Dog Owners

Because of the enclosed garden and slate floor, we are happy to accept pets in all our barn holiday 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 huge, fully enclosed private garden laid mainly to lawn, with a patio and BBQ with table and chairs for Al Fresco dining.

There is ample off road parking in front of the Granary.

All our luxuriously appointed 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 Granary is very definitely our premier barn because of its history and charm; if you’re looking for a truly luxurious holiday cottage in Suffolk then you’ve found it.

The other barns nestle into the mature trees  adjacent to the Granary, 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 Granary Barn 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!

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.

Fantastic, quiet, rural and relaxing

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.

Very dog friendly

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!
