“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.

Is there no end to your talents Carl 😂😂🤣🤣!

You could brew your own chocca mocha beer!!!🤪🤪🤪

About time you started growing vines and treading the grapes so we can have some nice Suffolk wine on our next visit! PS wash your feet first!

Such a hard life, your medal is on its way xx

Carl what's a medal when you already have everything? You have barns, barges, Suffolk countryside, and woodentops, seriously what else do you need?...........I know coffee 😕😏😕 x

I would happily be 'chief' coffee grinder/tester, love both the smell & taste. ☕ x

Ooh such a hard life you have Carl!

You can't beat the smell of freshly ground coffee ☕

Word of advice for stoopid people. Which is definitely not me. This didn't happen to me. I'm just telling you it could happen to you if you're stoopid. But I'm not...

When you go to the Hog & Hen farmshop to get all the breakfast basket goodies for your guests, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT put the eggs on top of everything else in the boot, and assume you can drive back to Woodfarm HQ carefully. What you should do is open the back door and put them safely on the back seat.

The last thing I said to Amy as I left the shop was "What could possibly go wrong"?

I'll tell you what could possibly go wrong if you're stoopid. What could possibly go wrong is that you would have to stop suddenly 😳

So there you go, sound advice peeps. Luckily I'm not that stoopid 🤦

Bring on the puns, I'm eggspecting nothing less of you

You always crack us up with your jokes Carl

Looks like the yolks on you. I’m cracking up over it

So... You had to shell out for more eggs!? 🥚🤣

You had a smashing time then? It’s no yolk is it! One for the album/en! 😜😂.

Eggscellent advice xx

I hope they weren’t eggspensive

Cracking!

Knowing you you’re probably eggaggerating 😜

I bet you were fried after dealing with that mess. Scrambles the brain! You should poach someone's cleaner to help

Shell you chalk this one up to experience

Do you need a coddle?

It's not eggxagerating or a yoke to clean that scramble

Egg. Face. 🥚 🙃

How eggsasperating!

Eggsasperating!

Eggshausting having to clear that lot up x

Well that was an egg-plosive experience! 🥚🐣

Have they not invented egg boxes in Suffolk??!! 😆

That’s no yoke is it !

Eggcellent advice, putting them on the backseat. My head would be scrambled having to clean that up!

Over egging the advice a little bit aren't you? 😁

Call in all the Kings horses and all the Kings men to help you. Spoiler: may not work though...

Clucking annoying at best....

What a shame after you had shelled out for them, hope the car is allwhite though! Don't envy you having to clean it up 😲

Cracking!

Many years ago I had a job.

If I was lucky, once a year my boss would tell me I was doing well.

Much prefer what I do now, and have my guests tell me all the time. That's far more rewarding.

Thank you Jan x

I work for myself as well and having clients/customers saying thank you it was good/great is lovely, makes everything and all the hard work worth it, so WTG you Carl you obviously deserve it. I will travel the 20 minutes to get to see your barns, one day, but I will warn you first lol 😜 x

Carl is the most accommodating person I have ever met. Maitre’D, concierge, boulevardier and cycling Titan. And a fine human being.

Good morning C. Scott!! Deffo well deserved review in my humble opinion!! Have a great Bank Holiday weekend. xx

Well done Carl, with reports like that, makes all the hard work, worth it. 😉💕💕

Can i go please??
