Gipping Barn finer details
The fully equipped kitchen is well laid out with ample work surface, a welsh dresser, a kitchen range cooker , Belfast sink, microwave and fridge, kettle and four-slice toaster. The kitchen area leads through to an open living area with a comfy, squishy sofa set back into the bay window, lovely log burning fire and smart TV.
This main room has a very high vaulted ceiling with huge, exposed oak beams and a winding hand-made timber staircase that leads up to a charming mezzanine bedroom with a double wooden sleigh bed
There is a well-organised luxury shower room on the ground floor of your holiday cottage, 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 three 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!
Outside you have a fully enclosed private garden, with a fabulous ‘indoor outdoor’ room with luxury Hot Tub, opening up onto a patio with BBQ and table and chairs for Al Fresco dining.
There is ample off-road parking.
Gipping is the left-hand side of the large barn holiday cottage with Orwell and is one of our five-holiday cottage barns in the wooded meadow beside The Granary, Woodfarm House and Meadowview Cottage – 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! If you are looking for a holiday cottage in Suffolk with a hot tub then look no further.
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 a lovely communal decked area overlooking the pond for when you feel sociable or just want to enjoy the sunset.
All our barns are unique in their luxury 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 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 Gipping winds its way through nearby Needham Market and Stowmarket and there’s a beautiful walk, which we have details of.

Gipping Barn Floorplan
More reasons to stay at Gipping Barn
Gipping Barn, which shares its name with a nearby Suffolk village and a river in Suffolk, is a beautiful Barn that includes a mezzanine double bedroom as well as a country-style kitchen, log burning fire, oak décor, and a timber staircase that winds its way to the bedroom. Very much on brand, Gipping Barn also has a fully enclosed garden that extends out from the interior, complete with its own luxurious hot tub. Illuminated by the lights which adorn the ‘indoor-outdoor’ room that the hot tub is located in, you really won’t struggle to relax when holidaying here.
Hot Tub Fun Fact – The Jacuzzi Brothers originally invented pumps for aviation and agriculture, but when a family member developed a form of arthritis, they used their knowledge on hydraulics to create a hydrotherapy pump that was portable which would allow any home bathtub to be used for hydrotherapy. This helped pave the way for modern hot tubs.

A getaway that’s perfect. We love it here and definitely will be returning. Enjoyed the evenings with Prosecco in the hot tub! Going home feeling totally relaxed.
We have fallen in love with Suffolk. Recommend the Highwayman, Butt and Oyster and Crettingham Bell. For something extra special, The Brewers at Rattlesden. The Boardwalk on the Pier at Felixstowe had great fish and chips and Framlingham Castle worth a visit. Enjoyed the Waterfront at Ipswich for an outdoor drink. The Cafe in the business park next door, ideal for a relaxed breakfast.

A beautiful place with an amazing hot tub! Thanks for a lovely time, we will definitely be back!
Our first visit and we loved it, so relaxing. The hot tub was great and spent quite a few hours just chilling! Thank you for the breakfast basket and little gifts, those little touches which makes the difference.
We and the dogs have had the best time. A warm welcome and so many wonderful personal touches for both humans and hounds. Just starting to unwind and we have to go home! Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The barn is quirky and cosy and in a lovely setting, with the meadow for the dogs fantastic. Look forward to coming back when the weather is better as it was very muddy! We have loved the doggy wash area and most grateful for all the doggy extras.
A fantastic hideaway – home from home. The dog loved the treats and a great idea to have a doggie shower in the garden. We had dinner at the Grundisburgh Dog, very dog friendly. We spent several hours in the hot tub – so peaceful and we look forward to coming back.
The location has been a perfect retreat after a crazy year organising our wedding and the perfect beginning to our new married life together. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub on cold winters evenings with a glass of bubbles. An excellent touch to have robes and slippers! We recommend the Crown at Stowupland where we had a fantastic meal.
Just like last time, WFB provides the most idyllic getaway. It feels like a home from home. We have lived in the hot tub, getting out to cook delicious meals, and nip to the coast! Thank you for a perfect weekend.
Thank you to the team for such a lovely hideaway in a beautiful location. The barn was very homely and with the added bonus of a gorgeous hot tub, our stay here has been wonderful, short but well-lived. A wonderful way to celebrate a special birthday.
Absolutely beautiful place, pristinely clean and some lovely little touches. Thanks.
Such a lovely relaxing holiday, we were made to feel very welcome. We enjoyed our trip to Framlingham Castle and recommend the Mere walk. The Crown at Stowupland great for Pizza and for a night in, Zeera Indian offered great service, delivery and amazing food.
We had a great break, enjoying the hot tub and loved the meadow, visiting Framlingham Castle, and the lovely timber framed Church just up the road.
Thank you for a warm welcome. We had a very relaxing time, in a beautiful barn.
A relaxing weekend, the barn is beautiful and it’s so relaxing. Thank you so much!
I was treated by my husband to a wonderful couple of nights away for my 40th birthday – couldn’t have picked a better place! The barn was very cosy with underfloor heating and rustic features. The hot tub was amazing, very relaxing and romantic with the lights at night.
Our third time at WFB and it still doesn’t disappoint. Celebrating a birthday and 25th Wedding Anniversary, so had a relaxing time. Snape Maltings and Aldeburgh are favourite places and also visited Leiston Abbey. Thank you to the WFB Team.
Fabulous! What a fantastic treat to celebrate my 50th! A wonderful time, relaxing in the hot tub in between exploring the area. We took a bike ride to the Sorrell Horse, visited Framlingham Castle and had lunch at the Low House, Laxfield, and a bracing walk along the beach at Aldeburgh.
Great first stay at Wood Farm Barns. We loved Gipping Barn, and the hot tub was great. We visited Bury St Edmunds, Felixstowe, Woodbridge, Aldeburgh and Southwold for the Adnams brewery tour! Looking forward to our return.
Simply perfect and Carl was a wonderful host. The hamper and dog treats were fantastic and the hot tub provided a relaxing end to the day. We hope to return soon.
Another great stay. So quiet and peaceful and with lots to see and do on the doorstep – it’s a great location.
We have loved our holiday at WFB. The breakfast basket was amazing. Thank you for such a warm welcome.
