Deben Barn Finer Details

You enter Deben Barn into a spacious farmhouse style kitchen/ lounge/ diner with a comfy, squishy sofa and pretty antique pine 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.The fully equipped kitchen in this luxury holiday cottage is well laid out with ample work surface, a kitchen range cooker, belfast sink, microwave and fridge, kettle, four slice toaster etc.

The room has a high vaulted ceiling with impressive oak beams and trusses giving it a spacious atmosphere which is beautifully lit up in the evening by the log burning fire. A nice squishy sofa sits next to the back stable door.

Like all the cottages at Woodfarm Barns there is a TV/DVD/CD player and ipod docking station and bicycles are provided.

The living area leads through to a cosy en-suite bedroom with a quirky antique painted brass double bed and high vaulted and beamed ceiling, the bathroom has a good sized powerful shower with ‘watering can’ style rose, 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.

Hot-Tub Luxury in Suffolk

Outside you have a good sized private garden laid mainly to lawn, with a patio and BBQ with table and chairs for al fresco dining. The great feature of this barn is that you also have a luxurious four person hot-tub! Our ‘Elite Luxury Spa’ features 30 jets, one lounger and three further seats, air controls, illuminated pillows and controls, with colour-changing lights all around you. You have ample privacy screening around you so you can enjoy the ultimate in countryside relaxation

There is ample off road parking.

Deben is one of our five luxury 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 everyones taste and budget!

All our holiday cottage barns are unique in their decor and we have a choice of ground floor and mezzanine or first floor options. They are all traditional Suffolk barns in style with black weatherboarding, oak trusses and beams and oak or slate flooring.

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

Named after the River Deben which winds its way through, aptly from nearby Debenham all the way to the ever-popular Woodbridge and then on to the sea.

The most relaxing place to stay


Deben Barn is beautifully presented and absolutely everything has been thought of to give you the most relaxing place to stay. Louis assured me the doggy treats were equally yummy. Together with the secure garden and fabulous meadow I can safely say there is one happy pooch. Thank you to the WFB Team.

The most dog friendly accommodation that we’ve stayed at.  We enjoyed day trips to Framlingham Castle and Dunwich Heath – highly recommend both.  We hope to come back at some time in the future.

What an amazing place


What an amazing place – fantastic barn and wonderful hot tub with superb facilities for our dog too with treats, and the meadow.  Recommend River Green Café/Deli in Debenham and Artizan in Woodbridge for coffee and cake!


by Helen and Nick with Dennis, Hoppy, Tulla, Red and Fleur the dogs on Woodfarm Barns
With 5 dogs it can be hard to relax, even on holiday, but it’s easy here


There’s nothing that hasn’t been considered in making this a great place for dogs and owners.  With 5 dogs it can be hard to relax, even on holiday, but it’s easy here – secure garden, hot dog wash, tasty dog treats and a dog walk field!  I came here to hide from the world, so didn’t go out much exploring the local area.


by Tamsie and James on Woodfarm Barns
We both love it here, so we will be back!


Another wonderful stay at Wood Farm.  We didn’t venture far, apart from going out for supplies at the Hog and Hen and Palfrey & Hall.  We both love it here, so we will be back!

You can see a lot of time and care has been given to everything

Deben Barn is a lovely cosy, peaceful place to stay. A very well equipped Barn and you can see a lot of time and care has been given to everything in and around the Barns. Would recommend Aldeburgh for a visit – interesting independent shops, café, restaurant, great beach for dogs.
