“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.

It's #ThrowbackThursday, and after our recent escapades along the Suffolk Heritage coast with Onderneming, I came across this pic from 2017.

I was driving my own boat, heading back down the coast, shortly after I'd just bought two big Dutch Barges with which to expand the business. I had no idea then of the journey ahead, or just how popular they'd be.

Here we are, just going past the lighthouse at Orford Ness.

Two sad facts: The lighthouse was demolished in 2020, and I sold my boat that same year 😫. No more whizzing past the lighthouse at 25 knots on a bumpy sea.

I sold the boat to help pay for renovations on Woodfarm Tuscany, so life goes on x

A truly commendable sacrifice and hopefully very worthwhile. X

Good to have images and happy memories though.

Spent the afternoon building a house in my garden, so we can accommodate more guests. I decided to take the rest of the day off and hit the hammock. It’s a hard knock life ... See MoreSee Less

But is it Rose 🌹 standard? You have a reputation to keep up 😉

A desirable residence. Let’s hope it is soon filled with babies.🕊

I know there have to be cut backs but isn't that taking it to the extreme? Where's the hot tub? X🤣🤣

Aww that's a proper des res 🐦

Saw your premises being advertised in the Sunday paper today. Well chuffed. Xx

Hope you're letting its residents stay there for free 😂

They expect a bath as well Carl!

Ooh. I'd like one just like that. Are you selling any, please?(If they're not too expensive.)

Need to work on your stamina level!!!
