Stour Barn finer details

Outside your holiday cottage in Suffolk you have a small, fully enclosed private garden laid partly to lawn, with a fabulous ‘indoor outdoor’ room with huge luxury Hot Tub as well as a patio with BBQ and table and chairs for Al Fresco dining.

The fully equipped kitchen is well laid out with ample work surface, a fitted  cooker with ceramic hob, belfast sink, microwave and fridge, kettle and four slice toaster

The main living area is spacious with a squishy, luxurious comfy sofa, lovely log burning fire and smart TV.

It has high vaulted ceilings throughout, with huge, exposed oak beams and just oozes rustic charm. The living area leads through to a ground floor bedroom with a black iron ‘bedknobs and broomsticks’ style double bed (please note it doesn’t fly)

There is a well organised en-suite shower room 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 luxury holiday 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.

Outside you have a fully enclosed private garden with a patio and BBQ with table and chairs for Al Fresco dining

There is ample off road parking.

Stour is a luxury holiday cottage in Suffolk; 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 everyones 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!

Each holiday cottage in Suffolk is unique in its 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.

All our meadow barns are named after nearby Suffolk rivers. The river Stour meanders through from far inland at Sudbury, through stunning ‘Constable Country’, past Dedham, East Bergholt and Manningtree and out to the sea.

Amazing!


Amazing! Will most certainly come again and recommend. Thank you so very much!


 by Tanya and David with Bailey, Baloo and Betsy the dogs
Lovely to return to the hot tub after a day walking.


We’ve stayed on Twee Gebroeders twice and this is the first time at the Barns. We had some nice walks along the beach at Southwold and Aldeburgh. Lovely to return to the hot tub after a day walking.


 by Carey and Dave with Phoebe the dog
We enjoyed the evenings in the hot tub


We had a fabulous 4 days exploring the nearby coastline and surrounding countryside. We enjoyed the evenings in the hot tub with our final evening having an excellent meal in the Crown at Stowupland.

The hot tub was the icing on the cake!


Fabulous few days, where we have really chilled out and had some good laughs. The hot tub was the icing on the cake! The Crowfield Rose Pub provided a good homely tasty meal and for a good farm shop we recommend Alder Carr or Hog & Hen.


 by Louise and Brian with Pippa the dog
Great attention to detail for both human and canine comfort


Great attention to detail for both human and canine comfort. So much to see and do around beautiful Suffolk. Particularly loved Southwold beach with most places we visited being very dog friendly and welcoming. A great place to stay for a relaxing break.


 by Charlotte and Tony with Lexi the dog
Thank you, we will return in the future.


What a great place, peace and quiet and the meadow great for our dog. Thank you, we will return in the future.

Such a wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable five days


Such a wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable five days. We couldn’t ask for a more special place to celebrate our wedding anniversary whilst staying at WFB. Would recommend Iken Cliffs – the best views ever!


 by Colin and Sharon
We return for the location


We have been coming here before all the Barns were completed – it would seem from photos we first came in August 2012. We return for the location, accommodation, facilities and most of all The Wood Farm Team are hard to beat! Our recommendations would be the coast, anywhere from Woodbridge, Orford, Aldeburgh or Thorpeness.


 by Michelle and Shaun with Barney the dog
Our first visit and a great welcome from Carl


Our first visit and a great welcome from Carl and a lovely breakfast basket in the Barn. Recommend a trip to Debenham, lots of individual shops and then to the Four Horseshoes, Thornham for a meal – dog friendly pub.


 by Peter and Denise with Kali the dog
This is a lovely place with excellent facilities


This is a lovely place with excellent facilities and beautiful location. Our dog loved the field and ran like crazy. We used the time to chill and didn’t go out much, but did have an excellent meal at the Crown at Stowupland.

A pretty barn with peaceful surroundings


A pretty barn with peaceful surroundings and with a fantastic dog meadow. We do recommend dog friendly places at Helmingham Gardens, Sutton Hoo, Dunwich Beach

The disco lit hot tub is amazing


The disco lit hot tub is amazing and love that it is undercover – so pretty at night. Would recommend the Sun Inn at Dedham and a walk to Flatford. Dunwich is a fab beach for dogs. Thank you to Carl and the Team.

We’ve loved it here


We’ve loved it here and couldn’t have asked for more. A perfect place after lockdown to get some peace and rest, listening to the birds, sitting in the hot tub. A great cycle over to Hemingstone through quiet country roads and open fields. Enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Four Horseshoes, visited Woodbridge and Southwold.


 by Julie and Andy with Luther the dog

This is a great bolt hole in the Suffolk Countryside


This is a great bolt hole in the Suffolk Countryside.  We’ve ventured to the dog friendly beaches at Southwold, to Thornham Walks and Needham Lake.  As there are lots more places to explore we’ll just have to return again!

We are Woodentops and proud of it! This place is our home from home, our country retreat – away from it all and totally peaceful. It’s a magical time to remember dream of and look forward to – it’s the best place in the world! Carl and his team do a fab job and the icing on the cake is the welcome. Thank you Carl for helping us all during what has been tough times for all.

A wonderful time had by us all


A fantastic break, with antique hunting at Woodbridge and Snape Maltings.  Our dog thoroughly got spoilt at Doodledales and we loved wandering around Stonham Barns.  The hot tub was a perfect way to relax at the end of our days out.  A wonderful time had by us all.

We’ve had a lovely romantic break to celebrate our anniversary.  Love the Barn, hot tub and the doggy shower is brilliant.  Walked at Thornham and Rendlesham Forest, following the UFO trail.  Finished off the mini break with a trip to Aldeburgh and Southwold for a doggy run on the beach.

A relaxing weekend with the dogs


A relaxing weekend with the dogs.  Great day at Thornham Walks.  Storm Ciara tried to put a dampener on the last day, but to no avail – we got some quiet reading time and lovely steak dinner! 


 by James and Vicki
Another fantastic stay at Wood Farm Barns


Another fantastic stay at Wood Farm Barns.  We recommend the Highwayman and a takeaway from Zeera Indian.  Great days out we would recommend Thorpness and Aldeburgh, where we watched the seals pop out of the water.

We have had several breaks at WFB and it never fails to please us with the personal welcome, breakfast basket and jar of dog treats – not forgetting the amazing hot tub!  Love, love, love Wood Farm Barns!!

Lovely relaxed break in wonderful “toasty” accommodation


Lovely relaxed break in wonderful “toasty” accommodation.  The dogs appreciated the treats, a warm dog wash and 2 acre paddock to run around!  So many places to visit, with many dog friendly eating places.  Great meal at Westerfield Swan and The Stowupland Crown.


 by Pam and Phil with Bracken and Skye the dogs
Thank goodness for the hot/cold doggy shower which is a brilliant addition


Lovely stay as always – dogs love the meadow and this time the muddier the better – thank goodness for the hot/cold doggy shower which is a brilliant addition.  Dogs loved Doodledales at Stonham Barns, also visited the Owl Sanctury and Crowfield Church.


 by Marline and Gary
Perfect location and facilities


Lovely time!  Perfect location and facilities.  Here with family to celebrate 60th birthdays!  Crazy golf at Stonham Barns was fun and we took the dog on several walks around the local area.

A really lovely mini break with Christmas decorations and home comforts all included.  Even a most amazing treat jar for the dogs too!

Mucky pup shower station is a genius idea!


Lovely friendly welcome with a fab selection of goodies in the welcome basket, together with evenings in the hot tub!  We enjoyed taking our dog over the “to dog paddock” and the mucky pup shower station is a genius idea!


 by Sue and Ben with Bella the dog
We love the mucky pup cleaning station …. Brilliant!

The shorter days means more time in the wonderful hot tub with lights, candles and wine! We love the mucky pup cleaning station …. Brilliant!

'Thank you for making me feel so welcome' - Hamish the dog

I had a busy time taking my two legged parents to Walberswick, Southwold, Woodbridge and Aldeburgh. The hot tub was relaxing for them after our long walks, so I could re-charge my batteries for more adventures on the beaches and hide and seek in the meadow with my new friends. Thank you for making me feel so welcome.

 by Lisa and Gavin with Ellie the dog
Look forward to coming back in the near future

Despite the damp weather we still enjoyed the hot tub. Our dog enjoyed the meadow area and meeting other dogs. Look forward to coming back in the near future.

 by Charlie and Joe with Tommy and Aura the dogs
It's a rare treat to find somewhere so beautiful where dogs are so welcome

Found Wood Farm Barns to be exactly what it promised and more. Beautiful barn, relaxing hot tub and so many thoughtful touches like the treats for the dogs and all the generosity of the bike shed. It is a rare treat to find somewhere so beautiful where dogs are so welcome. Many thanks.

 by Christina and David with Mabel the dog
Our first time and I’m sure we will be back

 by Gary and Melaine
Enjoyed our stay immensely, would recommend and come again

Judging by the previous comments we are in the minority, not having dogs! That didn’t stop us enjoying our stay immensely and would recommend and come again.

 by Maria and Brian with Henry and Sam the dogs
Our fifth visit and doesn’t disappoint

This is our fifth visit and doesn’t disappoint. Our favourite places to visit include Framlingham, The Four Horseshoes at Eye is excellent and Sizewell Beach is wonderfully peaceful and Dunwich Beach too. Thank you to all the staff.

 by Ruth and Denise with Kookie and Saffi the dog
Very cosy and everything catered for

Loved our little barn – very cosy and everything catered for. The extra touches made all the difference……postcards and stamps!; doggie treats; yummy breakfast basket; excellent dvd selection and the meadow is a real bonus. Southwold is a beautiful and very relaxed seaside town with delicious fish and chips on the pier in the sun!

 by Gail and Allen with Macey the dog
