Dogs love Woodfarm

When are you going to let your dog fall in love with Woodfarm?

If you and your dog cherish holidays together, Woodfarm is the place where happy dogs hang out.

Dogs stay free at Woodfarm Barns & Barges
An award won by Woodfarm Barns.

Up to three dogs are very welcome, FREE of charge, in all eight of our Suffolk Barn, as well as our two Dutch barges, and over in Casa Trebbio in Tuscany. We’re delighted to say that we don’t just tolerate dogs – we welcome them! They’ll enjoy fully enclosed gardens, and a fully enclosed two acre Pooch Paddock at our Barns, as well as Dog bowls, towels and treats at all our Barns & Barges

We’ve even been awarded the Pets Welcome accreditation by the VisitEngland governing body ‘Quality in Tourism’, which backs up our approach to dog-friendly holidays. Read all about happy dogs.

Dog friendly, fully enclosed, gardens

But what is a dog friendly garden?
To ensure your canine friend, and other guests and dogs at Woodfarm, are safe and happy, all of our luxury dog friendly holiday cottages have fully enclosed gardens. This feature is part of what earns us our Pets Welcome accreditation and allows dogs to roam around their own private space, which is essential for owners who feel their dog may be nervous around others.

We always get asked if our gardens are enclosed. We’ve met guests who have experienced ‘dog friendly’ holiday cottages without enclosed gardens, so we’re proud to be able to offer this feature as part of our comprehensive dog friendly experience.

Discover all the features of our cottages.

We love when our guests send us photos of their dogs having a K9 holiday in our cottages – and the gallery grows all the time! We’ve been host to a wide variety of makes and models, from lovable mongrels to pure pedigrees. All are welcome at Woodfarm, with an ear-scratch and a treat waiting on arrival.

Visit our photo gallery to see photos of our four-legged guests.
