ITV & Woodfarm Barges (I’m on the telly!)

So there I was aboard Onderneming last week and ITV turned up! I was happily minding my own business when reporters Kate Prout and Becky Jago turned up and said hi!

They were filming a piece on dog walking in Suffolk as part of the ITV series ‘Tales & Trails; Dog Walks in East Anglia’. They’d stumbled across us online as somewhere dog walkers could stay and enjoy some luxury whilst their dogs could enjoy some nice walks so they thought they’d pop along and have a look.
I did always dream of being on your screens as a rock star but at the age of 53 that seems to have eluded me! However, I have now appeared on ITV in my other persona as the owner of a luxury Holiday Cottage and Barge business so I’m happy with that!

We have had some amazing publicity this year, what with Onderneming featuring in The Times “Most Unusual Holiday Houses in Britain”, and Twee Gebroeders featuring in their list of “Love Nests: Great Places for Two”. On top of that we had a fabulous 6-page spread in Dog Friendly Magazine, featuring our Barns and also a stay aboard Onderneming. You can read all about that one in our blog post.

I’m so pleased that our Barges have taken off in the year since I added them to the business but didn’t imagine we’d have this much publicity!

Becky was behind the camera this time, just learning how that side of the industry works, as she’s normally presenting on ITV. Kate was doing the grilling in front of the camera with me. I thought they’d just pop on board and ask me a few questions but they had a really good look around, shot lots of footage and stayed for a good natter afterwards. They made it great fun and kept me as calm as I could be! Becky loved it so much she booked a stay!

Maybe I’ll be on the Old Grey Whistle Test or Top of The Pops next week? (showing my age!)
