“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.

So very true. My son and I do it. X

I am afraid it will not catch on in the Abbott household, I tend to like my food at least Lukewarm

Don't very often take photos of my meals as I'd rather eat them but couldn't resist taking a snap of your travel mugs who have traveled to Crete with us 😎

Prefer eating my meals to taking snapshots of them 🤣

Only take a picture if I've cooked it and it actually looksks decent 😂 I used to wait tables at one time and I think the best thing I've seen is a large family who asked for a spare bread basket into which they all put their phones. The first to check their phone had to pay the bill 😜

Really!!!!!😀

I like to film during the prep but only when I can make it like an M and S advert 👌

Not me!

Wanna superyacht? No problem! Fancy schmancy sports car? Sorted! Million quid in your bank account? Consider it there!

Look, I don't wanna bring it up, but it's just 3 months now until this guy rocks up.

You can have as many presents as you want!

Just imagine spending your festive break with this fella making all your dreams come true!

TERMS & CONDITIONS.... We may have made one or two bits of that up

What bits? Can't work it out... Seems legit to me

You mean I could find you in a Santa suit in my hot tub on Christmas morning 😱😱😱😱😱

As long as its a hunky santa and not a dirty old man I'm happy 🤣🤣🤣

Santa in the tub is ok but I wouldn’t want any shepherds washing their socks by night😁🎅

Sorry, Petes a Bah humbug when it comes to Christmas. Nice thought though. X

I'm not normally one to watch Masterchef, but I watched it last night and I have to say, I was truly inspired. As you can see! ... See MoreSee Less

Very artistic 😂 Enjoy! Xx

Very good, shame I don't like baked beans 🤣

You’ve missed your calling! I await the opening of the Woodfarm Fine Dining Restaurant 😆

Du pain, Du vin, le baked beans magnifique😁

Deconstructed. Like your style.

Very pretty but would need at least 2 of those to make me feel like I'd had breakfast!

I loved the ONE prawn standing upright on a plate ha ha 😄

Sorry Carl your beans are a little untidy x

Young man, you do make me laugh sometimes. This is one of those times!

Great effort, keep trying 😊🤣

Yum yum x

Ah, legume bruschetta with a tomato reduction. Fancy!!

Wow, woodfarm restaurant, you can have my husbands recipe for boiled eggs. His signature dish!

I’m sorry I feel it lacks something. Maybe three grains of salt in the corner would complete it. 🤯

Creased!!!

Where is the Palfrey and Hall bacon and sausages???

Tut tut. You left the crust on! X

Novel cuisine 😂 someone will pay a fortune

Brilliant!

Perfection!

Looks like a Mayan ruin complete with sacrificial garden

Congratulations to Morrisons!

Popped in to Morrisons in Ipswich to refuel my jalopy the other day, and was bowled over with their stunning garden centre!

I don't recall a time when I've ever seen such a wondrous display of horticultural splendour. Just the sheer spectacle of the colours is dazzling. The merchandising team at Morrisons have certainly earned their salaries with this one. I know one or two experts in merchandising, and they were taken aback at the simplicity of this display, yet somehow managing to pull off such a mesmerising result.

Well done Morrisons, we could all learn from you. I don't know who has the better team? Your merch guys, or the PR people at Centerparcs. You are all making Britain Grate. Darn that autocorrect.

Maybe it was that good a display ghat it immediately sold out?

Brilliant!

Bargain plants all sold out

This one’s a bit harsh… my local Morrisons is the same, but there were some real bargains as they sold off the seasonal plants. In a couple of weeks they fill it up with seasonal Halloween pumpkins and then a few weeks after that seasonal Christmas trees… it’s uninsulated and miserable for the lovely woman who mans the till… give her a couple of weeks of warmth in the store! 😊

Minimalism at its best???🤪🤪🤪

Love Morrisons plant section, really good prices!

Assume you bought that remaining trollious japonicus as a feature?

🤣🤣.... x

The one in Diss is as good.

Looks like they're trying to grow shopping trolleys. I wish them every success 😂

Very minimalistic

All the wheelchair trollys have been stolen from the Diss Morrisons. As far as I'm concerned it is well done for trying to grow more. 😏

The Triffids have escaped!!!

It's same in Burton on trent. Bet they fill it with Christmas trees

That trolley in the centre makes the display, who ever thought of that must be a genius!

Emptying it ready for the Xmas trees probably. Available from next week.

Have you not watched Harry Potter? The plants are invisible 🤣🤣 x

Guess re organising takes time and effort

Just been sent this. Next week it will be full of real Christmas trees for those early shoppers

Hmmm. I suspect all Morrisons' plants will have been imported -and often treated with growth inhibitors to prolong shelf life. Check out your local nursery - you'll be supporting local businesses and buying happier healthier plants!

Love the display, must pop in, the garden could do with a trolley 👍

I bought a plant in Morrisons reduced to £1.50 I revived it and it’s still blooms every summer since 2010. Meanwhile, expensive plants from garden centres have come and gone disappointing me. But I’ve never tried a trolley plant.

Only if they keep the plants watered. Some i have seen are already so very dry

Morrison’s have great deals on plants etc but is seasonal. We bought two olive trees for £7 each and they are flourishing. Normal garden centre price £35.

Our Morrisons is the same! Where are the autumnal plants 🤷🏻‍♀️
