“I have two favourite places on this little planet of ours. Suffolk and Tuscany. Having built my business in Suffolk, firstly on dry land and then onto the water with our Barges, I’m now expanding it just a little further. To Tuscany!

Woodfarm Tuscany has a delightful little country house with breath-taking views across the Garfagnana, which is the upper valley of the river Serchio, just 20 minutes North-West of Lucca and only 45 minutes from Pisa airport.

A holiday or short-break here is all about the scenery, and food & drink. We have the most amazing location to explore this beautiful area, and enjoy some ‘you time’ from your Tuscan terrace”

Our Dog-friendly Holiday Cottage in Tuscany….

I viewed a lot of houses in the area and then ended up buying the first one I’d seen! The views were love at first sight. The house itself requires a complete renovation, but then I’m used to that, so it’s not a problem.

But the views are simply unforgettable and we don’t have to renovate them!!

Food, Wine and that Tuscan view!

Once it’s finished, this Cottage will be about the incredible views. A cosy place to stay, with the modern comforts you expect from us, in a location giving you easy access to the most popular parts of Tuscany. With or without dogs.

And to go with those views we are building a spacious terrace in the garden, with comfy seating, pizza and bread oven, and a BBQ.

So if you fancy the idea of sitting back and relaxing with the warm Tuscan air wrapped around you as you sip a nice glass of local wine, waiting for your handmade pizza or locally sourced BBQ produce to be ready, then you’d better get your diaries out.

There’ll even be a proper pasta maker in the kitchen, along with local flour and eggs so you can really get into the spirit!

‘Trebbio’ forms part of a tiny hamlet near a tiny village called Piazza Di Brancole, on a hillside overlooking the Garfagnana Valley.

Beautiful 😍

Looks lovely

Looks beautiful!! ❤️xx

As a kid I collected things. I still have (somewhere) a small case full of beer mats, tons of original first day covers from the Channel Islands, and a five litre container full of badges

Here are just a few of my badges, which does make me laugh. Check out my early musical tastes with the Wombles and Bay City Rollers, progressing through to my punk era with Blondie, Sham 60, The Clash, and The Stranglers. There are a few cultural references to the 70's in there that some of you will recognise too!

What did you collect as a kid (or now) and what have you held on to?

Nothing wrong with the Wombles and the Bay City Rollers - great early taste I’d say 😁😆 x

Blast from the past, Matey bubble bath and Buzzby wow, I didn't keep much of anything except memories and a motorcycle I bought 30years ago 🏍️

I have some of those too, but I collected key rings and put them on a chain and hung on my bedroom wall.

Matchboxes which I only have a few left ( I was a bright spark)😜

The wombles and Bay city rollers my growing up memories. I collected frogs. Sold my collection 😢

Bay City Rollers??? Did you also have dodgy tartan half-mast trousers???😱

Loved my womble badges

I don’t remember collecting anything when I was young but I have been collecting souvenir tea towels for many years. I keep telling myself and the family not to give me anymore but when I visit somewhere different I can’t resist purchasing one. I have a few duplicates which have been gifted to me by other people ie from Canada for instance. I have more than 200 and use them all.

We spent ages watching old wombles episodes a while ago after a reference was made to them and our foster child asked what a womble was 🤣

I used to collect old (well they were still legal tender back then!!) halfpenny’s - one for each year they were in circulation from Victorian upwards. Was so frustrated by the 4 years I could never get (think they were war years!) Didn’t think any more of them until I found them again 3 years ago - wonder if they are worth anything now!! Also from about 35 years ago for a while I collected all the rare vinyl records/ picture discs etc of a Scottish band called Runrig. Fairly recently tried to sell them but nobody wants them now 😀😀. Any takers??!!😂😂🤣🤣

I've always loved the wombles...when you think about it they were the first eco warriors in their own quiet way!! And Bernard Cribbens narration was excellent!

I used to collect thimbles! I now collect vintage brooches and badges, I just wish I knew what had happened to my World Cup Willy badge ! ( he was the lion mascot for those too young to remember) 😉😁

Love your badge collection! Curly wurly 😁 - when they were huge eh!? I did still have some badges but not sure if I have. I have a tin of old coppers, mainly pennies, Victorian onwards, but otherwise mainly junk. I've got a meerkat collection,. All still in their boxes. Can't resist free things, then I hoard them. Still got all my old vinyls from about 68 onwards, but no record player for 12 years 🙈 Don't start me on hoarding/collecting 🤣

Love the Stranglers. Great taste!

I collected stamps but sadly I gave them away when I was in my 20s. Wish I had kept them now!

I used to collect them too, definitely had the Wombles ones, Buzby, slush and keep Britain tidy! Lovely memories x

I collected badges too …. Wish I’d kept them !

Loved the bay city rollers

Wonderful collection. I still have a Wombles LP somewhere!

I collect ticket stubbs from things ive been to and still collect now for my sons memory box! I have a ticket stubb from being at the Discoteque royal in manchester when the hit man and her was there , i was 15 🤣 i have one from the only time ive been to Alton towers in 92, i must go nosey in that box now 😅

Stamps, cigarette cards, match books, postcards & tissue oranges were wrapped in in those days. I still have some up in the loft some 50 years latter !!

I used to collect badges, although I suspect my mum got rid of them decades ago, and I also had a Pompeii Lives one! we went on a school trip to the Pompeii exhibition which I think was at the RA ... if not it was the Tutankhamun exhibition that was at the RA and the Pompeii one was at the Natural History Museum? memory’s a bit sketchy; it was around 50 yrs ago after all. think my Tufty Club badge was my favourite and the most beautifully made, with a brass safety pin threaded through a metal plate at the back.

Train spotting, collecting engine numbers back in the days of steam. Still got some of my spotting books.

A few badges too ! Still have my Magpie one plus a stack of Starsky and Hutch posters 💙💙🙄🤣

Such awful news about our local MP 😢 he was very well thought of in his constituency

A terrible day indeed. So very sad. Thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues and particularly with those there at the time. A true gentleman 😔

Very appropriate. He was a great supporter of animal welfare issues if I remember correctly. An awful tragedy 😢

Good man down.

Great recycling of lost property in a local pub

I remember forgetting mine years ago at my friends pub. He went off and came back with about 20 pairs to choose from! 🤣

I must point out that it was lunchtime and I had fizzy water as I don't drink much

Always had bruise on my wrist.

Used to love them and definitely ouch lol

OMG i forgot them, had lots of bruises from them.

Mine were so heavy, its a wonder they didn't fly off lol wouldn't be allowed today with health and safety rules.

Loved these. K-knockers if I remember correctly. Handy weapon too when you have older brothers 😂

Still have the bruises to prove it 😂

Yessss! They were lethal but great fun! 😁

Loved the sound of them, didn't like the bruises when I got it wrong xx 😳😂❤

Oh the pain when you got the rhythm wrong! 😳🤣

Clackers!

Clackers

I think I must be TOO old as I don't remember these at all. When were they popular?

One word sums up my experience with these. “Ouch”

Black and blue knuckles 🥱

Still got mine, I have a go every now and again 🤣🤣🤣

I loved my clackers but one false move and boy did it hurt. When the swelling went down I was right back at it 😂😂

They weren't toys. They were ruddy weapons 🤣🤣

Ha, ha! Totally forgotten that joy! 🤣

Painful memories 😂

Ooh my bruised wrists 🤣

Loved these great fun 🤣

I had red ones, loved them!😃

Loved mine 😂

Well I remember confiscating them from kids when I was teaching in London…..😂😂🤣🤣!! Bet I was called a miserable old bag (or words to that effect….!!!)
