To enter please fill out this simple, secure, entry form:

If you would like to know more about why we are giving away a free holiday please read on!

Can we talk about Number 10 Downing Street for a moment please?
As I write this, there is rather a kerfuffle going on in British politics. Something to do with leaving the EU apparently. Well, we’ve kinda gone against the grain and joined them by renovating a Holiday Cottage in Italy (just for you).

This post has actually got nothing to do with 10 Downing Street, or politics; so let’s move on. This blog post is about us being TEN years old and giving away a FREE HOLIDAY to celebrate!

So… this free holiday competition. Why?

It’s all about the number 10. With 7 Holiday Cottages in Suffolk, as well as 2 Barges, our new Holiday Cottage in Tuscany will be our 10th place for you to stay!

We’ll have 10 choices for you to relax and soak up what makes Woodfarm, erm, Woodfarm. We’ve worked hard to develop a trusted brand over the years and now guests are queueing up to get a little fix of what we are all about, in Italy as well!

Ten years ago, when I set up the business, I never imagined it would build the reputation that it has. I started out providing cottages that I would want to stay in, and doing my best to make guests happy. It’s not difficult (I’m not that clever), but it seems to have worked.

The Granary Barn was our first barn, which we lovingly renovated ten years ago

Our Tuscany Holiday competition created the most incredible buzz, with a phenomenal response. We like that. So we’re running another FREE BREAK competition straight away. This time we are celebrating our 10th Birthday here in sunny Suffolk!

Yup! It’s 10 years ago that I bought a dilapidated old farmhouse and some barns with ‘potential’. I had nothing to my name, except a load of debt and a dream. Ok, getting cheesy now so I’ll quit while I’m ahead, but you get the picture. It’s been a roller-coaster ride over the last decade, but it has been worth it.

The prize is for a FREE four-night midweek break, in either The Granary Barn at Woodfarm Barns, or aboard our wonderful Dutch Barge ‘Twee Gebroeders’ in Woodbridge. You can choose!

You may struggle if you have Ad Blockers etc., on but the form does work.

Fill this form in to enter. It’ll also put you into our VIP Rewards Group, where we let you know about interesting things, exclusive offers, cancellations, etc. If you subsequently don’t want us to contact you then you can very easily unsubscribe. We never share your details with anyone because of all the GDPR gubbins and simply because we’re not stupid. You can read all about why we do these competitions and what the catch is (there isn’t one) in another blog post.

Terms & Conditions

The prize is for a four-night midweek break, Monday to Friday, in The Granary Barn at Woodfarm Barns, or aboard our wonderful Dutch Barge ‘Twee Gebroeders’ in Woodbridge.

The closing date for this competition is July 31st 2019.

It will be between 31st October 2019 to 31st March 2020, excluding bank and school holidays, Valentine’s, Xmas and New Year. Dates chosen are subject to availability of course. The prize is for two people to stay, one of whom must be at least 18 years of age, and up to three dogs. 

Please note that we cannot announce the winner first on Social Media, it has to be by email. If we do not hear back from you within 48 hours of notifying you that you have won, we will pick another correct entrant and so on until someone responds. By entering you do consent to us announcing your name on Social Media once you have accepted your prize. We’d obviously really appreciate it if you could then shout it from the rooftops!

The prize cannot be transferred to an existing booking or used in conjunction with any other offer. The prize is non-transferable, cannot be sold, and no cash alternative is offered. 

By entering this competition, all participants will be deemed to have read and understood the above Terms and our Standard Terms and Conditions (all references to payment can be ignored).

We’ll also include you in our VIP Rewards Group, where we let you know about all sorts going on in beautiful Suffolk and Tuscany, as well as giving you exclusive offers and news too. You can easily unsubscribe if you wish.

Victor Meldrew clause: If all that doesn’t suit you or you are of the opinion that “no one ever wins these” then feel free to not enter and gaze at your navel instead. We have given away many breaks over the years to some very happy people, but you’ll never be one of them. And believe me, there’s always a handful of people who whine about it not being quite right for them. Sorry, but it’s free and you are under no obligation to enter if it doesn’t suit you. I’m just giving away a FREE BREAK, with some stipulations as I do have to run a business.
