“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.

I took a photo of some random, self-seeded thistles at sunrise by our koi pond.

I've rather imaginatively called this composition 'Random, self-seeded thistles at sunrise by a koi pond'

Only they aren’t thistles!!!

Teasels! You can dry them. Some people spray them gold fir Christmas decorations.

Whatever they're called, they are beautiful.

So maybe "these'lls are teasels"?

Teasels by the Koi, at dawn, maybe ? 🤔

I have no idea where you get the inspiration for the titles of your pictures but they always tell us so much about the subject, though in this case it might be somewhat misleading 🤣🤣

Except that’s not a thistle…..🤔. It’s a teasel so methinks you might have to change the title of your composition 🤣🤣🤣

They are Teasles not thistles - bird love them

They were used in the woollen industry in the past for carding the wool i/e pulling out the threads.

Dunno about you, but I like to eat plums when they're fresh. So here I am getting them as fresh as possible from the tree in Stour Barn! 🤷🤣🤪

Book a break in Stour Barn and get free plums. If I leave any!

Not a trace, of doubt in my mind. I'm a believer. Xx

I'm glad I wasn't a believer of the rabbit's football predictions! Well done the Lionesses! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Ok, it's the big match tonight! England's Lionesses vs Germany....

Ya know there's lots of videos where people get their pets to predict the outcomes of sporting events? Well my daughter Lauren sent me this one she did of her rabbits Pigly & Pattachen deciding the winner of tonight's huge game!

Will the Woodfarm Wabbits be right or not?!?!?!

It's a 'must watch'.....

Not into football but good luck to the Lionesses

The Rabbits are wrong...England all the way! ⚽️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿⚽️
