Friday 10th March 2017 – Katherine, Alan and Casper with Monty the dog;

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.

May it be a healthy, happy and prosperous new year for all!

The barn is well placed for getting out and about, we had a trip to Southwold and Aldeburgh. An excellent short break and we will definitely be looking to book again in the future.

Friday 13th February 2015 – Faye and Rob with Archie the dog;

We loved our three night stay here. The breakfast hamper from Carl on arrival was a delight and went down a treat the following morning. Archie (puppy Labrador) enjoyed the secure garden where he did decide to keep himself happy by stealing the logs from the hedge! We went to Needham Lake which is a good walk and lovely scenery. Archie enjoyed this too as he met lots of friendly dogs. Framlingham Castle, is highly recommended – a lovely place to visit and dog friendly. Stonham Barns is a good place for gifts. A must, is Southwold beach, Archie loved it! Overall what a great place this Barn was, just perfect from comfort and warmth, to location. We will be recommending Wood Farm Barns to family and friends and hopefully will return again.

Friday 6th February 2015 – Richard and Sandi with Mollie & Fritz the dogs;

Another fantastic and relaxing break – thanks Carl. Lots of walks with our dogs at Southwold and surrounding area.

See you at the end of this month, for the Pop up restaurant – can’t wait!

Friday 23th January – Dawn and Paul with Sandy & Scamp the dogs;

We have had yet another fantastic and relaxing break at Wood Farm Barns. This is our first stay in Alde Barn and we have loved the beautiful layout. As always, we were welcomed by Carl, the perfect host and spent our time relaxing locally. We normally drive down to Dunwich and Walberswick for beach walks with the dogs but this time we have all been lazy after enjoying walks closer to home on the public footpaths. Thanks to Carl for another wonderful break. We are already booked to return later in the year!

Monday 15th December 2014 – Martyn and Kirsty with Max the dog;

A fantastic and surprisingly warm and well insulated cottage especially for this time of year.

Friday 19th December 2014 – Joy with Archie the dog;
Cozy/stylish perfect. Archie the dog didn’t really want to go home. Loved Debenham – met friends at The Angel – wonderful , peaceful, loved the festive feel. Crowfield Church was ‘magic’. Thank you, hope to return during the summer. Happy New Year.

Monday 22nd December 2014 – Trish and Carl with Ruby the dog;

Another fantastic stay at Woodfarm Barns. We stayed back in August. There was still plenty more to do in December. We enjoyed all the festive touches and the lovely sunny walks with the dog along the river Gipping at Dunwich Heath and Walberswick and then finally Eye, where the Four Horseshoes pub was extremely friendly and welcoming to us with dog in tow. Great food and atmosphere. Thanks again Carl for thinking of everything and making us feel so at home.

Sunday 30th November 2014 – Graham and Alex with Poppy the dog;
We would like once again to thank Carl for the lovely warm welcome and wonderful relaxing stay in the Farmhouse. An enjoyable and chill out 5 days. Loved using the Aga and spending cosy nights in front of the open fire with a glass of wine. Can’t wait to book our next visit soon!

Monday 17th November 2014 – Anne, Robert, Marian, Dave, Ceri and Paul with Branston the dog;
A very enjoyable ‘big birthday’ stay here at Woodfarm House – so much so we’re booked to come back next year! We were spoilt for choice in deciding where to visit in Suffolk – Thornham walks is worth a visit, as are Lavenham and Woodbridge. Aldeburgh is also a lovely seaside location with quaint shops and dog friendly tea

Sunday 16th November 2014 – Tom and Vic with Dolly the dog;
On arriving at the Granary I thought I had walked into Snow Whites Cottage. It is simply beautiful with all the home comforts we require. My lovely boyfriend booked the trip for my birthday and on the Saturday he proposed! There could have been no better place that it could have happened. To make it even lovelier our Chihuahua Dolly could share our special moment. We will be back.

Friday 14th November 2014 – John and Alison with Dipper the dog;
Our first visit to the Granary. The welcome basket was a lovely touch and milk in the fridge for our cuppa on our arrival. It’s a home from home; every detail so well done! Lovely views, fab walking with the dog. We have really enjoyed our few days and will be back again in the future.

Friday 7th November 2014 – Jenny and Derek with Rosie & Poppy the dogs;
Our 6th visit to Woodfarm Barns and another ‘pop – up’ restaurant this weekend. As always, so very enjoyable. Mark’s food is superb – delicate dishes, beautifully presented. A work of Art! Carl’s welcome never fails and he treats everyone like long lost friends! This whole complex is a little gem in the Suffolk Countryside. We just love coming up here as do the dogs

Friday 31st October 2014 – Soph and Dan;
Another fantastic weekend at the Granary Barn. Our second visit to what is a beautiful renovation of this historic barn. We really don’t want to leave as it feels like ‘home’. Thank you Carl for offering such a wonderful place to stay. I am sure we will be back very soon.

Monday 27th October 2014 – Martin and Jo with Billy the dog;
Our 4th stay at WFB’s – 2nd time in the Granary Barn. We come here for our getaway from it all breaks and Woodfarm Barns is the perfect place for it. Thornham Walks; great for walking the dog, (look out for the deer), the walk to the local church through the fields is perfect to wear us and Billy out. Zeera the local Indian takeaway hit the spot as usual (delivered so we didn’t have to venture out). Thanks Carl for letting out your fab property – we’ll be back again.

Friday 24th October 2014 – The Harvey’s and Rigby the dog;
Celebrated our 22nd Wedding Anniversary in style; beautiful barn. The view from the bedroom window was lovely. First morning woke up to delightful birdsong and the night sky was full of the brightest stars because of no light pollution. Thank you for the thoughtful touches – bacon, eggs etc. The surroundings were very good. The Highwayman served us a lovely anniversary meal.

Friday 10th October 2014 – Vee and Bear the dog;
A fabulous stay here in the very comfortable, private Granary Barn. A great base for exploring. Minsmere, Dunwich, Walberswick are all fabulous for walks with plenty of pubs and tea rooms. Everywhere is dog friendly! Walking from the Church along the lane is not to be missed. Breakfast hamper was wonderful and had a great selection plus a bonio for Bear! It’s a haven of calm here and we will be back.

Monday 6th October 2014 – Sharon and Steve with Jay the dog;
Another great break at WFB’s. As always comfortable and relaxing stay with the added feel of ambience and the log burner is a fantastic feel good factor. Good place for the dog to relax too!

Monday 29th Sept 2014 – Terry and Deborah with Shadow, Saffi & Ice the dogs;
Well what can we say other than BRILLIANT. Carl thank you for making the stay so perfect. Our 3 huskies have had a great time as well as Terry and I. All the special touches make it perfect. This is our first time away with our dogs and we will be back again. We promised ourselves 5 days with NO television and we sure didn’t even turn it on as we spent the evenings bbqing and chilling. P.s dog tags – fantastic idea.

Friday 26th September 2014 – Dave and Julie with Bailey & Bentley the dogs;
What a lovely find. It was great to find such a lovely place who are happy to make welcome our 2 lovely pups. Facilities are great, cosy and comfortable with lots of great places to visit. We will be back to visit many we didn’t have time for. The Black Horse at Thorndon was very welcoming of the 2 dogs in the bar and Carvery excellent. See you again soon.

Monday 22nd September 2014 – Kelly and Chris with Oskar the dog;
We have had a lovely stay here at the Granary. Absolutely fabulous. So nice to find somewhere that our dog is welcome and near so many great places. The breakfast hamper was a welcome start to our holiday (and put to good use). We had a fantastic walk out to Minsmere, with fish and chips looking over the fantastic view. Thanks to Carl for making us welcome and making sure we have enjoyed ourselves. Great stay!

Friday 19th September 2014 – Katherine, Sinbad, Sophie, Alice and Anna;

Sunday 14th September 2014 – Gill and Jim with Penny the dog;
This is our 2nd visit. Such a lovely place to stay and recharge the batteries – just so relaxing. Thank you Carl for being you and making Woodfarm Barns a wonderful place to stay and making us and Penny feel so welcome. We have all had such a lovely time again.

Monday 8th September 2014 – Dawn and Paul with Sandy & Scamp the dogs;
We are on our 6th visit here and still love it as much as our 1st visit. Although only an hour away from home for us, WFB’s is the perfect treat away from the stresses of work and we can feel ourselves relax as soon as we arrive here. The dogs love it too and we always make sure they get their ‘beach fix’ with trips to Dunwich, Minsmere and Walberswick. Thank you Carl for yet another wonderful break at your beautiful accommodation. Hope to be back again in March!

Sunday 25th August 2014 – Danny and Barb with Gus & Hector the dogs;
A Much needed and relaxing break in what is close to the perfect accommodation. The Granary is a stunning place to stay if you want to chill. Sadly the sofa’s were a bit too comfortable after a glass of wine or two! Gus and Hektor our two wire haired Vizlas’s thought it the perfect location too! The Whitehorse at Easton had fantastic food and were very dog friendly. All in all a great and relaxing week.

Friday 22nd August 2014 – Jeanette and Keith with Molly the dog;
Another lovely stay at WFB’s. The Granary is a lovely, cosy retreat and a great place to relax and unwind. Carl is the perfect host as always. The deli basket was amazing! Think we’ve got a taste for Suffolk Gold now! A lot of thought , energy, blood, sweat and tears have gone into making this a lovely place to stay. You should be very proud of what you have achieved here Carl. Wishing you all the best for future years and who knows; you could have Woodfarm Boats in a year or two??

Friday 1st August 2014 – Tracey and Matt with Bogey & George the dogs;
This was our first stay here at WFB and hopefully the first of many more!! What a beautiful setting. We absolutely love it here and our dogs have enjoyed every minute too. Sizewell beach was perfect for a late afternoon outing. Aldeburgh was lovely too; best fish & chips & ice creams. Framlingham had a lovely nature reserve walk with delicious cream teas at the Castle Inn. Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

Monday 25th July 2014 – Ryan and Suzy with Pepper the dog;
A lovely relaxing time spent here at the Granary. Took a trip to Minsmere – beautiful and perfect for our dog Pepper to enjoy her first trip to the beach. Carl has thought of everything that you could possibly need for a lovely break in the countryside. The secure garden was great for Pepper and allowed us to relax knowing she was safe. We enjoyed using the BBQ and a trip to the Blackhorse for some amazing pub grub. All in all a Fab weekend!

Friday 18th July 2014 – Joyce and James with Sophie & Rosie the dogs;
A very relaxing time and the weather was exceptional. Lots to do and see. Spacious garden for our dogs to roam around. Thank you Carl.

Friday 11th July – Steve and Heather with Jet & Bran the dogs;
Our 4th visit! We have returned again to the Granary for a few days of rest and relaxation. Carl as friendly as always and an excellent host. All the extra’s make this a lovely holiday. Framlingham on Tuesday’s for the market, Helmingham Hall for lunch in the Coach House tearooms – delightful! Suffolk is a favourite of ours and The Granary feels like a home from home. Thanks again, we will be back

14th November 2014 – Karen and Alex & Elvis the dog;

24th October 2014 – Kirsty and Hayden & Gatsby the dog;
Wow, Wow, Wow!! Just as I had imagined. Cannot wait to return next year with the rest of the clan. A lovely warm welcome from Anne and her daughter. Our puppy will have fond memories of this wonderful place. Visited the Victoria Pub for a wee dram and bite to eat, they couldn’t have been more welcoming; even a bowl of water for our Spaniel Gatsby. Thanks for sharing this wonderful hideaway
with us.

Monday 28th July – Helen and Hilary & Stanley & Basil the dogs;
Fantastic little place away from it all! Carl is very welcoming and has thought of so many little details; the breakfast basket supplies were great. Best little holiday detail was the ‘I’m on holiday dog tags’. The barn is lovely and the fenced off garden is perfect for the dogs. Would love to come back

Sunday 20th July – Hayley and Dean & Mollie the dogs;
What hasn’t Carl thought of? Nothing!! Even down to the spare dog towels and the dog tags. Lots of peace and quiet; Just what we needed. Mollie our dog didn’t want to leave. Thanks Carl for a great break, you make everyone so welcome. We will be back.

Thursday 17th July – Carole and Colin & Rosie the dog;
At Last somewhere that welcomes dogs and has lovely accommodation and gardens with high standards. Pub food was as promised very good. The Highwayman not only welcomed dogs but supplied ours with cold chicken and veg on a plate! Thanks Carl for a lovely pond to sit by and the use of bikes, dvd’s and books. In fact everything we could possibly wish for..Perfect.

Friday 18th July – Carolyn and Keith & Max the dog
Another smashing break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Think Carl has got it just right! Love the little touches of the décor especially the new ‘flower bed’. Plenty of walks for Max, lovely countryside; will definitely be back.

Friday 4th July – Irene and Len & Bushy the dog;
After a disastrous journey we reached a little bit of heaven. We guessed it would be great when booking from the warmth of Carl’s introduction. Every possible need was met and all of the little touches that make the difference between good and superb. Our only regret was not having found this sooner! Couldn’t comment on the places to visit; how could we tear ourselves away from heaven!

Friday 14th November 2014 – David and Janine with Harry the dog;
Came with the objectivce of relaxing. This we achieved with ease. Lovely little place, nice and quiet. The dog (Harry) made some
new friends. The shoulders have returned to their normal position. Thoroughly enjoyed! Thanks Carl

Friday 24th October 2014 – Magnus, Tracey and Jules with Gunnarr the dog;
We had a lovely stay in Deban Barn. Gunnarr our Irish Water Spaniel loved all the different walks we took him on. Would really recommend Walberswick – beautiful village – lovely walk and great photography. Dunwich and Sizewell beaches good too! Rendlesham Forest (nr Woodbridge) also great for dogs. All in all great! Looking forward to our new year re visit!

Friday 26th September – Neil and Sue with Frank and Tom the dogs;
Our stay at WFB’s has been everything we hoped it would be. The opportunity to bring the dogs has made it a complete experience. We have travelled, wined and dined, walked and visited places we have always wanted to go to. A thoroughly recommended stay!

Monday 29th September 2014 – Carol and Andy with Charley & Harvey the dogs;
We have had a very relaxing few days made even better by the lovely Deban Barn. We have toured around and been to some beautiful places. It is so nice to find lovely accommodation which enjoys having dogs. Our two dogs have thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Will 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.

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.

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.

Friday 7th November 2014 – Sarah and Neil with Alice the dog;
To say we are on our 5th visit to Woodfarm Barns… says it all! Having stayed at the Granary x2 and the Farmhouse x1 and Deban Barn x1, we are working our way around all of the wonderful barns! Our dog Alice loved the garden as well as the walks to the church and over the fields every morning. A visit to Southwold was fun, the Lord Nelson for a pint of Adnams is a must. Returned to the barn for a snooze and then we had a date at the ‘Pop up’ Restaurant in the Farmhouse; 7 courses of outstanding food! Carl your vision of making guests feel so welcome and offering another dimension to their say never ceases to amaze us. To walk back from the Farmhouse along the path listening to the waterfall with a full moon showing the way to gipping barn is a memory we will always cherish. Thank you..visit number 6 is being planned!

Friday 24th October 2014 – Paul and Claire with Vegas the dog;
Thanks for a wonderful first holiday with Vegas. He loved being able to go in and out from the garden without any worry he would go walkabout! Everything a guest could need is provided and we’ve had a great relaxing weekend. Thanks.

Sunday 5th October 2014 – Adrian and Julie with Illy & Jim the dogs;
The barn is cosy, warn and very relaxing. It has everything you need. The site is clean safe and welcoming. Had some great days out at Dunwich Heath, Framlingham and Hadleigh…so much more. Thank you.

Sunday 21st September 2014 – Nicky and Jase with Holly the dog;
The barn is a welcoming and cosy home from home with all that we needed for a fabulous holiday. The secure garden was a godsend for Holly our dog. The quality of the food in the breakfast basket was exceptional and such a nice touch that you don’t get anywhere else! We really enjoyed visiting Framlingham Castle, Aldeburgh, Beccles, Stowmarket and Lavenham. Loads of really nice places with lots of character with individual shops and coffee bars and pubs – Just divine. We had a lovely time. Thank you Carl for the time and attention you put into this fabulous place.

Monday 5th September 2014 – Bill and Mary with Rosie and Mizzy the dogs;
Everything we could have wished for and more! Lovely cottage, so peaceful and relaxing. We will be coming back as soon as possible.

Monday 18th August 2014 – Scott, Barbara and Baby Justine with Lucy the dog;
Lovely barn in a very peaceful location. Completely different to what we are used to! Very comfortable bed and surroundings in the cottage, particularly like the breakfast basket a lovely touch! Had some great dog walks in the surrounding areas close to the barns and good days out. Aldeburgh and Southwold beach beaches have dog friendly sections so good for days out. Needham lakes and nature reserve is another good place to go with the dog and maybe a picnic. Very relaxed after our break and hope to return back again sometime. Thank you!

Friday 15th August 2014 – Jacqui and Steve with Sasha the dog;
Beautiful break in stunning accommodation. This was our first visit to Suffolk and the Barns and we were totally blown away with the beauty of both. We had some lovely days out, and some delightful walks with the dog. The fresh air and walks have really knocked her out as she is always the last one up in the morning! This never happens at home! We will definitely be back again soon and will recommend to our friends and family. Thank you for a delightful stay.

Friday 8th August 2014 – Rebecca and David with Dougal the dog;
This is our first visit to Suffolk having driven the long drive from Edinburgh with Dougal. Gipping barn really does look and feel even more amazing than it looks on the website pics. A Summer stay meant we didn’t need the underfloor heating. Carl has thought of everything and the most important thing.. Dougal was safe and happy in the enclosed spacious garden and this meant we were happy and unstressed. My husband said ‘idyllic’ and this sums it up. A beautiful and peaceful place. With plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. Loved it and will recommend!

Friday 1st August 2014 – Peter and Maureen with Moyna the dog;
Wow! What a fantastic place to stay. Really loved all the interior design and the gardens – so much thought has gone into making Woodfarm Barns an extra special place to stay. Brilliant too to have a dog safe garden where Moyna could ‘chill out’! Carl is the perfect host, not in your face but there if you need him. Lots of lovely places to visit in the area. Our favourite; fish and chips on Dunwich Beach and also lovely meals at the Four Horseshoes. Going home relaxed and ready to book a return visit.

Monday 28th July 2014 – Adam and Heleyna & Seb the dog;
An excellent base for exploring the Suffolk countryside. The barn is beautiful and the attention to detail made our stay extra special. The welcome basket was a great surprise and made for a lovely breakfast. I would recommend a visit to Jimmy’s Farm, Aldeburgh is a nice little town. We enjoyed a lovely walk along the coastline. Thank you Carl for a wonderful stay, we will be recommending Woodfarm Barns to our friends.

Friday 25th July 2014 – Alex and Graham & Poppy the dog;
This is our 2nd visit to WFB and we are pleased to say that it was just as excellent as our first stay. We have had a fantastic stay and Poppy has enjoyed some wonderful walks as well as enjoying relaxing in the enclosed garden. Can’t wait to return.

Monday 21st July 2014 – Kelly and Ryon with Poppy the dog;
We had the most relaxing and quiet break away – exactly what we came here for! The barn was lovely and the breakfast hamper was such a thoughtful idea. The grounds are beautiful. We can’t wait to return. Our dog Poppy loved it just as much as us.

Friday 11th July – Paul and Nigel & Lottie the dog;
We have had a wonderful time her along with Lottie our Westie. Have thoroughly enjoyed this barn and was so impressed when we first entered inside! So pleased with all of the facilities. Look forward to returning soon.

Thursday 26th June-Paul and Judith with Stan the Staffie;

Friday 13th June – Pam and Kevin with Lottie, Busby & Majesty the Yorkies;
Thank you for our stay at Woodfarm Barns. Everything about this place is wonderful. From the fantastic breakfast basket (bacon was the best I’ve ever tasted!) to the doggie facilities and everything else in between. We have all had a fantastic time and we will be back; if you’ll have us!!!

28th September 2014 – Geoff and Barb with Taz & Bobby;
Thank you so much for your warm welcome. We had a lovely relaxing week in the barn. We could not fault anything with the place. It’s very clean, warm and relaxing. We will be back. It was everything we wanted for a relaxing holiday and more. ~Thank you once again, we will be back very soon.

Monday 30th June – Janet and Andy & Buster the dog;
Lovely peaceful setting and beautiful barn and grounds all lovingly maintained. Managed to get out to Southwold Arts Festival and go in the pub with the dog to miss the rain. Would highly recommend this type of holiday away from the stress of work. Thank you for making us welcome.

Thursday 23rd June – Bill, Lissie with Archie & Panda;
This has been our first experience away from home for the pups, so it was a bit of an adventure for us all. You appear to have thought of everything Carl, it worked so well. We had a wonderful stay in the beautiful barn set in a wonderful location; peaceful with so much to do. Wonderful welcome and a lovely breakfast basket. We will be back.

Friday 20th June 2014 – Craig and Jackie with Bailey and Dexter the dogs;
Carl you have created the perfect little retreat in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. The barns are decorated to a very high standard with everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. The enclosed gardens and picturesque walk on the doorstep are perfect for the dogs. Thank you for the very warm welcome, can’t wait to return

Friday 16th May 2014 – Peter and Debbie with Buddy & Teddy the dogs;
Having read through many of the other comments, there really isn’t much more than can be added. We had a lovely stay, it’s peaceful and relaxing and the owner is lovely and leaves you to it. The dogs have had a lovely time here and it’s so close to where we live

Sunday 9th November 2014 – Lyn and Mike with Burt & Tyler the dogs;
Tylers best bits – Seaside and fish & chips at Southwold. Berts – lots of walks every day. Mikes best bits – Pop up restaurant. (recommend any one to come to ‘pop up’ restaurant.) Lyns best bit – no back pain and peace and quiet. Found 2 good new walks – see booklet in stour barn; Earl Stonham & Debenham.

Friday 24th October 2014 – Nick and Shirl with Benson the dog;
We had a wonderful stay here, visiting many places and taking many long walks. In particular the walk from Manningtree to Flatford Mill and on to Dedham and back. 8 miles in all and still Benson was wanting more! This is a wonderful place and I’m sure we will return.

Friday 17th October 2014 – Sandie and Richard with Mollie and Fritz the dogs;
Another fantastic stay at WFB, this time for a week! The weather was very kind and we took advantage of this to see more of Suffolk. Loved Walberswick and Aldeburgh and the many picturesque villages and pubs. Thanks Carl for your warm welcome (hugs as well) and loved the breakfast basket, we’ll be back soon.

Monday 10th October 2014 – Sarah and Jon with Rolo the dog;
We’ve had a wonderful, relaxing stay – exactly what we needed!! Thank you Carl for the warm welcome and fantastic breakfast basket.

Can’t fault it. Very well maintained, great place to explore from. Had a great time.
Sunday 28th August 2014 – Christine and Lindsay with Alice and Logan the dogs
We have enjoyed a lovely relaxing start to our holiday. Our dogs made themselves at home straight away and really appreciated the private garden which was great for letting them out when they needed to go out. All Saints Church at Crowfield is a beautiful Wooden structure which is well worth the short walk. Dunwich Beach was lovely and Alice and logan enjoyed chasing their ball in the sea. Lavenham is full of character and we enjoyed a good lunch at the Swan which is dog friendly. Drove to Long Melford and visited the church there. Then visited Clare which has something for everyone. Thank you Carl and Alex

Friday 22nd August 2014 – Paul and Debbie with Winston the dog;
Only managed to book in for a couple of days as a last minute booking. Had a lovely day out at Dunwich and sampled fish and chips. Walks and beach was good. Information provided has been excellent but wished we had more time, looks like another visit looming in order to explore further. Facilities at the cottage were fab. Hope to see you soon.

Friday 15th August 2014 – Jaqui and Russell with Flynn the dog;
We have had a very restful and relaxing week just what we needed. Even managed to leave the rain behind! Our Barn was a delight to stay in and the breakfast basket a lovely treat! Plenty of information of places to visit – our favourites being Bury St Edmunds and Framlingham. We will be recommending you to all our friends.

Monday 11th August 2014 – Julz and Janice and Mr P the dog
Thanks to Carl, the warm welcome here at Stour Barn made myself, my friend and my elderly dog feel very welcome. The location proved to be central to explore the countryside and the coast of Suffolk. The Barn itself is well appointed, quirky and has everything we could have wanted for a relaxing and tranquil break. We don’t want to go home! Look forward to coming back in the near future. Thanks again.

Friday 8th August 2014 – Elaine and Graeme with Sydney the dog;
Thanks to Carl for making us feel so welcome in his fantastic dog friendly barns, such a good find. As with other guests, the breakfast basket was a firm favourite and very much enjoyed. Great base for lots to do and website was an excellent source of information for this. Enjoyed the Chilli Farm and recommended the savoury tea. Great Dog walks ; Debenham and Thornham. Hope to return soon.

Friday 20th June 2014 – Craig and Jackie with Bailey and Dexter the dogs;

Carl you have created the perfect little retreat in the beautiful Suffolk countryside.

Another great stay. Nice to be welcomed especially by someone polite enough to laugh at my jokes! We will be back again!

Sunday 7th June 2014 – Paul and Kim with Ruby the dog;

What a wonderful place! We don’t want to leave. Carl and the team are very friendly and genuine. All the good points have been noted by other people so I shan’t go on. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Sunday 1st June 2014 – Bryan and Christine with Sugar the dog;

We had a lovely time, thanks Carl for the warm welcome, Stour is the favourite barn so far. We hope to be back again before too long for our third visit. Highly recommend the local produce – it’s great to bring it back and relax

Sunday 1st June 2014 – Peter and Tracey with Murphy the dog;

What a wonderful, peaceful setting. It was Murphy’s first holiday with us and the bar has been set to a high standard. Great food basket. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to explore suffolk. Carl is a great host who will be recommended to all our friends

Friday 30th May 2014 – Bev and Jane with Lucy the dog;

Lovely stay here. Would recommend Helmingham Hall if you are into gardens. We loved Orford and Dunwich Heath (National Trust) at the seaside. Framlingham, Lavenham and Debenham for picture book houses. Really liked the pond with the Koi Carp

Monday 26th May 2014 – Robert, Tracey and Tyler with Freddie the dog;

Great mid week break. Loved the barn and the breakfast basket was a lovely touch. Cosy and relaxing and feels very homely. Carl has made a brilliant job of making it a home from home. Freddie the boxer has loved it too, especially his private garden! We will definately be returning in the Summer of maybe in the Winter for a cosy Winter break

Monday 26th May 2014 – Mark and Louise with Una the dog;

We enjoyed our stay in Gipping barn very much, Una loved the walks and the socialising. We loved the cottage and i’m sure we will return

Sunday 25th May 2014 – Andy and Cat with Mutley the dog;

This was our first visit to the Granary and it was an absolute pleasure. It was made even more enjoyable as we were allowed to bring Mutley! Carl was here to welcome us and the breakfast basket was spot on! We liked the history behind Woodfarm and enjoyed the picture book detailing the restoration. The local area was extremely scenic with easy access; walking Mutley was a joy. We will definitely stay again as the Granary was ideal

Friday 16th May 2014 – Hilary and Peter and Bevis the dog;

First visit to this area, found many interesting places to visit and good walks for the dog. Cottage very comfortable and a warm welcome

Friday 16th May 2014 – Colin and Sharon with Murphy the dog;

The Granary barn is a lovely cottage that has been transformed into a perfect place to stay. The garden and surrounding fields have been perfect for our dog Murphy. The closeness to the coast was a big plus and there are many beautiful small towns to visit and source freshly caught fish. Thanks to Carl for a very enjoyable break, good luck for the future

Friday 16th May 2014 – Hannah with Harry and Ronnie the dogs;

Mini break for their dogs to go to their excellent groomers in Mendlesham. Thank you for a restful place for our weary heads. We will return in September for their next groom

Friday 16th May 2014 – Peter and Debbie with Buddy & Teddy the dogs;

Having read through many of the other comments, there really isn’t much more than can be added. We had a lovely stay, it’s peaceful and relaxing and the owner is lovely and leaves you to it. The dogs have had a lovely time here and it’s so close to where we live and will certainly be back and no doubt will bring other members of our family. Excellent!

Monday 12th May 2014 – Ali and Craig with Thor & Phoenix the dogs;

We had such a lovely stay here. it’s such a great location, so quiet yet so much to do on our doorstep! We had a great time and all the palces we visited but Walberswick was one of our faves; such a charming little and the Anchor was so dog-friendly, they made such a fuss of our boys. The Kings Head in Woodbridge also had lovely food and were extremely dog friendly. The barn was gorgeous, it had everything we needed and more, Carl has done a fantastic job and has thought of everything you could need for a perfect break. Our dogs had a great time as did we!

Friday 9th May 2014 – Richard and Liz with Holly the dog;

We have so enjoyed our stay at the Granary Barn. It’s a beautiful cottage and you have thought of everything to help make our stay perfect! Thank you. We ate out at the Four Horseshoes – very good, and the Shepherd & Dog – Excellent! We did some great walks around Debenham and Earl Soham – The home brew at the Victoria in Earl Soham was excellent!

Monday 26th May 2014 – Robert, Tracey and Tyler with Freddie the dog;

Great mid week break. Loved the barn and the breakfast basket was a lovely touch. Cosy and relaxing and feels very homely. Carl has made a brilliant job of making it a home from home.

Friday 14th March 2014 – Bernadette with Otis & Tiny the dogs;

This was my first visit to the Granary and definitely not the last. I felt so at home here. Going out and about was wonderful but coming back was a joy. This was also my first visit to Suffolk. I was bowled over by how pretty it is, peaceful and laid back. Locally I went next door to Suffolk Surplus and came away with a bow-fronted tall-boy. I took the dogs to Southwold and they had a wonderful time on the enormous beach. Carl is a wonderful host but not intrusive. He has an absolute gem here anbd I wouldf recommend a stay here to anyone and defy them not to enjoy it! My dogs loved it too. They have never had so many walks. Our every day dog walk was next door to Crowfield Church and a yomp across the fields. Thank you so much Carl for a wonderful, ‘lives up to expectations’ break away from my busy life xx

Sunday 13th April 2014 – Kelly & Lee with Ellie the dog;

We will definitely be recommending Woodfarm barns to friends. Absolutely excellent, luxury 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

Sunday 16th March 2014 – Nick & Georgie with Dillon the dog;

Beautiful cottage, such a warm welcome from Carl. Breakfast hamper and dog biscuits a lovely touch. The barn has everything we needed. Lovely luxurious comfy bed and very peaceful. Great location, had lovely day trips Aldeburgh and Woodbridge. We will be back for sure xxxx

Friday 4th April 2014 – Rebecca & Duncan with Oscar the dog;

We’ve had a wonderful week in Gipping Barn. It’s beautiful and well–equipped with some great additional touches. Carl was very welcoming with informed us where to go, good walks etc. Much appreciated. Good pub/ restaurants are the Crown at Bildeston and the Anchor at Walberswick. Dunwich is the place to go with dogs; through the heather and along the beach – really good. Really recommend the Black Horse in Thorndon. All in all, a lovely few days

Friday 28th March 2014 – Laura with Liston the dog;

We’ve had a lovely week here and felt really relaxed. We’ve been out every day. The short walk to the church and back is great. Stonham Barns has a cafe’ there that does great smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. The Beauty Barn is great also. My dog fell asleep whilst I was pampered. A must is Dedham, which is very pretty with great walks. The coast is a short drive away, Dunwich Heath is worth finding, so too is Minsmere followed by fish n chips at Aldeburgh. Will come back 🙂

Monday 5th May 2014 – Mick & Anne with Casey the dog;

A lovely welcome form Carl. A stress-free break was just what we needed. The scenery and pubs were great. Hopefully we can stay longer next time x

Friday 17th April 2014 – Jo & Leo with Todd the dog;

A very warm welcome from Carl. A lovely cosy cottage with a great garden for the dog. We much appreciated the breakfast hamper. This is our first visit to Suffolk and we will definitely be back. We loved the peace and quiet and the dawn chorus was amazing. Walking down quiet country lanes and across fields with the dog has been a delight. Aldeburgh is well worth visiting, a real charming seaside place. So glad this place is on the internet. Thank you Carl for a relaxing break in a well-equipped, luxury holiday cottage

Friday 7th March 2014 – Neil & Sarah with Alice the dog;

The fact that we are on our 4th visit to 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 Golden Retriever 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

Friday 7th March 2014 – Emma & Catherine with Alfie and Ollie the dogs;

We have had such a wonderful time at Alde Barn. It has been peaceful and relaxing and the weather has been surprisingly good. We could not have hoped for a better week here. The dogs have really enjoyed it also. They have loved the chance to swim in the sea and will be sad to go. We have all enjoyed the woodburner and the lovely barn. Wonderful 🙂 Carl was really friendly and helpful; we will definitely be back. See you soon

Monday 3rd March 2014 – Jenny & Derek with Rosie & Poppy the dogs;

Another visit to the Granary and to eat at Carl & Mark’s Pop Up Restaurant again. This is a great experience with superb food and cookery lesson with Mark. Definitely recommended. You have a winning formula and we wish you the very best for the future. All in all, a great weekend, very many thanks to you both

Monday 24th February 2014 – Paul & Naomi and the dog;

What an amazing barn conversion. Totally loved reading about it’s building work and painstaking restoration. The finished article is a real credit to those involved. It’s cosy, luxurious, warm and comfy and VERY VERY beautiful! Spent a gorgeous day in Southwold with our little dog; the beach was lovely and very well maintained. We went to Lavenham and OMG, if you like something quaint and out of the ordinary you absolutely must go there! Best cream tea in the world at Chilli & Chives in the High Street. Freshly baked scones with lashings of fresh whipped cream and raspberry jam to die for! Some beautiful churches including Crowfield and Blythburgh. The barn was a fantastic find – we couldn’t have asked for more – we will be back soon! Thanks and love

Friday 14th February 2014 – Lynda & Mick with Bracken and Saffie the dogs;

What a gorgeous barn and a lovely warm welcome from Carl. Everything we expected and more. Beautiful area, amazing beaches. Must see’s are Lavenham for the quirky buildings and can strongly recommend the Swan for a fabulous afternoon tea. A walk up the lane to the beautiful church has to be done. Southwold is fantastic; like stepping back in time, with pastel coloured beach huts and traditional pier with lovely shops. Aldeburgh Beach – lovely pebbly beach – dog friendly at this time of year. We ate at the Four Horseshoes (dog-friendly) and The Highwayman – recommend both. Would love to come back xx

Sunday 23rd February 2014 – Claire and Bill with Hudson the dog;

Enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. It is so cosy with the lovely log burner. We had lovely meals at the Four Horseshoes and Anchor in Walberswick and particularly on Friday at 745pm! Great beach walks at Southwold and Walberswick with the dog; his first time at a beach; how he enjoyed it!

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 welcome basket of biscuits, eggs, fruit, mushrooms and tomatoes, coffee, tea, sugar, shampoo and shower gel all here! 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

Sunday 23rd February 2014 – David and Anna with Bugsy the dog;

Really lovely weekend – We just chilled and enjoyed the romance of our surroundings. Went into Southwold for a fresh fish dinner and a stroll around the shops. Lovely! We would recommend the Crown for really good pub grub and the beach at Dunwich for raw, natural beauty. Bugsy our Pug Cross loved running in and out of the sea and even though it was Saturday we were almost the only ones there. A great base for us and the dog to explore Suffolk xxx

Sunday 2nd February 2014 – Kevin and Teri with Bosun the Irish Terrier;

Thank you for a wonderful welcome and the great comforts and hospitality of Stour Barn. The attention to detail with the welcome pack, loo roll, shower etc so often not available in dog-friendly self-catering dwellings made life so much easier. We enjoyed it tremendously and will be back to visit the delights of Suffolk again. These barns will be our first choice of visit. Thank you again

Monday 20th January 2014 – Peter and Agatha with Santos and Lyka the dogs;

Thank you for creating such a beautifully unique escape. The dogs loved the local walks, in fact we all loved it so much we got lost:-) This was just the kind of retreat from London we were hoping to experience. A lot of thought, creativity and detail has gone into the design of this beautiful barn. We will most definitely be back this summer. Thank you again for the delightful hamper and fresh produce xx

Monday 27th January 2014 – Jo and Tony with Motley the dog;

Short break away from home and work. Fantastic place to unwind. Easy to walk our dog along the roads despite all the rain and flooded footpaths. Having a fenced garden was a bonus for the dog and the barn was snug and practical. The Indian takeaway delivered which was a bonus too and we also visited the Deli at the Chilli Farm. Thank you Carl, back in the summer

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! Luxurious! The dogs enjoyed themselves and we were glad of the 100% enclosed garden. 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 break with the dogs

Monday 3rd February 2014 – Clare and John with Doogie the dog;

Had an excellent weekend. Took a number of long dog walks with Doogie, our Golden Retriever. Had a good look around Woodbridge, a wonderful riverside town. Enjoyed good family food at the Four Horseshoes in Thornham Magna – very dog friendly. A great weekend break

Sunday 26th January 2014 – Bradley and Sophie with Ralph and Rodney the dogs;

We all had a lovely few days in this beautiful barn. Exactly what we needed for a short break away. Very comfortable and cosy. Ralph and Rodney our dogs appreciated the wood-burner after a few long walks and play time in the good sized garden! Overall very enjoyable and we will be back again. Thank you x

Monday 10th February 2014 – Richard and Sandie with Mollie the dog;

We had a lovely, cosy and romantic weekend. The was everything and more than we expected for a relaxing break. Enjoyed the breakfast hamper and the woodburning fire. Took the dog on walks nearby; the church is well worth a look. Also went to Southwold for the day and can really recommend a pie shop in the centre of town, especially the moo and blue pie! Thanks Carl for making us very welcome xx

Sunday 2nd February 2014 – Sheila and Colin with the dog;

We had a wonderful weekend in a cosy barn. It’s a great location for visiting surrounding villages, plenty to see and do. We used the log burner which took me back to being a little girl. Lovely walks for our dog in the area. The breakfast hamper was fab, thank you Carl for the warm welcome. We will return for another relaxing break

Monday 27th January 2014 – Rachel and Carl with Bev the dog;

The most perfect barn cottage for a relaxing peaceful break. Lovely welcome from Carl and we enjoyed the breakfast basket. Bev the dog enjoyed the Bonio. We have enjoyed a warm and cosy weekend, just what we need and was a perfect way to celebrate the week we were approved as adoptive parents! We made full use of the log fire, the dog loved it! Thank you for a wonderful weekend break x

Monday 13th January 2014 – Ness, Terry, Charlie and Caroline with Henry, Henry, Maisy & Winnie the dogs;

Thanks Carl for a fab weekend. Fantastic Cluedo house! Great weekend thanks

Sunday 5th January 2014 – Graham and Rita with Marley the dog;

Reading through the previous comments I think it’s clear that we all feel the same way. A perfect place to come and stay!

Friday 3rd January 2014 – Joanne and Katie with Piper the dog;

We had a brilliant time at Stour Barn. We felt very looked after and the special touches, eg the festive hamper were a real treat. There are lots of interesting places to explore, Walberswick being one of them. We even managed a couple of dog walks on the beach in Southwold, which was beautiful. I think its fair to say that bringing in 2014 was made very special by this lovely barn. We’ll definitely be recommending it to friends and hopefully we’ll get to come back again. Thanks x

Monday 30th December 2013 – Dawn and Martin with Reuben the dog;

A lovely break in a gorgeous little barn. Both of us are leaving having had a good relaxing break. And Reuben our dog enjoyed his holiday too! Will recommend to family and friends

Friday 3rd January 2014 – Hannah and Mark with Scout the dog;

Thank you for a lovely few days, the welcome and the peace and quiet

Monday 30th December 2013 – Mike and Irene with Beanie & Anastasia the dogs;

A lovely 3 day break in this cosy holiday cottage. So great to find a luxury place welcoming dogs and is actively geared for this. The welcome hamper was very much appreciated too. The local church is fantastic. Hope to be back!

Friday 27th December 2013 – Pete and Joanne with Eric the dog;

Lovely stress-free week in a fantastic holiday cottage with everything you could want. Some great days out at the coast with some great walks with the dog. Cheers Carl

Monday 9th December 2013 – Jenny & Frank with Lajoo and Pirdie the dogs;

A heart-warming, stress-busting week made all the more special by the little touches like the welcome hamper, the Christmas tree and decorations and Carl’s personal welcome, but especially his “absolutely nothing is too much trouble” personality. Everything has been thought of and we wanted for nothing during our stay. Great days out with the dogs and romantic evenings in reminded us how important it is to take time out and share these special breaks at these special places. Woodfarm Barns is one of those places. Great holiday

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-equipped, luxury cottage that allowed our two boxer dogs. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks a lot and we will definitely return

Friday 3rd January 2014 – Laura and Joe with Brando the dog;

Lovely cottage, just what we needed. Really cosy. Took a trip to the Queens head in Brandeston – lovely pub, good food and they made a fuss of the dog! Awesome wooden church down the lane from here and the owl sanctuary was great too. Thanks Carl! xx

Friday 29th November 2013 – Sue and Tony with Harvey & Billie the dogs;

Have had a very enjoyable mid-week break, bought for us by my daughter who also stayed in Alde Barn. Lovely home from home comforts. Carl has thought of everything; lovely welcome basket, comfortable bed, candles and best of all, underfloor heating. I don’t know who liked that more; us or our two dogs! Loved the enclosed garden; great for the dogs. Log fire made it really cottagey. Had a great day out at Minsmere beach near Dunwich. Very dog-friendly and they loved it. Only negative we can say is that we weren’t here long enough! We will definitely tell all our friends about these lovely barns and be returning very soon. Seems a great place to conme and spend Christmas with all the family. Thanks Carl

Sunday 10th November 2013 – Sue with Webb the dog;

As has been said many times, Carl has provided a warm, relaxing and very comfortable weekend retreat. Very dog friendly. Framlingham well worth a visit to the Saturday market. Sizewell beach is far better than it sounds. Southwold; beautiful seaside town, like going back in time on the lovely old pier. Thanks Carl

Friday 25th October 2013 – Rita with Hamish the dog;

A brilliant week. So relaxing and luxurious. Will definitely return!

Friday 11th October 2013 – Kerri and Matt with Sophie the dog;

Dog friendly – Framlingham Castle – 100% dog friendly – Adnams Brewery tour was excellent; great beer tasting and walk on the beach afterwards – Four Horseshoes pub was also excellent and dog friendly – Needham Lake was beautiful; a great dog walk.

A great palce to switch off and relax. Phones off! We felt rejuvenated and so did the dog! We would definitely come again. Loved the local beer! x

Sunday 24th November – Lisa and Anthony with Tizer the dog;

Had a great time. The cottage is beautiful and Carl really made us feel at home. Thanks again for letting us bring Tizer. He has had the worst start to life and it’s very difficult to find high quality, luxury dog-friendly places so thanks again! See you very soon (hopefully in January) x

Monday 18th November – Jenny and Derek with the dogs;

We are great fans of Woodfarm Barns and this is our 4th visit. We stayed in Woodfarm House the first time, as the barn development was taking place. And what a development it has become! Carl has done such a magnificent job in creating these superb, luxurious holiday cottages. The attention to detail is amazing and everything has been provided for the guests comfort. On top of that we always get a great welcome from Carl. So do the dogs! Thank you Carl, see you again soon

Monday 4th November 2013 – Lindsey and Joanne with Missy the dog;

This is our second trip to stay in Gipping Barn and again it didn’t disappoint, living up to our high expectations from our first visit. It is really peaceful and relaxing and Carl is the ideal host. We split our time between the local area and the coast. We visited Eye, which has a small chocolate shop, which we recommend. We took a trip to Southwold for coffee on the pier and a stroll along the beach, then on to Aldeburgh where we successfully completed a treasure trail around the town, followed by a bag of chips on the sea front. Another great weekend, which ‘Missy’ our dog loved too! No doubt we will be back again!

Friday 25th October 2013 – Pete and Sharon with Hollie the dog;

Our first visit to the Granary and it was lovely. Very cosy and comfortable. Had two good days out with our dog Hollie – 1st day to the Gainsborough trail and the 2nd to Framlingham Castle. Look forward to returning

Monday 2nd December 2013 – Helen and Richard with Johnny & Suzie the dogs;

Fabulous weekend in Orwell Barn. We had a great welcome from Carl. Loved the breakfast basket! Best mini-break ever with the two dogs, they loved the walks near here and it was so nice to be able to take the dogs for lunch with us. The Four Horseshoes was lovely – great food, as was the Victoria; great with the dogs! Will definitely be back next year. Loved it. So relaxing, cosy and peaceful. Thanks Carl

Monday 18th November 2013 – Fran and Mark;

Wow, what a fantastic area. Your Pop Up Restaurant was such a success! Both the evening meal and the Sunday lunch. Please do some more (we are!!!) The barn has all the comforts of home but with all the rural bliss and peacefulness. We will be back to sample some more of your hospitality! xxx

Friday 1st November 2013 – Pete, Tracy and Cain, plus the two staffies;

We’ve had a lovely weeks stay in Orwell Barn. Depsite the storm taking out power for 1 and a half days! Visited Southwold, Dunwich, Aldeburgh, Orford, Framlingham Castle and Debenham. The Hoppit Wood walk there is great. Also walked to Crowfield Church and beyond. The owl sanctuary at Stonham Barns is worth a visit too! Hope to come back again and see more of the area

Friday 18th October 2013 – Joe and Katherine (plus small bump) with Bailey the dog;

We’ve had a brilliant week. The cottage is lovely and so cosy with the fire on that we haven’t ventured far away. The dog loved it. Hope to be back soon

Friday 22nd November 2013 – Judy and Charlie with Louis the dog;

Very quirky cottage. We and the dog Louis had a lovely time. Bracing walks on Aldeburgh beach. Great local pubs. Really enjoyed the Victoria and the Four Horseshoes. Will certainly return

Friday 25th October 2013 – Liz, Keith, Claire and Kev with Rosie & Poppy the dogs;

We all had a good week, Carl was very helpful and gave us a great welcome. Lots to do and places to see taken from the guides and leaflets provided. We will definitely be back! Thank you

Friday 4th October 2013 – Penelope and Richard with Murphy and Bob the dogs;

Loved the barn; perfect for a few days escape from work, London commute etc. Our dogs loved the walks and are now going home for a rest. Walked from Dunwich to Winchelsea and back! We will definitely be back and recommend to others

Sunday 6th October 2013 – Vicky and Andy;

Lovely luxurious place to relax and sleep and take a well-earned break! Recommend the farmers market at Snape (1st Saturday of the month) Great atmosphere and lots of local produce to try before you buy! Likewise, stock up on goodies from Alder Carr Farm – the best ice cream we have ever tasted! Only downside is not having enough time to do more walking, cycling and eating 🙂 We will have to come back!

Friday 4th October 2013 – Dave and Caroline;

Great week (incredible weather!) The Granary was perfect for the two of us (plus dog!) Lovely breakfast hamper and great welcome from Carl (wine a nice touch) Recommend Emmetts at Peasenhall (Deli and Cafe) Alder Carr Farm Shop, Aldeburgh, Southwold and Walberswick. Would have loved to have tried 745pm but David was on holiday. Will have to come again (Hooray!)

Sunday 6th October 2013 – Ben and Emma with Bella the dog;

We came here for a relaxing break and that is exactly what we got! We took our dog for a walk and went for a bike ride but mostly we stayed in and enjoyed the quietness of the surroundings. This is a gorgeous place to stay and to get away from every day life. We will definitely be visiting again and recommending to family and friends!

Monday 7th October 2013 – Lee, Jo, Sean and Kellie, with Blue the dog;

Another great weekend and Woodfarm Barns! The farmhouse is beautiful and such a comfy, luxurious home. As usual Carl has thought of everything we could possibly need. After purchasing some meat from Neaves of Debenham, we would seriously recommend to visit them as we had steaks and bacon cured in Guiness and Treacle and a great leg of lamb for Sunday lunch. The Aga was an experience but produced some great meals to enjoy in the dining room! 2 trips to the Deli at the Chilli Farm to purchase brownies to die for and mouth-watering Binham Blue cheese. We had a lovely afternoon stroll round Aldeburgh and the local dog walks were enjoyed by humans and canine. All in all a perfect weekend and we’ll be back for more! Thank you Carl. See you next year. PS – sorry about all the additional more than usual beer and wine bottles for recycling!

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

A lovely cosy cottage with a good private garden for the dogs. A warm and peaceful retreat in which to unwind. Thank you!

Sunday 22nd September 2013 – Stephanie and John with Izzie the dog:

Great place to stay. Loved the breakfast and provisions. Framlingham has a great Deli and a great market on Saturdays to pick up lovely food and drink for a night in. Also great pubs and interesting shops. We loved the walks and so did the dog

Sunday 22nd September 2013 – Julian and Helen with Millie & Del the dogs;

Just finished a lovely week in this cottage for our first visit to Suffolk. Days spent exploring the local area and cosy evenings spent in the cottage, burning a log or two! What sets this apart from others is the lovely warm welcome, a breakfast basket that sets you up for your stay, smoked bacon was yummy……… Had to buy more from the farm shop. 🙂 Bottle of wine left for you to buy is a nice touch and it tasted good too! The folders with local information are really well put together…. Best we’ve had in any cottage and helped us make the most of our week here. For dog walkers there’s the “50 Walks in Suffolk” Book; The Constable walk is a must as it takes you through some stunning countryside. Some of the things we enjoyed over the week as follows: Lavenham, quaint old village with crooked houses, worth a look. Framlingham Castle is a must to visit. Dog friendly and amazing views from the top. Circular walk around the Mere with the dog too. Southwold with its coloured beach huts. The Southwold walk in the book takes you past the ferry and the local fishing area. Aldeburgh worth a visit for the fish and chips. The Mill Inn is very friendly with biscuits for the dog too. The Red Lion pub in East Bergholt is dog friendly and serves a nice lunch. Biscuits for the dog here too! The Victoria in Earl Soham, dog friendly again and a nice lunch. The Four Horseshoes in Thornham Magna – Lovely old pub; dog friendly and nice food. All in all we had a fantastic week here and would recommend to others and come back. Thanks. PS – Would recommend frequenting the local farm shops as we picked up some awesome food from them!

Monday 23rd September 2013 – Nick and Alice with Charlie the Bulldog;

Had a lovely few days, didn’t want to leave! We were lacking nothing and now don’t want to go home. Cannot fault the gorgeous cottage. Recommended by family and we were not disappointed. Charlie our bulldog loved it too.
Such a lovely stay thank you!

Monday 23rd September 2013 – Nigel and Elaine with Max the dog;

What a wonderful holiday cottage. From the moment we got here it was relaxing and Carl was very welcoming. The breakfast pack was great! Just what we needed after busy jobs in London. Long dog walks, used the bikes to cycle to the Chilli Farm and had a lovely meal at the Four Horseshoes. Would definitely recommend this holiday to family and friends. Thanks again xxx

Monday 23rd September 2013 – Dawn and Paul with Sandy & Scamp the dogs;

Our 4th holiday at Woodfarm Barns and our 3rd time staying in the Granary. The whole site is brilliantly presented and so many important details have been considered. We come for the calm and relaxing atmosphere and because we enjoy the luxury holiday accommodation but can still bring our two dogs. Dunwich and Walberswick offer great walks along the coastline and the dogs are allowed on the beach too! Thank you for yet another lovely break. We are planning our next holiday soon!

Monday 23rd September 2013 – Jan and Mike with Ruby the dog;

We had a wonderful few days holiday here. Carl really has thought of everything. A fab place to visit is Aldeburgh (A very classy seaside) Had an excellent meal in the Anchor in Woodbridge. Many thanks for your hospitality. Our dog Ruby loved the enclosed garden as well xxx

Monday 23rd September 2013 – John and Sylvia with Jasper the Bulldog:

Reading through the comments from previous guests we can do no more than agree with everything that has been written before. The nicest holiday cottage that we have stayed in. Carl you should be very proud of what you have achieved here. We really couldn’t criticise anything. We ate at the Four Horseshoes – excellent. We visited lots of places during the week and enjoyed them all. Luxury accommodation, welcome pack, quiet and peaceful location; all excellent, what more can we say? Difficult to improve on 10/10

Sunday 29th September 2013 – Colin and Sharon with Megan and Finaud the dogs;

Well, we promised we’d be back with the dogs and here we are 13 months later. Still the same warm welcome and same helpful Carl. We were struck immediately upon arrival by how different the whole place looks after another year to mature. We thought last year that it would be hard to improve on that but well done Carl, you’ve managed it. And finally yes, we will be back. Thanks again

Friday 13th September 2013 – Dave, Sarah & Barney the dog:

Had a really nice 4 days. The barn was comfortable and cosy and Carl is a great host. We went to Aldeburgh and Southwold, both lovely seaside towns and there are loads of great walks right on the doorstep. The Victoria in Earl Soham is a nice pub and very dog friendly. Thanks for a great holiday

Sunday 15th September 2013 – Lisa and Ben with Captain Shiny Ears (!) the dog:

Lovely base for a holiday, great to venture out and about with the dog from, or even just stay in and enjoy the barn itself. Really nice to see the renovation book and see how it came to be in it’s current (beautiful) condition. A lovely holiday was had by all, many thanks xxx

Friday 6th September 2013 – Tom and Abi with Dylan the dog;

The cottage was amazing, so cosy, luxurious and comfortable. Carl was a lovely host and we found the welcome to be lovely and warm. The breakfast hamper is a great touch. Our dog loved the walks by the local church and we had a lovely evening in the White Horse in Easton. Also had a drink in the Kings Head in Laxfield – cute dog-friendly pub and village. Spent an afternoon in Aldeburgh which we highly recommend. A great 5 days of relaxing holiday – Thank you xxx

Friday 30th August 2013 – Mel and Tricia with Gyp & Nero the dogs:

An extremely enjoyable 4 night break with all the facilities we could have wished for to ensure a memorable stay. Southwold and Thorpeness particularly interesting and definitely to be revisited.

Friday 23rd August 2013 – Helen and Darren with the dogs:

We have had a wonderful few days holiday and absolutely love the countryside here in Suffolk. The enclosed garden was just perfect for our dogs. Enjoyed Lavenham, Adleburgh, Southwold and Long Melford. Probably loved the walks in the local vicinity the most – so tranquil and peaceful. Crowfield Church is magnificent. We just wish we were still here for the flower show this weekend. Many thanks for your warm welcome Carl and the basket of goodies! A truly lovely place in a wonderful setting!

Friday 23rd August 2013 – Mark, Debs and Ellie the dog:

Our dog Ellie loved the enclosed garden which was a big bonus for us. The cleanliness was very good and all the mod cons worked well. Made a change to have a comfortable bed whilst away. Carl, you’ve done well and no need to change a thing; we will be sure to be returning

Sunday 25th August 2013 – Andrew and Jayne with Bertie & Alfie the dogs:

Lovely barn, comfortable bed and lovely to just sit about. Dogs loved the garden and thought they owned it after 5 mins! Great place to have a peaceful and restful weekend. Bacon is superb! Good info from Carl with everything you need to know about the area and where to take the dogs, the dog-friendly pubs and dog walks, thanks

Friday 16th August 2013 – Jeannie, John, Christine, Darren, Grandad, Jack, Reece, with Misty & Jazz, the dogs;

A memorable family holiday 🙂 Thank you for our lovely welcome basket, the house is adorable and Grandad was still getting lost on the last morning. Suffolk was very welcoming and our fave places were Lavenham, Dunwich Beach (great for the dogs!) The Chilli Farm for lunch is fab and the Chilli shop was hot stuff!! Buxhall Coach House is a must for great Italian food. Will recommend others to holiday here Carl 🙂 xxx

Sunday 18th August 2013 – Mike, Sally and Barney the dog:

A lovely week in a luxurious barn. Enjoyed exploring Suffolk – favourites were Aldeburgh, Southwold, Lavenham, Walberswick and Sutton Hoo. The cottage is of a high standard and the setting is wonderful and peaceful. Would and will, recommend to friends and family

Beuatiful barn, whole location perfect!! Breakfast hamper is very generous and lasts at least two days. Carl is a great host who really cares about your stay. Dogs loved it too. Fantastic place to bring them on holiday. Planning our next trip back, thanks xx

Monday 12th August 2013 – Marie and Peter with Nellie & O’Malley the dogs:

Lovely comfortable cottage in superb surroundings. Great walks for our two dogs. Recommend the Emmerdale farmshop at Yoxford, the butchers is open on a Sunday. Great place to visit is Dunwich – circular dog walks through gorse and heather with the pebbly beach just a stroll away. Thought the idea of extra wine in the kitchen a great idea – hic! The enclosed garden truly was, as our Houdini dogs didn’t get out! Loved the little church down the road; a good leg-stretch with the dogs first thing in the morning. Will definitely recommend the Woodfarm complex to others coming to Suffolk for a holiday. Thanks very much for a great romantic anniversary weekend

Friday 9th August 2013 – Sarah & Andy with Harvey & Murphy the dogs:

We’ve had a brilliant 4 nights at Alde Barn! Thank you Carl for making us feel so welcome. Cottage is brilliant and we loved the garden space for the dogs.

Sunday 11th August 2013 – Jack, Sophie & Honey the dog

We had a lovely couple of days staying in Orwell Barn. The holiday cottage is beautiful and very cosy! We had a very chilled weekend, nights in at the cottage and days spent exploring Southwold and Aldeburgh with the dog………. Just what we needed. Will definitely be returning 🙂

Sunday 4th August 2013 – Ian, Samantha and Melvin & Daisy the dogs;

This has to be one of the best mini-breaks we have had. Neither of us had been to Suffolk before but wow! We want to live here! We took Carl’s excellent local guide folder out in the car with us and explored. A must is Southwold and Aldeburgh. We visited twice and found everyone friendly and welcoming to our dogs. We also went back in time and visited Lavenham. We have both been impressed with the barn and general set up. Carl was very helpful and always at the end of the phone. Loved the breakfast basket on arrival too. Thank you for our holiday Carl and we will be back, hopefully in the near future

Monday 5th August 2013 – Kirsty, Josh and Pepper the dog:

Thank you Carl for making our stay so memorable. The barn is so perfect and we will never forget our stay here. Our stay has been so important as our wedding was on Saturday 3rd August. We couldn’t have chosen a better place to spend our first day as a married couple! Very romantic holiday. Thank you

Friday 2nd August 2013 – Mark, Verity, Freddie and Bono the dog:

We have enjoyed a wonderful week celebrating our beautiful boy’s first holiday.

Freddie especially enjoyed Easton Farm Park and our favourite was enjoying Aldeburgh in glorious sunshine. Thank you Carl for the warm, friendly welcome and great hospitality – We thoroughly enjoyed the bacon and other goodies!

Sunday 28th July 2013, Andy & Vicky & the two dogs:

Friday, 29th of March, 2013, Lee & Jo:

Fantastic relaxing romantic weekend break with the dog. The barn was decorated on high standard extremely comfortable, luxurious and spacious, perfect for the two of us and the dog. The log burner was the icingon the cake after days exploring, on this very cold Easter weekend!
