The Granary Barn Reviews
We have had a great week here. Some lovely villages and seaside towns to visit. The barn was an enjoyable experience, very quiet and restful. We would have no hesitation staying here again.
Having been here before we knew what to expect. Lovely Barn with high standards and a good sized garden.
The Granary is a lovely bolthole with an enclosed garden. We spent the week finding beaches – loved Aldeburgh, and Dunwich; farm shops and butchers. We loved the Cretingham Bell pub.
We enjoyed our stay here. Benji loved the dog meadow and it was great that the garden was enclosed. We enjoyed exploring Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and Orford.
The comforting feeling that envelopes you when you first enter the Granary is amazing. We enjoyed the birdsong and watching the wildlife in the garden. Southwold and Felixstowe are beautiful places to visit.
A lovely peaceful two night break. Tranquil Barn with an excellent blend of original and new features.

The Granary is amazing and so unusual and it’s great to be staying away again after lockdown. Lots to see and do in the area, so we will be back.

A hidden gem – we enjoyed our stay very much with the added extra of breakfast basket and dog friendly welcome.
A perfect place to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary – the barn was perfect. We recommend Helmingham Hall, a lovely place for a picnic and Bawdsey Quay.
So lovely here, we feel this is our second home. Thank you once again to Carl and the Team.
We’ve had such a relaxing weekend. The breakfast basket was delicious and the barn had everything we needed.
Our first time in the Granary Barn and hope it won’t be the last! Loved having such a big garden and bedroom is stunning. Such a peaceful relaxed time – just what we needed.
Our first visit - just beautiful Barn in an amazing area. This stay has been a much needed escape and exceeded every expectation. Thank you for everything.

Thank you once again for a fantastic time.
Thank you once again for a fantastic stay. We have had a marvellous time chilling out at the barn and visiting our favourite places.
We were competition winners and what a great prize this was. The Granary is home from home with beautiful features and little touches, and cosy too. The dogs are shattered. Carl is a fab and friendly host.
Excellent stay as always. Thank you.
Lovely barn with lots of personal touches. We enjoyed our stay and will recommend
A lovely relaxing break. Had some interesting walks, encountering deer and hares on the local foothpaths. The Meadow is very handy and the dogs loved sniffing around there!
Great meals at The Dog and The Crown at Framlingham. Fantastic weather, so many walks in the sunshine with our dog. Lovely visits to Wivenhoe, Dunwich and Southwold. Shame we were only here for two nights but we will be back!
The Granary Barn is lovely and Carl and his team have thought of every luxury you need. 5 star accommodation. Best two pubs recommended are the Stowupland Crown and Grundisburgh Dog.
Wood Farm Barns not only matched up to our expectations, but far exceeded them! Fantastic, quiet, rural and relaxing. We woke up listening to the birds singing, and the dogs loved playing in the meadow. Many thanks for a perfect holiday.
What a truly delightful place. We have fallen in love with the charm and warmth of the Granary and do not want to leave! Carl, you have created from nothing the haven that folk crave. A place they can feel at home in immediately and forget about the real world we all live in…..thank you!
Fantastic stay with good weather too in this cosy, peaceful Barn! Woof meadow was great for training our dog. Thank you to Carl and the Team.
Another fantastic week in Granary Barn. We love it here and will be back to visit all the hidden treasures Suffolk has to offer.
A fantastic barn with everything you could need. We look forward to coming back.
Back for our 4th visit and very nice it was too! Visited many of our old haunts including Southwold, discovered a really rather good café in Abbeygate Street, Bury St Edmunds and Honey and Harvey in Woodbridge. Dined once again at the Crown at Stowupland and The White Horse at Badingham – very dog friendly, with the food good too!
Fantastic 5* Barn. Had a relaxing stay with everything that was needed. Will be back.
We were really pleased with the facilities, everything catered for to such a high standard. The Dog at Grundisburgh was the most friendliest pub.
So pleased to have discovered Wood Farm Barns. We were delighted with everything here, from breakfast basket to the dog treats. We loved it, such a relaxing place.
Great place for a long weekend. We’ll be back!
A wonderful stay at the Granary for our sister’s 50 th . We hired the whole place as a family so it has been like a luxurious second home. Sad to be leaving, such a wonderful place. Many happy memories made to treasure forever.
A beautiful old building, so lovingly restored and such a nice place to stay. From the warm and friendly welcome, all the wonderful little touches added and the fabulous location, a real pleasure.
