Alde Barn – the finer details
You enter this holiday cottage in Suffolk into a farmhouse style kitchen with a pretty antique farm table next to the stable door entrance so that in fine weather you can open up the door for a lovely airy start to the day and round to your ‘Indoor, Outdoor Garden Room’ with your very own private luxury Hot Tub.
The fully equipped kitchen is well laid out with ample work surface, a kitchen Range cooker, Belfast sink, microwave and fridge. As the premium meadow barn, Alde also has a superb Nespresso coffee machine and coffee capsules.
Outside this holiday cottage in Suffolk you have a large, fully enclosed private garden laid mainly to lawn, with the fabulous ‘indoor outdoor’ room as we’ve said, with your luxury Hot Tub, as well as a patio with BBQ and table and chairs for Al Fresco dining.
The kitchen area of your luxury holiday cottage in Suffolk leads through to an intimate living area with a comfy, squishy sofa, lovely log burning fire and smart TV.
The luxurious main room has a very high vaulted ceilings with huge, exposed oak beams and a winding hand-made timber staircase that leads up to a charming mezzanine bedroom with a gorgeous old solid wood double sleigh bed
There is a well organised shower room on the ground floor with a good sized powerful fixed rose ‘watering can’ style shower, loo and hand basin with luxury hand soap
Because of the enclosed garden and oak floors we are happy to accept pets in all our barn cottages. We normally accept up to 3 dogs. We even leave a dog treat as well as a delicious local breakfast basket for the humans!
We also have a huge fully secure two acre meadow for our four-legged guests to run around and play with each other, along with seating for the two-legged guests to chat as well! There’s a smaller section inside for nervous or older dogs to exercise on their own.

There is ample off road parking.
Alde is one of our five holiday cottage barns in the wooded meadow beside The Granary and Woodfarm House – These luxurious barns vary in price according to size, position, equipment etc so represent great value, as well as having something to suit everyone’s taste and budget!
The Barns nestle into the mature trees around the pond and water feature to create a peaceful little environment to relax in and there is also lovely communal decked area overlooking the pond for when you feel sociable or just want to enjoy the sunset.
The Meadow is down a pretty country lane just outside the little Suffolk village of Stonham Aspal.
There are lovely walks and cycling straight from the Barns and the pretty Suffolk Coast is just 30 minutes away. Bikes are also available FREE of charge!
All our meadow barns are named after nearby Suffolk rivers. The river Alde winds its way through from the sea, inland at nearby Aldeburgh, which is a really popular destination for so many of our holiday cottage guests.

Alde Barn Reviews
Thank you for a great weekend, we had a lovely stay and everything was just what we hoped for.
We enjoyed walks at Dunwich Beach and Southwold. Recommend the River Green Café at Debenham and the Crown at Stowupland. Thank you for our stay and all the extras that you provide. Love the Aladdin Cave – “the Shed” - and of course the hot tub!
What a gem of a place. A charming cottage to celebrate our pearl wedding anniversary. Such a beautiful part of the world to relax and enjoy. Thank you for the friendly welcome.
Another lovely stay at Wood Farm Barns. Lovely weather and great use of hot tub.
Amazing Barn – totally blown away with the charm and facilities offered. Beautiful weather so enjoyed the hot tub and garden. Best fish and chips at Dunwich on the beach!
Feeling very lucky and grateful to have been able to get a few days break. Highly recommend Orford for and walk and gorgeous pastry from the bakery. Helmingham Hall was a chance find – beautiful walled gardens and dog friendly.
Our first stay here and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. We enjoyed visiting Aldeburgy, Southwold and Walberswick. Doddledales is a great shop at Stonham Barns. The pubs were great around here being dog friendly particularly the Stowupland Crown and the Dog at Gruindsburgh. Thank you for a lovely week making it relaxing and everything we needed right here.
Had a very relaxed time in this lovely barn. Some great walks, and would recommend Rendlesham Forest, Pin Mill and Dunwich Heath and beach. So good to have a garden and meadow for the dog. Thank you.
What a find! Alde Barn surpassed our expectations. We had such a lovely relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of busy life. The luxury of sitting out in the wonderful hot tub each evening was magical.
Our first stay and we couldn’t recommend it enough! We had the most relaxing stay with our two dogs. We loved the treats for the pooches and the breakfast basket was lovely. Thank you for a relaxing weekend.
A lovely place and very welcoming. We visited Debenham with its local shops and café. The Highwayman pub had fantastic food and well worth a visit. Thank you for a great time.
What a beautiful place to stay! We were so lucky to win the competition and so grateful. The breakfast basket, such a lovely surprise and everything has been thought of.
We were made to feel very welcome to our Barn. Rendlesham Forest is perfect for long walks, bike rides and picnics and great for our gundog training! Thank you for a relaxing stay with special treats for the dog too!
Lovely relaxing few nights. Alde Barn did not disappoint, everything we needed and more.
Amazing in every way! Everything has been thought out to the smallest of detail! Thank you.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. The dog facilities offering hot and cold water is great. The Shed is an aladdin’s cave, with bikes, books and DVD’s to utilise whilst staying here.
Thank you for such a warm welcome with a delicious breakfast basket and amazing hot tub. We had a lovely weekend.
Another great stay at WFB. A fantastic cottage with everything thought of. Visited Adnams at Southwold and Ickworth House (NT) at Bury St Edmunds. The Zeera Curry Takeaway in Debenham is excellent and offer free delivery to the door! Suffolk local milk and cheese not to be missed either!
A relaxing break in a home from home atmosphere. Lovely beach at Southwold and found a café that sells doggy ice cream! Enjoyed visit to Framlingham Castle and also Aldeburgh.
Our second stay at WFB. As before everything absolutely perfect. Had a lovely relaxing stay with all the comforts of home and more. Thank you.
Our 4th stay at the Barns. We visited Orford, small but beautiful and stocked up on supplies at the meat shed and Pump Street bakery. Enjoyed a walk along Old Felixstowe beach and also enjoyed Framlingham.
A wonderful relaxing few days in Alde Barn. We can recommend trips to Needham Lake, Southwold and Thornham Walks. The addition of the meadow and outside hot tap has made a dog friendly place even better! We return home thoroughly refreshed and look forward to seeing you again soon!
We love the cosy warm vibe that the barn provides – a perfect weekend getaway. The breakfast basket was amazing and the perfect special touch! Thank you.
Thank you for a lovely stay, in this cosy barn with so much attention taken to give your guests over and above what they may have expected! We used our VIP card lots and everyone wanted to chat about the Barns and were pleased the card and recommendations were working well for them.
Alde Barn has been the most wonderful place to stay. We have found Suffolk to be so dog friendly. Our favourite walk is at Orford followed with lunch at the Jolly Sailor and Dunwich with fish and chips at the Ship.
Perfect barn for a short weekend break, with fully enclosed outside space, and the meadow is a brilliant space. We can’t wait to return. Thank you, we’ve had a lovely break.
Beautiful cottage to come for a short break, and a lovely warm welcome. Thank you.
A wonderful stay, everything you need is provided with lots of lovely luxury touches. We recommend the Grundisburgh Dog and enjoyed visiting Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh and Southwold.
A cosy home from home feeling. The dogs loved the meadow and the hot tub was the icing on the cake, so relaxing after a hard day shopping and walking! Suffolk has some pretty villages and towns and quiet roads with beautiful views.
Fabulous time in Alde Barn – Spent three glorious days mainly in the hot tub. The 4 horseshoes carvery a must and Swiss Farm for BBQ items. Thanks for all the nice touches which make moving home for a few days so easy!
Our third stay, but just as amazing as our first stay. The barn has everything you need for a relaxing and fabulous stay
What a fantastic holiday – Wood Farm Barns is the most well thought out, beautiful place. We have discovered and explored so many quaint towns, villages, rivers, seaside and walks. Sunday lunch at the Dog and our puppy thoroughly “woof”ed down his roast!
This is our first holiday for 12 years and it has been lovely! We’ve visited Framlingham Castle, Debenham and the beaches at Dunwich and Southwold. We’ve made use of the lovely extras like the welcome basket, dog treats and VIP card. Thank you.
We brought our bikes and have spent our time cycling round the little villages with our small dog in a basket. A great base for visiting Suffolk. The Crowfield Rose a short ride away, recommend for beer and food and is dog friendly too.
WFB is a fantastic place, so quiet and our dog loved it! It has been very thought out and the owners deserve a pat on the back! We visited out favourite beach, Dunwich Heath which is great for dogs and has a lovely Café. We had a great meal at the Dog in Grundisburgh.
We had a great time, perfect to relax after a day out. We enjoyed a walk round Woodbridge and Martlesham Creek, drive over to Southwold – a wonderful seaside resort and back through Framlingham with a stop off at the Badingham White Horse with a bottle of local wine! Lavenham was a great place to visit incorporating a walk to Brent Eleigh.
A wonderful relaxing time. We especially loved the breakfast hamper and post cards – this was a nice treat on arrival. Lovely food at the 4 Horseshoes and The Dog.
We came for our honeymoon and on arrival “happy tears” over the attention to detail, treats for our dog, postcards already stamped! We made good use of the BBQ and the hot tub. Can’t wait to come back again.
A fabulous few days at Alde Barn. Homely and comfortable with everything you need and more. The barn garden was safe for dogs as was the meadow. Our favourite beach was Southwold. Would highly recommend The Grundisburgh Dog for food. A wonderful break!
A wonderful relaxing time! Despite the poor weather we enjoyed some of the local walks. We visited Hopppit and Hogkiss Woods and Dunwich beach.
LOVE IT! We’ll be back!
Had such a lovely stay, never stayed anywhere so quiet and peaceful. Enjoyed exploring the lovely countryside and enjoyed Snape seeing the WFBarge.
We loved every bit of our stay with all the little home comforts. We ate at the Crown in Stowupland most nights and enjoyed trips to Framlingham and Dunwich Beach.
Thank you so much.
We had a great time and the hot tub was a lovely way to end the day after long walks. The River Green Café at Debenham had great food, highly recommend for a nice lunch. Thank you for a great stay.
Loved the Barn, very well thought out with everything you could need. We felt like VIP’s all weekend. Our dog was so excited and enjoyed the meadow.
So enjoyed relaxing in front of the fire, dipping into the hot tub and exploring the area. Loved the idea of stamped postcards to send to family & friends; loved the dog treats and loved the mugs to take away. Thank you!
We’ve had such a lovely time here. The hot tub was great. The Barn café at Alder Carr was a good choice, and also enjoyed a meal at the Crown at Stowupland
