Woodfarm house holiday cottage

500 years’ worth of history, character and atmosphere, with huge fully appointed, traditional farmhouse kitchen, including a feature cast iron range cooker as its centrepiece.

A large, oak-beamed lounge, with an inglenook fireplace and squishy sofas, leads through to your dining room. Upstairs you’ll find a king-sized bed, dressing room, and bathroom with a ‘Ball & Claw’ footed roll-top bath.

Woodfarm House Finer Details

Entering through the kitchen door, you are greeted by your large farmhouse kitchen, with its big range cooker, butler sink, and an old, informal farmhouse table to sit around for a natter. The hall leads through to the spacious sitting room with its beautiful inglenook fireplace and a further ‘snug’, which is your dining room.

The wealth of centuries-old exposed oak beams give this house such a magical and cosy, yet opulent feel. You really will be stepping back in time when you come to stay. Do be mindful that people were a lot shorter 500 years ago; taller guests may have to watch their heads in one or two places!

A quirky staircase leads from the lounge up to your bedroom with its king-sized bed. There’s also a dressing room, which leads through to your bathroom, with its wonderful ‘ball & claw’ footed roll-top slipper bath.

Woodfarm House is fully centrally heated at no extra cost. We can provide logs for your open fire, which we offer at cost as your holiday cottage is already heated.

Hot Tub Heaven

Outside this holiday cottage in Suffolk you have a fully enclosed private ‘courtyard’ garden, with a fabulous ‘indoor outdoor’ room, with your luxury Hot Tub, as well as a charcoal BBQ, and table and chairs for Al Fresco dining.

For your convenience, there’s also a really smart outside shower, right next to your Private Hot Tub.

Dog Owners

Woodfarm House is ‘dog-friendly’ with an enclosed kitchen garden, and we welcome up to 3 dogs. We even leave dog treats as well as a delicious local breakfast basket for the humans!

We also have a huge fully secure two-acre meadow for our four-legged guests to run around and play with each other, along with seating for the two-legged guests to chat as well! There’s a smaller section inside for nervous or older dogs to exercise on their own.

Your historic Cottage lies on the outskirts of the village of Stonham Aspal on the Suffolk Tourist Route, along which many popular and interesting places are found, it is within easy striking distance of the lovely Suffolk Coastal destinations like Southwold, Thorpness, Dunwich Heath, Walberswick, Aldeburgh and Orford.

All our luxury holiday cottages are down a tiny countryside lane, a few hundred yards outside the village. Bikes are also available free of charge, along with free Wifi.

More reasons to stay at Woodfarm House

A quintessential Suffolk hideaway, Woodfarm House is a thatched cottage that dates all the way back to the 1500s, even if it has enjoyed plenty of modern upgrades since then. Tucked away at the edge of the Woodfarm Barns estate, the Cottage is equipped with a king-sized bed to sleep two guests, as well as a double futon in the dressing room, which is fine for a couple of wee ones. Woodfarm House has a fully-enclosed private courtyard. Encased in this courtyard is a private hot tub that benefits from being part of an ‘indoor-outdoor room’ with stunning views of the farmhouse.

FUN FACT – At any given time, there are approximately 18,000 people enjoying the relaxing comfort and luxury of a hot tub. 18,000 soakers can’t be wrong, and we invite you personally to join them in a quest for greater comfort and luxury in life.
