“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.

This little fella I found at the back of one of the Barns the other day!

I couldn't identify him though, so if anyone knows? 🤷

It's called the Donaldas Trumpet Moth due to its head display. It resides in USA but occasionally gets blown to these shores and found near golf courses.....

No, I think it’s the Boris Bluffer, it resides in fridges usually, but must have escaped! It’s a real pest, let’s hope we can get rid of it soon...

It's beautiful x

Very beautiful, it’s a Ghost Moth, hopefully it’s name indicates the future careers / public life of the two scummers it’s tufty hair bares resemblance too

He is sooo cute 💕

It’s definitely Boris !!!🤣🤣🤣

I think his name is Boris

And very nice they both look. X

HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all the Dads out there!

I'm very lucky that I have one, and that I am one.

The first pic is my Dad (you'll need to open the pic to see him). As you can see, the reason he is laughing is my Mum. She goes a long way to explaining why I am like I am, which in turn she gets from her Dad!

The second pic is my amazing Daughter Lauren over at Snape Maltings. She makes me prouder every day. And when you consider that she has been around on this planet for almost 11,000 days, that is a LOT of pride

Have a great day Dads xx

Ok, who would like a laugh at my expense?

Not quite sure where to begin really, but as this unfolds, it'll dawn upon you as to where it ended up!

There I was the other day, innocently transporting a dining table from one place to another, with the main body of the table on top of my car. I have a large 4 wheel drive car with a roof rack and I regularly transport things on top of it.

I am an experienced roof-racker you might say. I carry all sorts, from tables, to chairs, my kayak, things for exhibitions when we promote Woodfarm at various places etc. It's fair to say that I know what I'm doing. Usually.

Many of our guests go to Needham Market, a pretty little town just ten mins from Woodfarm Barns. There's a wonderful lake there. It's also where my Doctors' surgery is. There's also a very low railway bridge next to the lake.

On my way from A to B the other day, I figured I'd just divert quickly to pick up my prescription from said Doctor.

I had a lot on my mind. I was distracted. One might even say that I wasn't fully concentrating on the task of moving the aforementioned dining table, which is actually a family heirloom belonging to a friend.

As you can see from the photo, the height of the railway bridge is 2.3m. Now, when I secured the precious heirloom to the roof of my vehicle, I didn't measure the height. Why would I? I was only going from A to B. I had no thoughts of any diversions until I was in transit.

Ok, will leave you to work out the ending, but let's just say that 'Laurel and Hardy', or possibly 'Only Fools and Horses' spring to mind.

I can tell you that once I'd gone under the railway bridge there was no longer a requirement to finish the journey with the table on the roof rack, as it all fitted neatly inside the car.

😫😲🤷
