosed garden is especially thoughtful – it meant our little girl could run around outside safely (allowing her parents a little break!) Wonderful holiday

Monday, 23rd of July, 2012, Patti & Clive with Stan & Petra the dogs:
