“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.

As the numbers affected and infected by a global pandemic rise, I cannot open my doors. Yup, got that and I agree. Let's stop travelling.

But international travel is still still allowed and has been all along. However, our goverment are finally going to inist that anyone coming from overseas must have a negative test coming into the UK. If you don’t then you’ll have a £500 fine. Ok, so you are allowed to pass it on to others, and those people pass it on and those people pass it on and.... but we’ll have £500 to share amongst the relatives of the 500 people you killed. Got it.

This ground-breaking rule was supposed to come in tomorrow but I just heard that it's now been put off until Monday to "give people time to prepare to not travel". That makes sense, there’s no urgency to stop this thing is there?!?!?!?

I'm not sure that it takes very long to prepare not to travel, so being as helpful as ever, I have just shot a handy video guide on how not to travel. It's worth watching as it contains all the advice you need on how not to travel.

I have called this handy guide "How not to travel", so do share it with others in order that they may learn how not to travel too.

I think common sense went out the window months ago 😢x

It’s like knocking your head against the wall with some people

It's crazy isn't it? - we are all staying in our houses and not meeting our families while others are swanning about the world with apparently no restriction. I have never understood why our borders have remained open throughout.

Ridiculous & dangerous decisions as usual 🤦‍♀️

Oh I love Southwold❤❤

Wish I could have a walk along that beautiful beach right now. ❤Southwold❤

Oh god, this makes me really 'home away from home' sick 😞

Love Southwold....our first visit in May 2019.. especially the Brewery shop and pier

I find Southwold a tad expensive and they don't allow dogs on thee beach, give me Dunwich and Sizewell, any time, or Felixstowe can be quite nice as well, sometimes 😀

Miss being able to take my Dad there !😞

Thank you for always being so positive and giving us a psychological ‘heads up’, which is much needed. Think this new LD is quite disheartening, albeit expected; the ‘PM’s’ bike-ride arrangements of recent days are very troubling, as they either indicate a wish to anger, or a incredible display of complete ignorance. Am on the fence, but feel unsettled, so your great pics were soothing! Hope you’re on the mend, must chat one day. 🙏💪🌟

Love southwold, was supposed to be there in a few weeks time now canceled, love out of peak season for coppers run on the sand

Think my chances might be fading of staying in one of your barns and exploring in March all these lovely places you’re tempting me with...😢

Plan to go to the brewery when things get back to normal. Grandkids love the sandy beach!

Southwold was on the TV programme Greatest Motorcycle rides, with Henry Cole. I've never been, but looks lovely

WHAT'S IN THE BOX?

Guess and you could WIN a prize that money just can't buy!!!

EDIT....... 155 guesses but not one had the exact answer. A couple of you came very close with a water feature but the answer is..... a fountain, which is for Woodfarm House. I will send a mug to Nikki Brister who said water feature first though. Well done Nikki and thank you to all of you for joining in the fun 😊

‘LOCKDOWN LOOKBACK’

“What’s he on about now?” I hear you ask

Well, I’ve decided that a couple of times a week during Lockdown 3.0, I’m going to just share some of my favourite views and bits of Suffolk, and maybe Tuscany

It’s a ‘Lookback’ as although I am an incredibly optimistic and forward facing individual, I’m not very good at taking photos of the future yet

I just want to use it to focus on the good stuff, not all the cruddy rubbish that’s surrounding us, so let’s embrace this together gang! Who’s in?

I guess it’s like Throwback Thursday, but this is more specifically about a handful of my fave places, that you may wish to enjoy whilst you’re here sometime later this year.

I know we'll be flat out again when the vaccine rollout starts kicking in, and we have some exciting things coming up to share with you, but for now I’m going to look forward by looking back.

Still with me? Ok, who loves these pics of Walberswick? (Technically one is of Southwold harbour, but my feet were in Walberswick)
