“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.

The Granary Barn @ Woodfarm HQ:

This feels like a million years ago now, even thought it was just 2009.

It had always been my dream to convert a Suffolk Barn. Eventually my dream came true. Then it just kinda snowballed! I believe if something's worth doing, it's worth doing A LOT!

Another week dawns in Suffolk, and I never tire of this view as the sun comes up over our Doggy exercise meadow.

To clarify, it comes up all over the place, not just our meadow. But it does do it very nicely here

Aah, the lovely meadow, beloved by this pair when we came on holiday

These two loved the meadow

Looks lovely, hope you are feeling better

Gorgeous I wish I was back there had a lovely week x

We are very excited about heading your way. Hope your feeling better x

Macey enjoyed the meadow last week too - especially once she found the burst footballs!!!Hope you’ll soon be back on that bike flashing the Lycra!! xx

Hope you’re feeling much better xx💞

It certainly does

Looking forward to staying at orwell barn in a few weeks, last stay was on the cheeky barge 😊 Hope you are feeling well and strong very soon 💐🤗

Must have missed a post. Have you had the dreaded Covid-19? What ever it was I'm glad you're improving xx

Not long till I see that view again 😍 Hope you feel better soon x

You sound heaps better, lets hope you get to John 'O' Groats safely 😊

The girls have always loved the meadow but this time Skye will be there on her own...🐶😥...... not for long though as she will have a new little sister in early November 💝....! Glad you are slowly on the mend - it’s been a bit of a long haul and the current damp mornings are probably not really helping....xx

Beautiful sunrise down here in Cornwall too, which we can actually see a bit better now that the monster Leylandii are finally coming down!! Hope you're healing well. Stay safe x

What a wonderful picture

You sound a little better. 🤞

Can't really remember what the outside world looks like, so I've been looking back through some old photos.

Here's a Pin Mill sunrise about a year ago.

Hope you like it.
