Medical Detection Dogs and our Dog Friendly cottages

Dog Friendly Cottages

Last Updated on March 9, 2023

We are delighted to announce that our Dog Friendly Cottages business is working with another fabulous animal charity. Medical Detection Dogs harness the incredible power of canine noses to detect tiny odour traces in human diseases, speeding up the diagnosis of such things as diabetes and cancer!

Our partnership doesn’t stop any of the other charitable work we are doing with other charities, including the long-standing relationship with Wood Green and our dog-friendly holiday cottage business in sunny Suffolk.

I run Dog Friendly cottages so I’m not going to get all ‘medical’ on you, as frankly, the work they are doing blows my mind but please take a few minutes to read about what this amazing charity is doing on their website.

One of our guests actually put us in touch with each other and I’m glad they did! Having a dog friendly cottage business, we attract so many dog owners looking for a luxury break with their four-legged friends and I’m constantly amazed at how many of them have connections with animal charities and associations aimed at helping hounds, as well as humans and Medical Detection Dogs, certainly is the most powerful combination of the two that I have seen!

Dog-friendly holiday cottage competition

I’m delighted to say that we are ‘partnering’ our Dog Friendly Cottages with them at Crufts 2016, aiming to bring further awareness and funds to the work they are doing, by providing a FREE Break.

Simply visit their stand at Crufts to be in with a chance of winning this free to enter competition, for a four night stay in one of our dog-friendly holiday cottage barns in Suffolk.

The prize is for a four-night midweek break later this year or early 2017 and although we can’t give it away over school holidays etc, you have a full five months in which to pick a suitable date, as long as we have availability. Full terms are on the poster.

So be sure to visit their Crufts stand and you might be coming to stay here for free!

Luxury Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage breaks in Suffolk

Set in the heart of the rural Suffolk countryside our Dog Friendly Cottages have wonderful walks directly from the door as well as within a short drive away. Situated down a country lane just outside the village of Stonham Aspal we are in the middle of nowhere, yet in the middle of everywhere. Being in the heart of Suffolk means that we have easy access for our holiday cottage guests, to all the popular places and attractions in Suffolk such as the stunning heritage coast with such towns as Southwold and Aldeburgh, as well as beautiful medieval villages like Lavenham and Long Melford in the other direction. You’re never more than half an hour or so from all the best places in Suffolk when you’re staying at Woodfam Barns.

With ambassadors such as Anne Robinson and Kate Humble, the charity has some great, high-profile support so we do hope you get to visit the Medical Detection Dogs stand at Crufts and lend your support too. And you never know, you may just win a FREE Break here! If you don’t win, do feel free to book a break anyway and come and see what all the fuss is about. You can go straight to our Availability & Prices page to check out which cottage and when would suit you.

Do have a good look around our website to check out all our different cottages; we have six Suffolk barns that sleep two adults, as well as a rambling 500 year-old Suffolk farmhouse that sleeps two!

Three of our barns have decadent Hot Tubs too!
