Special Occasions in your Luxury Self-Catering Suffolk Holiday Cottage

Wedding morning in our luxury Suffolk holiday cottage

Last Updated on June 20, 2022

WOODFARM HOUSE & BARNS – the perfect place to celebrate. Anything!

With the farmhouse sleeping 7 adults, plus toddlers, and all six of our barns sleeping 2 adults, plus a toddler, we can cope with large groups of family and friends, right down to intimate, romantic breaks for 2 so whether it’s a big family holiday or a romantic countryside break for couples, we have a luxurious self-catering cottage to suit you!

Birthdays

We have played host to many special birthdays, from 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th even to 80th. The more ‘mature’ celebrations onwards tend to be larger family holidays in Woodfarm House, with a smattering of children and grandchildren. You are more than welcome to put banners, bunting and balloons up on the oak beams, which are in all the cottages.

First holidays

The ideal first romantic getaway for the new love in your life. Romance is the key here at Woodfarm, with rustic charm oozing out of every oak beam, lavishly equipped and decorated cottages and privacy to simply be together.

Don’t just take our word for it… “A great little barn. Perfect for seeing in our 1st New Year together” – Paul & Penny, January 2012.

We are also a very popular destination for ‘Baby’s First Holiday’ as we provide Travel Cots and High Chairs so we do get a lot of parents coming for their first proper outing as a family with new arrivals.

Proposals

We have had several proposals here and happily join in with setting your cottage up with flowers, champagne, candles etc. in order for you to pop the question. This is what we did for a proposal in 2012 in the Granary Barn, along with Champagne waiting on ice.

Staying here in July 2012, Conor & Amanda wrote: “The perfect balance of hospitality and privacy in a beautiful location. We were so taken by the place we even got engaged here last night! We cant wait to come back.”

Honeymoons

We have had honeymoons in just about all of our barns, as well as the Farmhouse, with some amazing testimonials.

In June 2013 we even had the happy bride setting off from Stour Barn. Congratulations to Stacey & Barry.

Valentine’s

The perfect time to celebrate romance! We are always fully booked for valentines so it’s worth booking early.

Don’t just take our word for it… “It was beautiful, peaceful and blissfully happy on Valentine’s weekend.” – Robbie, February 2012.

Christmas & New Year

This is an extra special time of the year here at Woodfarm and we have always been fully booked. From the first year when we just had one holiday cottage, Woodfarm House, the following year when we added the Granary Barn and then the following year when we had the five new barns all up and running.

Our holiday cottages all lend themselves to the cosy charm you would expect from a yule-tide break in the country.

Book early to avoid disappointment!

Hen Parties

We have had a number of hen parties in Woodfarm House now, which is great as they tend to be more ‘girly weekends’ than rowdy bashes. With a DVD collection in excess of 500 here for our guests, there’s plenty to accompany a few bottles of wine and a roaring log fire in the colder weather.

Anniversaries

Whatever the Wedding Anniversary, we have a holiday cottage for you to celebrate in style. From a romantic getaway for two in one of our Suffolk Barns, to a full family celebration in Woodfarm House, sleeping seven adults, as well as toddlers.

To make it all extra special we have a fabulous team of local ‘Business Partners’
