Relax with a book on your luxury Suffolk hen party

Luxury hot tub cottage holiday winners!

We thought the best way to launch our first luxury hot tub at our Suffolk holiday cottages was to have a caption competition with this great photo and wow, did we get lots of would be holidaymakers entering to win their free holiday!?!? And the winning caption has now been picked by the Woodfarm team…

Luxury hot tub in Deben Barn, one of our romantic self-catering Suffolk holiday cottages

This is such a cute picture and we had so many entries to wade through! We just asked you to come up with a caption for our pic for your chance to win a free holiday in Deben Barn, our hot tub holiday cottage here in sunny Suffolk. It was free to enter and open to everyone.

And that’s it! We thought it was such a cute photo that a caption competition was the way to launch our amazing Hot Tub Holiday Cottage.

The free holiday is for a four-night Monday to Friday break between November 2015 and February 2016 inclusive.

The draw took place on Friday 1st May 2015 and the winners are over the moon! It was simply the one that the Woodfarm Team found the funniest or most creative. It was just our opinion and boy, was it tough as there were some fabulous entrants!

So the winning entry was…………….

‘Sadly the budget for the sequel to the movie Hot Tub Time Machine was nowhere near as generous as the original’

Not our luxury hot tub holiday cottage in Suffolk

Congratulations to Trudi and Jon Betts, who are absolutely over the moon to have won and are now looking at their calendars to pick a date for their free holiday here in Suffolk.
